The link for ETH Zurich is wrong. It points to the Keio University’s group. This is the correct link to their Station Q page.

I don’t think Chapman University is active in their research. All of their members in “Institute of Quantum Studies” are emeritus professor except one. No one replies to email and if someone does, they are not sure about what is the purpose of “Institute of Quantum Studies”. Please let me know if they are really active in their research.

Is there any university where we can study masters degree in Quantum Computing online ?

Reply
    @ 5:06 pm

    I do not know of any university that provides an online course in quantum computing to earn a masters degree. However, MIT does have an online quantum computing curriculum that allows one to earn Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The next course starts on January 28, 2019 and there is a webinar to answer questions about it on January 9, 2019. For more details you can go to their web page at https://quantumcurriculum.mit.edu/.
