This roadmap emphasizes the central role that NSE and physics play in the growing field of quantum information and nanotechnology. The roadmap is compliant with either the focused or flexible physics option and results in an NSE+Physics double major. Courses developing analysis and computational skills are placed earlier than usual.
UROPs among NST faculty and at RLE are strongly encouraged.
