QSA continues accelerating the technology transfer from national laboratories and universities to the marketplace and prepares the Nation’s workforce and industry to harness quantum computing’s capabilities. To cultivate the future workforce of quantum scientists, engineers, and technicians, QSA partners with community colleges, workforce boards, and industry to support ceducators and create apprenticeship opportunities for people interested in quantum science, including women and under-represented minorities. Many QSA alumni have reached prominent research positions in industry, academia, and national laboratories.
