Applied Algebra: Cryptography, Quantum Information, Coding Theory

The ACCQ study track gives an introduction to several domains of computer science and telecommunications:  symbolic computation, coding theory, cryptography, and quantum information theory, which all rely to a certain extent on a common algebra based mathematical background.
These domains will be studied mostly from a theoretical point of view which, together with the MITRO track, might constitute a first step toward a research career

Students can also choose courses from related but more practical and applied  study tracks, such as SOCOM, RES, and SR2I as a complement. Such a choice would help them prepare for careers in communication systems, networks, or security engineering.
Students are expected to have previously acquired a high level in mathematics, even if no official prerequisite is needed.
