UCalgary opens cybersecurity centre, announces partnership to advance quantum computing opportunities


The University of Calgary recently made two announcements regarding new offerings in the fields of cybersecurity and quantum computing. The university opened the Cyber Assessment, Training and Experimentation (CATE) Centre earlier this week, which will support research and training to defend against cybercrimes. “The CATE Centre is a state-of-the-art facility undertaking novel research and development while training the next generation of cybersecurity and privacy experts that are critical to the safety of Albertans and to Alberta’s economy,” said UCalgary Professor Dr Ken Barker. UCalgary also announced a new partnership with the quantum computing company Xanadu. Through this partnership, Xanadu will provide educational materials and support for UCalgary’s upcoming Professional Master of Quantum Computing program, which begins in January 2024.
