# PhD in Quantum Computing ( with CS bachelor )

#### PhD in Quantum Computing ( with CS bachelor )

I am about to complete my B.Tech ( Bachelor in Technology) in Computer Science from NIT, Surat, India. I am highly interested in Quantum Computing and for past two year I have been giving considerable time for QC apart from my regular curriculum which has no direct connection with Quantum Computing. I have been learning myself with aid of video lectures and survey papers in Internet and also have brought Books ( Nielson Chuang; Kitaev et al). Though I cannot completely appreciate the full potential in these book I feel I am reasonably comfortable with Quantum Algorithms, Complexity theory and some Quantum Information tools. Also I am quite comfortable with linear Algebra and basic structure of QM ( just Enough for QC!).

I want to do Phd in Quantum Computing ( Algorithms and Complexity Theory). But at times i am confused if going for Integrated Phd directly after my B.Tech is good for my kind of background who has no formal training in Physics/Mathematics. I have observed that most people in quantum computing are from Physics/Mathematics background at least until Bachelor.Please let me know if there are special schools seeking students from CS background for Integrated Phd (i.e directly after BS) in Quantum Computing. I am unable to decide. I expect helpful suggestions!
