Hi everybody, I am currently a final year undergraduate student studying Electronic Engineering with my focus being Silicon Photonics. On exploring the advanced topics, I came across quantum computing and I have great interest in knowing more about it. Searching the web I found that some quantum computing developments are looking into the field of photonics and the feasibility of using optical devices to build the quantum computer. It looks what I am learning might extend to this, studying master seems an option. Please forgive me for being ignorant, but regrettably things are a bit confusing to me at the moment. I do not have much knowledge in quantum mechanics; I have little ideas with what the next step could be if I would like to do research work in quantum computing. It requires a wide range of knowledge and in-depth understanding of several fields; things like classical computing and quantum physics sounds the important pre-requisites for any steps further. Do you think I should pursue my study with a master degree in Electronic Engineering, or start over with a bachelor degree in physics or computer engineering? I understand these questions may be silly to raise and quite late for a third year student to realize......but I do hope to hear from you some advice and what are the essential things to learn. Many thanks for your kind attention.
