Quantum Information Science (QIS) is an interdisciplinary field involving mathematics, computer science, and physics. Appealing aspects include an abundance of accessible open problems, active interest and support from government and industry, and an energetic, open, and collaborative international research culture. We describe our student-faculty joint work in QIS that has led to many student co-authored papers in research journals. We address program structure and funding, and describe the work performed by our students.
