Quantum encryption classes will be integrated into some of St. Cloud State University's technology classes.  The cutting edge technology is a system that secures computers for inter-connectivity, and quantum encryption means computers are less susceptible to attacks by other powerful and fast computers.

The office of University Communications says that the university has earned nearly $230,000 in grant funding from the National Security Agency. Professor of Information Systems Mark Shmidt says that the focus on quantum encryption is based on their resistance by quantum computers.

The first courses will be offered this coming summer through online classes. Traditional classes will start the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year.

Lack of educational expertise in the field is said to be why the program is uncommon.
