I am interested in the field of "quantum computing" but how does one even get a job in this field?
Im guessing this is more pHD level careers but what degree do you need to take for it?
computer science or electrical engineering? or even physics?

A lot of the focus on quantum computing is in Physics at the moment, both on the theory of quantum systems and how they encode data and potentially solve problems, and also the implementation of real-world quantum systems. Those are often in things like trapped clouds of laser cooled atoms, or nano-photonic structures, so currently well outside “standard” electronic engineering.

Take a look at the following to get you started on opportunities and how you might get into the subject, there are some PhD student profiles in there that give you a good idea of how others got into the field.
