Enabled by the state-of-art micro-fabrication technology, novel quantum features have been demonstrated in mesoscopic devices in recent experiments. These devices, with the diversity in circuit design and the flexibility in parameter control, are promising candidates to process and store quantum information. In this talk, I will present our recent work on the quantum engineering of two kinds of devices: the superconducting microwave resonator and the nanomechanical resonator.
