Course content

Bristol's Quantum Engineering Centre for Doctoral Training offers a unique training and development experience for those wishing to pursue a career in the emerging quantum technologies industry. It supports the understanding of sound fundamental scientific principles and much more.

You will be given the opportunity to put your burgeoning knowledge of science and engineering into practice from the outset. From the first year of study, you will work in a state-of-the-art laboratory environment and asked to undertake both individual and group research projects.

This cohort approach to learning - through peer-to-peer teaching, group lab projects and research challenges - creates an environment that is both stimulating and empowering. It supports the development of leadership skills and the creation of personal support networks, and offers a first-class foundation for developing and completing a PhD project.

The centre's core staff are world-leading scientists and engineers with a proven track record in passing that knowledge and expertise on to others.

This is supplemented by access to a broad technology base, as well as a network of academic and industrial partners across the world with whom students actively collaborate through secondments and attendance at conferences.

Together with training in a variety of complementary skills (eg entrepreneurship, project management), this provides an unrivalled opportunity to learn and understand the foundations of quantum physics and then apply them to real-world situations.
