Entry requirements

You should normally have a lower second-class (2.2) undergraduate honours degree or above.

Your qualification should be in a physics-, engineering- or mathematics-based subject and include a basic background in some of the key areas such as quantum mechanics, quantum electronics, quantum optics, photonics or other related modern physics fields. You may also be considered for the course if you have other professional qualifications or experience of equivalent standing.

Course content

Exploration of quantum phenomena has recently led to extraordinary applications of quantum entanglement. The degree of control exerted over these systems is reflected in the term ‘quantum technology’, describing both experimental and theoretical developments in this area.

This course is for you if you’re interested in the wonders of quantum physics and have a desire to exploit its full power. Our research lies at the forefront of realising next generation quantum technologies – from quantum information processing, through quantum sensors and clocks to creating the quantum internet.

We cover:

  • ion-trap quantum processors
  • ion-photon interfaces for the projected
  • quantum internet quantum simulators
  • superconducting quantum circuits
  • devices for quantum-enhanced metrology
  • photonic devices for quantum systems.

We have reviewed all our courses to ensure the best possible learning experience for September, taking account of latest information and advice in relation to COVID-19. For updates on changes that may affect contact time, assessments, fieldwork and study abroad, check Course changes for 2020-2021. These changes are not yet reflected our online prospectus information and, of course, may be revised as the situation evolves.
