Study type Taught


The so-called "2nd Quantum Revolution" promises novel, revolutionary approaches to sensing, metrology, computation, cryptography and communication by not only utilising but tailoring quantum dynamics. The importance is recognised by all major global funders who have set up dedicated programmes to support this rapidly evolving field and there is a fast industrial uptake.

The UK has invested £1 billion since 2014 in the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme in a collaboration between industry, academia and government. The Department of Physics is involved in all four UK Quantum Hubs and numerous UKRI and Innovate UK grants. As a result, we cover a wide range of quantum technologies based on cold atoms, photonic devices and semiconductor structures.

Quantum computing and simulation aims to transform the way that calculations are performed across many areas of science and industry. We do internationally leading research to develop quantum algorithms for real-world applications, and we lead national networks and projects closely aligned with local and national high-performance computing clusters, and with Strathclyde experiments building next-generation prototypes for neutral atom quantum computers and simulators developed through an EPSRC Prosperity Partnership with M Squared Lasers.

This programme provides you with the skills to participate in the second quantum revolution with control of quantum features enabling novel functionalities for industrial products and advanced research.
