Quantum Engineering

The programme supports the understanding of sound fundamental scientific principles. From the 1st year of study, students are placed in a laboratory environment and asked to undertake both individual and group research projects. The course supports students in the development of leadership skills and in the creation of personal support networks, and offers a foundation for developing and completing a PhD project. This, together with training in a variety of complementary skills such as entrepreneurship and project management, provides an opportunity to learn and understand the foundations of quantum physics and then apply them to real world situations.
