MSc Quantum Technology

This Masters in Quantum Technology will provide training in the emerging area of quantum technologies, giving students advanced training in the relevant physics and engineering, while acquiring key skills in micro/nanofabrication. This MSc is underpinned by Glasgow leadership in the UK’s Quantum Technology programme. The subjects taught in this programme are the relevant science behind many of the global challenges – in energy, environment, materials, and security – identified as major themes for interdisciplinary research in the 21st century. The programme is ideal if you are keen to pursue a professional career or research in Quantum Technologies.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • This programme equips students with an interdisciplinary perspective of the physics and engineering skills needed in the field of quantum technologies.
  • You will have the opportunity to engage with companies at the forefront of Quantum Technology activities within the UK and worldwide. Some MSc projects may also be available that are co-supervised with industry. The Glasgow led Quantum Technology hub (QuantIC) has engagement with over 50 companies in the UK/worldwide.
  • This MSc will be underpinned by the one of the four quantum technology hubs within the UK (QuantIC). The University also hosts the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre, the UKs premier academic cleanroom for device micro/nanofabrication.

CAREER PROSPECTS

You will be well equipped for a variety of careers either in an academic or industrial setting. You will also be well qualified to pursue a doctoral degree. The Glasgow led Quantum Technology Hub has strong links with national labs/industry, and these present an excellent opportunity for future career opportunities.
