Course summary

Quantum technologies are set to revolutionise society in many ways: from creating new types of computers to solve very difficult problems, very quickly, to making uncrackable communications systems and sensors that operate beyond conventional limits. The University of Bristol has been pioneering in this worldwide effort for more than 15 years with an approach that uses light and optoelectronic technologies to implement the required devices, circuits and systems. On this programme you will gain a deep understanding of the design, fabrication and use of the next generation of integrated circuits, sub-systems and systems that combine optics, electronics and quantum engineering for applications in communications, computing, sensing, and healthcare. You will be based in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, one of the leading research-intensive departments in the UK with strong links to the Smart Internet Lab at the University of Bristol, a hub for internet research addressing grand societal and industrial challenges. Sharing units with the Quantum Engineering Centre for Doctoral Training you will be taught within the world leading Quantum Engineering Technology Labs (QETLabs) and graduate with highly desirable and emerging skills in optoelectronic and quantum information technologies.

Entry requirements

Applicants must hold/achieve an upper second-class degree (or international equivalent) in a numerate physical science or engineering discipline. Candidates with a lower class of degree, equivalent qualifications or relevant work experience may be admitted if they can demonstrate their potential for higher degree work. Unfortunately, applicants with an engineering background in Aerospace, Mechanical, Civil and Automation Engineering will not be considered suitable for this programme. See international equivalent qualifications on the International Office website. English language requirements If English is not your first language, you need to meet this profile level: Profile E Further information about English language requirements and profile levels.
