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.
How to apply
The University of Bristol welcomes applications from international students and accepts a wide range of qualifications for postgraduate study. If you study or have studied at a university outside the UK, please select the relevant page for further information on qualifications, scholarships and education representatives in your country/region: bristol.ac.uk/international/countries
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 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.
