O que eu aprenderei?

Quantum technologies involve the control and manipulation of quantum states to achieve results not possible with classical matter; they promise a transformation of measurement, communication and computation. The Quantum Technologies MRes + PhD (incorporating the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Delivering Quantum Technologies) offers a 1+3 year programme in both theory and experiment.

About this degree

Our programme covers a broad range of research themes from engineering-focused development of technological products to foundational research. We offer an entry stream for engineers and computer scientists with little or no prior experience in quantum mechanics, as well as students with a physics background, as part of the MRes. The aim of the MRes is to provide a common skills background, as well as allowing students to specialise their interests via their MRes research project, leading to the selection of their PhD topic.

PhD supervision will be offered by supervisors across four departments at UCL with world-leading research profiles in quantum technologies. The programme leads to a PhD in the departments of Physics and Astronomy, Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or Chemistry. The opportunity will also be offered for students to base their PhD studies in leading research groups in the growing quantum technologies commercial sector in the UK.

Research Areas

  • Atomic and Molecular Systems
  • Electronic Quantum Circuits
  • Quantum Computing
  • Quantum Cryptography
  • Quantum Information Theory
  • Quantum Technologies
  • Spin Qubits

About this degree

The first year of your programme will be spent taking the new MRes (Master of Research) degree in Quantum Technologies. This in turn will have several stages.

  • The Foundation Stage - this lasts two weeks
  • The Taught Stage - consisting of three 9-week cycles, focused on the fundamentals of quantum technologies, including quantum information and computation, quantum electronic, atomic and optical devices, quantum communication and quantum metrology.
  • The Project Stage - consists of two parts: a 5-week Group Project followed by a 15-week Individual Research Project. The longer Individual Project provides an opportunity to become embedded in one of the CDT research groups, and a chance to try out potential research areas you may be interested in for your PhD project.

The foundation of your career

Quantum technologies are a rapidly growing area of research in both academic, and increasingly, industrial environments. There is a need for highly-skilled researchers to lead this developing field, with a rare and diverse range of skills and expertise. Graduates of this doctoral programme will be highly employable both in academic research and as leaders of these new industrial areas.


The field of quantum technologies has seen significant government and industrial investment in recent years. We expect most graduates of this programme to enter research in both academic and industrial environments, but the diverse skills offered by the programme will equip you for a wide range of career paths.
