The first of its kind in Australia, this 1.5 year program offers a unique mix of fundamental and applied physics to give you the knowledge and skill required to succeed in the rapidly expanding quantum technology sector.

You'll build on your technical qualifications as an engineering, computer science or mathematics professional through lectures and laboratory-based research projects. Connect with world-leading companies who are competing to employ experts familiar with the principles of quantum mechanics in technological and engineering contexts.

Studying quantum technology at UQ will give you access to our high-performance fabrication and measurement facilities in optical, superconducting, opto-mechanical and ultra-cold atomic systems. You'll develop a foundation in quantum physics theory and study advanced quantum technologies topics, such as high-precision sensing, quantum information, communication and computation, noise and error suppression, and quantum error correction.

This program features three semester-long research projects that immerse you within leading quantum science research laboratories. You'll have the opportunity to work with a variety of platforms, including superconducting devices, ultra-cold atoms, micro-mechanical systems and photonics.

The Master of Quantum Technology also provides you with a pathway to PhD study in quantum science.
