Undergraduate Summer School In “Quantum Technologies ” By UCLQ

12 June 2017

UCLQ: Quantum Science and Technology Institute is organising undergraduate summer school in “Quantum Technologies” from 4th to 8th September. This course is aimed at undergraduates, primarily from an engineering and computer science background, who want to learn more about quantum technologies, including quantum computing and quantum communication.

This 1 week programme will include lectures from leading experts on:

  •  Basic concepts in quantum mechanics
  •  Quantum computing and qubits
  •  Quantum algorithms and quantum computer architectures
  •  Quantum cryptography and quantum communication
  •  Leading technology platforms for quantum computers

This will be a practical workshop focused course which will include,hands-on experiments in:

  •  Programming a small-scale quantum processor
  •  Nanofabrication in a cleanroom
  •  Measuring quantum devices at cryogenic temperatures

There will also be additional opportunities to meet with PhD students currently working on quantum technologies, UCLQ leading scientists, Industry representatives to find out more about their research and current as well as future technology trends involving quantum technology.

The course fees for the programme and accommodation will be paid for by the Engineering and Physical Research Council (EPSRC).Accommodation close to UCL will be provided to all attendees for 3-8th September (5 nights).
