UCLQ's annual summer school will be held online for the first time this summer.

Due to covid-19 UCLQ's  Quantum Tech Summer School will be hosted online. Aimed at undergraduates with a background in engineering and computer science (but also open to those studying Natural Sciences), the summer school will provide a comprehensive introduction to the exciting field of quantum technologies, including quantum computing and quantum communication.

For a week in early September students will have the opportunity to attend online lectures from leading experts, including:

  • Fundamentals of quantum mechanics
  • Quantum computing and qubits
  • Quantum algorithms and quantum computing architectures
  • Quantum cryptography and quantum communication
  • Key technology platforms for quantum computers

Students will also have the chance to work hands-on in quantum technologies from home. Additionally, students will be able to meet with UCLQ staff and students and have the opportunity to take part in smaller tutorials in quantum information and quantum technologies.

The UCLQ Quantum Tech Summer School will run from Monday 7 September to Friday 11 September 2020.

Course fees will be fully covered by a grant from EPSRC. Deadline for applications is 23:50 (BST) Friday 17 July 2020. Apply for our summer school.
