Update: Applications for the Summer School are now being processed, and responses will be sent out on July 20th.

UCLQ’s Undergraduate Summer School in Quantum Technologies is returning in 2018!

Aimed at undergraduates with a background in engineer 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.

From September 3rd-7th, students will have the opportunity to attend 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 change to work hands on in quantum technologies, including fabricating nanoscale devices and programming current-generation quantum processors.

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 deadline for applications is Midnight (GMT), June 15th, 2018. To apply, please upload a CV and a statement of purpose at
