Why choose
this course?

Quantum computing has the potential to revolutionise many industries and scientific disciplines. With the UK government pledging to invest £2.5bn in quantum computing over the next 10 years, there will be a demand for people who understand the potential of quantum computing, the problems it can solve and how to solve them.

Our Applied Quantum Computing MSc is designed to train these professionals. The first such course in the UK dedicated to the subject, this is a truly interdisciplinary programme which welcomes not just physicists and computer scientists but graduates from a range of other disciplines such as engineering and economics.

Taught within the School of Mathematics and Physics, the course draws on Surrey’s ground breaking research at the forefront of quantum technologies and will be taught by academics who are leading this field. The University is part of the £6m Quantum Technologies for Fundamental Physics programme.
