Master of Quantum Technology
The Master of Science in Quantum Technology offers a variety of courses covering noise and measurement, quantum mechanics, imaging methods and systems, programming for scientists, quantum industry, and rapid prototyping and systems integration.
Through this program you will also develop a critical understanding of the role of Science in Society, a vital skill that will enable you to identify, communicate and respond to societal needs and global challenges.
The Advanced program provides you with the opportunity to extend your practical, coursework experience in precision quantum technology with the development and implementation of a research projects supervised by an academic. You will be required to develop expertise in a nominated area through independent research and completion of a dissertation. It is particularly relevant to those who wish to benefit from the research strengths of ANU.
Access the Southern Hemisphere’s most highly-integrated supercomputer and filesystems, Australia’s highest performance research cloud, and one of the nation’s largest data catalogues—all supported by an expert team.
Sean's research is primarily on experimental ultracold atoms and degenerate quantum gases in optical lattices, using them to form analogue quantum simulators for many body quantum systems, conduct quantum atom optics experiments and study fundamental atomic physics.
A masters degree specialising in quantum technology provides you with the skills to pursue a career at the forefront of the emerging quantum industry, including quantum computing, quantum communication, quantum metrology, policy surrounding quantum technologies or further study. ANU has a strong reputation in the field of quantum science, meaning our graduates are highly sought-after and go on to find interesting careers in a range of areas. A Master of Science in Quantum Technology (Advanced) can also lead to a PhD.
If you graduated from an Australian university, UAC will be able to access your results in most cases. However, you may be asked to provide transcripts or other documentation, so it is a good idea to prepare your records just in case.
You can still apply before you complete your Bachelor Degree if you are in your final year, and you must advise UAC in your application. You may need to provide a copy of your academic transcript directly to UAC as soon as you complete your degree. UAC will provide instructions during the application process.
There are three assessment rounds in each semester. Applying in the first round will give you three opportunities to be assessed and accepted, giving you the best chance of being offered a place at ANU.
