EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Delivering Quantum Technologies


UCL hosts the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Delivering Quantum Technologies.

Quantum technologies involve the control and manipulation of quantum states to achieve results not possible with classical matter; they promise a transformation of measurement, communication and computation.  The highly-skilled researchers who will be the future leaders in this field must be equipped to function in a complex research and engineering landscape where quantum physics meets cryptography, complexity and information theory, devices, materials, software and hardware engineering.  UCL’s CDT in Delivering Quantum Technologies brings together a team of almost forty academic experts with key players from commerce and government and a network of international partner institutes to train those research leaders.

Students in the CDT will take a broadly based training year before undertaking a PhD research project in one of the centre’s research groups.  They will also be trained in entrepreneurship, outreach and scientific communication.  As breakthroughs in quantum technologies begin to move out of the lab and into industrial applications, these students will be uniquely placed to benefit.  Staff at UCL have strong links with enterprise and industry, giving students a short-cut directly into the heart of business. UCL’s location in central London means unparalleled access to partner institutions around the world, from multinational companies to top universities, as well as to UCL’s own world-class laboratory facilities.
