Creating the technology of tomorrow

Developing world-class novel quantum technologies which will provide real and lasting benefits to global economies.

Find out how we can help you become a pioneer of the quantum technology industry.

Together, the University of Bristol and Cranfield University aim to create a world-leading hub to train entrepreneurially minded quantum systems engineers and connect them with the National Quantum Technology (QT) Programme. It will bring together companies, investors, and the facilities and skills essential for incubation of early-stage businesses in the emerging quantum technology industry.  QTEC focusses on four key areas:

  • Quantum Technologies
  • Systems and Design Engineering
  • Enterprise, Entrepreneurship and Innovation
  • Connectivity and Networks
The QTEC programme supports postgraduate qualified individuals through the Quantum Enterprise Fellowship Programme. Throughout the programme, fellows will develop skills in quantum engineering, business and enterprise allowing them to become the leaders and entrepreneurs who will take quantum science discoveries out of the lab and into society.  
We offer a generous year-long programme based in the University of Bristol which includes:
  • World class MBA level training and tutoring at the Bettany Centre for Entrepreneurship - Cranfield University
  • Systems Engineering and Design training with University of Bristol
  • Incubator space within the QETLabs, a world leading hub of quantum research at the University of Bristol. Directly networked in to the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme and part of a large global research and innovation community. Work alongside researchers at the front edge of quantum technolgies from across the world
  • A permanently resident Enterprise Teaching Fellow and visiting Entrepreneurs in Residence who provide mentoring and coaching
  • Direct links to SetSquared and EngineShed, the globally number one ranked business incubator in the heart of the "silicon gorge" in the south west 
  • Extensive networking and investment opportunities throughout the year
  • A £28,000 salary while you develop your business, the largest salary available for start-up and incubator courses of this type.
  • A £5000 personal travel budget 
  • Funds available for concept demonstrator development

The Hub graduates will be the CTO's of the future and we would be very keen to work on projects together that align with our own technology development programme.
