Why choose Bristol?

Student Q&A

Bristol’s Quantum Engineering CDT offers a unique training and development experience for those wishing to pursue a career in the emerging quantum technologies industry or in academia. Our students are given the opportunity to put their burgeoning knowledge of science and engineering into practice from the outset. 

Our ‘cohort’ approach to learning – through peer-to-peer teaching, group lab projects and research challenges  creates an environment that is both stimulating and empowering. It supports students in the development of leadership skills and in the creation of personal support networks, and offers a first-class foundation for developing and completing a PhD project.

The centre’s core staff are world-leading scientists and engineers with a proven track record in passing that knowledge and expertise on to others. This is supplemented by access to a broad technology base as well as a network of both academic and industrial partners across the world - with whom students actively collaborate by way of secondments and conference attendance.

Bristol is also fast becoming the UK's answer to Silicon Valley with the biggest silicon industry in Europe,  fuelling the growth of the digital communications sector and inspiring international companies like HP Labs and Toshiba to base their research in our city. There is no better place to be for the research and development of these emerging quantum technologies than Bristol, our own Silicon Gorge.
