For example, traditional computers are limited by the speed of light, but quantum computers are not. They can take advantage of a phenomenon called quantum entanglement, which allows them to instantaneously communicate with each other regardless of distance. This could potentially allow for massive parallel processing and incredibly fast calculation.
Studying a Masters in Quantum Computing or Quantum Technology could enable you to learn about topics such as big data, quantum entanglement and quantum cryptography.
The nature of the subject means that most MSc Quantum Computing programmes will be delivered via lectures and workshops, with courses culminating in an extended dissertation project.
In terms of entry requirements, you’ll usually need a Bachelors degree in a relevant subject, such as Mathematics, Physics or Computer Science.
Why study a Masters in Quantum Computing?
Quantum Computing is a priority research area for many governments and organisations, with many real-world applications. Machine learning, natural language processing and artificial intelligence are all areas where a Masters in Quantum Computing could help you excel.
