About Quantum Mechanics
Masters degrees in Quantum Mechanics involve advanced study of material properties and processes at the sub-atomic level.
Related subjects include Quantum Technologies and Microsystems Engineering. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate field such as Physics, Chemistry or an Engineering subject.
Courses in this field examine the experimental and theoretical developments associated with understanding the energy levels of atoms and subatomic particles. The study of Quantum Mechanics can develop highly precise materials, technology, and processes, improving the objects that we use in our daily lives.
Quantum Mechanics may be applied to a range of industries, most popularly those in technology and engineering. For example, you might explore superconductors and simulators to assess how materials respond to different forces of energy. This expertise in turn may be applied to automotive and aerospace engineering, and the product development of items such as safety apparel.
Alternatively, you might focus on quantum information technology, developing photonics and optical communications, as well as computer programming and software development.
Finally, you could specialise in high-precision measurements and quantum metrology, which can be applied to security systems and the development of laser technology, satellite communications and radar.

The Quantum Technologies MSc will take students to the cutting-edge of research in the emerging area of quantum technologies, giving them not only an advanced training in the relevant physics but also the chance to acquire key skills in the engineering and information sciences.
Exploration of quantum phenomena has recently led to extraordinary applications of quantum entanglement. The degree of control exerted over these systems is reflected in the term ‘quantum technology’, describing both experimental and theoretical developments in this area.
The Theoretical Physics MSc is an intensive, research-led course in which you will examine basic topics in theoretical and mathematical physics such as general relativity and quantum field theory, before exploring advanced topics such as string theory, supersymmetry and integrable quantum field theory.
The recent progress in several fields of theoretical physics (such as high energy physics, astrophysics, quantum and nonlinear optics or condensed matter physics) required numerous very sophisticated mathematical tools.
This Physics Graduate Diploma is designed both for physics graduates who are looking to consolidate and expand their understanding of physics, and for graduates from other disciplines such as mathematics or chemistry to introduce them to the main areas of the subject.
We offer postgraduate research degrees in Physics at the MPhil and PhD level in all of our major research areas such as Emerging Technology and Materials, Applied Mathematics, and Photoelectron Spectroscopy.
The School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of Sussex comprises two highly ranked departments and a lively academic community that is welcoming, stimulating and supportive. Sussex has a prestigious international reputation and is ranked amongst the top 20 universities in the UK, with both departments ranked amongst the top 15 (Guardian University Guide 2018).
Our postgraduate programmes are specifically designed to enhance your career prospects and research expertise. Students will benefit from our broad range of industrial partners and internationally leading research expertise, and will get the opportunity to work within our research groups.
