Short courses in quantum technologies

Quantum technologies are actively reshaping industries and revolutionising the way we work.

This course at Sussex is for you if you work in a particular business sector or industry and want to upskill, or enhance the knowledge of your employees. 

Why enhance your skills in quantum? 

Quantum technologies are highly specialised and involve complex principles of quantum mechanics. As more sectors start to use quantum technologies, training will help you and your employees bridge the knowledge gap and navigate the field effectively.

Training also:

  • ensures professionals stay updated on the latest developments and emerging applications
  • addresses skill gaps, empowering employees to confidently apply quantum principles in their roles
  • helps instil an innovation culture by encouraging employees to explore and apply quantum technologies creatively
  • enhances the company's appeal to top talent and provides opportunities for professional development in a cutting-edge field.

Course structure 

The course typically lasts a few weeks and includes a mixture of online and in-person teaching. 

The in-person session will take place during the final week. This is so you can visit our research labs and gain a deeper understanding of the content covered during the initial few weeks of online lessons.


We offer modules and course content in the following areas: 

  • Fundamentals of Quantum Mechanics
  • Applications of Quantum Technologies
  • Emerging Markets in Quantum Technologies
  • Quantum Computing (Part I – Algorithms)
  • Quantum Computing (Part II – Hardware implementations)
  • Materials for Quantum and Nanotechnologies
