CQC²T is dedicated to developing the next generation of scientists to join us in the race to build a scalable quantum computer. We offer a range of activities to help students find the best pathway to careers in science. We provide learning opportunities for students to develop their passion for maths and physics enabling them to make career choices in STEM.

Our Centre offers a variety of opportunities for high school students (Years 9-12) to discover quantum computing and quantum communication technologies. From open days to work experience programs, there are many ways to explore these exciting fields of research.

    Tuesday, 7 October 2024
    Showcasing the state-of-the-art facilities at the UNSW Kensington Campus, CQC²T is opening our doors this September school holidays. Visit our Centre to be introduced to quantum physics and for many your first taste of university life. This is a science-led day filled with talks and tours of our labs including practical demonstrations and an opportunity to speak to those currently working in this exciting field. This is the perfect opportunity for students contemplating STEM careers, with a passion for physics, maths, engineering or coding.

    CQC²T Work Experience Program

    FULL (Applications closed)
    29 July – 2 August 2024 

    CQC²T are taking expressions of Interest for 2024
    The CQC²T Work Experience Program is a week-long opportunity for high school students who are high achievers in maths and physics. This experience is designed to introduce participants into a research-led workplace, providing an engaging experience and an introduction to what it’s really like to work at the cutting edge of research.

    Our researchers will team up to provide students with informative sessions introducing quantum physics. Sessions include ‘Erbium in silicon’, ‘What noise does to qubits – mapping noise’, ‘Coding for quantum computing’ and more. Students spend much of their time in our labs, interacting with equipment and building a foundation for understanding what a career in STEM is really like.

    Students will be asked to present their learnings at the end of the week. Spaces are limited, applicants will be asked to provide their CV and/or a letter of recommendation from their STEM teacher.
