In a 2020 report from the CSIRO a growing quantum education ecosystem in Australia will be essential in order to fill the 10k projected quantum computing jobs by 2040.
To get started in quantum computing you should complete an undergraduate degree in science – physics, maths, computer science and /or engineering and sign up to quantum computing subjects or courses. Get started early – study science at school, advanced maths, computer science and get into coding.
Universities across Australia are investing in a range of courses in quantum technologies. Here are some of the courses from our CQC²T partners:
Internships and scholarships
At CQC²T we offer a range of projects for undergraduate and post graduate students – including Taste of Research, Honours, Masters and Exchange students. To enquire or apply for these programs contact our CQC²T partner universities.
The Sydney Quantum Academy is the initiative of Macquarie University, UNSW Sydney, the University of Sydney and University of Technology Sydney. It will help train the next generation of engineers and scientists in quantum computing, cementing Sydney’s place as the leading global city for quantum technology and ensuring NSW is a world centre for jobs in the emerging quantum economy. The Academy will:
