Education is a crucial element for the building of a quantum economy in New South Wales. The Sydney Quantum Academy (SQA) endeavors to foster educational programs from undergraduate and postgraduate course work to vocational education and training (VET) and professional development opportunities.

All programs are supported by the Sydney Quantum Academy, an unincorporated joint venture funded and managed in partnership between the New South Wales Government and The University of Sydney, UNSW Sydney, University of Technology Sydney, and Macquarie University.


An integral part of the SQA Scholarships

The PhD SQA Experience Program is an integral part of the SQA Scholarships and designed to provide a complementary course work stream for PhD students in the fields related to quantum science and technology.

The program will comprise four units: a core unit and three electives. The program is delivered for a 12-month period and is open to PhD students at any of the partner universities.

The curriculum will include a broad range of courses, both theoretical and experimental, including quantum algorithms, quantum architectures, quantum software and programming, quantum control, engineering quantum matter, advanced quantum electronics, and quantum error correction, among many others. Students will see the essentials of quantum information science in the core unit, and they can select their three electives to tailor their coursework to their own interests and to the requirements of their research projects.

Details about the inaugural programs will be released soon.
