Inspiring the Next Generation of Scientists
A 2020 report from CSIRO revealed that Australia’s quantum technology industry has the potential to create 16,000 new jobs and over A$4 billion in revenue by 2040, while spurring breakthroughs in drug development, industrial processes and machine learning.
At CQC²T, we are focused on inspiring our future quantum scientists and engineers. Through educational resources on our website and ‘hands-on’ outreach programs – our aim is to open students eyes to Australian leadership in quantum computing research and explore what’s possible.
To get you started – our team have pulled together some resources to answer your questions about quantum computing, explain how a quantum computer works and how you can become a quantum scientist. If you have any more questions let us know – we would be happy to answer them.
So, what is a quantum computer?
A quantum computer is a machine that performs its calculations by harnessing the unique features of quantum mechanics. A technology that will solve in hours or minutes problems that would take conventional computers – even supercomputers – centuries.
- Frequently asked questions about quantum computing
- Learn about quantum computing concepts and how a quantum computer works
What does a quantum researcher do at CQC²T?
- Meet our teams from CQC²T
- Watch some of the team at work and presenting their research
- Take a virtual tour of our UNSW Sydney STM lab at CQC²T (Go to the map or drop down menu and select Quantum Computation)
How can I learn about quantum computing and how do I get involved?
To help grow the pool of budding quantum computing researchers, CQC²T hosts outreach programs across our seven universities – to engage students from the primary level, through secondary and all the way through to our research leaders. Learn more about some of our CQC²T outreach programs and the STEM programs we support:
- CQC²T Open Day at UNSW Sydney
- Growing Tall Poppies Program at Griffith University, QLD
- National Youth Science Forum, ACT, QLD
