Home for quantum research

Discover more about our research aims and how you can get involved.

The Centre for Quantum Science and Engineering (CQSE) is a cross-disciplinary home for quantum research at The University of Manchester.

We deliver internationally renowned research and training across specialisms from fundamental physics to applied materials engineering. CQSE encompasses research based within the world-leading National Graphene Institute (NGI), the Photon Science Institute (PSI), and our departmental research activities across our Schools and the Faculty. Our core focus is on the development of quantum 2.0 technologies, exploiting quantum effects with revolutionary capability in imaging, timing, computing and sensing. This activity supports our primary aim of training a new generation of scientists and engineers and acting as a ‘front-door’ for industrial collaboration to deliver quantum 2.0 advances.

Our aims

  • Quantum computer closeup 3d render
  • Molecular, DNA and atom model
  • Students listening to a university lecture, one student using a laptop has a raised hand.
  • Industrial machine part
