This course has been adjusted for remote participation in Sem 2 2021, however students are encouraged to attend on-campus activities if possible.

In this course, students focus on one aspect of quantum technology and gain specialist knowledge and skills under the supervision of a research or industry expert. For example, students may learn how to design, simulate, operate and/ or characterise a chosen quantum technology. Alternatively, students may investigate economic, security and/ or public policy implications of a chosen quantum technology. The course will typically involve a series of readings, technical instruction and problem solving tasks specified by a supervisor. Student learning will be assessed via a major report, learning logbook and performance, and a presentation. Students are to identify and engage a supervisor to tailor a learning plan to their interests and future research or industry aspirations. Students may complete this course multiple times as long as each instance is on a different aspect of quantum technology.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Investigate the key principles, concepts and applications of specific quantum technologies;
  2. Design, create, operate, simulate and/ or characterise specific quantum technologies or explain the economic, security and/ or public policy implications of specific quantum technologies;
  3. Develop advanced written communication and verbal communication skills.

Indicative Assessment

  1. Learning logbook and performance (30) [LO 1,2,3]
  2. Report (50) [LO 1,2,3]
  3. Presentation (20) [LO 1,2,3]

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.

Workload

The expected workload will consist of approximately 130 hours throughout the semester including:

  • Face-to face component which may consist of at least one one-hour supervisor consultation per week
  • Approximately 118 hours of self directed study which will include up to 9 hours of reading/ technical work per week and preparation for other assessment tasks.
