EAGER: Curricula Development of a Quantum Programming Class with Hardware Access

The project aims to transform the landscape of computing by establishing and advancing quantum computing as a means of computational acceleration. The effort has the potential significantly advance the knowledge about quantum computing of the scientific community in general and within the areas of Computer Science/ECE specifically.

We will utilize free cloud-based access to a gate-based platform to provide hands-on experience with programming actual quantum hardware. Curricular material will include the fundamentals in physics and mathematics required to understand quantum computing, introductory material to the quantum field, and the programming environment for a cloud-based platform. We will also develop training material suitable for tutorials at major conferences/symposia across different fields as well as online courses for faculty, staff and students.
