Course prerequisites: none.

Course purpose: This course provides an introduction to quantum computing. It will feature the three pillars, architectures, programming, and algorithms/applications of quantum computing. Its focus is on the applicability of problems to quantum computing from a practical point, with only the necessary foundational coverage of the physics and theoretical aspects to understand quantum computing. Simulation software will be utilized complemented by access to actual quantum computers to prototype problem solutions. This should develop a better understanding of how problems are transformed into quantum algorithms and what programming language support is best suited for a given application area. The course will require significant amounts of background reading plus presentations, projects and exercises per participant.

Course objectives: By the end of the course, you should be able to do the following things:
