PHYS 14
Programming Quantum Computers Winter 2022

Class Details

This course will introduce the basic concepts of quantum computing and provide experience with the programming language Qiskit, a Python-based software development kit that can interface with IBM Quantum computers. No programming or quantum experience is necessary, only a desire to tinker with code and learn a bit about qubits. Students will complete a series of lessons on quantum computing, then work on projects of their own, and write short (1 page) abstracts and/or give presentations summarizing their projects at the end of the course.
The Class: Format: lecture
Limit: 15
Grading: pass/fail only
