Quantum Computing Internship for Physics Undergraduates Program

Michael Wagman (Fermilab)

In this three-week online program, participants will gain hands-on experience programming for existing quantum computers using Python and Qiskit. This will be supplemented by daily lectures on the fundamentals of quantum mechanics and quantum computing. The program will culminate in participants running their own code on an IBM quantum computer.


What will be covered?

  • Basics of Quantum Mechanics
  • Computational Complexity: Why We Need Quantum Computers
  • Physics Simulations on Classical and Quantum Computers
  • Noisy Quantum Devices & Quantum Error Corrections
