Professional Certificate in
Quantum Computer Systems Design
UChicagoX

What you will learn

  • Learn examples of how classical software techniques can be applied to make quantum systems more reliable and efficient.
  • Learn how to think about the overall design of a quantum system and how the software and hardware work together.
  • Develop unique skills to be more competitive in seekinga position in quantum software development.

This course explores the basic design principles of today's quantum computer systems. In this course, students will learn to work with the IBM QisKit software tools to write simple quantum programs and execute them on cloud-accessible quantum hardware.

Textbook: Quantum Computer Systems (QCS). Ding and Chong.
