Online FDP on Practical Quantum Computing by IIT Roorkee [Sept 12-Oct 4]: Register by Sept 10


The Electronics & ICT Academy, IIT Roorkee is organizing an Online Faculty Development Program on Practical Quantum Computing using Qiskit and IBMQ from September 12 to October 4, 2020.
This course will introduce you to the basics of quantum computing through a practical approach. Participants will learn about qubits and gating operations, construct quantum circuits and learn about quantum algorithms. Participants will also learn how to use Qiskit to construct and run quantum circuits on simulators and actual quantum hardware using Python.
The Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee, formerly University of Roorkee and Thomason College of Civil Engineering, is a public technical and research university located in Roorkee, Uttarakhand, India..
