Introduction to Quantum Computing

The University of Chicago via edX XSeries


This program serves as an introduction to quantum computing by teaching learners the foundations. It helps them develop an intuitive understanding of the physics that underlie quantum computation, the basics of the mathematical operations, and the rudiments of programming quantum computers. The program has as prerequisites only algebra and programming.

The first course focuses on the basics of using one- and two-quantum bit (qubit) operations to solve problems. In the second course, learners take a deeper dive into quantum programming and further explore how to use quantum programming languages to implement quantum algorithms.


Courses under this program:
Course 1: Introduction to Quantum Computing for Everyone

This first course in quantum computing is for novices and requires learners to have only basic algebra. It covers the future impacts of quantum computing, provides intuitive introductions of quantum physics phenomenon, and progresses from single operations to a complete algorithm.

Course 2: Introduction to Quantum Computing for Everyone 2

This course focuses on the mathematics, programming, operations, and algorithms of quantum computing
