These lectures are part of a course offered as a pool elective for BTech and MTech students. Microsoft will provide the scholars practical experience in and quantum algorithms with access to the Microsoft Quantum Development Kit and Microsoft Q#.

Quantum computers have the capacity to solve complex problems that would otherwise take billions of years for today’s computers to solve within weeks, days, and even minutes. This has massive implications for research in healthcare, energy, environmental systems, smart materials, and more. It also creates a need to start building a quantum-ready workforce well versed in quantum computing skills.

Leveraging Microsoft’s strength in quantum programming and algorithms, Microsoft experts will participate in lectures for three weeks on ‘Quantum Information and Computation’ – an integrated IIIT course which includes practical projects as part of the curriculum. Through Q# and the Microsoft Quantum Development Kit, students will have access to Microsoft’s GitHub resources and katas, samples and libraries.

“This collaboration with Microsoft Garage India and is part of our continued effort to the enrich the innovation journey of engineering students and make technology more accessible,” says Dr. Krysta Svore, General Manager of Quantum Software at Microsoft.

Prof P J Narayanan, Director, IIIT-Hyderabad adds, “Quantum computing is an emerging area of the future. We have a small but vibrant team of faculty and students who work on this area. Collaboration with Microsoft plays a critical role in taking IIIT’s research and expertise to a new level. Our students will receive hands-on experience for practical project work on solutions which can impact society. We are excited about the potential of quantum computing and the learning experience students will gain from thought leaders at Microsoft.”
