Challenge

Quantum computing represents a significant leap forward in human's ability to process information. Quantum computers can handle complex problems much more efficiently than classical computers. They have the potential to not only solve problems that are currently intractable for classical computers but also to perform certain calculations much faster than today's super computers. For companies, the integration of quantum computing into their business processes holds great potential due to speed and precision advantages. For developers and management to be able to assess the technology, a sound knowledge of possible applications and corresponding algorithms is required. In addition, academic education of the next generation and further training of existing specialists in quantum applications are of great importance. 

Methodology

Participants will learn to assess the key technology of quantum computing, how to deal with it and how to use it in a targeted manner. How do quantum computers work, what principles are their programming based on and why does the so-called "quantum advantage" promise a disruptive change in the IT industry? In the Quantum Lab, participants learn about the phenomena of the quantum world, the differences between today's system architectures and the basics of their programming. Starting from the principles of quantum mechanics, we will embark on an exciting journey towards their industrial use and solve real-world use cases.

Result

Using three transfer formats, you will learn to assess the key technology of quantum computing according to your requirements, how to deal with it and how to apply it in a targeted manner. The quantum computing training aims to provide interactive quantum education for developers, researchers and students. To this end, in-depth knowledge of quantum algorithms is taught and initial programming experience is gained. The course also addresses issues at management level and provides a far-reaching overview and specific recommendations for action on current trends, market developments and the competitive landscape in the field of quantum computing.

 

We offer the following training formats:

Training Offers:

Short Training QC Compact (Management Level)

How does quantum computing (QC) work, what principles is its programming based on and why does the so-called "quantum advantage" promise disruptive change in almost all branches of industry? In our one-day introductory workshop, you will learn about the QC basics, the innovation network with its opportunities and challenges and gain insights into potential applications. 

 

The short training course is aimed at:

People interested in quantum computing, management without prior technical knowledge, politicians, decision-makers, cross-disciplinary enthusiasts

3-day Industry Training

The industry training course consists of four modules and provides comprehensive knowledge in the field of quantum computing - from basics and hardware to algorithms and applications. Participants learn how to assess this key technology, how to deal with it and how to use it in a targeted manner. The course aims to provide a general understanding of quantum technology and to develop the necessary key skills for industrial application. 

We invite participants to join us in learning about the phenomena of the quantum world, the differences in today's system architectures and the basics of their programming. From the principles of quantum mechanics, we will follow the exciting path to their industrial application and deal with various use cases, for example in the fields of quantum chemistry, finance, optimization or quantum machine learning.  

 

The course is aimed at: 

People interested in quantum computing, company representatives from industry, technology scouts, innovation managers

5-day Autumn School

Using four modules and additional excursions, the Autumn School provides comprehensive knowledge in the field of quantum computing in an interactive way - from basics and hardware to algorithms and applications. Participants learn how to assess this key technology, how to handle it and how to use it in a targeted manner. 

The course aims to directly implement what has been learned in hands-on programming sessions, to convey a general understanding of quantum technology and to build up the necessary key skills for industrial application. External speakers will give an excursion into the application areas of quantum chemistry and post-quantum cryprography.

 

The course is aimed at: 

Those interested in quantum computing, company representatives from R&D, researchers, students
