The Quantum Computing Academy is a completely free training course of four months that aims at:
The Academy is addressed to undergraduates or graduates with a STEM background and will be hosted at the Federico II University of Naples campus in San Giovanni a Teduccio, where students will have access to classrooms and equipped labs for practical and theoretical lessons.
Three places will be reserved for people with disabilities (ex law 104/92).
The selection procedure for the Quantum Computing Academy will be carried out by evaluating the applicant’s curriculum vitae et studiorum and qualifications, a cover letter and the results of an online test to assess the applicant’s “Digital Readiness”. Finally, the applicant will take an online aptitude interview.
The learning program will be divided in four stages:
The official agenda will be available from September 2022.
This module introduces the concept of algorithm, computational complexity, and NP-completeness as solid background to understand the potential benefits provided by quantum computer in solving problems that are intractable on conventional digital computers.
