Preparing the quantum workforce of the future

by Lukasz Cincio

Los Alamos National Laboratory established the Quantum Computing Summer School. A 10-week immersive program, the school accepts students from all over the world to receive tutorials from quantum computation experts, and gain hands-on experience and one-to-one mentoring from Los Alamos researchers who conduct cutting-edge quantum research.

The program, now in its second year, accepts students ranging from undergrad to doctoral programs from a variety of disciplines, including physics, computer science, engineering, math and others. Fifteen students out of more than 250 applicants were accepted this year – five more than for last year’s program.
