QC Master structure

First presentation about the QC Master - 5 April 2023

IQC: Introduction to Quantum Computing

The first complete lecture on Quantum Computing from Romania, IQC: Introduction to Quantum Computing lead by prof. P.G. Popescu and with the help of dr. Andrei Tanasescu & eng. Mihai Mina (Oracle Inc.) has been introduced in Spring 2017.

Since 2017, more than 150 students took the lecture and learned quantum computing; more than 30 presentations were given during the lectures on various quantum topics and their related applications. Our students were testing more than 10 quantum simulators, and became familiar with the latest quantum technologies on the market.
