A Collaboration By

Build Your Portfolio
In Quantum Technologies

In collaboration with IBM, the Campus Collective is offering a quantum computing practicum, where students will have the opportunity to work on alongside experts on real projects and receive dedicated mentorship.

The IBM tech practicum features two projects – both with the goal of developing resources for students to learn about how to approach quantum computing and enable them to embark on their own exploratory projects.

Project 1: IBM Quantum Case Studies

With a focus on developing potential applications of quantum computing in finance for a 3-5 year future, you will work on extending the tutorial content in IBM Qiskit’s developer documentation. Learn and explore new use-cases while receiving guided mentorship from experts to test the validity of ideas and concepts.

Duration: 28 Sep – 9 Nov (1.5 Month)

Individuals Selected: 5-7 students

Selection Criteria

Python development experience.
Demonstrate this by sharing your Github account or specific repositories of note.

An understanding of finance
Preferable if you have done financial modelling or options pricing with Python. Otherwise, a conceptual understanding of options pricing or portfolio optimisation will do.

Project 2: Skills Roadmap

Develop a skills roadmap that charts the direction for future content in Quantum technology and acts as an educational resource for students to gain proficiency in this nascent field. This roadmap will guide future students and will be instrumental to IBM’s educational efforts, enabling them to kickstart their learning in Quantum technology

Duration: 28 Sep – 9 Nov (1.5 Month)

Individuals Selected: 5 students

Selection Criteria
