Developing a quantum-ready workforce


Create opportunities for students to learn, contribute, and build the future of quantum computing. Join universities and educators globally who are using world-class Azure Quantum curricula and resources to advance learning in the field of quantum and to meet the current and growing need for a workforce skilled in quantum.

Enhance student learning in quantum computing courses with:

  • The latest quantum hardware from a single cloud service—including trapped-ion, superconducting, and cold atom qubit approaches from providers such as IonQ and Quantinuum.
  • The ability to write once and run on multiple platforms.
  • Q# for high-performance runtime and resource estimation.
  • The flexibility to choose your language and SDK with native Qiskit and Cirq support.
  • Ready-to-teach, university-level curricula including programming exercises for quantum computing courses.
  • $500 in free Azure Quantum credits for all students—and larger grants up to $10,000 for educators.

Additionally, collaborate with other educators by joining the Azure Quantum Network—promoting workforce development programmes, developing new educational approaches, and participating in exciting hacks and contests.

Students can start their hands-on exploration of quantum hardware for free with Azure Quantum credits.
