Harrisburg University is a private non-profit establishment offering undergraduate, graduate and certificate programs that are integrated with experiential learning with business mentors and internships. HU educates career-minded individuals in nationally critical science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) opportunities, giving them the tools to succeed in a 21st century knowledge-based economy.
In June 2020, Harrisburg University of Science and Technology launched its Quantum Computing Academy (QCA), headed by eBusiness, Cybersecurity, and Quantum Computing Professor, Dr. Terrill Frantz, to teach students how to program a quantum computer and problem solve in a very different way.
“The global demand for quantum computing at all levels is growing rapidly. Due to its nimble nature, HU is an ideal hub for developmental education that provides an environment for exploring new and innovative ideas, as well as its drive to experiment and take intelligent risks.” Frantz said.
The progressive institution offers 3-credit graduate-level quantum information science courses a Quantum Information Science concentration within its Next Generation Technologies Master’s Degree program. Furthermore, HU maintains a web page called Quantumapalooza which provides a listing of free online learning opportunities for the Quantum Computing community.
