I'm an undergraduate computer science student and I'm currently taking a course in the field of quantum computing requiring projects. I've read already a huge number of articles but still cannot come up with a good idea. So I need some ideas for the project...

I was also taking other classes about Quantum Computing before so I have some knowledge. I also have a bit of knowledge in Quantum Information. Any suggestions would be really helpful! Does anybody probably have any suggestions for the inspiration?

    $\begingroup$ Does this answer your question? Quantum computing project ideas $\endgroup$ – D.W. Feb 24 at 18:50
  • $\begingroup$ Are there any constraints on your project? For example, can it be theoretical or computational in nature? That is, can it be something to do with computational complexity theory and/or quantum algorithms? Or should it be more computational in nature, i.e., running an algorithm or solving a problem on an actual quantum computer? $\endgroup$ – Peter Morgan Feb 27 at 4:22

Just my two cents on this:

It depends on what the main area of interest within quantum computing. There are tons of projects out there, that could be done through different programming languages, so that is also another factor, is there a preference for that too. Likewise, on what scale does this project have to be there are many short projects that can be looked into.

For example, Designing of a quantum algorithm: what would you do with a working quantum computer? This is a popular choice, I have seen, it can be done through some good research and possibly some psuedo-working code to show some demonstration of what a working quantum computer would be like for ex, all big applications that we use are essentially bytes of 0 and 1 so, seeing how these correlations take place and what happens when we exponentially manipulate data does to the speed of a super computer....etc.

This is just one example, there are an abundant of examples to check out, I think even a made up topic on quantum computing would work as well sort of an inquiry into what goes into a 'quantum computer', what the processes are like and how this is useful to the tech growth.

I hope this was useful.
