First University-based IBM Q Hub in North America


NC State will be the first university in North America to establish an IBM Q Hub as part of the global IBM Q Network, a collaboration between tech powerhouse IBM and top Fortune 500 companies, national research labs and leading universities to advance quantum computing.

The network provides early access to IBM’s quantum computing systems, with the goal of exploring practical applications important to business and science.

Starting this fall, NC State will have access to IBM Q commercial quantum computing devices, including the most advanced and scalable universal systems available. The current 20 qubit IBM Q system will be followed by a 50 qubit prototype in the next generation.
