The aim of the paper is to show how graduated
engineering students in classical ICT view practically the advent of
the QIT. The students do their theses in El.Eng. and ICT and were
asked how to implement now or in the future the QIT in their
current or future work. Most of them have strictly defined research
topics and in some cases the realization stage is advanced. Thus,
most of the potential QIT application areas are defined and quite
narrow. In such a case, the issue to be considered is the
incorporation of QIT components and interfaces into the existing
ICT infrastructure, software and hardware alike, and propose a
solution as a reasonable functional hybrid system. The QIT
components or circuits are not standalone in most cases, they
should be somehow incorporated into existing environment, with a
measurable added value. Not an easy task indeed. We have to
excuse the students if the proposed solutions are not ripe enough.
The exercise was proposed as an on-purpose publication
workshop, related strictly to the fast and fascinating development
of the QIT. The paper is a continuation of publishing exercises with
previous groups of students participating in QIT lectures.
