Design automation tools and software have been crucial for the development of classical circuits and systems. They enable faster and more reliable design cycles, reduce human errors, and allow for complex and large-scale designs. In the domain of quantum computing, the corresponding design automation methods (which have been developed over the past decades) remain heavily underutilized. The Munich Quantum Toolkit (MQT) makes substantial contributions towards leveraging this latent potential. For many important design tasks, several methods and tools have been proposed that explicitly use design automation expertise while, at the same time, considering characteristics of quantum computing. As the quantum computing landscape advances towards Fault-Tolerant Quantum Computing (FTQC), the MQT aims to support researchers, developers, and practitioners in the near-, middle-, and far-term future by providing a comprehensive suite of tools and methods.
