The field of Quantum Computing is at a turning point, where industry driven devices with increasing complexity become readily available. This brings with it extreme engineering challenges, and Quantum Control is key to them: the task of implementing a desired dynamics on such devices. I will introduce the main motivations and research themes of Quantum Control in this context. Recent progress demands new methods of tackling high-dimensional control problems. Some of the highlights as presented in this overview are the back action of quantum measurements and the interplay of open dynamics with time-dependent driving.
