We study coherent dynamics of two spatially separated electrons in a coupled semiconductor double quantum dot (DQD). Coherent oscillations in one DQD are strongly influenced by electronic states of the other DQD, or the two electrons simultaneously tunnel in a correlated manner. The observed coherent oscillations are interpreted as various two-qubit operations. The results encourage searching quantum entanglement in electronic devices.
