Where to study quantum physics

In summary, the individual is new to the forum and expresses their interest in quantum physics as they are currently studying it in their last year of high school. They are seeking help in finding a university that offers quantum physics as a major, regardless of location. The responder clarifies that most universities introduce quantum mechanics at the junior or senior level for a physics major. The individual's confusion is addressed regarding having quantum mechanics as a career, with the responder providing two possible interpretations - a job using quantum mechanics or pursuing research in the field with a Ph.D in physics.

At the bachelors level for university, the study of quantum mechanics is not done until junior or senior year- typically. Any school with a physics major will introduce you to quantum mechanics for you bachelors degree.

And I am confused about what you mean as having quantum mechanics as a career. Do you mean having a job where you use quantum mechanics? Or do you mean that you want to work on fundamental research in the area of quantum mechanics, which would mean that you need to get a Ph.D. in physics.

Hi there! First of all, it's great to hear that you are interested in studying quantum physics. It is a fascinating and rapidly advancing field of study.

There are many great universities around the world that offer programs in quantum physics. Some top universities for studying quantum physics include Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States, University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, and ETH Zurich in Switzerland. However, there are many other universities that also offer strong programs in this field.

When looking for a university to study quantum physics, it's important to consider the research opportunities and resources available, as well as the faculty and their areas of expertise. You may also want to consider the location and potential opportunities for internships or collaborations with other institutions.

I would recommend doing some research and reaching out to universities directly to learn more about their specific programs and opportunities. You can also look for rankings and reviews from current and past students to get a better understanding of the quality of the program.

Best of luck in your search for a university to study quantum physics! It's an exciting and rewarding field, and I'm sure you will find a great program that fits your interests and goals.
