Quantum mechanics (also known as Quantum physics) deals with the behaviour of very small things like atoms and subatomic particles. It is behind the technological advances that make modern life possible and its applications in the future are potentially infinite. It is very likely that companies will soon have to start employing experts in quantum physics to implement quantum technologies into their systems.

Get an introduction to quantum mechanics with these free online courses from major universities and institutions worldwide, or for more advanced topics, consider the last three courses from MIT.
