Coursera for HKUST – Are there quantum parallel universes?

The 20th century was known as the century of physics. Do you know what are the most interesting breakthroughs in physics?

As Elon Musk says, “Physics teaches you to reason from first principles rather than by analogy". Modern physics is an ideal arena for training our minds with the first principle thinking.

Professor Wang Yi from the Department of Physics has completed the development of the second course in his MOOC series which focuses on Quantum Mechanics and Atoms. Please join us in this course and stay tune for the third one which will be available in a month time.

ENROLL in any of this MOOC series!

  • Why quantum computers?
  • Is Schrodinger’s cat dead?
