In 1894, he wrote his first scientific work which was named "The Investigation of the State of Aether in Magnetic Fields”. Two years later he enrolled in the math and physics program at the Polytechnic, Zurich and graduated with a diploma four years later.

In 1901, Einstein published a paper on the capillary forces of a straw which became one of his prestigious publications. Two years later, he gained permanent position at the Swiss Patent Office. In the same year, in 1903, he married Mileva on 6 January.

Einstein was awarded Ph.D by the University of Zurich in 1905 for his dissertation which was titled “A New Determination of Molecular Dimensions”.  The year 1905 is popularly known as“Wonder year” for Einstein where he published four well renowned papers. They include the photoelectric effect of light, Brownian motion, theory of special relativity, mass–energy equivalence called the twentieth century's most well known equation: E = mc2

In 1910, Einstein explained why sky is blue by publishing his works on the effect of light scattered by the molecules in the atmosphere. The following year, he became the associate professor at the University of Zurich. Two years later, along with his mathematician friend, Marcel Grossmann, Einstein started a new phase of research called gravitational research.

In 1915, Einstein published his famous work on the General theory of relativity. In 1921, he won the Nobel Prize for his work on the law of the photoelectric effect.
