In 1895 Albert failed an examination that would have allowed him to study for a diploma as an electrical engineer at the Eidgenossiche Technische Hochschule in Zurich. After some time he graduated in 1900 as a teacher, teaching mathematics at the Technical High School in Winterthur. Einstein finally landed another temporary job at the patent office in Bern. His title was technical expert third class. He worked in this patent office from 1902 to 1909 holding a temporary post when he was first appointed.
He continued his education and left school early to work. Between May 1901 and January 1902 he was teacher in Winterthur and Schaffhausen. Afterwards he moved to the Swiss capital Bern. In order to make his living, he gave private lessons in mathematics and physics. At the end of 1902 Einstein's father died in Milan.
They moved to Munich from Ulm when Einstein was an infant. The family business was to manufacture electrical equipment. When the business failed in 1894, the family move to Milan, Italy. He decided to officially give up his German citizenship. With in a year, still not having completed secondary school, he failed and examination that allow him to follow studies that would lead to a diploma in electrical engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (the Zurich Polytechnic).
In 1908 he sent a second paper to the University of Bern and became lecturer there. The next year Einstein received a regular appointment as associate professor of physics at the University of Zurich. By 1909, Einstein was recognized throughout Europe as a leading scientific thinker. In 1909 the fame that resulted from his theories got Einstein a job at the University of Prague, and in 1913 he was appointed director of a new research institution opened in Berlin, the Kaiser Wilhelm Physics Institute. In 1915, during World War 1, Einstein published a paper that extended his theories.
In 1901, he gained his diploma, and became a Swiss citizen. But unable to find a teaching post, he then accepted a position as a technical assistant in the Swiss Patent Office. Later on he obtained his doctor's degree in the year 1905. During his stay in the Patent Office, and also during his breaks, he invented much of his remarkable work and also in 1908 he was then appointed Privatdozent. In 1909 Albert Einstein became a Professor Extraordinary at Zurich, and in 1911 the Professor of Theoretical Physics at Prague, he then returned to Zurich in the following year to fill in a similar post.
His studying was mainly done at home with mathematics, physics, and philosophy books (Formative). In 1894, when Einstein was 15, his parents moved to Italy, and six months later, he left the Munich without finishing his schooling to join his family in Pavia, Italy (Grosz). In 1895, he took the entrance exam for the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and failed (Formative). He renounced his German citizenship in 1896 (Grosz). He continued his education at Aarau, Switzerland and he entered the Swiss Federal Technical School in Zurich in 1896 to be trained as a mathematics and physics teacher (Nobel).
After World War II began Einstein urged President Roosevelt, after a series of letters, to push the study of nuclear war power and its effects. He was informed that Nazi Germany had the intelligence to create nuclear weapons of mass destruction. Einstein then became a United States citizen, he also remained a Swiss Citizen. He remained in the United States until his death in 1955. Einstein died of heart failure on April 16th in Princeton New Jersey.
-Albert Einstein Two years after graduating from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Einstein got a job working for the Swiss patent office based in Bern. While the work required a great deal of his attention, he managed to produce a great many publications on theoretical Physics. Primarily he worked on these in his spare time and without very much other scientific literature or colleagues to discuss with. He gained his Ph.D. Degree in 1905 by submitting one of these papers to the University of Zurich.
At the age of sixteen, Einstein took the entrance exam for a school that would give him a degree in electrical engineering, and failed. Einstein attended a Swiss school to prepare to take the exam again, and found that he so much preferred the less regimented system of teaching and the Swiss democratic attitude that he relinquished his German citizenship. On his second attempt to enter the University, one year later, he passed and was admitted for a degree in science and mathematics education.2 He graduated at the age of twenty-one. In 1893 he married a classmate from his school in Switzerland, Mileva Maric, who was Hungarian. They had two children.
1905 was the biggest year for Einstein. It is called his "Miracle Year". He published a paper on the Brownian Motion and the seminal papers on his theory of relativity. He received his doctrine from the University of Zurich for a theoretical dissertation of molecules. He published three very important papers to twentieth century physics.
