The Art and Technology of Lighting

Lighting uniquely blends art and science through the use of electronic and mechanical controls. This program offers a broad selection of Lighting courses addressing design, controls, and how light can be manipulated through reflection, color temperature, dimming, lenses, IoT, and much more. Additionally, courses may be included that involve the use of natural light for a variety of purposes through daylight harvesting, fenestrations, filters, lenses, shades, films, and interlocking woven coils, textiles, plastics, and metals. Additionally, light components which may impact heat load, solar heat collection, or energy generation and storage, may also be located here.
