Intelligent Lighting Design (MSc)

Certificate program Intelligent Lighting Design

Light and lighting are essential elements for developing a sustainable living environment that supports the health, well-being, safety and performance of its inhabitants and is preferably aesthetically pleasing. The presence of sunlight forms the basis of life on earth, while the invention of artificial light shaped our current habitational ecological system. Due to the digitisation of lighting and its embedding in the rapidly growing fields of IoT, intelligent lighting is becoming an important element, for its potential to impact energy saving (smart buildings), safety (smart cities) and the user (health and well-being). This program prepares future engineers and designers that have the knowledge and skills to balance sustainability and user demands and optimise both.
