The technical course provides a solid theoretical background in vision, color, photometry, optics and lighting technology.
You should take this course if you work in . . .
- product development or manufacturing and want more depth in vision, color, optics and photometry
- technical sales and want to better understand the basis for many of the technical terms and metrics used in lighting
- electrical engineering or technically-oriented lighting design consulting firms and want to better balance the technical aspects of lighting with the design aspects
You should take this course because you want to . . .
- gain a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of visual performance, visual perception, photometry, color and optics, including an overview of non-visual effects of light
- acquire hands-on experience with photometric measurements
- explore the foundations and applications of important lighting metrics, including the new IES TM-30 color metrics
- sharpen your software skills through hands-on experience with popular software packages
- learn the latest about emerging lighting technologies, such as LED luminaires and lighting controls
- gain an appreciation for lighting design and the aesthetics of light
This may not be the right course for you if . . .
- you are a designer who is primarily interested in the art of lighting
- you love hands-on creative mock-ups but don’t enjoy calculations and analyses
- you are a highly experienced optical engineer working in lighting with a good grasp of important lighting metrics (but then again, a refresher never hurts!)
