Find Your Lighting Path: In-depth Education for Students and Professionals

Just over 15 years after the invention of the electric light bulb, the Lighting Program at the University of Colorado began to take shape. Lighting has been a part of the education program since the earliest days of the university.

Among the most extensive undergraduate lighting programs in the world today, the program at CU has infused the lighting industry with hundreds of highly-skilled graduates. We provide our brand of excellent lighting education to industry professionals through the Rocky Mountain Lighting Academy (RMLA) and the professional graduate Certificate in Architectural Lighting, extending the great traditions and reputation of this program beyond residential students.
