The Lighting Program at CU has a long history of excellence and is one of only a handful of programs to teach more than a single course in illuminating engineering. The strength of our program is derived from a delicate balance of strong technical content applied through creative design. Graduates of our program can expect to find work in areas of the lighting industry such as electric lighting and daylighting design, product sales, software design, and optical and control system product development.

The Lighting Program offers both undergraduate and graduate level courses in illumination engineering. These courses are taught through Architectural Engineering (AREN). The regular course offerings are described below.
