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!)
