Master of Lighting Design

This English master's course includes well-proven design and planning methods for lighting design and their technical and physical background. Together with the main course on architectural lighting, courses on light art, light control and the management of light pollution are included. Aspects such as sustainability, ethical behaviour and human-centred design are taken into account. The central aim of the master's course is to qualify students of interior design, architecture and engineering sciences for the steadily growing international and interdisciplinary field of lighting design and planning.
