Lighting design can transform the ambience, purpose and mood of a space or setting. By understanding the science and effects of lighting, spatial designers can take on a deeper and more informed approach in incorporating lighting design within their scope of work.
In this course, you will be equipped with the in-depth knowledge and skills to design environments with light. Learn the functional roles and techniques of light, its psychological and physiological effects, as well as how to optimise light consumption in different environments. You will be taken under the wings of highly experienced faculty from the School of Design, including current industry practitioners. Through our lighting simulation lab, you get exciting opportunities to explore and experiment with lighting concepts.
Look forward to emerging as confident designers in the area of lighting design, ready to flow into the strong industry demand.
