Course description

52856WA - Advanced Diploma of Illumination Engineering and Lighting Design

Lighting design brings together art and science: requiring the designer to apply both creative flair and technical understanding to create visually appealing and effective spaces. To do this, lighting designers require a firm understanding of a range of concepts: from optics, electricity, visual perception, ergonomics, standards and regulations, energy efficiency, environmental issues, health and wellbeing; to the art of design.

The Advanced Diploma will prepare you for successful entrance and integration into the built environment design professional community.

Lighting professionals work in a variety of roles and project areas: lighting designers may be engaged to work on a range of applications, including: residential, commercial or healthcare interiors, fcade lighting, road and tunnel lighting, sports lighting, public area lighting, and theatre or events lighting.

Throughout this course, students will gain the knowledge necessary to interact with a client and produce lighting outcomes that meet technical and aesthetic needs, and are able to convey emotive elements of the visual environment to all stakeholders.

The Advanced Diploma in Lighting Design begins with a basis in key scientific concepts in light, combined with an understanding of the human factors involved in visual perception. This basis is followed by the development of fundamental lighting design theory for interior, exterior and special applications; accompanied by experience using design software tools. This design knowledge is completed with the experience offered by authentic design projects and dedicated development of skills for professional practice as lighting designers

Suitability - Who should attend?

Entry Requirements

This Engineering Institute of Technology Advanced Diploma is an accelerated, practical, work-oriented program. It is designed for engineers and technicians who have some background in the field. This includes those who have technical or ‘trade’ qualifications who want to move to the next career step, those with substantial relevant work experience who need to formalize and enhance their achievements, and those with higher level qualifications in a related field who wish to develop specialist knowledge. Practical work experience in related areas of engineering would help enormously. It would not be suitable for a student with no relevant work experience. We will review your application and may recommend pre-program studies if required.
