About

The Architectural Lighting Design programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology is based on a new approach to light and light planning – a combination of visual, physical and biological-based experience and knowledge applied to design, technology and health. 

Overview

The Architectural Lighting Design programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology provides an in-depth understanding of the field through scientific-based knowledge and practical experience in the area of artificial light and daylight. The programme gives the students the ability to apply advanced knowledge in this area, in both practical and academic situations.

The programme uses innovative teaching and learning methods such as structured lectures and peer-review methods. Interactive sessions create a constructive learning environment in which understanding of the subject is built through the interaction of students and teachers via presentations and open discussions, tutoring and workshops. The education mixes theory and practice and, for this reason, we perform full-scale studies, via prototypes and mock-ups, in order to trigger the first-hand experience of light within architecture. Furthermore, laboratory sessions allow an in-depth understanding of physical and visual phenomena. A series of motivational lectures are offered throughout the programme, where acclaimed international and national lighting designers, architects and researchers share their knowledge and expertise.

Career

Lighting is an expanding field of knowledge. In recent years there has been a growing demand for the lighting design expertise, as lighting designers understand the role of light and lighting in architecture, interior spaces and urban environment. They can add important value to a project by enhancing visual performance, energy efficiency, sustainability, safety, well-being and health. There are plentiful job opportunities for architects, designers and engineers with lighting design competence.

Graduates primarily work in lighting design or architectural studios or as self-employed consultants. Employers might also be construction companies, lighting manufacturers and public or private operators. Students graduating from the master's programme in Architectural Lighting Design have also pursued doctoral studies (PhD studies) at KTH or in other national or international universities.
