About the programme
In recent years, lighting technology has undergone a revolution, including intelligent and interactive control of light in rooms. Moreover, new lighting technologies and use of interactive screens are becoming increasingly visible in the public space. Therefore, professional and highly educated lighting designers are sought after. Companies are looking for people who understand lighting design, are able to work with existing technologies and to develop new and smart solutions.
The Lighting Design programme of Aalborg University gives you a future-proof education with an attractive international profile. All teaching is in English.
As a master's student in Lighting Design at AAU-Cph, you will be working with both daylight and artificial light in the crossing between three scientific fields; media technology, engineering and architecture. The purpose of the programme is for graduates to have an academic-technological as well as process-related approach to lighting design, and not least, a particular sense in designing with light in virtual and physical spaces. During the programme, you will be working with the interplay between the basic physical elements of light, lighting technologies, digital media, context, human factors and design methods.
