A unique LED Lighting Institute, to be conducted by the Lighting Research Center (LRC) of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
in September, has drawn such a great response that the LRC will repeat the seminar in November.
Demand for the first ever LED Lighting Institute, scheduled for September 20-21, surprised organizers. "We knew the Institute would be popular," said Dan Frering, Director of Education at the LRC, "but we had no idea demand would be this tremendous. We filled every available seat immediately."
In November, the LRC will again team up with leading LED (light emitting diode) systems manufacturers and energy efficiency organizations to provide the two-day course for lighting system designers, manufacturers, architects, lighting specifiers, and other professionals interested in learning more about this rapidly evolving lighting technology.
The LRC designed the Institute to provide in-depth training and hands-on experience in working with the latest LED technologies for a variety of applications. This seminar is ideal for anyone interested in taking advantage of the explosive boom of LED lighting applications. LED technology is now found in an increasing number of automotive, outdoor, retail, and decorative applications.
What: LED Lighting Institute
When: November 15-16, 2001
Where: Lighting Research Center 21 Union Street, Troy, NY 12180
The LRC's Dr. Nadarajah Narendran, one of the world's leading authorities in LED and solid-state lighting technologies, will lead the seminar. He developed the two-day curriculum to cover many aspects of LED technology and applications. Subjects include state-of-the-art technology, lighting design, and human factors.
"In addition to classroom activities, students attending this institute will learn through hands-on experience in the field," said Dr. Narendran. "This is far more than a typical seminar on LED technology…if you're serious about keeping up-to-date in this rapidly changing industry, the LED Lighting Institute is a must."
LRC faculty and researchers, including Dr. John Van Derlofske and Sandra Vasconez, as well as experienced optical designers, will assist Dr. Narendran in the interactive learning sessions.
Upon successful completion of the course, participants will earn an LED Lighting Institute Continuing Education Certificate from the LRC.
Students will benefit by the small class size: enrollment is limited to just 25. The fee for the seminar is $750, which includes continental
breakfasts, buffet lunches, and one dinner, as well as all course materials and manuals.
