Outreach Education

We offer a number of courses and seminars to practicing professionals and others interested in improving their knowledge of lighting, including the Light and Health Instititute, a two-day hands-on seminar to teach the many ways in which light affects–and can be used to improve–health and wellbeing. The goal of this seminar is to provide attendees with the latest research as it can be applied, and the knowledge necessary to improve our modern living environments with efficient, dynamic lighting.

Graduate Education

The Lighting Research Center administers the lighting graduate degree programs within the School of Architecture at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The LRC has been offering the premier graduate degree in the field of lighting since 1990. Building on this strong foundation, the options for advanced study at the LRC have recently been expanded to include a wider range of degree options for those wishing to pursue graduate education in the field of lighting. Graduate degree options include Masters and PhD programs.
