Information Session for Co-Terminal Master's Degree in Lighting

April 2nd at 6:00 PM, Greene Building

Have you ever thought of adding a co-terminal Master’s degree in lighting to your current undergraduate major? The study of lighting involves a number of disciplines including architecture, environmental science, engineering, physics, biology, plant-pathology, neurology, biomedical engineering, business, and others. A co-terminal Master’s degree in lighting can set you apart from other graduates within your field of study and open up more doors for potential employment or further graduate study and research. The degree also includes the opportunity for paid externships with leading firms and manufacturers.

The Lighting Research Center (LRC) will hold an informational session about a co-terminal Master’s degree in lighting on Monday, April 2nd at 6:00 PM in the second-floor studio of the Greene Building.

Come join us to learn about the possibilities that a degree in lighting can offer to you. We will answer your questions and provide you the information you need to get started!

About the Lighting Research Center
The Lighting Research Center (LRC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is the world's leading center for lighting research and education. Established in 1988 by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the LRC conducts research in solid-state lighting, light and health, transportation lighting and safety, energy efficiency, and plant pathology. LRC lighting scientists with multidisciplinary expertise in research, technology, design, and human factors, collaborate with a global network of leading manufacturers and government agencies, developing innovative lighting solutions for projects that range from the Boeing 787 Dreamliner to U.S. Navy submarines to hospital neonatal intensive-care units. In 1990, the LRC became the first university research center to offer graduate degrees in lighting and today, offers a M.S. in lighting and a Ph.D. to educate future leaders in lighting. With 35 full-time faculty and staff, 15 graduate students, and a 30,000 sq. ft. laboratory space, the LRC is the largest university-based lighting research and education organization in the world.
