The part time programme Master Lighting Design will be offered by WINGS - Wismar University (Germany).
The aim of the professional studies course is to train lighting designers comprehensively. The highly regarded qualifications and skills gained through this degree, offer graduates the opportunity to work in many related fields. The central capability of a lighting designer, regardless of dealing with daylight or artificial light, is to design the interactions between architecture and light. Students are encouraged to investigate artistic, physical and psychological aspects of lighting, using creative and autonomous methods. This is to be done while keeping both human well-being and the standards of sustainable architecture in mind.
In the "Design Management" modules students will learn how to set up architectural lighting design working groups or units and they will understand how to organize the office as well as improve the performance of the project. Students will understand market analysis tools and the strategic management approach. They will develop marketing and business-plans. „Design Management" also includes the vision of design as part of the customer value chain.
The international master programme seminars and workshops comprises focussed lectures in Wismar, Berlin and Bangkok/Singapore. The lectures are in English, ensuring that the programme remains open to all those interested from around the world.
