Why this programme?
In-depth knowledge of natural and artificial light and the process involved in studying the lighting environment based on its properties means that architectural projects can be undertaken successfully.

At the end of the postgraduate degree in Light and Architecture, the student will have acquired knowledge of the properties of light, visual perception, and comfort, as well as lighting concepts and the tools necessary for design based on light engineering and energy efficiency criteria.
Aims
  • Train technical specialists in lighting control systems in architecture, with knowledge of natural and artificial lighting techniques.
  • Provide skills for working on the design and assessment of buildings and systems, in discussions on these subjects and in governmental oversight positions.
Who is it for?
  • Architects, technical architects and engineers interested in obtaining a high degree of specialisation in the application of renewable energies in architecture.
  • Other university professionals that need to broaden their knowledge in this field.
