Master Lighting Design - Architectural Lighting and Design Management

The distance learning programme Master Lighting Design – Architectural Lighting and Design Management is offered by the Hochschule Wismar, University of Applied Sciences: Technology, Business and Design.

The course started in September 2012 for the first time, based on more than 10 years of experience in teaching Lighting Design as a Master programme in Wismar. After successful graduation the students will achieve the international accredited degree Master of Arts (M.A.).

The aim of the long distance course is to comprehensively train lighting designers. The highly regarded qualifications and skills gained through this degree, offer graduates the opportunity to work in many relating 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.
