Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The course is an extension of the subject “Lighting Systems and Their Designing”. In this course, students will deepen their knowledge about the designing of lighting systems. It will be particularly focused on critical areas related to the design and operation of lighting systems in connection with mesopic perception, luminance, emergency lighting, security cameras lighting etc. Students will understand the demands placed on the lighting system from the point of view of safety requirements.

Teaching methods

Project work


The subject deals with the application of modern light sources and luminaires in indoor and outdoor space in its theoretical part. There is an emphasis on new methods for calculations of illuminance, luminance and glares. There are explained principles for intelligent controlling of lighting systems.
