Classes led by Professor Konstantinos Papamichael
California Lighting Technology Center Co-Director Konstantinos Papamichael teaches two complimentary undergraduate daylighting courses, Daylighting and Interior Design (DES137A), and Daylighting Design Studio (DES137B). Both courses combine lectures and studio work. DES137A focuses on the effects of daylighting on interior designs, while DES137B concentrates on the effects of interior designs on daylight performance.
Classes will be led by Professor Michael Siminovitch
DES 136A: Lighting Technology and Design
Students interested in interior design will build a lighting vocabulary and a fundamental understanding of lighting technologies. Students will take a hands-on approach in the course which includes lectures, demonstrations, and site visits.
Topics will include:
The California Advanced Lighting Controls Training Program (CALCTP) provides training and certification to electricians, contractors, acceptance test technicians, building operators and managers. The program is increasing the use of energy-saving lighting controls in commercial buildings and ensuring they are properly installed and commissioned for maximum effectiveness.
