Learning objectives
In Part One of this technical trajectory students became acquainted with the breadth of the field. In Part Two they acquired in-depth knowledge ion lighting physics, light sources, lighting design, control and interaction. In part Three, students learn to apply this knowledge in multidisciplinary teams in the design of innovative light applications, tailored to the needs of real clients.
Content
Technical assignments consist of a thorough exploration, prototype design and prototype evaluation/iteration. Students meet with a mentor on a weekly basis. Mentors will be recruited from all groups participating in ILI, depending on the specific challenge/project. Students start with an orientation on their assignment. In the second week, project mentors & program managers organize a dedicated in-depth workshop for all the groups in their particular challenge. Then each group continues with their own assignment. The assignments should be grounded in a basic understanding of the user, contextual, and technical requirements of innovative light applications, and original technical research and design work. Project reports are written adhering to the templates provided to students. Students present their plans at an intermediate plenary meetings. Examples of projects: 'Lighting design for independently living elderly', 'Daylight harvesting system for public parking lots', 'Being controlled or controlling our environment', 'Capturing and Liberating Daylight'.

Short promotional description of the course
Project groepen werken aan een uitdagend ontwerpproject geformuleerd door het Intelligent Lighting Institute in samenwerking met een klant. Opdrachten bestaan uit een exploratie, prototype design, en prototype test. Ook het gebruiksersperspectief komt expliciet aan de orde. Het technische karakter van projecten kan variƫren en een nadruk hebben op bijvoorbeeld architectonisch lichtontwerp, innovatieve controls & interactie, dynamische licht applicaties, of energie efficiƫntie/smart materials.
Short promotional description of the course
Project teams work on a design challenge formulated by the Intelligent Lighting Institute (ILI) in collaboration with an external client. Assignments consist of an exploration, prototype design, and prototype testing. There is always a clear and explicit consideration of the user perspective. The technical character of projects may vary and have an emphasis in architectural lighting design, innovative controls & interaction, dynamic lighting applications, or energy efficiency/smart materials.
