The use of new lighting technologies is one of the main actions to achieve energy savings”

The Postgraduate Certificate in Lighting Installations addresses the complete range of issues involved in this field, both in the residential and tertiary sectors. Its study has a clear advantage over other programs that focus on specific blocks, which prevents the student from knowing the interrelationship with other areas included in the multidisciplinary field of energy efficiency and sustainability in the construction of buildings.

The improvement of the technologies used in the light sources, the planning of the lighting system, the integration of natural light and the control to adjust the quantity and other lighting parameters. Also, and as an essential element to achieve energy savings, the design and calculation of this type of installations will be discussed as one of the most decisive aspects.

Master all the fundamental terms of lighting technology, its application with light sources, mainly LED, and the practical application of the different and varied regulations, will be the basis on which the improvement of efficiency and energy savings in the lighting systems of buildings is developed.

The Postgraduate Certificate presents all the tools to propose energy-saving improvements in existing buildings or in new installations, from the knowledge of the equipment, lighting and visual requirements, as reflected in the lighting project. The study of the contents will enable the student to apply the different technologies used, how to improve all the aspects that are part of the efficiency of the system, from an approach that ensures the visual and lighting quality, and will be able to address the design, calculation and analysis of the lighting project.

Additionally, as it is a 100% online program, the student is not constrained by fixed timetables or the need to move to another physical location, but can access the contents at any time of the day, balancing their professional or personal life with their academic life.
