The journey started with an exciting desire to let the world know what we know! Yes, we aim to create and spread awareness about the beautiful field of Architectural Lighting Design that some of us ventured into in our careers. We felt that there is a huge void existing among people due to the lack of knowledge about this field. We thus aim to educate both the Student & Professional Community about the various aspects of Lighting Design thereby encouraging them to have a better career!

One main factor that supported us when we started our journey was implementing the DIALux Certification Programme, the first step to mastering Lighting Design at the Mar Baselios College of Engineering & Technology, Trivandrum. We are proud to have final year students pursuing the degree of Bachelor of Technology in Electrical & Electronics Engineering interested in our course. We are also happy to let you know that we are also able to cater to the needs of Faculty through our course structure.

The course started with introducing the basic concepts of Lighting Design and also making the Participants aware of the various Job Opportunities in the field. With the help of our prior knowledge working in this industry, we were able to provide them with a clear-cut idea about various Job roles and the requirements for the same. The initial classes also helped us to go a little bit deeper into topics like Types of Lighting, Applications of Lighting, etc. From there, we moved onto focusing on the Software DIALux & making them capable to work with it. The participants developed a flair to work with it smoothly in due course. Now, when we look back after successfully completing 30 hours of course (out of the scheduled 50 hours), we find it exciting to have been on this journey and to have been successful in imparting the knowledge that we had. The participants are now familiar with the various modes & tools in DIALux, Basics of Indoor Lighting, Creating & Lighting an Interior Room and Developing various components of a Building like Staircase, Columns, Baluster, etc. We know that we now have a long way to go and we aim to make the Participants confident to Create, Design & Light a Complete Interior & Exterior Project by the end of the course.

We would like to thank Mar Baselios College of Engineering & Technology for believing in us and providing us a platform to accomplish our goals. We would also like to thank the Participants & Faculty for their continued support. Stay tuned to us for more updates!
