Lighting En​gineering Department
Founded in 1932


Graduates of the Lighting Engineering Department are experts in development of modern illuminators, lighting fixtures and lighting systems.

Research areas

  • Development of office lighting systems, outdoor lighting, architectural lighting, stage lighting, illuminated advertising and illumination design;
  • Optimization of lighting and operational parameters of existing illuminators as well as design of fundamentally new illuminators;
  • Development of optical systems for lighting equipment;
  • Development of control systems for illuminators, lighting fixtures, lighting and irradiating equipment;
  • Development of optimality criteria for lighting conditions;
  • Mathematical modeling of human optical system within the tasks relating to detection and identification of objects;
  • Development of measurement methods of lighting parameters of illuminators, lighting fixtures and lighting systems.

Recent projects

  • Development of theoretical fundamentals of modeling of spatial and angular brightness distribution in lighting systems;
  • Research in spectral sensitivity of the visual system’s receptors under normal chromatic adaptation;
  • Development of a method for receptors’ sensitivity measurement in a visual system on the basis of a statistical model.
