The purpose of the minor in Illumination Engineering is to help meet the need for advanced lighting expertise in the state of California, both for professionals in the field and engineers who want to provide advanced expertise so sorely needed. Lighting is a significant part of the energy being used in the state. Training engineers with expertise in lighting will provide a healthy basis for the myriad of lighting applications where energy efficient designs and technologies are important. The minor is designed to be appropriate for students in the physical sciences and engineering and engineering technology. The required course in area V is an approved elective in all engineering disciplines.
Completion of one course from each of Areas I through IV and two courses from Area V is required with a minimum unit requirement of 24 units.
