Illuminating Engineering and Light Sources


Illuminating Engineering and Light Sources


Bachelor’s Degree

The Illuminating Engineering and Light Sources Programme

Illuminating Engineering is a science about the light properties, capabilities and principles of its application, as well as new alternative sources of light. Illuminating Engineering is closely connected with Power Engineering, Electronics, Optics, and Architecture. The most popular Illuminating Engineering trends are study and development of lighting devices based on LEDs, and light design.


Graduates are engaged in scientific and technical developments of radiation sources and detectors, data display devices and emission security, radiation tests of optical and physical parameters of space instruments, actual and simulated tests of special purpose optical equipment.

The Illuminating Engineering Department was opened in 2009 at the TKA Scientific and Technical Company  (www.tkaspb.ru). The leading workers are teaching simultaneously at the Illuminating Engineering Department and at the Base Department which is located at the TKA Company’s industrial sites. The 1st year students have their training course in full measure and 3rd year students have practical training at the Base Department with the opportunity to write their graduating qualification works reflecting actual scientific and production process.

It is also necessary to mention about our desire and opportunities on work with post-graduate students. New developments requiring updating scientific methods of techniques and technologies in Instrument Engineering always appear in the order portfolio. So we have scientific projects and possibility for practical implementation of developments for graduates interested in science. Here we are ready to provide financial support to post-graduate students.

The Illuminating Engineering Department has a cooperation agreement with the Technological University in Lappeenranta, Finland. We do actively mutual coordination of educational programs, and our graduates may have the opportunity to continue their study abroad and obtain Master's degree and European recognized diploma.
