In recognition of the need for rigorous professional training and education in lighting design, New York School of Interior Design launches the Master of Professional Studies (MPS) in Interior Lighting Design.
Beginning in spring 2011, this one-year graduate program will prepare industry professionals for leadership roles in lighting design for interior spaces.
NYSID has engaged Charles Cameron, MIES, Assoc. IALD, an expert in interior design and theatrical lighting to helm this significant new discipline as the Lighting Area Coordinator.
Cameron, an architectural lighting designer and president of his own firm, Studio C Squared, Inc. enjoys over a decade of design and teaching experience.
He specializes in inventive and sustainable lighting for a wide variety of environments including private residences, national hotel chains, commercial offices and theaters.
"We are extremely fortunate to have someone with Chuck's professional and teaching experience to lead the school's new graduate program in lighting design," commented Christopher Cyphers, President of NYSID.
"The MPS in Interior Lighting Design is a logical extension of NYSID's programmatic expansion and institutional growth, which reflects the changing landscape of the design profession."
The MPS in Interior Lighting Design will focus on natural and artificial illumination for the interior environment.
It will offer a range of skills and techniques, both conceptual and practical; history and theory of lighting design; sustainability principles; integrated system design; as well as financial analysis, code compliance and project maintenance.
