The topic of lighting needs to be explored in its complexity with overlaps into a number of technical and non-technical areas. The new European standard Daylighting in buildings (2018) introduces a number of new methods for assessing the quality of the daylighting in buildings. New technologies and tools suitable for assessing daylight in buildings and beyond expand the possibilities for prediction and optimization in lighting practice.


interest in daylighting science

Syllabus of lectures:

- Introduction to the theory of daylighting

- The human visual apparatus

depending on the focus of the particular doctoral thesis

- Exposure to sunlight

- Daylight provision

- Assessment for view out

- Daylight Glare Probability

- Multicriterial analysis of daylighting

Syllabus of tutorials:

The content of the practical assignment will be chosen in the context of the thesis topic

- Measurement of daylight factor

- Determination of light transmittance, reflectance of materials

- Luminance analysis and glare assessment

- Spectral analyses

- Computer based daylighting analyses

- Multicriterial analysis of daylighting and thermal comfort

Study Objective:

In this course, students consider the assessment of lighting in terms of ensuring visual comfort, health aspects of lighting and meeting the requirements for spaces according to their specific functions. A balance is sought between the numerous requirements for indoor environmental quality, energy efficiency, economic and operational parameters.
