Partner University of Nebraska

University of Nebraska

We are happy to announce that the University of Nebraska has accepted to be a Partner University of PLDC 2019.

The Durham School of Architectural Engineering and Construction is housed in the University of Nebraska College of Engineering. Students who specialize in Lighting Design take a five-year course of study to earn both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree.

Our students graduate with an ABET-accredited Master of Architectural Engineering (MAE) with an excellent foundation that provides a head-start in the field. The carefully crafted curriculum begins with engineering basics, and takes students through the lighting specialization in courses such as Building Energy – Primary and Secondary Systems; Lighting – Theory, Design, & Application; Sensation and Perception; and culminates in a one-year Team Design project together with all disciplines and under continuous mentoring and evaluation from industry professionals.

These students and well-prepared graduates are consistently honored throughout their academic and professional careers with scholarships and award recognitions from IES, IALD, the Nuckolls Fund, the Howard Brandston grant, and many others. In the last three years, the Durham School has won the grand prize once, and has been awarded recognition twice from the NCEES Award for Connecting Professional Practice and Education.
