The California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC)
The California Lighting Technology Center’s (CLTC) mission is to stimulate, facilitate and accelerate the development and commercialization of energy efficient lighting and daylighting technologies.
Philips Lumileds and Future Lighting Solutions will sponsor next quarter’s Designing with Light course at UC Davis taught by Professor Michael Siminovitch of the Design Program. The objective of the course at CLTC is to introduce students to LEDs, next-generation lighting, and fixture design. The annual competition allows students to design, develop, and create prototypes of fully working LED-based luminaires to explore optics, materials, and aesthetically pleasing lighting systems. Siminovitch, design professionals, and representatives of the competition’s sponsors then evaluate the designs and award the top three students.
