The course focuses on meeting the needs of current industry trends with an emphasis on programming, design layouts, and control of automated lighting systems. Multiple lighting systems ranging from stationary lighting to moving fixtures are covered in lectures and labs. Students will learn to operate programmable fixtures and design lighting cues while working at consoles and computer programming workstations. The cues they design may be loaded and used during future live labs.
