Education

The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) places great emphasis on lighting education in fulfilling its mission to advance the art, science and practice of illumination. Our goal is to provide agile and accessible educational opportunities through modern learning modalities as well as in person seminars and courses and allowing the vast knowledge of our members be shared with our membership at large.
