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 to be shared with our membership at large.


The Cleveland section is once again hosting a Fundamentals of Lighting course starting Tuesday, March 13, at Karpinski Engineering. Lighting expert Marian Perez will be running the class with weekly guest stars from local lighting celebrities. This 10-week program covers everything from the history of light sources to lighting calculations and codes. It was a huge success last year and we’re looking to build on that with a Webinar option. Read our flyer for additional information. Reach out to Marian Perez with any questions or sign up using the PayPal link on our event page.

Monthly Live Webinar Series

Starting June 15 2017, the IES will present a monthly live webinar with topics we believe will be beneficial to our membership and the public at large. We are excited with this new program and we hope that you will join us. Look for detailed instructions to register in your weekly IES News eBlast. We are looking forward to your participation. If you have any questions please forward them to Tom Butters, Director of Education.
