    Postgraduate Course in Product and Light

    A light object can be used as a way of expressing the personal identity of the user
    and of the space. It creates a diversity of atmospheres and is a generator of
    products that tell a story and trigger emotions.
    With the Postgraduate Course in Product and Light, you will gain knowledge about
    the creation of a luminaire (colloquially referred to as a light fixture) from the
    concept up to its final execution in order to promote its sale. A programme that is
