INSTITUT D’OPTIQUE Graduate School, ESTACA and Strate School of design provide specific continuing education programmes respectively in optics/ photonics, transportation technologies and design.

They are open to professionals interested in acquiring or sharpening their skills in these fields. All training sessions are carefully designed and are provided by prominent experts

Through the “Embedded lighting System” Advanced Master, INSTITUT D’OPTIQUE Graduate School, ESTACA and STRATE School of design also offer a specific continuing education programme to the lighting industry. The one year programme as a whole, as well as each of its 12 academic sessions are made available either as an Advanced Master or in separate sessions.

Individual modules available for continuing education:

Module MS 1: Fundamentals of optics for lighting
Coordinator: Gaëlle LUCAS-LECLIN – IOGS
Learning outcomes: Description and analysis of optical lighting systems using ray optics, physical optics and basic notions on light sources.

Module MS11: Fundamentals of photometry for lighting
Coordinator: Julien MOREAU – IOGS
Learning outcomes: Photometry of optical lighting system; Photometric measurement equipment.

Module MS12: Systems Engineering: models and functional security
Coordinator: Patrick LESERF – ESTACA
Learning outcomes: System in the automotive context, including modelling and functional reliability according to the ISO 2626-2 standards.

Module MS13: Fundamentals of mechatronic modelling of lighting systems
Coordinator: Bertrand BARBEDETTE ESTACA
Learning outcomes: Mechatronic system: Description with the industrial modelling tools. Ability to make and describe the assumptions of the model, to programme it, to validate it, to give a physical interpretation of its results.

Module MS14: Creative Design of optical systems for the car industry
Coordinator: Mike LEVY – STRATE
Learning outcomes: Ability to relate the imperatives of both design and technology, to understand the point of view of the designer, to understand the origins of the constraints generated by the design and to be able to propose technical recommendations to meet the design specifications.

Module MS21: Light sources: properties & performances, integration, reliability
Coordinator: Gaelle LUCAS-LECLIN – IOGS
Learning outcomes: Light sources selection according to technical specifications under constraints.

Module MS22: Computer aided photometric design of illumination systems
Coordinator: Lionel JACUBOWIEZ – IOGS
Learning outcomes: Broad knowledge of the main optical components and sub systems used in lighting and signalling. Ability to design and optimise the photometry of a lighting systems using a dedicated software.

Module MS31: Integration of the physical system environment and production constraints
Coordinator: Bertrand BARBEDETTE—ESTACA
Learning outcomes: Ability to understand the diverse technical environments, to size the system with the fabrication process constraints.

Module MS32: Mechatronic modelling and simulation of an embedded lighting systems
Coordinator: Rabia SEHAB – ESTACA
Learning outcomes: Ability to model the mechatronic systems, to program them and to validate them with simulations or prototypes.

Module MS33: Embedded information systems
Coordinator: Sébastien SAUDRAIS – ESTACA
Learning outcomes: Ability to program an electronic board, to describe the information path necessary for its control, to correctly send and receive a network message.

Module MS41: characterisation of surfaces and of their aspect, advanced photometric simulation of surfaces
Coordinator: Mathieu HEBERT – IOGS
Learning outcomes: Ability to use advanced tools for realistic simulation of photometry, and visual aspect of a lighting system. Ability to relate the characteristics of surfaces to their expected and observed visual aspect and to use the relevant characterisation tools.

Module MS42: Physically realistic and real time rendering of appearance, visual and cognitive aspects in relation with design
Coordinator: Xavier GRANIER – IOGS
Learning outcomes: Understanding of the relationship between the physical reality and the perceived aspect. Ability to specify the needs in terms of real time rendering by virtual or augmented reality as well as by valid images through the filters of vision and cognition

Continuing Education


Continuing Education at IOGS

Continuing Education in Optics and Photonics, a necessity for companies in these times of rapid evolution, is one of the main missions of the Institut d’Optique Graduate School. Our programmes benefit from the high level demonstrators and laboratories used by our School of Engineering, Masters of Sciences and PhDs.

Our various programmes fit the needs of scientists, engineers, technical staff and sales personnel. Beginners and advanced students, designer and users will find the fundamentals of optics and photonics they are looking for as well as the advanced programmes they need to improve their skills in advanced photonics.
