Project CANDLE is a partnership to Create an Alliance to Nurture Design in Lighting Education. It is a collaboration between The Pennsylvania State University and lighting industry partners that began with support from the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) Education Trust.
Project CANDLE was initiated to meet the growing demand for lighting professionals. Those involved share a common passion for light and lighting, and a desire to share our enthusiasm with college and high school students.
Project CANDLE aspires to:
Increase the number of people that choose to make lighting their profession.
Ensure that the collegiate experience prepares graduates with the right set of attitudes, skills, and abilities for careers in the lighting professions.
