Yucheng Lu is currently in his 5th year of study in the Architectural Engineering program at Pennsylvania State University. In May 2014, he will graduate with an integrated Bachelor/Master of Architectural Engineering degree along with a minor in Architecture. Dedicated in lighting design, Yucheng has been an active member of professional lighting organizations such as IES (Illumination Engineering Society) and IALD (International Association of Lighting Designers).


During the past two summers, Yucheng interned at WE-EF Lighting USA and Office for Visual Interaction. His unique experience allows him to observe the lighting industry from both manufacture and designer side, developing his unique understanding about the industry. Yucheng’s experience also provided him inspirations for his school work. In Fall 2012, Yucheng is selected into Penn State’s award winning BIM studio program – an interdisciplinary collaboration studio allows student from 6 different disciplines work together to design a project refined in every aspect. As the team lighting designer, he worked closely with his teammate and together they were recognized as the 2012 winning team. In 2013, Yucheng also participated in Howard Brandston Student Lighting Design competition with his teammates and won the prize of honorable mention.


Being an international student, Yucheng lived in 4 countries and can speak Chinese, Japanese and English fluently. From his experience he sees that globalization is the future tendency of the lighting industry and in a globalized market, designers will have more freedom to choose the dream project that matches their own design philosophy.
