About Me

Ferenc Ilkei - lighting design engineer

I am a Lighting Design Engineer graduated as an Electrical Engineer ( BEng ) in 2001 majoring on Lighting Technology

After I finished my studies I worked for wholesaler companies as a project manager. Few years later I was responsible for real lighting projects from the planning to real construction. I spent five years in this position and gained a lot of experience in lighting design, in spite of that most of the cases the job was a simple lighting calculation.

Between 2008 and 2015 I worked as an electrical and lighting design engineer for a different company. During these years I experienced lighting desing in depth, from CAD works to positioning a luminaire on top of a 18m high pole.

In the end of 2011 I started Dialux Workshop website and in the following year I was memeber of open beta test team of Dialux Evo, the new generation lighting design software.

After 14 years practice in full time employment, and numerous successfully completed projects, me and my friend decided to create our own independent lighting design engineering company, 4-LD lighting design.
