It is well known that the computer in lighting technology is a vital component for lighting designers. Lighting computer programs are preferred in preparing architectural projects in lighting techniques, especially in lighting calculations. Lighting computer programs, which arise with the aim of helping lighting designers, gain more interest day by day. The most important property of lighting computer programs is the ability to enable the simulation of lighting projects without requiring any real life applications. In addition, with the use of lighting computer programs, incomplete parts of projects are determined to make necessary calculations. In this study, the details about lighting computer programs, especially as used in interior lighting, are mentioned. A comparison of programs will be made by pointing out necessary characteristics in lighting computer programs.&nbsp;&nbsp;Key Words: Lighting design, Lighting computer programs, Calculux, DIALux, Europic, Silicht.
