PRINCIPALS - A Short Resume:
P.C. (Manick) SORCAR, MSEE, PE, Senior Engineer, (CEO/President)

Manick Sorcar (formal name Prafulla C. Sorcar, now retired) was a leading electrical engineering consultant, specializing in lighting since the early 1970s and was a registered professional engineer in many U.S. States. Shortly after graduating with his master’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Washington (Seattle, USA), where he attended on a full scholarship, Sorcar started his life in professional field as a junior electrical engineer with 'Howard.Butterweck & Co', a reputable consulting engineering firm of Denver, Colorado. Sorcar quickly worked his way up to the position of vice-president when the company incorporated in 1974 having him as one of the principals and changing its name to "Butterweck-Sorcar Engineering, Inc." Twenty six years later the firm became "Sorcar Engineering, Inc.", where he served as its Chief Executive Officer and President. Sorcar had been the project engineer for a variety of small to large multimillion dollar projects which included Denver International Airport, Colorado Convention Center, Laboratories for Colorado Department of Health and Environment, Denver Justice and Detention Center, a palace for prince H.H. Faisal Bin Sultan in Saudi Arabia, and several sport centers in Japan. After 38 years of highly successful engineering business Sorcar honorably retired from engineering in 2012 to devote full time to his other love - art in many forms.
Sorcar is the author of three texts: "Rapid Lighting Design & Cost Estimating" (McGraw-Hill, 1979) was a ‘Book of the Month’ awarded by the Architects' Book Club, "Energy Saving Lighting Systems" (Van Nostrand Reinhold , 1982) a practical application oriented reference book, and "Architectural Lighting For Commercial Interiors" (John Wiley & Sons, 1987) - a widely popular book dealing with the sciences, arts, psychology, physiology, aesthetics, and vision aspects of lighting design. This book was a recommended book by the Department of Energy, U.S. Government, for their Federal Energy Management Program 'FEMP' and Energy Efficiency for Commercial Buildings 'EREC Program', whose mission was to 'reduce the cost of government by advancing energy efficiency'. His last two books were used as a text for Architectural Engineering and Illuminating Engineering at several universities for undergraduate and graduate level courses including at the University of Colorado, Boulder, PennState University, Pennsylvania, USA, and Jadavpur University in India. All his books are listed in "The Lighting Source Catalog" of Illuminating Engineering Society of North America, available in libraries, book stores and on several websites including Amazon.com and Barnes&Noble.com
