Wish to focus on LED lighting technology,

Mainly high powered LEDs to illuminate areas such as indoor and outdoor areas.

Which masters area should I take into consideration? Should I consider getting a P.E.?

Main things to consider when designing actual light fixtures;

Optics
Heat dissipation
Driver Design
Semiconductor design

I think a BSEE would be sufficient. You can get your MSEE, but it wouldn't be necessary for this application. I don't think the P.E. certification will make a difference, but I suppose it would help if you wanted to work on the architectural end of the systems, rather on the driving electronics end.
