Department of Interior Design

A professional Interior Designer’s responsibilities extend far beyond creating the aesthetics of an interior space.

Interior Design is a challenging and rewarding profession demanding exceptional creativity, collaboration and coordination, in the production of highly functional, aesthetically appealing interior spaces. It is also a profession where there are various tangents that one could pursue, and a solid foundation for many careers within the building and construction industry. A professional Interior Designer performs a variety of tasks and roles, all the while ensuring that the safety, health and wellbeing of the public is intact.

Within the Department of Interior Design, we are educating our students to become highly qualified career-oriented Interior Design graduates, able to integrate art, design, technology and business practices.

The CIDA-accredited undergraduate degree is taught by experienced professionals in a fully equipped design-led environment, We offer a professional career-oriented program with emphasis on spatial design and interior architecture rather than surface embellishment. Students will learn about all aspects of space, scale, proportions, configuration, and light sources, as well as textures, materials, and colors, in relation to their effect on the human spirit.
