The Interior Architecture Program strikes a balance between creativity and thoughtful design thinking. The program is designed to equip our graduates with problem-solving techniques, study them in detail, and explore design environments where people grow. The interior design studios offer mastery of evidence-based design, development of effective presentation capabilities and acquisition of vital professional skills. Collective collaboration among student groups reflects the team’s practices while providing field visits, allowing students to communicate with faculty members permanently, and working to achieve the concept of the relationship between space and human interaction, with the built environments. The faculty will interact with industry mentors for research and development purposes and document a large-scale project, from the initial concept up to the work drawings and documents. In addition, it will help achieve linkage between the concept of design, community, surrounding environment and design industry.
The requirements and curriculum of the internship program are designed so that graduates can successfully achieve the following program learning outcomes:
– Providing academic preparation for the professional interior designer according to international standards.
¬ Helping students understand the history of the internal environment from a global perspective.
¬ Having a strong basic knowledge of integrated building systems, especially for lighting and information technology.
¬ Gaining high-level experience in visual design media, including graphic design, digital presentation and various design techniques.
¬ Having the knowledge and technical ability to identify materials and raw materials based on beauty and performance, and know how to work with material and material processes, including traditional manufacturing and digital manufacturing.
¬ Preparing students to lead international design in a culturally diverse, economically and rapidly growing profession.
¬ Learning about physical behaviours and the formation of assemblies that affect the performance of internal systems and applications, including durability, and sustainability.
¬ Using a scientific methodology based on visual studies for “internal reading” as it relates to culture and housing.
– Companies and consulting firms in the field of interior architecture.
