Department's Website

The Program is shifted towards an Architectural orientation and it is also enriched with a broad Fine Art context. This allows a good balance of input between Architecture, Interior Design and Art. The BA Interior Design program is designed to prepare future professionals in the Interior Design field who will be functioning in the ever-changing world of the new century. Students acquire sufficient knowledge, techniques and understanding of design, which enables them to use it as a foundation both for employment and academic understanding. This program has been designed as the distinctive design of objects and space appropriate to their physical and social contexts. The program occupies a territory which will overlap other related fields: the precised ergonomic and hand-contact focus of furniture and product design; the transient and heightened atmospheric world of theatre design; the strategic thinking and client centred perspectives of trend forecasters, graphic designers and management consultancy; the conceptual strengths of contemporary performance and sculpture and the timeless universal qualities of architecture. The program also introduces and orientates students towards new technologies which not only reflect changes in innovative teaching and learning practices but also the international industrial market place.

The program aims:

  1. to educate and produce graduates who will become professional practitioners with informed basic technical proficiency and firmly established critical perspectives.
  2. to integrate theory and practice at every level with a view to satisfying the steadily expanding demands for the improvement of the interior of the built environment.
  3. to provide right dimensions of cultural issues which arise from the design technologies in the context of social functions, the purposes they may serve and the behaviour of the personnel using them.

The language of instruction is English.
