Diploma in Interior Design

General

Program Description

Inspiring new developments in technology and materials may sometimes overwhelm new interior designers, which is why we have created a program that will equip students with the solid foundation of theories and practicalities of interior design. They are also taught to develop handy skills through hands-on interior design activities in class and participation in live projects and competitions in the industry.

In this program, the learning emphasis is on developing creative design solutions in shaping and planning interior architectural spaces for human activities. Students can choose two elective subjects from other art and design disciplines as part of our cross-disciplinary learning concept.

During this program, students will start from drawing skills before graduating into designing smaller, compact spaces and then move on to commercial or institutional models. The final assignment will be a more complex major design project.
