Course Description

Interior designers are able to use their skills to design space and effects range from making a client’s home comfortable to transporting people into another space and era with periodic décor. Professional interior designers are able to draw floor plans, render their ideas in 3D, and make on-the-spot sketches to present their ideas.

Students pursuing their Bachelor of Interior Design will be familiarised with the working life of field professionals through simulated projects and assignments. Lessons will build basics in drawing and design theories. So students will be able to create digital artwork of blueprints, floor plans, and other necessary computer generated imagery.

Graduates will be able to visualise the potential of décor in various spaces, and also know how best to enhance aesthetic and functional elements in the room by playing with lighting, furniture, and other materials.
