Course Description

Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Interior Architecture offered at UCSI University is a full time 3.5 year fully accredited degree programme governed by the Council of Architectural Accreditation & Education of Malaysia (CAAEM). The programme gears its students towards the future of being thinkers rather than just doers; ‘think-and-do-tanks’ that addresses human needs on a variety of scales. This will enable students to engage with current public expectations of interior architecture practice with the adaptive and increasingly complex and ever changing demands of design and current trends from the industry.
