The Bachelor of Design, Interior Design, prepares students to thoughtfully examine the increasingly complex issues associated with designing, building and transforming interiors, structures & objects.
In the studio, students use digital and manual means to research and recommend design alterations and renovations that give existing buildings new life. Whether working in the field, the CAD Lab, the Model Shop or on their own laptops in studio, students are challenged to think critically and develop self-reliant design solutions and processes.
With a large focus on sustainable and responsible design, students are encouraged to experiment with a wide range of materials and approaches. Complemented by the study of perspective drawing, history, theory, ecology, cultural geography, plants and technology, students investigate some of the most important questions facing designers today.
