|Description:||The broader knowledge required by interior designers today reflects the greater emphasis that is being placed on the importance of the interior environment within the workplace, the home, institutions, and in recreational and retail facilities. To plan and design these environments, it is necessary to understand the functional, technical, and aesthetic requirements.
Students who choose this program receive training in space planning, the use of products and materials, the preparation of construction drawings (both manual and computer-aided), specifications and estimates, industry practices, and project procedures. These skills prepare the graduate to ably assist the professional interior designer in the development of design solutions for a variety of interior spaces. Graduates start careers in technical positions with architectural and design firms as assistants to interior designers, or with furniture and product manufacturers/suppliers as sales personnel or in-house design assistants.
