Interior Design
Certification: Advanced Diploma
Duration: 2 years
Intakes: January, April, July, October

The programme focus on the whole spectrum of design activities aptly applied in professional practices and draws its strength from the way functional blocks of interior space planning are integrated to facilitate the consideration of different approaches to achieve optimum solutions. Development of the student professional acumen to participate in the wide-ranging fields of interior projects is the ultimate objective of the programme.
The key factor of the programme is the inclination toward applied practice. The students are expected to be able to appreciate the whole process of space planning and design and their relevant professional fields and be able to constructively contribute towards organizational success and personal growth. As part of the programme, students are required to source out interior design organizations and conduct an internship project with them. They are required to constantly maintain a professional attitude with their ‘bosses’ and assist them to achieve stated organizational goals.
The overall emphasis of the Programme is to provide the students with “hands-on” knowledge. The classroom environment is traded for real world experience. This multi-faceted programme includes project preparation, making industry contacts, presenting relevant solutions, and acquiring professional skills and experience. Following graduation, students can make use of the business contacts they have developed and launch themselves on to a successful career.
