Department Overview

Interior Architecture and Design (IAD) program integrates the study of architecture with interior design. At IAD program we believe that well designed environments play a significant role in contributing to the success and profitable occupation and use of interior space.

Study is based on the practical application of interior and architectural design concepts. Through a series of design projects, students will learn to co-ordinate the elements that create a well-designed interior space, and which afford the opportunity to study structure, form, space, materials and textures, furniture, color & lighting.

The demands and requirements for well-designed interior spaces continue to change and develop, in response to public and commercial, new technologies, social and cultural practices. The course aims to reflect these changes through encouraging students to explore and develop innovative, spatial and architectural interior design responses to these demands.

Technology for design, alongside a philosophical, theoretical and historical appreciation of design and architecture, underpins and provides context for practical studio based projects.

The program aims to provide students with the knowledge, understanding and skills to respond to the professional challenges ahead through innovative, responsible and sustainable design practices, and give them a clear understanding of the international Interior Architecture market and industry structure.

The degree is structured around a series of design projects, which develop according to physical and intellectual complexity; Examining, researching and developing creative solutions to changing issues of occupation and use. 

The BA degree in Interior Architecture and Design comprises a four-year full time mode of study including a common foundation year in Art and Design during the first stage of the program together with 30 credit hours to fulfill general University requirements and electives.
