Build Your Future in Interior Design Technology

The Interior Design Department offers programs in Commercial Design, Interior Design, Interior Merchandising and Residential Design. Interior Designers improve the quality of life for the occupants of an interior space by making it functional and aesthetically pleasing. The designer must have knowledge of not only materials and products appropriate to a particular project, but also knowledge of building codes that protect the safety and welfare of the public. Our program provides the student with the skills necessary to be successful in this ever-evolving field and challenges the individual to create dynamic interiors that also respect the environment. Students learn about the many career options in residential and commercial design, and areas of specialization such as kitchen & bath, hospitality, health care, model homes, lighting specialist, and CAD operator, just to name a few. As a student nears program completion, the internship class provides the opportunity to work in an actual design environment and to network in the industry.
