Interior Designers Are Skillful And Knowledgeable
Professional interior designers have a solid understanding of construction and building systems because they make decisions that impact structural components as well as mechanical and electrical systems. They also have knowledge of environmental psychology, building codes and regulations, technical properties of materials, historic precedents and the business of design. Upon graduation, our students are able to skillfully apply the design process and illustrate their design concepts with computer- and manually-generated two- and three-dimensional architectural drawings and models.
Interior Designers Are Collaborators
To realize the designs they envision for clients, professional interior designers often collaborate with architects, engineers, other designers (lighting, graphic, landscape), contractors, manufacturers of interior products (furniture, lighting, fabrics), artists and craftsmen (cabinet makers, upholsterers). For that reason, our interior design students are encouraged to develop good collaboration and communication skills that will enable them to work effectively in the multi-disciplinary environment of a professional interior design office.
Interior Designers Are Leaders
Professional interior designers lead design teams from the early stages of a design project through to its installation as a finished interior space, and many students, after gaining work experience, will open their own design firms. Our interior design majors are given opportunities to develop leadership abilities, as well as entrepreneurial, communication and organizational skills before they graduate; and our support systems continue for them as alumni.
