Description of the programme:The aim of the programme is the training of interior design artists who, in liaison with architects and other design professionals, are capable of solving issues regarding aesthetic, functional, and psychological aspects of a given space or spaces, and, in the course of forming architectural space, are capable of preserving the conceptual unity of particular objects and furnishings within. Those graduating the programme will possess essential technical knowledge and artistic talent, have an understanding and thorough knowledge of creativity and the design thought-process and their importance during the planning procedure. Graduates will acquire an advanced sense of aesthetic and critical talents, developed aesthetic taste, have an exhaustive knowledge of interior design terminology, traditional and innovative materials as well as the technology and tools utilised in their production. Students will be taught primary manufacturing and production processes and their conditions, and, taking into consideration the physical, biological, and cultural aspects involved, are capable of conscious treatment of space and sense of space. They become conscious of the context of complex creative processes. Not only do they have the requisite knowledge for coordination of different disciplines, but have experience with the properties and techniques of processing specific materials. Using their acquired capacity for shaping space in a systematic manner integral to the scheme, they are able to react to new challenges in situations requiring complex and collective solutions. Qualified interior design artists are expected to be able to perceive complex professional issues, develop an individual design and creative programme, and conduct their autonomous work accordingly, as well as to employ the correct tools, methods, procedures and technologies proficiently and in novel ways in the creation of their own concepts and designs.
Students gain both practical and professional experience through the course of their studies and are prepared to further their education in the doctoral programme if they wish.
