Bringing Conceptualized Ideas to Life


The Interior Design programme focuses on a student-centered teaching and learning environment. In a technologically transforming ecosystem where design problems are multiple and challenges are inevitable, our course encourages students to take creative risks. 

They design spaces that incorporate real-world requirements with innovative solutions, to shape holistic spatial experiences. Mentoring by industry experts and live projects are designed to enhance the skills and learnings of students.

This interior design course aims to develop the ability to be creative, conceptualize, and detail functional and aesthetic spaces in which the final design solutions may not be singular, but divergent.
