Program Overview

A design isn’t finished until someone is using it. Interior Design is a three-year program that prepares you to be a valuable member of the design team for interior additions and renovations, leasehold improvements and new construction. There is an opportunity to be part of the competitive co-op program in the third year. Students prepare for a career as an interior design technologist, someone who contributes to the technical design of building interiors by developing 2D and 3D presentation and construction drawings incorporating a knowledge of building code, sustainability, accessibility, lighting, textiles, furniture, colour and ergonomics

The three-year Interior Design Technology advanced diploma program prepares you to be an Interior Design Technologist. You will be a valuable member of the design team for building retrofits, renovations and new construction, contributing to the technical design of building interiors by design development of plans, elevations, renderings and 3D models.

Learning in state-of-the-art interior design studios with the most up-to-date equipment and software, you will develop a thorough knowledge of interior design and technical design skills.
