Architectural Engineering: Interior Design

A.A.S. Degree (T)

Interior design is a highly-skilled profession which encompasses the total design picture. There is a big difference between an interior decorator and a professional interior designer. Interior designers must consider the structure and utilities of a building, client needs and cost effectiveness, as well as aesthetics. It is the designer's job to develop creative solutions to improve the human environment and maximize the function of space. The interior designer prepares technical drawings and designs development drawings to present a successful solution to the client. In addition to residential work, the field of interior design includes such projects as schools, hotels, hospitals, restaurants, theaters, shopping centers, and many more commercial areas. Although the program places a high emphasis on design, students are exposed to all aspects of industry. The program offers students the opportunity to prepare for careers in interior design as designers, draftsmen, color consultants, renderers, specifiers to work in interior design firms, architectural firms, retail stores, and hotel chains, to name a few.
