About this program

Interior Architecture and Environmental Design

The Interior Architecture and Environmental Design Department aims to train professionals who can conceptualize their designs through critical inquiry within contemporary theoretical frameworks, and prepare graduates who are equipped with the knowledge and technical skills required for realizing their designs at the level of universal standards, who have the confidence of designing and working independently, yet at the same time who have the ability to be a team member that are aware of their professional and ethical responsibilities. Along this path, materialization of the act of designing spaces, environmental analyses and identification of user needs and preferences through particapatory processes as well as their reflections on designs constitute the unique emphasis in the educational vision of the department.

The curriculum, which is developed with a contemporary and interdisciplinary approach, is structured around the interior design studio as its center. Technical courses are given through hands-on applications within small group projects whereby computer aided design techniques and presentation techniques are encouraged. Department targets training designers who have the skills of questioning and perceiving the phenomenon of designing a wide spectrum that ranges  from individual industrial product to architectural and urban scale, who have the sensitivity towards historical contexts and who can convert these sensitivities and awareness into creativity.

The graduates are not only accepted to qualified master’s degree programs of prominent graduate design schools, completing their education; they are also employed in national and international design offices, furniture and construction companies or running their own design offices.

The languages of instruction for this program are English and Turkish.
