Interior Design MA

OVERVIEW

This course starts in September 2017.

This Interior Design course will suit recent graduates who already have some academic knowledge of interior design or interior products, but wish to deepen their design skills and understanding of the wide range of the interior design workfield.

WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

In this MA course the student has the possibility to focus on a specific field where their strength lies. The course interior design explores the human scale and relationship in the continuously changing context of the spatial environments.

You will be given the opportunity to learn to develop and design within a broad range of spatial environments, while considering the scale of the environment, manufacturing processes and exclusivity.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

The course is devised in recognition of the rapidly changing world of design practice. More than ever, industrial design practice is highly collaborative, global in scope and cross-culturally conducted.

The course offers periods of study that involves connecting students from across a suite of related PG design courses in the School (from transport to product and interior design) within an interdisciplinary design learning experience to make possible a deep and wide ranging design discourse that related to a range of design settings. The aim is to help you advance your design skills and capabilities with ability to engage critically and creatively to innovative new and exciting products for the future.

We will introduce you to a range of design research techniques that will help you to understand and exploit the creative and strategic potential of data and information analyses. In their journey towards being Master of Design, students will be guided towards an independent, self-directed mode of thinking and design project management. Mastery of such skills commands a premium in the global employment marketplace. 

You should be exposed to cross-cultural and trans-disciplinary challenges and opportunities that will provide you with a strong sense of what it means to perform creatively and collaboratively across cultural, national and disciplinary boundaries. Briefs – where possible may be set by live clients to provide opportunities for working under realistic professional practice conditions.
