The first cycle course in Interior Design is an extensive educational package which enhances the students’ creative talents, develops their skills in visualising design concepts and prepares them for the specialist second cycle course. Important subjects include Design Basics and Methodology, Design Drawing, Freehand Drawing, Composition and Visual Structures, Sculpture, Photography, 3-D Modelling and an extensive offer of theoretical subjects, which enhance the course’s general academic profile. We especially emphasise the importance of digital presentation techniques and computer-aided design. The first cycle course concludes with the completion of a bachelor’s diploma, its public defence and the presentation of a professional portfolio, which document’s the designer’s achievements. First cycle course graduates can find employment in operational positions with design and architecture studios.
The second cycle course offers specialist, professional education focused on solving complex, multi-aspect design problems, which require the ability to work as part of a team and to assume managerial responsibilities. An important supplement to this education are specialist Design Workshops, Visiting Professor courses in English and advanced theory concerning the market and socio-cultural aspects of design. Graduates of the second cycle course in Interior Design are prepared to work in executive positions and/or manage project teams at a decision-making level.
