Residential Directed Studies Project INTD 2500

Interior Design Course

Course details

This course assesses the student’s ability to process the information and knowledge gained from previous courses and apply it to one comprehensive residential project. This course is an examination of the student’s ability to solve a given design problem and as such it is designed to be self-directed. Students will receive guidance; however, they are expected to arrive at their own design solutions. Students will prepare and present a comprehensive design solution for a multi-level residential interior. Projects must display viability and originality of concept, layouts, and design through innovative presentation techniques. Students will demonstrate their 2D AutoCAD skills and SketchUp skills for 3D components in their final submission.
