Career Prospects

The Bachelors in Interior & Furniture Design programme teaches students to create imaginative spaces and meaningful interior products that meet the needs and enrich the experiences of modern life. Our students explore projects of varied scales such as residential, commercial, hospitality, interior furniture and products, exhibition & retail environments. The course of study offers a special focus on encompassing the skill, theory, history and context of furniture design. Students are guided towards creating thoughtful, ergonomic and sustainable elements that fit into multiple spatial contexts. Special emphasis is placed on the ability to develop self-made prototypes in order to test human and functional factors v/s aesthetics and use of materials. Students engage with live and theoretical design briefs exploring multidisciplinary ideas that allow them to explore both individual ambitions and collective practices.
