Interior Architecture explores the link between interior and architecture where interior spaces are inhabited and experienced as works of art that are rich in spatial investigations and interventions. The programme embarks on a revitalisation and enrichment journey through the development of design, conceptual creativity, theory and philosophy of spaces to create exciting and practical environments in which people live, work and play.
The UCSI University B.A (Hons) Interior Architecture course is a 3.5 year full time degree programme governed by the Council of Architecture Accreditation and Education of Malaysia (CAAEM) which emphasises on critical thinking, conceptual creativity, design development, design theory and culture, construction technology and environmental science.
The course is designed to develop individuals with knowledge, ability and incisiveness to conceptualise and produce designed experiential spaces with considerations of function, culture, environment, technology and materiality. The Interior Architecture programme offered is supported by specialist modules in ergonomics & design, technology & services, communication methods and media, computer aided design, professional practice, project research and planning which aims to enable students to successfully integrate the theoretical aspects and practical implementation of Interior Architecture.
The UCSI University Bachelor of Arts Honours in Interior Architecture gears its students towards the future of being thinkers rather than just doers, think-and-do-tanks that addresses human needs on a variety of scales. This programme will enable students to engage with current public expectations of interior architecture practice with the adaptive and increasingly complex demands of design, current trends and adjusting with the ever changing demands from the industry.
Students are required to undergo Professional Internship programme under Co-operative Placement Scheme to learn and familiarize them with the working environment of the building and construction industry.
Graduates of the Interior Architecture degree programme will be able to gain professional working experience in Interior Design and Architectural Firms, Developer Firms, Film and Television Organisations, and Construction Firms.
