Bachelor of Interior Design

Bachelor of Interior Design

Programme Overview:

We as an Institute recognize the urgent need for a trained professional in the discipline of interior design, space planning and furniture design. In the current, rapidly growing economic scenario of India, where it is envisaged that with multinational companies setting base and emerging consciousness amongst people for brand image, the role of an interior Designer is consistently being challenged.

Pedagogy:

Interior Design brings meaning to the built environment. It addresses the enactment of life quality of life in space. It recognizes the orders - both tangible and intangible, through which human beings occupy space and particularize it to the acts of living and inhabitation. Royal Global University, through the Faculty of Design, offers a full time four-year professional program in Interior Design, leading to the award of Bachelor of Interior Design. To facilitate the holistic development of the designer, the education at the Faculty of Design employs a threefold approach. First is the enrichment of the mind by inputs from the liberal arts, second is the development of skills by experimenting in the workshop and the third is the synthesis of this knowledge into design solutions relevant to the physical as well as the temporal context. The program is structured to allow students to understand human habitation by exposure to different contexts through various means like in-class lifelike experiences, field trips, living with craftsmen and case studies encountered at various phases in the academic life. These engagements enable the students to be both reflective and responsive designers. The curriculum is designed to facilitate the holistic development of the students with an emphasis on the development of skills, knowledge as well as the critical and rational thinking. Thus the learning involves simultaneous inputs from theory and workshop subjects that eventually find a synthesis in design exercises undertaken as design studios.

Courses like freehand drawing, technical drawing, color workshop, graphic design as well as workshops in creative writing hone skills required for effective communication. In addition to the formal classroom and studio based courses and workshops, students are exposed to various scenarios of learning such as the Related Study Programs and Practical Training. The learning process culminates in a final project students undertake upon the completion of seven semesters of formal course requirements. We also encourage students to gain through hands on approach to learning through participation in various workshops related to glass, metal, weaving, print making and carpentry etc. visiting various building sites where construction activity is ongoing, provides our students with necessary exposure to practical realities of the profession.
