Academic Gains of Our Students

In the Department of Interior Architecture and Environmental Design, our students are trained in an education system blended with the latest technology. In the department, Basic Design in the first year and Interior Architecture Studios courses, which continue until the last year, lead the applied courses. These courses are carried out in an individual and collective design culture, in a design atmosphere where the instructors are in a position of thinking, questioning and criticising with their students, not just teaching. The student is not a passive learner, but an active questioner and producer. The aim of this approach is to enable students to realise their creativity, create their own design language and find original solutions to problems. Studio courses, which form the backbone of the department courses, are coordinated with other applied technical courses such as Technical Drawing, Drawing and Presentation Techniques, Construction and Materials, Advanced Construction Techniques, Computer Aided Design and Furniture Design. Ergonomic Design, Environmental Control Systems, Insulation and Fire Safety courses aim to increase the technical knowledge of the students, analytical thinking skills of the students with the Mathematics course, and skills to manage the project and application process with the Construction Management course.

The main objective of the theoretical courses such as Introduction to Interior Architecture and Environmental Design, History of Art and Design, History of Interior Architecture, Human-Space-Environment is to train interior architects with high artistic and intellectual achievements as well as being technically equipped. In addition, students can take elective courses in line with their own interests.
