Interior design is a business and a creative field which contributes to the physical, visual and intellectual comforts and joys of people as they are affected by the interior design of homes and businesses. As an interior designer, you plan the arrangement of interior space and coordinate the selection and sales of furniture, draperies and other fabrics, floor coverings and interior accessories. You are also responsible for calculations, bidding proposals and pricing. You must fully understand the enormous influence that surroundings have on people's lives.
Graduates of the Interior Design Program are employed by interior design firms, furniture stores, flooring stores, paint and decorating centers, building centers, and kitchen and bath design firms.
The Interior Design program is designed to provide training for the many diverse and creatively challenging areas of the design industry.
Courses are lecture and hands-on learning. Many classes include labs that allow students to create design projects as they would for a client. Internships prepare the student with realistic experiences, necessary to transition into design jobs upon graduation.
Classes are based at the Appleton Campus; but, general education and support courses may be taken at regional centers or transferred from other technical colleges.
