The Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Interior Design Engineering Programme within the College of Engineering at Gulf University intends to attract students from various backgrounds. Prospective students will be interested in art, design and engineering with an aim to develop their knowledge and skills. Students will develop their creative, critical and analytical skills and learn about being life-long learners to enter the profession of interior design and related industries.
The Programme adopts a multidisciplinary approach in structuring the study curriculum, organizing students’ activities, recruiting academic staff, and engaging with partners from both industry and society. We believe this approach empowers students with the fundamental theoretical knowledge, technological skills, design experience, and professional attributes. The students will be engaged in design projects throughout their study progression reinforced by a wide range of supportive courses to develop their written, verbal, and visual communications skills. In addition, they will establish a robust understanding of the functional, aesthetic and social roles of interior design. They will broaden and deepen their awareness of construction and rehabilitation technologies, buildings services, and professional regulations implemented in the design and practice of interior spaces and furniture.
The enrolled students work as individuals and in groups in design studios, computer labs, workshops and other university facilities to accomplish their design projects and assignments. Our academic staff members are research active and are keen on encouraging students in engaging in research problems related to the subject matter being taught. They will ensure that students will have access to library resources and e-learning materials to understand different research methodologies and develop their habits of self and independent learning.
As a result, the graduates of the Programme will be confident and responsible designers, who can become significant contributors in the society both as individuals and as team members involved in designing a wide range of interior environments. Their work will reflect the national and global design approaches, support human activities, enhance people’s health and life style, and function as sustainable and stimulating spaces. The qualification and attributes of the graduates will either enable them to develop a specialized professional career or pursue their studies as postgrad students at national and international institutions.
We have a team of international academic staff members implementing their experience in collaboration and partnerships with both national and international design schools to explore with the students’ new ways of thinking, practicing diversity, exploring different cultures, and opening new doors for establishing relations.
