The three-year Interior Design Technology advanced diploma program prepares you to be an Interior Design Technologist. You will be a valuable member of the design team for building retrofits, renovations and new construction, contributing to the technical design of building interiors by design development of plans, elevations and models. This would include details as wall assemblies, lighting, textiles, fixtures, furniture and ergonomic considerations.
Through the application of interior design theory, with principles and practices in architecture, you will learn how to effectively communicate the applied and technical principles of interior design. As a graduate, the areas of specialization are, but not limited to:
- bathroom and kitchen design/build
- event seating
- fitments, or colour and texture finishes
- computer drawing and design
- 3D modelling
- sustainable interior design practices
- an understanding of building science and technology
Learning in state-of-the-art interior design studios with the most up-to-date equipment and software, you will develop a thorough knowledge of interior design and technical design skills.
*If you enrol in the program in January, you are required to complete semester 2 in the summer (May to August) of the same year in order to continue into semester 3 in the fall.

Program Standards and Learning Outcomes
Program standards apply to all similar programs of instruction offered by colleges across the province. Each program standard for a postsecondary program of instruction includes the following elements:
- Vocational standard (the vocationally specific learning outcomes which apply to the program in question),
- Essential employability skills (the essential employability skills learning outcomes which apply to all programs of instruction), and
- General education requirement (the requirement for general education in postsecondary programs of instruction).
The vocational and essential employability skills components of program standards are expressed in terms of learning outcomes. Learning outcomes represent culminating demonstrations of learning and achievement. In addition, learning outcomes are interrelated and cannot be viewed in isolation of one another. As such, they should be viewed as a comprehensive whole. They describe performances that demonstrate that significant integrated learning by graduates of the program has been achieved and verified.
