The Department of Interior Architecture and Environmental Design was established on December 4, 1999, under the Faculty of Fine Arts at Selçuk University. Its purpose is to elevate the cultural and artistic values of Konya and the country to a contemporary level and to meet the need for trained personnel in this field. The department has been accepting students since the 2003-2004 academic year.
On January 28, 2021, the department was transferred to the Department of Interior Architecture, Faculty of Architecture and Design, Selcuk University, with a letter dated E.6444 from the Presidency of the Council of Higher Education. In addition to its experienced and dynamic academic staff, the department offers education and training with wide application and studio opportunities, as well as computer-aided design applications. Until 2013, the department accepted students with a special talent exam, but has been accepting students with the central exam system since the 2013-2014 academic year. Graduates of the department receive the title of "Interior Architect" after completing a 4-year education program.
The Department of Interior Architecture at Selcuk University's Faculty of Architecture and Design adopts an education-teaching approach that meets the needs of the age. The goal is to cultivate students who possess responsibility, research skills, scientific and technological knowledge, as well as artistic and intellectual dimensions, and who can transform these qualities into professional practice.
The learning process focuses on developing solution-oriented projects based on the changing market conditions and up-to-date material information. To achieve this, course content, fieldwork, and workshop studies are designed in collaboration with industry partners. Upon graduation, students are expected to demonstrate professional ethics, serve in the field of profession, and possess sufficient equipment and knowledge.
As the Selçuk University Faculty of Architecture and Design's Department of Interior Architecture, our priority is to cultivate individuals who embody the professional ethics of Interior Architecture, have strong moral values, and are conscious of their responsibilities. Under the guidance of our experienced academic staff, our goal is to provide a course content and knowledge base that meet national and international standards throughout undergraduate education.
We strive to educate individuals who can adapt to the needs of the age, incorporate developing technology, work effectively in both individual and team settings, possess a universal understanding of art and investigative aspects, are responsible, have strong professional practices, and are skilled at problem-solving. Our aim is to transfer professional knowledge while emphasizing the importance of cooperation with disciplines closely related to Interior Architecture education, and advocating for the importance and necessity of communication between different disciplines.
Interior Architecture Department, during the 4-year education program, designs creative and livable interior spaces based on visual perception, offers solutions that combine aesthetics and function, prepares contemporary interiors that are comfortable and increases the quality of life for the user, can create the design of the immediate environment, and are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills. It aims to train 'architects'.
Educational content in the Department of Interior Architecture consists of theoretical lectures, workshops, seminars and interior design projects. In the education-training program; In addition to compulsory courses such as interior architecture knowledge, acoustics, lighting, fine construction elements, equipment design, aesthetics, material knowledge, structural knowledge, surveying, restoration, computer aided design, the interior design project courses are the main course, as well as elective courses belonging to different specializations. is located.
In order to benefit from the developing technology, the transfer of computer-aided design to students in two and three dimensions, thanks to CAD-based programs, is given continuously by the instructors, who are experts in CAD, from the second year of undergraduate education.
Project courses given from the first semester are the focus of interior architecture education. In the project courses, where the theoretical basis of meeting the psychological, sociological and physiological needs of human beings in the best way is given, it is essential to apply the knowledge obtained in the technical and theoretical courses. In the first year, the introduction to design methods, the concept and analysis of space, and interior architectural expression-transmission techniques are introduced, while the second year focuses on theoretical knowledge with courses such as carrier system knowledge, material knowledge, acoustics, and lighting. Practical studies on plumbing, ventilation, equipment design and environmental design have an important place since the third year. In the last year, lectures are given on universal design, ecological design, surveying, restoration, building quantity and exploration, especially the graduation project in which the learned theoretical knowledge is transformed into practice.
With the title of Interior Architecture, they can operate in relevant public institutions and organizations, in the private sector and in business environments in different fields.
Students who have successfully completed all of the courses available in the program (for a total of 240 ECTS), have achieved a weighted grade point average of at least 2.00 out of 4.00, and completed their professional internship for a total of 60 working days, including 30 working days in the office and 30 working days in the construction site, are awarded the title of 'Interior Architect'. are eligible to graduate.
