    Class Motto:
    Ideas, Communication and Execution
    Every designer must be able to generate ideas and know why a particular idea is better than another.
    Designers must use effective communication skills to communicate their ideas to clients, other designers, and contractors.
    Designers must be able to know what needs to be done for the proper execution of their ideas. 

    The Architectural Interior Design program is designed to prepare students for employment or advanced post-secondary coursework in applied sciences for architectural and custom interior design, design production, commercial or home furnishings design and sales, furniture manufacturing, and as buyers for retail establishments. A student completing this program will possess the technical knowledge and skills associated with interior design drafting and rendering, production and selection, wholesale purchasing, sales, and promotion.
