Prospects for Students

While studying at the Department of Interior and Furniture Design, students, under the guidance of teachers, perform research work, master the skills of collecting materials, analysis, generalization, substantiation of scientific and creative design conclusions - that is, develop their analytical thinking. They need this knowledge not only as future scientists or specialists, but also in communication, when there is a need to express their views in a business way, to convince the customer of the feasibility of a solution.

The combination of acquired knowledge with practical application, active participation in prestigious competitions gives students the opportunity to implement the boldest ideas and design solutions, improve the art of project presentation and be constantly in creative search. The general idea of the environment, which is laid down at the beginning of the design process, is important. And if the designer sees a holistic picture: one style, an interesting idea - from designing complex surfaces to lighting the environment, filling it with furniture and other household items - then the project will be of high quality, and its implementation will satisfy both the designer and the customer.

During their studies at the Department of Interior and Furniture Design, students acquire knowledge in project development and graphic design, landscape design, formation of forms and colour theory, interior design, design of small architectural forms, furniture design, advertising, computer graphics, landscape form formation and colour selection, etc. Students get acquainted with the basics of scientific research in the field of design and modern research methods.

In the process of teaching fundamental and professional-oriented courses, modern teaching methods are actively used, taking into account the creative developments of famous designers, and the latest models of furniture equipment from leading companies in the world, using computer technology and professional-oriented software.

Students of the Department gain knowledge both within the framework of university-wide cycles and according to original programs of professional courses, which are constantly modernized in order to comply with international standards of training designers of various areas of project activities.

After completing the studies, the graduate will know:

  • Methods and ways of designing and constructing furniture;
  • Principles of development of landscape design projects;
  • Interior design technologies;
  • project normative documents;
  • Furniture production technologies;
  • Procedure and rules for the use of computer-aided design (CAD) systems;
