Returning to school at MATC has taught me many valuable skills, and I’ve found how much I enjoy the process of creating good design, in addition to seeing the end result. Digital drafting and rendering projects have been some of my favorite aspects of the program, and I find such joy in watching my vision come to life as the drawings progress. Now working as a Design Assistant with a local design/build firm, following an internship there, I look forward to providing clients with spaces that are not only beautiful to look at, but function better than they could have even imagined.

Interior designers use creativity, technical knowledge, and aesthetics to create solutions that improve the function and quality of interior environments. Coursework includes manual and computer-aided design (CAD) drawing, and commercial and residential planning.

Demand for interior designers is strongest in kitchen and bath design and remodeling, and in corporate and industrial facilities design.

The Interior Design program features exploratory courses that count toward a credential. Contact an MATC advisor for information.
