My love for interior design and space planning started in my youth. However, my technical skills and industry knowledge of products and services began as a student at MATC. The technical course in AutoCAD provided me with a foundation to learn SketchUp and Design Cabinet 20/20 softwares. These skills essentially led to a Kitchen Design position and other industry opportunities. As I continue to actively develop my interior designing skills.  I am grateful for the learning foundation the Interior Design Program has given me.

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.
