The PGD in Interior Design is a professional course for individuals aiming for comprehensive understanding of technical, functional, and representational aspects of professional practice in the area of interior design. This 1-Year course familiarizes students with the tools, techniques, and processes to understand varied issues of particular interior design project, resolve the issues through functional and schematic development, prepare working and technical drawings and finally monitor execution. Given the constraint of one academic year, the scope of this diploma covers the more pragmatic concerns of design, although conceptual and philosophical development and discussion is encouraged, we encourage research through reference books, meeting related professionals, and visiting sites. Moreover, these aspects are also made part of the assignment.
