The MA Interior Architecture and Design at Heriot-Watt University Dubai explores the emerging symbiotic relationship between 'interior design' and 'interior architecture' in comprehending, crafting, and implementing innovative interior spaces.
There is currently a divide between what we regard as 'Interior design', and what we regard as 'Interior architecture'. However there is an on-going convergence of both fields, and an opportunity exists to fuse together the most influential elements of both; the creativity, process, and design thinking of designers, with the science, knowledge, and pragmatism of architecture.
Students are educated through a variety of studio projects, specialist subjects, and cross-disciplinary contextual and theoretical courses.
The programme attracts students primarily from an art, design, and architectural background, and expects that each student develop their own project, and concepts, that test and challenge perceived norms or patterns.
The MA Interior Architecture and Design programme is industry relevant. All teaching and learning is usually delivered through collaborative working, which simulates the industry environment. The university has connections with a number of professional partners that often provide live projects.
Our graduates can look forward to working roles such as: interior designer, design researcher, a strategy consultant, material and product designers, exhibition designer and specialised designer.
