One Year Diploma in Interior Design

The Interior Design Professional Diploma (IDPD) is conceptualized as a professional course at the National College of Arts, Lahore 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 a particular interior design projects, 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 assignments.
