The Green Interior and Architectural Design Program prepares students to enter the world of spatial design. Specialized knowledge needed by an architect or interior designer includes spatial composition, drafting, space planning, building codes, and materials. Electives allow for more in-depth study of architecture, interior design, or illustration. Students are immediately valuable to employers upon graduation with our strong curriculum in CAD drafting. The program’s strengths in advanced levels of drafting and modeling means students can position themselves within interior and architectural design firms to further their training and development in their respective fields. The Green Interior and Architectural Design program provides courses that are helpful to students who seek to enhance their knowledge of Green Design, as well as expanding their marketability.

Interior Design and Architectural Design are state-licensed professions and all state requirements must be met before either title can be used.

Students planning to transfer to a college or university should check with the Collin academic advisor prior to beginning this program to verify course transferability.

All new students: Please contact one of the Green Interior and Architectural Design faculty or the college academic advisor prior to registering for any INDS courses. Please call 972.377.1676 or 972.377.1716 to make an appointment with a faculty member.
