Welcome to Bachelor of Art (Hons) Interior Design in University College of Technology Sarawak (UCTS). As of 2021, UCTS is the only university in the Borneo region that offers a Bachelor Degree in Interior Design programme. We strive to offer professional and accessible education to our students in a conducive environment. Given the fact that UCTS is the only university in the world awarded with a Platinum rating in Green Building Index (GBI) for its campus design in promoting sustainability in the built environment and energy utilization, this provides a huge advantage and opportunity for the Interior Design students to learn and be inspired by the university campus.
As a professional course, our programme provides students with the path to become a Registered Interior Designer as recognised by Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia (LAM) and Malaysian Institute of Interior Designer (MIID).
•Graduates will be able to apply interior design knowledge and skills in professional practice.
•Graduates will be able to apply their abilities in interior design communication and collaborative skills with multi-disciplinary teams in the construction industry.
•Graduates will be able to interpret current interior design issues and apply appropriate solutions.
We provide student-centered learning approach through problem-based learning, co-operative & collaborative learning particularly in the studio, lectures, tutorials, site visits, and study trips. Students are expected to be actively involved in fieldwork and workshops to further upgrade their skills in design thinking, communication, and presentation. Students will also expose to theoretical and conceptual knowledge.
Following the School of Built Environment’s niche on emphasising on Borneo Regionalism, our programme focuses on Borneo’s rich cultural context and local issues through its core design course and related courses. Students are able to work closely with fellow students under different disciplines, i.e. from Architecture and Quantity Surveying programmes under the School of Built Environment.
