Interior Architecture and Design

Designing a space is about understanding how it’s used.

We understand that interior spaces must constantly evolve as their purpose – and our everyday world – changes. That’s why we offer interior architecture and design courses at Swinburne.

Interior architecture and design courses are an opportunity to explore how our everyday environments, including commercial and residential spaces, are formed, constructed and continuously revised as the world changes. You’ll explore designing for the needs of people and learn how to provide advice and assistance on the finishing and furnishing of existing interiors, to meet client requirements. We pair this knowledge with skills in conceptual processes, creative tools and management, and integrate design projects which demonstrate how to create and plan furniture, fittings, surfaces and colour schemes. It’s our way of showing how to apply interior architecture and design in a range of contexts.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have the confidence and skills to apply your knowledge to the workplace. Future careers can be found in design management, design consultancies and project work ranging from retail to exhibitions to urban spaces.

The Swinburne Advantage

We turn knowing into know-how.

We believe an undergraduate education must be about more than knowledge. In today’s competitive job market, it must be about true job readiness.

Work Integrated Learning is a key part of the Swinburne Advantage. It’s just a matter of choosing the opportunity that suits your future.

Choose from professional degrees, professional placements, professional internships, industry-linked projects, industry study tours and accreditation placements. There are also a range of other opportunities you can create.

You’ll build invaluable skills and confidence in knowing you have what it takes to land a job in your field by graduation.

We think it’s an approach that makes the adventure worth taking.
