Emphasis on teamwork is another important characteristic of the program worth to be mentioned.

In these studios students gradually learn to solve the problems they may face as an professional interior architect through designing interior spaces with various functions and in different contexts. The theoretical courses are planned to support this process. The wide range of our Presentation Techniques and Computer Aided Design courses empowers our students in presenting their design ideas in the best way. Elective courses are the other very important components of the program which allows students to specialize in different areas.
