The focal point of the study course is designing projects, the majority of which are related to real practice. Specifically, it is about the creative debate while dealing with aspects such as

•    Proportion
•    Colour and material
•    Light and illumination
•    Smell and sound
•    Function and use
•    Innovation
•    Feasibility
•    Sustainability
•    Presentation and display

The ‘interdisciplinary teaching’ in the first two semesters takes place parallel to the contents of Interior Design:

•    Basic principles of design / configuration
•    Working digitally
•    Basic artistic principles
•    Media, communication, aesthetics
•    History of design and art

‘Thinking outside the box’ in order to gain knowledge about other, associated design disciplines is encouraged and fostered here and in interdisciplinary projects later in the study course.

Studios, workshops and laboratories are available at the University for students to use for their practical assignments:

•    Carpentry workshop
•    Metalwork and model-making workshop
•    Experimental textile workshop
•    Materials library
•    Computer labs
•    Photography and television studios

One practical semester serves as a preparation for the daily work routine in the profession. During this time, the students gather their first job experiences while on industrial work placement at a partner company. The work placement and also single study semesters can both be completed abroad.
