Course content

The Interior Design MA at DMU is a creative, practice based course with an inspiring curriculum that will broaden and deepen your design skills and knowledge. It is aimed at working designers and newly qualified aspirational designers.

The programme will provide you with an opportunity to develop, research and practise design skills to an advanced level, and to apply these skills to the formulation, investigation and detailed development of a personally selected design project. Particular emphasis is placed on the integration of research within the creative design process and the effective rationalisation of the relevant functional, legislative, idealistic and aesthetic parameters.

Modules are taught through seminars, lectures, team working and design workshops, supported by tutorials and guidance. You will undertake independent research, analysis, design development and writing-up of your projects, supported by individual tutorials. Typical contact time will be 19 hours per week. Assessment methods include report submissions, individual and group presentations (oral and design based presentations) and a major design project submission.

Teaching staff have a wide variety of expertise and knowledge in many different areas, including interior design, design management, innovation management, creativity management, enterprise, technology transfer, multimedia design, web design, new product development, design history, retail design and resource efficient design. You will have access to excellent CAD and workshop facilities including soft modelling, wood, plastics, metal fabrication, metal machining and finishing. The workshops house four computer numerically controlled (CNC) milling machines, a CNC lathe, two laser cutters, a vinyl cutter and three rapid prototyping (RP) machines with a 3D paper printer and CNC water-jet cutter. This equipment allows you
to experiment with techniques and finishes to a high level, adding unique self-development to your portfolio.

You will graduate with a wide range of design skills creating career opportunities in retail, public spaces, leisure environments, contract interiors and workplaces, working for employers such as Conran Design, Pinewood Studios, Kelly Hoppen, Tesco's Design, Think Tank, Blue Print, Haley Sharpe and Foster + Partners. Opportunities are also available in further research study at PhD level.
