The Undergraduate Program in Interior Design FSRD ITB is the first interior design education program in Indonesia since 1959.

The Undergraduate Program in Interior Design aims to equip students with multidisciplinary skills and knowledge that combine creativity, technical expertise, and a deep understanding of human behavior to transform spaces into functional, aesthetic, sustainable, and meaningful environments. The curriculum may cover a wide range of design, art, architecture, and engineering subjects.

Research Topics
Here are some areas that might be covered in an interior design program at ITB:

  1. Design Principles: Students are introduced to fundamental design concepts, such as color theory, composition, form, and space. They learn how to apply these principles to create visually appealing interiors.
  2. Space Planning: This aspect of the program focuses on understanding the functional requirements of different spaces and how to optimize them for specific purposes. Students learn to analyze spatial needs, create floor plans, and effectively arrange furniture and fixtures.
  3. Materials and Finishes: These aspects may cover various materials used in interior design, including their properties, characteristics, and applications. Students learn about different finishes, such as paint, wallpaper, flooring materials, and textiles, and how to select appropriate materials for different design contexts.
  4. Building Systems: Students might study the basics of building systems, including lighting, heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC), and electrical systems. They learn to integrate these systems into their design plans to ensure comfort, functionality, and energy efficiency.
  5. Design Software: This program may include training in design software tools commonly used in the industry, such as computer-aided design (CAD) software and 3D modeling programs (Sketchup, etc.) and intelligent digital technology (BIM, DIGITAL TWIN, VR, AR). These skills enable students to create digital representations of their design concepts.
  6. Design Studio Projects: Interior design programs often include design studio courses where students work on real-world projects under the guidance of faculty members. These projects allow students to apply their knowledge and develop their design skills by working on various interior design challenges.
