Architecture and design faculty 

Nowadays, design is everywhere–from everyday objects such as furniture and kitchen utensils to luxury items such as designer fashion and high-end vehicles. Design is also ever-present in the ways that we consume information: in social networks, physical publications, and the creative marketing that we see all around us. Furthermore, designers play an integral role in the way we perceive both brands and commercial entities as well as civic institutions. This means that anyone working in design needs to be able to work with people from a range of different disciplines and cultural backgrounds. Our faculty offers study programs in architecture, interior design, product design, and graphic design and visual communication, in which students learn to provide innovative solutions to contemporary design challenges across many fields.
