Interior design Department – School of Design has 2+1+1 curriculum. On their 4th to 5th semester, students have wider option to take more experience on doing their mobility classes on other campus (for now it is only available in BINUS Jakarta and BINUS Malang as host campus). On their 6th to 7th semester, there are five enrichment programs that can be chosen by students based on their passion and knowledge. These programs are internship in industry, research in interior and furniture, community development, start-up business and study abroad program. With these experiences, students will gain more knowledge regarding their contribution to industry and community. The curriculum also accommodates the main objective of the program opening i.e., creating a qualified interior designer. Graduates will have entrepreneur spirit, well-equipped professional skills, excellent personality as well as the competency in ICT skills. Currently, the Interior Design program provides two concentrations that the students can choose from according to their goals and interests:

Commercial & Hospitality Design:

This stream provides students with an ability to design commercial & hospitality space, such as: design of apartments and houses, shops, restaurants, offices, hotels, hospitals, schools, etc.

Furniture and Interior Design Accessories:

This stream provides students with an ability to design furniture and accessories for both residential and commercial such as hotels, offices, restaurants, by observing the terms of ergonomics, functionality & aesthetic.

Smart Living & Environmental Design:

This stream provides students with an ability to apply the latest technology appropriately into spatial design. The skills include Experimental & Lighting Design, Environmental Graphic Design, Technology & Lifestyle in Design, Interior Product Prototyping, Exhibition Design, Environmental & Sustainability Design, Interior Behavior & Experience, dan Interior in Digital Interactive.

Techno Interior Design:

This stream provides students with an ability to apply techniques optimally in interior design projects by mastering the technical aspects of project presentation in accordance with technological trends.

Interior Design as a discipline contains the substance of various expertise which starts from the reality of its implementation in the realm of professional practice. These elements of professional practices demand that a professional interior designer have competence in terms of technique, thinking, design, execution, managerial, control, and supervision, as well as business management. Each of these elements has a specific requirement of expertise and together, all of them make the wholeness of interior design practice.

Streaming aims to give emphasis on several elements of expertise within the interior design profession. The objective of streaming should correlate to the needs in the professional world, as well as be adaptive-accommodative which means it can accommodate and be adaptive to many possible dynamics in professional practice. The scope must not be too narrow which can limit students’ knowledge and depth of understanding which contradict the design principle where creative thinking is needed to see a problem from many points of view to create innovation to tackle a design problem.

Based on previous considerations, the Interior Design (Bandung) Binus University proposes to replace Hospitality and Furniture Streaming, which have a narrow scope and emphasize mainly technical aspects, with Techno Design Streaming. Techno-design is an emerging field that gains much interest in the interior design world and will be vital in the future (sustainable). This field is also adaptive and accommodating in its application. On one side, techno-design can be applied to the learning process of space design, furniture design, and the design of other space element objects, then in relation to the technical stages (using software, hardware, or tools and equipment). On the other hand, streaming techno design can be used as the basis for real and actual premises that underlie the theories and methodologies that will be used in the process of designing spaces and interior objects.

Techno Design Streaming has two main focuses technological innovation design and smart sustainable design. Technological innovation design focuses on technological aspects of the response process to problems of design in the scope of human, space, and object relations behavior activities. This focus tries to solve operational functional problems of supporting activity facilities through a technology-based approach. Meanwhile, the focus of smart sustainable design is the escalation of the application of technological aspects that are narrowed in the effectiveness of activities in relation to energy efficiency and environmental sustainability issues. From the point of view of the profession and industry, mastery in these two focuses is a crucial bargaining power of competence for an interior designer in modern times.
