The Official Undergraduate Degree in Interior Design trains students with a solid foundation in the fundamentals of designing spaces and defining perceptive, physical and functional characteristics of the environment.

The academics of the first year of the Degree in Interior Design focus on the acquisition of basic design knowledge (color, drawing), culture (the history of art and design) and project methodology, all of which are essential in establishing the foundations of a competent professional capable of working in any of the different fields of design.
The second year’s academics probe further into knowledge that is essential for product designers, such as representation tools, production material and systems technology, among others, which are fundamental for initiating students into the design of spaces.
The academics of the third and fourth years focus on students’ specializations as professionals responsible for analyzing and becoming a part of both private and public spaces (businesses, offices, cultural events, leisure spaces, hotels, etc.), obtaining the best possible performance by focusing on aesthetics and diverse functional and social elements, working towards the sustainability and accessibility of spaces. The fourth year culminates in a final degree project, which is a reflection of the students’ training, and a professional job application letter.
This program has been recognized by the Autonomous Government of Madrid and the Spanish National Government as an official Degree in Interior Design.
