The Department of Interior Architecture and Environmental Design aims to train interior designers who adopt human-environment relationships and universal design principles. It will achieve this through a training programme that makes the concept of interior space and environment sensitive on the aesthetic level.
It aims to respond to society’s needs in relation to space through the learning spaces that are intertwined with the design and production workshops. It is also aimed at circulating higher cultural values at the social level instead of an education that is isolated from society.
A graduate of ARUCAD’s Department of Interior Architecture and Environmental Design will have the creative solutions skills to manage the challenges that are faced in real life. Graduates can work in professional organisations such as architects, contractors and other design professionals, or choose to become an independent designer. Professional practice is an integrated part of the degree and, through live projects and case studies you are enabled to think about your work commercially.

Asst. Prof. Dr. Cem Yardimcicem.firstname.lastname@example.org
Having completed his undergraduate, master and doctorate studies at the Faculty of Architecture of Istanbul Technical University, Cem Yardımcı has served as a project director in various universities and as a jury member in national and international competitions. In addition to his research, Yardimci has awarded short films that he realized and directed.
Under the concept of Architectural Reflex, he explores the existence of a combination of theory/practice and architecture/video. He aims to bring together diverse mix media and technologies in architectural design, audio and video performance studies. In this process, he tries to host the open-source principle in his studies.
