Cape Peninsula University of Technology Interior Design Course

The practice of interior design relates to architecture on the one hand and to industrial design on the other. The aim of the course is to develop awareness and skills ranging from design in building to furniture design, and could be defined as the creative problem-solving process applied to the practice solution of three-dimensional programs, primarily within the environment of buildings.


Knowledge of the performance of materials and the possibilities they offer in construction is thoroughly researched and understood. Our students are well-versed in the skills required to communicate their design intention and be productively employable on graduation.

The Interior Design program at CPUT is committed to the development of a theoretical basis for the study and practice of design where creativity is linked with and runs parallel to theory. The program’s educational agenda is to challenge the accepted assumptions about Interior Design and test new ideas through design project work.
