The Department of Interior Design & Technology (Formally, Furniture Design and Production) runs a programme in HND Interior Design and Technology. Some of the courses offered are Material Science and Technology, Joinery, Upholstery, AutoCAD, Effective Resource Management, Total Quality Management, Principles of Design, Occupational Health and Safety, among others. Those Courses are taught as Modulus and training systems used is the Competency-Based Training (CBT).The students enrolled on the HND Interior Design and Technology programme will complete as Interior Technologists, and can be employed as Production Managers/Supervisors in Furniture and Joinery companies, Maintenance Officers in Estate, Designers in Furniture and Joinery companies, Cost estimators in Building and Furniture set-ups, Designers, Consultants in interior decoration, joinery and furniture production, Contractors in Interior fixtures and others. The Production unit, with its well-equipped workshops and experienced technicians, undertake all kinds of interior works with materials such as wood, aluminum Perspex among others. We fabricate by order for all categories of customers. We also undertake upholstery works.
