The education model and the program competences (outputs) have been set according to the orders and criterias of UIA (The International Union of Architects), CIDA (Council for Interior Design Accreditation) and MIAK (Architectural Accrediting Board - Turkey) with a wide perspective and considering the national-international accreditation conditions.
An interdiciplinary education-training model called “Integrated Education-Training Model for Design” has been set up and started to be applied at the beginning of the 2011-2012 Fall semester in Faculty of Architecture. This model gives a common education opportunity to interior architecture students with Architecture and Nautical Design programs. According to this, the students of the Interior Architecture Program take common courses with Architecture and Nautical Design programs for the first year. In the second year, students take common courses only with the Architecture program. All the field elective courses of the three programs in faculty are implemented to this common education model.
