It is the dream of one and all to have a functional, aesthetically furnished, economical and technically strong house. This dream can come true by doing specialization in 3rd year of B.Sc. (Hons) Home Science in Interior Design and Resource Management. Management of a home involves the use and creation of resources to achieve goals. Resources are the means to achieve goals but they are becoming scarce and limited, both quantitatively and qualitatively. Thus the optimum use of resources, ways to increase their availability and conservation is the need of the hour.
The profession of Interior Design has a lot of scope since it is relatively new in India and is developing fast. It has gained enormous popularity. The students study courses related to Interior Space Planning, Design and Display Analysis, Interior Decoration, Furnishings and Furniture Designing, Household Equipment and Ergonomics. Students gain practical experience by preparing drawings of both residential and commercial sectors. They also study Computer Aided Design (CAD) in detail, which helps the student to make their work more professional in order to meet the current market demands and to increase their job prospects. Thus, the courses offered by the department encompass in depth knowledge of Resource Management and Interiors.
This course provides outlet for numerous job opportunities in private (Corporate and Commercial) and public sector. The students can work as free lancers or can also be co- workers with architects, contractors, interior decorators and real estate companies. Teaching in schools, colleges, polytechnic institutes can be another attraction after studying these courses. Hence it is not only a creative, innovative and interesting field to study but has enormous job opportunities as well.
