Interior Design

 Course Overview

Interior Design continues to be a dynamic and growing profession. Here at EPCC, our program has provided the design industry with creative, qualified, and knowledgeable designers for over 25 years.  We remain strong, committed and moving forward with education, technology, and success.

Defined Design is a planned arrangement where basic elements and principles work together to create a pleasing, functional and safe environment.

The designer is an individual that can accommodate all the basic elements to produce a well organized and aesthetically pleasing space. These individuals are creative, imaginative, and artistic. Combine their knowledge with artistic vision, they can work with clients and develop design solutions that are safe, functional and attractive.

El Paso Community College offers an Associate of Applied Science degree in Interior Design Technology  and  a one year Certificate of Completion Program.  Each can lead the student to a career in one of the most dynamic professions available.

Our facilities include fully equipped fabric and a finished library, State-of-the-art equipment, the latest software programs utilized in the design industry, a resource library, and a licensed instructor/program Coordinator

The Interior Design Technology Program prepares individuals for entry-level employment and provides continuing education opportunities for those already in the Interior Design field. From understanding color psychology, textile application or lighting sources, we provide the education that leads to a successful career.

Through our courses in computer-aided drafting and space planning and interior design graphics, our students expand their knowledge in technology and its wide use throughout the design industry.

With input provided by our advisory board members and by following academic standards, our courses reflect and meet the needs of our design community.

Part of the curriculum includes site visits to some of the most dynamic design business in El Paso, TX., Las Cruces, NM., and Juarez, Chih., MX. Our students may also participate in the EPCC Interior Design Student Club or the Student Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID).
 
Enter one of the most diversified and exciting careers.  Become the next generation of innovative, imaginative, and creative designers.
