Welcome to the Master Interior Architecture

As an interior architect, you build on spaces that ‘have an effect’. This two-year Master of Interior Architecture (HKU MIA) course trains you to be an interior architect. You learn how to work in a creative, communicative and investigative way and you find your own position in the professional field. You succeed in involving users in design processes and you develop research methods for including the experience of spaces in the result.

These three themes are key to HKU MIA:
  • ‘Human-centred’ design
  • Investigative design
  • Designing in a professional context
