New England Institute of Technology will soon welcome interior design students from the Norwegian School of Creative Studies through a newly formed international partnership. With six campuses throughout Norway, students who have completed two years of study at the design institute will be eligible to enroll in New England Tech’s Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design Technology program. Bringing their knowledge and techniques to our classrooms to share with New England Tech students, our program will afford the Norwegian students the opportunity to learn many new design concepts and practices. Students will study the fundamentals of interior design and building sciences through a combination of theoretical and practical concepts of design, building systems, components and construction. Advanced topics include finishes and materials, textiles, art history, estimating and scheduling, contracts and specifications, construction law, acoustics and lighting and interior construction documentation. Studio courses will allow students the opportunity to incorporate their knowledge and skills in a practical application to include space planning, hospitality, commercial and institutional projects.
The Norwegian School of Creative Studies has established similar partnerships with a number of international colleges and universities and is pleased to add New England Institute of Technology to its offerings. Interested students may contact our Director of International Admissions, Mark Seltzer, for information on applying for an international bachelor degree program.
