RALEIGH, N.C. (April 27, 2016) - Future interior designers at Wake Tech are showing off their talent for turning old buildings into fresh, multi-purpose spaces. Students in the Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree program in Interior Design demonstrated what they’ve learned on Wednesday, April 27, at the City of Raleigh Museum. 

The event showcased the students’ Capstone class project, in which they worked in teams to redesign a vacant school for mixed use, with retail on the first floor and residential units on the second. The project spans an entire semester, and the class is required for graduation. Students presented their plans and drawings on display boards and networked with industry professionals at the museum event. 

“We’re so proud of our students!” said Andrea Ledezma, associate professor and director of Wake Tech’s Interior Design program. ““They’ve accomplished so much. They worked hard on their projects, especially this one, and it shows. The projects were very well received by local professionals.” 

Interior design student Valerie Andrews says she was excited to share her work: “We all worked really hard over this final semester and were elated to get such great feedback from everyone. Now we feel even more confident about graduating and going into the industry.” 

Wake Tech’sInterior Design curriculum prepares students for a variety of job opportunities, including residential and non-residential design; facility management; set and showroom design; and sales. Studies focus on technical knowledge, professional practices, and aesthetic principles, and curriculum content includes architectural drafting, technical software, codes, space planning, color theory, and universal design.
