INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE & PRODUCT DESIGN
OPEN FACULTY POSITIONS
The Department of Interior Architecture & Product Design has two open faculty positions.
TRANSFORMING SOCIETY: The Master of Interior Architecture & Product Design strives to provide a comprehensive and vibrant approach to studying design. From (re)constructing building interiors to individual products, our students are grounded in the essential process of inquiry, design and the making of space and form. With an innovative curriculum that combines the three distinct but complimentary fields of interior architecture, product design, and furniture design, our faculty prepare students to transform society.
WHY JOIN US: The Interior Architecture and Product Design Department (IAPD) is housed in the College of Architecture, Planning and Design alongside the Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Regional Planning Departments. This creates a robust environment of creative disciplines ripe with collaborative opportunities and infrastructure. We have also moved into a renovated and newly built building, Seaton/Regnier Hall. This new facility has the latest in technology and houses a world class facility with 20,000 sq. ft. of fabrication and research laboratories. The department offers a five-year Master of Interior Architecture and Product Design program, and a three-year post-baccalaureate program (MIAPD) as the first-professional degree.
ABOUT OUR PROGRAM: Accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) since 1974 and also approved by NASAD (the National Association for Schools of Art and Design), the IAPD program is built upon a 50-year tradition of providing students with a nationally recognized and innovative education. The College of Architecture, Planning and Design was chosen by professionals surveyed by Designlntelligence for "America's Best Architecture & Design Schools 2014" and in 2017 as the 6th best Interior Design graduate program in the nation, and the number 1 ranked public graduate program.
OUR K-STATE COMMUNITY: K-Staters consider themselves family, and that belief shines through contributions as diverse as our members. Researchers invent solutions to problems that could save a life halfway across the world, and students band together on a Saturday morning for community service. Thousands of Wildcat fans pack our stadiums shouting in unison, and our leadership guides us in ways befitting the obligations of a land-grant university.
In fact, these obligations could be considered our family values, and the many ways we achieve them are the Wildcat Way. We invite you to come along for the ride, because there's always room for one more in the K-State family. More about Kansas State University.
