The Interior Architecture & Industrial Design department offers two master’s degrees. One that focuses on Interior Architecture, or MIARC, and another on Industrial Design, or MINDD. These degrees engage our students to (re)envision building interiors and the consumer products of the future. Our students are instructed in the essential process of inquiry, design and the making of space and form. With innovative curriculums, our degrees prepare our students to become professional leaders in their industry to shape places we live and work and the products we use every day.

A Hidden Gem of design education at Kansas State University


Meet Roo


This occasional table and accessories is an award winning design by Garrett Steinlage ('17) and Chelsea Flickinger ('17). It was developed in a partnership with OFS a national manufacture of furniture. Roo hit the marketplace by storm at the 2018 Neocon, the Chicago based expo. NeoCon serves as the commercial design industry’s launching pad for innovation in interior products. In this launch Roo was the Winner of Best of Neocon 2018 — Silver Award in the occasional tables category and won an Honors Innovative Product (HIP) accessories award in 2019 as they added a plant stand and a coat tree to the product line. These two students, now design professionals, have achieved with this recognition what other designers wait their whole lifetimes to accomplish. With Roo these designers, along with the IAID department, receive royalties from OFS as it sales nationwide. This product showcases the type of talent our students and faculty have in designing for today and tomorrow.
