With the economic growth, the demands for housing and commercial space have increased manifold. This has given steep rise to the demand for Competent Professionals and skilled Technical Associates in Building and Interiors Industry.Increased awareness about the quality of Interior spaces in all spheres of activity(*referred to as “Industry”) has enhanced the demand for Interior Design Professionals who can work at a cutting edge level in a professional and holistic manner.
Educational Institutes -Industry collaborations have a long tradition and have brought forward excellent results for both sides as well as for society at large.
Brick School of Interior Design has understood the significance of this collaboration and has entered into agreement with the leading representatives of the Interior Design Industry to facilitate support and for the mutual benefit including one or more of the general cooperation areas like Joint industry and research activities, update and enrich syllabus to the industry needs, facilitate hands on experience for developing specialized skills, extend invitations for attending scholarly and technical meetings as well as national and international conferences, conventions and summits and Create awareness; expose students to processes, changing trends, use of standardized components in customized interiors and cutting edge tools and technologies.

This Industry partnership we believe will improve the quality of life of the citizens in the contemporary and future societies by sharing knowledge, experience, technological advancement and holistic understanding of our students.


Intermediate Internships during summer vacations promises to be one of the unique initiatives of the Brick School of Interior Design, as theory and practice through “learning by doing” is bound to develop and equip the students both intellectually and professionally.

To maintain a balance between theoretical and practical aspects of Interior Design and to gain self-confidence, accept responsibility and learn from their mistakes our students of First, Second year and Third would be exposed to a one-month SWE(Summer Work Experience) in the vacations between the Academic years. This, they would get, we believe only if they are exposed to the education beyond the four walls of their classroom and If they are introduced to the working of Design Industry in the initial stage of their learning.

This practical experience and understanding is supervised and evaluated by a qualified mentor/faculty and documented, reflecting the experience and understanding in Organizations and Management, The initiative on their part and the valuable experience they gain in this period will fetch them credit points during their RDID program.

The feedback, suggestions and valuable inputs from the employing Professionals after the training, in turn, will constantly help us in the improvement of our curriculum and enhance the skills of our students as per the Industry expectations in future.
