“Although the education focuses on interior design, thanks to comprehensive design approach, we have the opportunity to study other art branches in the field, like industrial design or landscape architecture. As a result of practical training and a creative cooperation between faculties, we also have the opportunity to get to know a wide range of materials, techniques as well as establish new relationships, thus we can acquire a wider spectrum of knowledge.” - Our alumna ANNA FEHÉR
“I had the feeling, based on the name of the specialization that environmental design monitors architectural, interior design and design processes in general comprehensively, from far and also from very close, and this was what persuaded me to study here.” - Our alumna ESZTER ANNA MAROSI
"The major at METU is amazing and I would love to share the knowledge in my community after I finish" - Our alumna HEBA HASSAN from Egypt
