ECIA Recognised Education

Following the success of the introduction of the European Charter of Interior Architecture Training ECIA has introduced a recognition program for courses in Interior Architecture/Design and an educational membership for recognized institutions. In this program ECIA has recently certified Cork Institute for Technology in Ireland as a new educational member. The recognition program is in the focus of the ECIA board in order to spread the evaluation process widely to improve the quality in the educational training in Interior Architecture/Design.

Interior Architecture training should ensure that qualified practitioners have proper professional competence in Interior Architecture, including knowledge of technical systems and requirements as well as consideration of health, safety and ecological balance; that they understand the cultural, intellectual, historical, social, economic and environmental context of Interior Architecture; and that they comprehend and complet the Interior Architects role and responsibility in society.
