About The College
Shree Devi College of Interior Design
Shree Devi College of Interior Design offers training in this art of beautifying living spaces. The college has all the requisite infrastructure needed to gain the best of knowledge, both theoretical as well as practical in the intricacies of interior designing and decoration.
Majority portion of our lives indoors – in the interior spaces created by the structures and shells of buildings. Interior Design goes beyond the architectural definitions of space. Interior designing is the planning, layout and design of interior spaces within buildings. The purpose of interior designing is the functional improvement, aesthetic enrichment and psychological enhancement of interior spaces.
Everyone wishes to reside, work or to be around in an aesthetically set room or building which needs the assistance of trained designers and decorators. Modern lifestyles demand a sophistication in interiors, both residential and commercial, that clearly define aesthetic inclinations.
There is a dearth of trained personnel who can cater to the increasing demand of distinct designs that incorporate beauty and practicability. They have to be sought in institutes and colleges that train interior designers, which at the moment are grossly inadequate. Therefore there is a pressing need to set up more colleges that impart specialized training in this stream.
The college has the credit of bagging the first rank in the Mangalore University examination consequently for the last 6 years.
