IND501 INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE PROJECT I 3 3 0 8
This studio introduces students to basic design principles, design theory and concept development within the context of a medium to large scale environment with certain cultural, social or spatial characteristics. The defined subject in the design studio starts with the concept work and the theoretical framework is investigated in the literature. Emphasis will be placed on analytical approaches to critical issues in interior architecture such as data gathering, analysis studies, the site of the project, design process, problem solving, spatial organization, anthropometrics, universal design awareness, and presentation techniques. The course includes the relevant material to help students develop the ability to transform the data they collect into architectural knowledge, interpret and present them in a context where architectural design problem is interrogated.

IND502 INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE PROJECT II 3 3 0 8
The course includes once more the relevant material to help students develop the ability to transform the data they collect into architectural knowledge, interpret and present them in a context where architectural design problem is interrogated. The theoretical courses are supported with case studies of spaces and places where an understanding of architecture through structural, constructional, sociological and environmental determinants are targeted. Studio focuses on design of a medium to large-scale residential or corporate interior with emphasis on programmatic requirements leading to a synthesized and identifiable environment. Studies involve concept and design development; programming; space planning; selection and design of furniture, finishes and equipment; materials, lighting systems; architectural details; code compliance and presentation.
IND590 SEMINAR 0 0 0 12
The aim of this major area unit is to develop students' systematic and methodological capability of academic research, and consequently be able them to research, investigate, evaluate, interpret and synthesize theoretical knowledge and/or practical works independently and unconventionally, and to discuss and present their ideas academically. The graduate seminar gives an opportunity for independent and investigative study in various aspects of the research. Small group discussion and critique sessions with faculty advisors and thesis students are provided. Seminar focuses on the dissertation, data collection, programming, building, site selection, design development, documentation, and presentation. The course includes the expression of the topic, and the discussion on the related theoretical and practical issues, presentation of the consequences, the discussion of the seminar subject in regard to historical background and/or recent theoretical and practical developments of architecture.

IND500 THESIS 0 0 0 40
Students should show their competency in the profession by making the necessary research and and writing a research report under the guidance of their supervisor. The student will be responsible to read the recommended readings and to make the research related with the topic. After mutual discussions and critics the student will finalize the thesis. Supervised independent research on a topic arranged between the student and faculty member assigned as advisor and approved by the institute. The dissertation must be an original contribution to the field of Interior Architecture, enhancing analytical thinking and developing a systematic approach to the research problem.

GRD507 COMPUTERS IN DESIGN 3 3 0 40
This course focuses on each student's personal design vision. Students explore the specific skills necessary to design posters, catalogues as a unique means of communication. The aim of this course is that introducing students and providing comprehensive knowledge with practices to Graphic Design and digital media applications. Working from concept to finished artwork, students develop to transfer the creative thinking to applications and digital Graphic Design tools, methods and strategies for producing effective graphic design solutions. This course aims to analyze and implement the basics of 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional modeling and design in graphic design by using Adobe Programs.
GRD504 LIGHTING AND COLOR 3 3 0 40
The aim of this course is to introduce the color knowledge, general color harmony rules, color's cultural and psychological effects and to sustain proper color use in graphic design. Student research, preparing report/essay on defined subjects. Besides the lectures of theoretical color culture, to examine the color harmonies by studies of warm-cold-achromatic-monochromatic color.

IND507 HISTORY OF FURNITURE AND ARCHITECTURE 3 3 0 40
The course enhances student’s critical comprehension of historic styles and the impact they have on contemporary design solutions. The survey begins with the Egyptian period and provides an overview of the history of furniture and architecture through the Industrial Revolution, including ancient Greece and Rome, the Gothic and Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo periods. Emphasis will be placed on chronological periods, the visual characteristics of each style including regional idiosyncrasies, and the terminology relevant to a study of furniture and architecture. The second part of the course extends the investigation into the 20th century, while addressing issues concerning preservation, restoration, rehabilitation, and adaptive re-use. With field trips and onsite work, students will become actively involved in stylistic progression and local living history.

INAR108 INTRODUCTION TO CONSTRUCTION 0 3 0 40
Introduction to Construction course covers the load-bearing and non-load-bearing elements of solid load-bearing wall structural system and frame (skeleton) structural system. Therefore the sub-structural elements such as soil types and excavation, trenching and shoring, surface water and drainage, foundations, foundation walls, ground floor construction; and the super structural elements such as walls (stone and brick masonry walls, reinforced concrete monolithic walls, timber and steel frame walls and sandwich panel walls), floors (reinforced concrete slab, slab and beam, ribbed, waffle and composite floors), columns and beams, stairs and ramps, and chimneys are examined. In this course it is aimed to enable the architectural students to use the constructional knowledge in their architectural design projects.
