Interior Architecture is a Macintosh-based department, and it is the department's policy to ensure that all students are working with the same equipment and software. All undergraduate and graduate students are required to purchase a laptop as specified by the department (currently, the Mac BookPro; full details of equipment, charges and methods of payments are communicated to students before enrollment).
