What Our Alumni are Saying
“My education through Weber State’s interior design program gave me the technical, creative thinking, & presentation skills necessary to be competitive
within the design industry. As a result, I was able to obtain employment after graduation with a top architecture & design firm and am
now designing resorts, hotels, casinos, & restaurants around the world.”

“By far, the interdisciplinary charette exercise brought a real-world and very applicable experience. The team effort and demanding deadline
components are exactly what we do weekly in the design firm I am a part of. Additionally, the NCIDQ test prep, AutoCAD, kitchen & bath,
codes and lighting courses have proven invaluable. Contractors and associates are impressed with what I am able to bring to job site meetings in
real-time application. As a result I am well-prepared to work in bigtime high-end residential design/build environments.”

What Architecture and Design Firms are Saying
"Since I joined our architectural practice 13 years ago, we have always had an interior designer on staff. All of our designers have been products of the WSU Interior Design program and I would never look anywhere else for future interior design staffing needs. The students that we have hired from the WSU program have always been incredibly well prepared with well-rounded educations, excellent design skills, wonderful communication and presentation skills and robust skill sets. I have had the opportunity to attend several WSU Interior Design functions in the past and have always been impressed with the quality of the directors and instructors, the quality of the students design work … and of course … the students themselves."
Tony K. Pantone, AIA, LEED AP
“As an employer consistently searching for the best talent coming out of design programs, the school that never disappoints is Weber State University. Their students graduate with a clear understanding of the design industry, which can encompass everything from extensive technical skills, to thinking and working creatively. This gives their students the ability to work with clients in a variety of settings. Their graduates can hit the ground with their feet running and immediately generate revenue for our firm. I’m consistently impressed with their program, it rivals any other - in or out of the State of Utah."
