Our students continue to excel within the industry. Last month, our Master of Interior Architecture student Silvian Maltoni was awarded the NEWH (Hospitality Industry Network) Hospitality Scholarship. She received the scholarship award on Wednesday, December 10th at the South Florida NEWH Holiday and Awards Event held at the Historic Coral Gables Women’s Club.
Maltoni competed among Hotel/Restaurant Management, Culinary/Foodservice, Architecture, Interior Design, and students from similar programs across South Florida for this award. We are very proud of her accomplishment!
In the MIA degree program, our students learn about designing the interior portions of various settings, including those associated with hospitality. Designing both public and private interior spaces requires expertise that includes aesthetic theory, environment and behavior theory, and technical knowledge associated with building systems, building construction, finish material selection and installation, code requirements for different building occupancies, and the business, ethical, and legal ramifications of running an interior design business.
