    According to the dictionary, design is a plan or drawing produced. But everyone has different definition. For me, design is when you transform your ideas into satisfying outcomes and you feel relief about it, where words couldn’t simply express. Design makes our life, dreams and future. My job is to design, innovate and create surprises for life. But it’s not only a job. It’s my passion and I can make things possible! If I can do it, so can you!

    MIA is a very good platform to learn Art & Design with a reasonable cost. Especially the Interior design program, which is well known in the design and construction industries, which makes the graduate easily absorbed to the market standard and requirement.

    The course syllabus is also appropriate and relevant to the Program. Most importantly I would like to thank all the experienced lecturers that helped me in many ways during my study at MIA. Without their guidance and advice I won’t be at my position right now. I’m willing to give my time to help and support MIA, especially the interior design department whenever needed.
