perks of being a science student

You’re Distracting Me

Literally no one asked for this, but it’s happening anyways because I can. So yeah have some tree bros that I’ll be adding to ao3.

To Connor, finals didn’t mean much. He wasn’t on a scholarship, he didn’t need to pay for his own college, he just kinda cruised by. It was definitely different for some students, take his friend for example.

This is a submitted series by a writer who wished to stay anonymous, so I will be transferring their submissions to text posts yay! I just wanted to make it known that this work is not mine, and all credits go to the original author that decided to submit their series to my blog. Enjoy! :))

Summary: When Y/N moves to New York to attend a higher-level science and math school she only goes with the hope of getting a good education. But a certain cute nerdy with a camera makes her hope for a few other things as well.

Currently estimating this to be about twelve/thirteen chapters long and I’m gonna shoot for updates every Wednesday.

Super excited to be submitting this to the truly lovely Krys and I hope you all enjoy!

Spent some time studying relational databases for my Computing Science class, currently reading the Catcher in the Rye and taking notes, after which I’m gonna do the same with The Perks of Being a Wallflower, cos I’m comparing the two for my English dissertation! Afterwards I’m gonna work on a model essay for Modern Studies (or maybe two or three!).

What's the difference between interior design and interior design technology? Also where do you study? (:


Interior Design in general, is an art degree in most universities/colleges. Most of the time, the Interior Design degree is offered by the School of Art of any college. Depending on the college you choose, you will be exposed to various things in this discipline but will mostly focus on the aesthetic and artistic side of the field. You’ll probably learn Color Theory, Drawing for Interior Design, autoCAD (a program used to draw architectural and engineering drawings), Textiles, History of Architecture, History of Furniture etc. You’ll be equipped to design and decorate an interior space. 

Interior Design Technology, which is what I’m studying, has an added perk of being part architectural in the courses it offers. I’m doing what I’d like to describe as an interior architecture program. I learn design courses and art courses like students in other colleges but I also learn architectural things like space planning, Lighting, Sustainable Design, Architectural Presentation, Interior Materials and Application, Project Management, Residential and Commercial Construction, just to name a few. I’m studying in Indiana-University-Purdue-University-Indianapolis (IUPUI) in Indiana. My degree will be conferred by the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology. So in fact, I’ll be getting a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design and NOT Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design. 

Value-wise, my program (and others like mine that gives due focus to architectural and technical skills) will be more valuable to an employer as I have the skills of an architect but the design training of an interior designer. Not many colleges offer this pathway into Interior Design unfortunately and plenty of colleges train “Interior Decorators” more than “Designers”. The difference is that a Decorator knows all kinds of design principles and uses them but may not know how to draft, use autoCAD, plan lighting fixtures, plan spaces accordingly and understand construction processes and codes whereas a “Designer” has all the skills of a Decorator PLUS some of an Architect. It’s the best of both worlds, IMHO.

I love my degree program and in just one semester, I’ve learned a ton - I now know how to draft by hand, draft using autoCAD, plan spaces, understand design principles and elements, understand the design process as well as the construction process and also how to draw interiors. I’m only a Freshman but I can tell you that the skills I’ve learned so far are priceless! 

Depending on where you live, I’d advise you to look into ID programs that have the technology/architectural element in them. Otherwise, you might want to do the ID program and see if you can minor in architecture or perhaps, after you graduate, get a Master’s in Architecture. I’d also advise you to look at the courses the program offers first before signing up. If they teach you technical skills like the ones I’ve listed, then great! If they only have art courses, I’d say you should look into getting the technical skills elsewhere. 

That’s the short answer. Let me know if you’d like to know anything else. I also have the curriculum for my Bachelor’s if you want to see it. 

PS: These are just my honest opinions. If there are any ID students who disagree, let me know.
