Duration of studies
IEK studies include 5 terms (semesters). Four of these terms, that is 1,200 hours, are theoretical and laboratory classes, whereas in the 5th term students become interns and apprentices for 960 hours (Training Practice).
IEK graduates of this specialization are employed in construction agencies and architects' offices or can become freelancers. They design blueprints using modern technology, organise the construction or renovation work to be done and often estimate the cost and the time needed. Artistic skills and fine taste, as well as knowledge, are necessary characteristics of a skilled decorator.
