Course Objectives The course aims to provide students with general information about interior construction systems and details such as walls, floors, ceilings, interior materials and their properties and applications, and to provide students with knowledge of interior construction and materials. It enables them to understand how to create technical and application detail solutions for the details and material choices of interior building systems (wall, floor, ceiling).
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Have knowledge of the interior construction process and interior construction system and its associations with the base-building structural system and application methods.
  • Acquire knowledge of the technical properties and application details of interior materials.
  • Consciously select and recommend materials by evaluating their technical properties, performance values, and aesthetic qualities.
  • Determine the materials, transitions, and finishes used in the interior space.
  • Develop problem-solving, research, and decision-making skills both in the project and on-site.
Course Content Considering the relationship between the base building structural systems and interior construction;the course includes topics such as interior building elements(walls,floors, ceilings)and interior materials,acoustic and thermal comfort insulation materials and applications,horizontal vertical surface coverings,cladding transitions and finishes, windows,doors,product selection,and applications.
