    You could become an interior designer after a civil engineering background by going to school for another degree. Of course, you could find internships in the design department of any construction company as well. Keep in mind that the secret to success is to pursue your passion and be creative in your solutions! Good luck!

    An interior design career is an excellent field for a Civil Engineering degree, and many Civil Engineers go on to be successful Interior Designers. Graduates in this field are able to work with clients to develop budgets, based on price, functionality and aesthetics. They may also help plan where the furniture goes in the home (or any other building). And of course they design any necessary fixtures and decor.

    There are several ways to go about this:
    1) Associate's degree in Interior Design. This will take less time than a Bachelor's Degree and not require as many years of schooling. Students will learn how to make sketches and plans, pick colors, design furnishings, etc.
    2) Associate's in Architectural Engineering or Architecture with emphasis on structure. First three years are the same for both degrees with additional focus on architectural engineering during senior year leading up to eventual licensure. It is possible to earn an architecture license by obtaining one of these degrees while continuing studies at graduate level for Master of Architecture (6-8 more years).

    Civil engineers have to know the various building materials, construction methods and phases, structural analysis, and how to draw up plans. Translating this knowledge into a home or public space is an interior decorator's job. Learning interior design can help you translate your engineering skills into drawing out the specs for new buildings in addition to designing rooms that are appealing aesthetically. Interior designers typically learn about apartments/homes, product use and sales, color trends in interiors (and fashion), window treatments (blinds versus curtains), types of wall coverings like paint or wallpaper- plus everything related to lighting fixtures. There are some vocational schools that offer training programs for both civil engineering as well as interior desig
