Go Forward Designer

Your classroom is a design studio. You’ll choose a drafting table, not a desk. A computer lab with specialized design software is just for your program. So is a plotter, a sample room and a work room. All are available 24 hours a day.

Along your two year college journey, you’ll develop practical skills such as drafting and rendering. [Check out all the applied skills]. You’ll also learn design fundamentals, history, space planning, materials, sustainable building practices, residential construction, and finishes.

You’ll design and create. Then, design and create some more.

Get excited about putting your best into National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) student design competitions. Expect a challenge to design a space at Lakeland, or in the community.

Learn beyond Lakeland. You’ll attend national design shows and see showrooms in Calgary and Toronto.

You’ll graduate, after a practicum placement, with a great portfolio. Add a professional NKBA designation after 160 internship hours.
