College Profile: Institute of Design and Construction
IDC’s mission is to provide you the opportunity to have a better life through a career in architecture, interior design or the construction technologies.
The Institute of Design and Construction (IDC) is a private, non-profit institution registered by the New York State Department of Education, accredited by the New York State Board of Regents and authorized to confer Associate Degrees in Occupational Studies.
IDC was founded in 1947 by Vito P. Battista, R.A. and is located in downtown Brooklyn. Its primary goal is to offer undergraduate and professional training and to prepare individuals for rewarding careers in the building construction industry.
The Institute is a pioneer in the educational program now known as the ‘Work and Study Plan.’ This full-time day program was started in 1952, and consists of two semesters of accelerated course study in the architectural and building construction fields. At the end of the first year, students work during the day and return to evening school to complete their training toward an Associate Degree in Occupational Studies. This Work/Study program requires 2-1/2 years to complete. The evening school program requires three years to complete. In 1997, IDC added an Interior Design major to its Architectural Technology program.
IDC’s day program has made available an architectural or construction education to talented students in the shortest possible time, and makes an education in these fields attainable for students who are unable to afford a full-time university education. The school graduates highly trained individuals who meet the demands of the building construction industry.
