The Department of Fiber Science & Apparel Design (FSAD) at Cornell University is a small but active department. We are the only Fiber Science & Apparel Design department in the Ivy League.  The emphasis on apparel design and textiles as products and processes with meaning is the strength of the department. Our multidisciplinary approach builds on materials, design, biology, chemistry, engineering and social science concepts and methods.
