Research in Functional Wearable Design by Dr. Adriana Gorea

​Research in Functional Wearable Design by Dr. Adriana Gorea

The interdisciplinary minor in engages students in interdisciplinary learning that covers key components of functional wearable design in science, technology, creativity, product design and prototyping, and user needs. Students use innovative design and interdisciplinary problem solving skills to tackle important product development problems that can provide better protection for human beings against harsh, and sometimes hazardous, environmental conditions during sporting or working activities, or enhance human performance and health. This minor will give students the chance to take what they learn in other disciplines, beyond Fashion and Apparel Studies courses, and think more rigorously and innovatively about how to use knowledge from other fields to design functional wearable products.
