Please join us for our fall 2019 open house. The day will include program overviews, highlights of our areas of expertise, Q&A sessions with faculty and current students, as well as an opportunity to sit in on our studios and design labs, tour our material fabrication shop and facilities, and take part in a portfolio workshop. Our faculty and current graduate students make themselves available throughout the day and at the closing reception. We hope that you will be able to attend this in-depth introduction to graduate studies at Cornell.
