IYRS is a world-class experiential learning school in Rhode Island with a hands-on education model dedicated to teaching highly technical and deeply craft-oriented career skills. IYRS currently has three accredited schools, School of Composites Technology, School of Boatbuilding & Restoration and School of Marine Systems. Additionally, IYRS regularly collaborates with post-secondary schools of architecture, preservation, industrial design and engineering through short-term classes, including recently with MIT, Harvard, RISD, Roger Williams and others.
