About IYRS School of Technology & Trades

Welcome to IYRS, an experiential learning school that helps prepare students to enter a global maker and manufacturing workforce. IYRS teaches the art and science of making, building, restoring and maintaining, and in the process, helps its graduates build both careers and more meaningful lives – inspired by the knowledge that in their hands and through the use of technology, they have the power to build almost anything.

IYRS currently has three accredited programs, Composites Technology, Boatbuilding & Restoration and 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. With campuses in Newport and Bristol, RI, IYRS offers an extraordinarily attractive location to study.

β€œIt was an amazing atmosphere with great people. It was a relatively small staff so it was really inviting, the staff at IYRS does a great job of making you feel welcomed and comfortable. There was not a lot of pressure on "perfection" which made me feel comfortable and allowed me to work effectively, individually and with my co-workers.”
