Students from all walks of life and all areas of the globe attend IYRS to develop or enhance skills that are applicable in a wide variety of industries. Every year, students travel from countries as close as Canada and as far away as Italy, France, Germany, Japan, South Korea, and England.

Why IYRS for International Students?



It is quickly becoming evident that Rhode Island is a hub of skilled innovators, makers and thinkers.


IYRS caps the amount of students in each program to ensure each student receives a personalized education experience.


IYRS has become well-known amongst leading employers all over the globe due to the stellar reputations and success of IYRS graduates.


We have the only two-year boatbuilding program in the area, as well as 6-month programs in Marine Systems or Composites Technology, and finally our 9-month program in Digital Modeling & Fabrication.


Students are admitted to IYRS not because of their extensive background and experiences, but because they show a desire to enhance their skills and ability to work with their hands.
