Industrial Research and the University of Auckland are establishing a joint graduate school in innovative manufacturing and materials.

The school will offer postgraduate degrees in the design and manufacture of advanced materials and the development of innovative manufacturing techniques.

IRL chief executive Shaun Coffey says the school will increase the pool of employment-ready scientists and engineers available to industry and academia.

IRL will also provide support for Chiasma, a student organisation whose goal is to foster connections between science and high-tech businesses.
