Made possible through a generous donation by Total E&P Canada, one of our most high-profile activities is a distinguished visiting speaker series that is open to academics, students, the public, government representatives and McGill’s industry partners. These prestigious and well-publicized events are tailored to attract experts in our thematic areas. The insights these speakers share and the discussions they generate will help to advance new sustainability initiatives and position McGill as a leader in this field.
Past speakers include:

Key modifications urged for Québec energy policy
Subhasis Ghoshal, Civil Engineering and Applied Mechanics Professor, is the newly appointed Director of the Trottier Institute for Sustainability in Engineering and Design (TISED). A William Dawson Scholar and respected authority on the fate and transport of pollutants in aqueous and soil environments, Professor Ghoshal joined McGill after completing his Ph.D. at Carnegie Mellon University and a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.
" In recent months, the engineering profession in Quebec has been disparaged. It is vital that the hard-won title of “engineer” regain its honour — because beyond the controversies, the fact remains that excellence in engineering is one of Montreal’s greatest strengths." Full Story
