This important organization has given many awards for students and helped support important research for student projects. Established in 2011 by Fondation 3E, these awards recognize the research, planning and design initiatives of students with the purpose of reducing energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in urban development.
TISED supports fourteen in-course Undergraduate Scholarships that are funded through generous donations. The Faculty of Engineering administers these scholarships. If you would like to know more about the scholarships, please see the Undergraduate Scholarships and Awards Calendar in the Internal Scholarships of Faculty of Engineering.
TISED currently supports McGill graduate fellowships that are funded through generous donations, from: TOTAL E&P Canada - the TOTAL ISEAD Fellowship and Howard Stotland and Vivian Miller - the Stotland Family ISEAD Fellowship.
TISED also supports fellowships for research projects related to sustainability. The fellowships, with leveraged funding, are awarded for three years and are administered as part of the McGill Engineering Doctoral Award (MEDA) program by the Faculty of Engineering.
Working with various partners, including IET, TISED will be contribute to policy development by publishing white papers and writing briefs on global sustainability issues and on topics related to federal and provincial sustainability policies.
TISED strives to update the engineering curriculum to train young engineers, architects, and planners, in the principles of energy efficiency, clean energy and sustainability. We'll work with our partners to integrate sustainable engineering and design within undergraduate study and support the development of resources for professors to emphasize environmental concepts and content in their courses, wherever possible.
TISED actively encourages its industrial partners to provide openings for student interns. The initiative forms part of the larger Faculty of Engineering internship program administered by the McGill Engineering Student Centre (MESC). For more information on student internships in industry, visit the MESC website.
TISED will involve many stakeholders in its governance - in consultative and advisory roles as well as management, governance, and direction-setting. More information on our committees, working groups, and volunteer opportunities is forthcoming so keep checking back in with us.
Our thematic priorities include: energy, manufacturing, green information technology, green aviation, urban
transport and urban development.
TISED's mission is to produce innovative engineering and design solutions and intellectual capacity that enables us to protect and nurture Earth and its’ inhabitants to meet the needs of current and future generations.
