About Us

TISED is an innovative think tank propelling forward new ideas in sustainable engineering and design. TISED creates forums and encourages discourse on how manufacturing, transportation, information technology, architecture, and urban planning can be greener and more efficient.

Graduate fellowships

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.

Total E&P Distinguished Visitor Speaker Series

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:

Undergraduate scholarships

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.

Internships

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).

Activities

TISED aims to inform public opinion on sustainability issues in engineering, design, and urban planning. Using diverse methods, outreach programs and activities, we strive to enhance public policy. We'll bring the public, policy-makers, and universities together in an annual public symposium in collaboration with Polytechnique Montréal, focusing on the importance of sustainable engineering and design in the sectors that shape our world.

Home

Welcome to the Trottier Institute for Sustainability in Engineering and Design (TISED) within the Faculty of Engineering at McGill University. TISED promotes bold and green ideas through education, outreach, and research, where we aim to connect our institution with the public for a greater understanding and appreciation of sustainability issues in our society. 

Sustainability challenges that society faces are immense.
