One of TISED's core activities is facilitating seminars and workshops related to sustainability in engineering and design, with the goal of catalyzing interdisciplinary and inter-institutional research and advancing sustainability policy. Our "Research Workshop Program (RWP)" was launched to promote forums for discussing cutting-edge advances in technology and design as well as policy frameworks and interventions required to advance sustainability.
Made possible by TISED partners and benefactors, we will have a number of faculty scholar awards which recognize, encourage, and catalyze research activities of professors in the Faculty of Engineering at McGill University in sustainable engineering and design. For example:
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. We are working to complement current and planned initiatives to help ensure that sustainable engineering components are present in all undergraduate programs.
