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.

Global temperatures between 1998 and 2013 indicate a slowdown in global warming, but this was due to natural cooling fluctuation and not due to any decrease in greenhouse gas emissions. This has been proved by statistical analysis of the temperatures, conducted by McGill University physics professor Shaun Lovejoy.

Each year TISED and the lnstitut de l’énergie Trottier (IET) take turns hosting this event. Made possible through the generous support of Dr. Lorne Trottier, this is a forum for students, professors, government and industry professionals to connect with the general public on advancements for sustainability through engineering and design.
|TISED members are tenured or tenure-track professors in McGill's Faculty of Engineering who share TISED’s vision for a critical role for engineering and design in integrated approaches towards achieving greater sustainability in our environment, economy and society.|
