Sustainability

Research Workshop Program

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.

 

Faculty Scholars

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:

Can renewables become the dominant source of electricity in Canada and the USA?

"Rapid innovation and growth in renewable energy", a talk by MIT's Jessika Trancik

Curriculum & Training

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.

Trottier Symposium on Sustainable Engineering, Energy and Design

 

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. The First Annual Symposium was hosted by McGill University in 2014 and the Second Annual Symposium was hosted by Polytechnique Montréal in 2015.

Current TISED Members

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.

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.
