TISED currently supports McGill graduate fellowships that are funded through generous donations. 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.
Our 2016-2017 thematic priorities include:
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.
Our overarching goals are:
We educate future engineers, urban planners, and architects by integrating sustainability into undergraduate and graduate courses and programs so that they can be leaders in sustainability in their professions. We design new courses and programs and support student development in their research and academic paths. Planning for a graduate program is also underway whereby we will train future generations of sustainability technical professionals.
