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.
Working with various partners, including IET, TISED will be contribute to policy development by publishing white papers and writing briefs on global sustainability issues and on topics related to federal and provincial sustainability policies.
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).
Our thematic priorities include: energy, manufacturing, green information technology, green aviation, urban
transport and urban development.
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.
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.
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.
