Showcase Projects

Visit projects below to learn more about current and future sustainable practices as well as the research that fosters those practices. We'll feature McGill Faculty of Engineering initiatives here that represent our mandate and that help people understand and appreciate science and technology in new ways.

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.
