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.
