We want to inform people about current and future sustainable practices as well as the research that fosters those practices. We'll feature projects here that represent our mandate and that help people understand and appreciate science and technology in new ways.
TISED takes a broad, hands-on approach to informing 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 is an innovative think tank type institute bringing forward 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.
