It builds upon the foundation laid by the Institute for Sustainability in Engineering and Design (ISEAD), established in 2010 with the support of another dedicated alumnus, Ram Panda.

Located within McGill University, TISED has grown to offer a range of interdisciplinary courses for students. These courses provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to address sustainability challenges from an engineering and design perspective. The institute also offers numerous funding opportunities to support research initiatives to advance sustainability and promote innovative solutions.
In addition to its academic offerings, TISED hosts various annual symposiums and conferences. These events bring together experts, researchers, and professionals from different disciplines to exchange ideas, share knowledge, and collaborate on sustainability-related issues.

Overall, TISED plays a crucial role in promoting sustainability in engineering and design by providing education, research support, and a platform for collaboration.
