One of TISED's core activities is facilitating seminars and workshops related to sustainability in engineering and design, with the goal of catalyzing interdisciplinary and inter-institutional research and advancing sustainability policy. Our "Research Workshop Program (RWP)" was launched to promote forums for discussing cutting-edge advances in technology and design as well as policy frameworks and interventions required to advance sustainability.
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.
Made possible through a generous donation by Total E&P Canada, one of our most high-profile activities is a distinguished visiting speaker series that is open to academics, students, the public, government representatives and McGill’s industry partners. These prestigious and well-publicized events are tailored to attract experts in our thematic areas.
TISED supports fourteen in-course Undergraduate Scholarships that are funded through generous donations. The Faculty of Engineering administers these scholarships. If you would like to know more about the scholarships, please see the Undergraduate Scholarships and Awards Calendar in the Internal Scholarships of Faculty of Engineering.
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).
