TISED currently supports McGill graduate fellowships that are funded through generous donations. 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.
Our 2015-2016 thematic priorities include:
- Sustainable Infrastructure and Urban Development
- Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency
- Sustainable Industrial Processes and Manufacturing
TISED's mission is to produce innovative engineering and design solutions and intellectual capacity that enables us to protect and nurture Earth and its’ inhabitants to meet the needs of current and future generations.
Our overarching goals are:
TISED aims to inform public opinion on sustainability issues in engineering, design, and urban planning. Through different activities, we strive to enhance public policy, education, and research. We are building our efforts towards educating future engineers, urban planners and architects by integrating sustainability into undergraduate and graduate courses and programs. As well, we support student development in their research and academic paths.
