What is SEDTalks!?
SEDTalks! is an educational and skills-building training and workshop series for graduate students in McGill's Faculty of Engineering.
SEDTalks! provides support to graduate students at all skill levels working on sustainability-related research so that they may develop valuable professional skills in public-speaking, communicating sustainability science and engineering to a wider audience, expanding their academic and industrial networks, and working with researchers to further advance sustainable engineering and design in one of these three areas:
- Sustainable Industrial Processes & Manufacturing
- Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency
- Sustainable Urban Infrastructure & Transportation
- Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience
At the end of Phase II, selected candidates - ChangeMakers - prepare to deliver a presentation of their research. Hosted by TISED in March, the SEDTalks event features invited event guests include industry professionals, researchers, faculty members, alumni, and donors.
