The mission of the Institut de l'énergie Trottier is to train a new generation of engineers, scientists and innovators who have a systemic understanding of the issues surrounding the future of energy and of the technologies available to tackle the challenges society will face in the coming decades. The Institute promotes the search for solutions to help secure the future of energy in Québec, Canada and the world, as well as awareness-raising and public information about these issues.
One of our key partners is the Institut de l'énergie Trottier (IET) at Polytechnique Montréal. Collaboration between our two institutes will include an annual public symposium that will focus attention on the relevance of sustainable engineering and design to people’s lives. The symposium’s themes will be determined by McGill Engineering one year and École Polytechnique the next. The venue for the event will also alternate between our two campuses.
