We educate future engineers, urban planners, and architects by offering training opportunities, new courses, integrating sustainability into programs, and enhancing education 'outside the classroom' too! Teaching focuses on effective, practical, cutting-edge theories and strategies, and spans from training tools, workshops, and skills-building, to sharing information relevant to the development of sustainable engineers, architects and planners' career paths. We train current and future generations of sustainability-minded professionals in areas such as sustainability assessment and LCA, benefitting students, professors, and professionals alike. 

Our courses are listed as SEAD courses and are open to upper-level undergraduate and graduate students with departmental or supervisor approval.


TISED works to complement current and planned initiatives to help ensure that sustainable engineering components are present in all undergraduate programs
