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.
