Annual Trottier Symposium on Sustainable Engineering, Energy and Design
Each year the Trottier Institute for Sustainability in Engineering and Design (TISED) at McGill University and the Institut de l’énergie Trottier (IET) at Polytechnique Montréal take turns hosting this event. Made possible through the generous support of Dr. Lorne Trottier, this is a forum for students, professors, government, and industry professionals to connect with the general public on advancements for sustainability through engineering and design. This series has been made possible by the generous gift from the Trottier Family Foundation
