Sustainability in Engineering at McGill

About

Sustainability in Engineering at McGill
Promoting a culture of sustainability

SEAM, Sustainability in Engineering at McGill, is a committee within the Engineering Undergraduate Society (EUS). We as a committee serve as a supporting platform, fostering and promoting a culture of sustainability within the Faculty of Engineering at McGill.

We do this through four main efforts: events, projects, consulting work and by compiling and providing resources.

Want to learn more? Our general meetings are on Mondays every two weeks. Message us on Facebook to now the exact dates. Hope to see you there!

  • EVENTS

    Events such as our annual speed networking event help to show McGill’s future engineers some of the many opportunities in sustainability, as well to introduce them to thinking and designing in a more sustainable way.

  • PROJECTS

    In addition to our main events, SEAM undertakes independent or partnered projects which directly affect the engineering community. Our most obvious projects are the lovely green plants in the McConnell hallway and the reusable Blue’s Pub cups.

  • CONSULTING

    SEAM has recently begun working with other organizations and teams to make their operations more sustainable.

  • RESOURCES

    We find that many engineering students at McGill are interested in learning more about sustainability, but don't necessarily know where to start. We provide a starting place, by actively gathering information, resources and opportunities and delivering them to the engineering student community via this website and our other networks.
