Sustainability in Engineering at McGill (SEAM), is a committee within the Engineering Undergraduate Society (EUS). The committee was formally founded in 2014. SEAM's purpose is to foster and promote a culture of sustainability in the Engineering community.
SEAM's main efforts are planning events, managing projects, providing consulting work, and compiling and providing sustainability resources to the McGill Engineering community.
Events 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.
Design Team Case Competition
In Fall 2016, we challenged McGill's Engineering Design Teams to make a change in their products or processes to improve their long-term effects on the planet. We wanted their sustainable solutions to be implementable, measurable, and specific to an issue with which the team members identified. It was a grand success, and we were happy to award M3DP with prize money to implement their RecycleBot!
Projects & Consulting
SEAM undertakes independent or partnered projects which directly affect the engineering community. A recent undertaking within SEAM has been working with other organizations and teams to make their operations more sustainable.

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.
