Quanser Global Sustainability Award 2024

To address global challenges such as climate change, biodiversity loss, waste and pollution, the circular economy requires effective systems and solution frameworks. To improve every element of our global technological and economic systems, the engineering community must transform our practices.  

As engineering designers, we need to work together to answer the question: how can we design products that support the principles of sustainability, such as re-use, repair, re-manufacture, and recycling?  

For more than three decades, Quanser has been supporting engineering education. We are proud to partner with the academic community to promote sustainability concepts in the field of engineering education.  

Dozens of students and professors from universities and colleges around the world have participated in the Quanser Global Sustainability Award over the past few years, showcasing promising projects and impressive practical results in a variety of fields.  

Together with the Global Engineering Deans Council (GEDC), and the International Federation of Engineering Education Societies (IFEES), we look forward to continuing to support high-quality education with the Quanser Global Sustainability Awards 2024! 

The Mission:  

The Quanser Global Sustainability Award encourages the development of initiatives that prepare students to discover and develop sustainable engineering methods throughout their careers.
