In conjunction with the 2017 Soirée de l’excellence on Monday, May 8, the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec awarded five engineering students.  Three received a Student Awards of Merit and two received a Fellowship for Excellence in Graduate Studies and a Special Award.

The happy five recipients are:

Fellowship for Excellence in Graduate Studies presented by Gestion Férique
Gabriel Gagnon-Turcotte – doctoral student in electrical engineering at the Université Laval. In his master’s dissertation, he developed algorithms for processing neuronal signals that he will use in his doctoral project; some of the algorithms he developed were included in an international PCT patent application.

Fellowship for Excellence in Graduate Studies – Special Award
Catherine Véronneau – Postgraduate student in Mechanical Engineering at the Université de Sherbrooke. She works part-time as a research assistant at the Chair for Women in Science and Engineering in Quebec and participates in the creation of a didactic package focused on learning technology for elementary and secondary students.
Student Awards of Merit
1st Prize – Presented by Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec
Ibtissam Kaissoumi
