Student Award of Merit

The winner of the third Student Award of Merit, Jérémy Brouillard, studies automated manufacturing engineering at the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS).
 
Since beginning his studies, Jérémy Brouillard has discovered a true passion for rugby, a sport he only started playing in 2012. Thanks to his great determination, he quickly improved and did more than just earn a spot on the ETS rugby team; he was elected its president in 2013. He then recruited players and coaches, found funding, organized meetings…His efforts yielded results, since his team was accepted into the university championships and made it to the semifinals!
