Roody St-Pierre, a Master’s student in the Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency program at ÉTS, was recently recognized with not one, but two separate scholarships! His first award was the Prix universitaire du Mérite for graduate-level studies from the Fondation de l’Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec , valued at $5,000, followed by a scholarship from Presses de l’Université du Québec in the amount of $4,000.

The Prix universitaire du Mérite from the Fondation de l’Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec was presented to Roody St-Pierre in recognition of the excellence of his academic performance and his community involvement. As for the scholarship from Presses de l’Université du Québec, it was also based on academic excellence, among other factors, including the clear and accessible nature of his Master’s thesis, entitled “Développement de critères de construction pour réaliser des habitations durables adaptées au climat nordique Québécois” (Developing construction criteria for creating sustainable housing adapted to the climate in Northern Québec). His Thesis Director was Professor Daniel Rousse from the Mechanical Engineering Department.
