Christopher Gour has been named Norwich University’s Student Engineer of the Year in recognition of his outstanding academic performance and service to his community.
Each year during Engineers Week, Vermont’s governor honors the Professional Engineer of the Year and Student Engineers of the Year from Norwich, the University of Vermont and Vermont Technical College.
Gour was born and raised in Whitby, Ontario, Canada. His lifelong passion to excel at hockey is what brought him to Norwich, and during his time on the men’s varsity hockey team, they have made three consecutive national tournament appearances.
At Norwich, Chris is a mechanical engineering major and a member of Tau Beta Pi, the engineering honor society. He is also active helping tutor students who are having difficulty in engineering courses.
In the future, Chris hopes to pursue a graduate degree in an aerospace-related field, and focus on the environmental impact of aviation. He has been accepted into the graduate program at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies.
