Visit by Bangladesh’s ambassador

Bangladesh’s ambassador to Norway, Sweden and Finland, Mr. Nazmul Islam, visited the department today together with Bangladesh’s consul in Trondheim, Mr. Håkon Knudsen, and our former student Dr. Aminul Islam, now in Equinor. The purpose of the visit was to discuss the possibilities of establishing a collaboration between BUET in Bangladesh and NTNU, with the goal of building up petroleum education there. We have previously worked with BUET, led by Pål Skalle, and funded by NORAD through the NOMA program. From the department Alexey Pavlov, Sigve Hovda, Knut Backe and Jon Kleppe participated.
