The US Ambassador to Sweden, Matthew Barzun, visited BTH on 4 November 2010.

The Ambassador met with students from the School of Engineering, including the students from MSLS and MSPI, and talked about the Swedish American Green Alliance (SAGA).
He also discussed various research and education projects with representatives of BTH.
To round off the visit, he then visited the mechanical engineering lab to see a test rig for a project that relates to using power from ocean waves to generate electricity that is done in partnership with Ocean Harvesting Technologies.
