The Student union of engineering at Luleå university of technology award for the best teacher in 2016 was awarded the Olof Martinsson, professor and researcher in ore geology at Luleå University.

"It is a great honor to receive this award, and particularly when it is the students themselves who selects the winner. I'm very interested in the subject I teach, and also trying to help others discovering how exciting it is to geology. To then be named Teacher of the Year feels like it might have succeeded in that task", says Olof Martinsson.
