There should be more options for electives and I think that Gothenburg University can offer them but more coordination is required between the two universities when dealing with elective courses. » (Yes)
- There were a course in transformers, signals and systems which were supposed to be given for the biotechnology students. But because of the planning and arrangement of courses it was not possible to take this course because of too much trubble with collisions between lectures and not good to study 3 courses at the same time.

- In structural enginnering there should be a seperate course that deals with FE-modelling. The actual software used in structural engineering (commonly used in practice - not research!) deviates quite much from the basic learnt from the courses in Finite element method. There should perhaps also be another course given in quarter 3 (year 1), that is more adapted to the structural engineering department (as the advanced course in Bulding physics and the FEM application course is not relevant for all). I would also prefer that it would be given by Björn Engström. » (Yes)

- The chance to get some practical experience of product development. I think its important to really understand the manufacture and assembly methods used in the industry today. This is thoroughly explained in the litterature but as a student I feel I lack the hands-on understanding of what the problems/benefits of different methods are. Would be nice if chalmers could arrange internships during the summer in possible, relevant, areas related to product development. » (Yes)

- Mer geoteknik/grundläggning. Det måste komma fler kurser så att studenterna har nåt att välja på. Som det är nu så är det två läsperioder där många i klassen inte vet alls vad de vill välja. Det finns väldigt mycket miljökurser men om man hade velat läst det hade man valt ett annat masterprogram. Som tur är har vi lärare som står på vår sida och lyckas "ruska fram" en kurs som vi vill gå och som lärarna tycker behövs. Detta till skillnad mot den programkordinator vi har som inte överhuvudtaget lyssnar på vad "hennes studenter" har att säga och vill ändra på. Hennes inställning är att det spelar ingen roll vad vi läser för kurser eftersom vi i framtiden inte vet vad vi kommer att jobba med!!! Detta är en väldigt konstig inställning för en person med detta jobb, med ansvar för så många studenters utbildning. Otroligt arrogant med tanke på att vi är många som har investerat väldigt mycket tid och pengar i att gå en utbildning som inte riktigt motsvarar förväntningarna de två sista åren. Om man har den inställningen så är det väl onödigt att utbilda sig överhuvudtaget, eller?» (Yes)
- Mixte structures concrete-steel» (Yes)

- The programme fail to connect project management and construction in some extent. Mostly, we study the two subjects seperately. » (Yes)
- there are too little courses running at the same semester. Students should be able to take 6-10 courses in a half year. Modern architecture theory should be added to the master programme. While it would be appreciated to add work experience between the bachelor and master programme to stregthen the students before entering the master programme. To make consistency between students levels.» (Yes)
- Mathematical methods such as operations research and inventory control models» (Yes)
- In Complex systems which is an interdisciplinary trend,It is very important to build a suitable mathematical foundation before going through examples.students use simulational technique while there is no course to teach them how to interpreate the result of programs which use stochastic generators. It is completely nontrivial subject and even in the level of scientists there are some struggles about simulational techniques. so writng a simulational prgram without knowing about mathematical foundation to interpret them does not have educational value. so I would like to have a course on simulations and statistical inference(Mathematical course not in the way that Simulation of complex systems was presented that was nothing at all» (Yes)

- More Courses in graphical interfaces and less methods.» (Yes)
- more challenges in general» (Yes)
- 1. During some courses we"ve had elaborated discussion about information design >> how a presentation poster could and should look like. Theese discussions were very time consuming. Allthough Lena Falkheden was very kind and arranged a very needed lectura about graphic design, it"d been better if we"d had a short course about architectural graphics and maybe also some introduction to basic skills in presentation software as InDesign and Illustrator. 2. There"s been so much focus on sustainability in the program that sometimes the design aspect has got lost... I think it would be benificial for all to integrate a short course/workshop that only considers building/landscape design and esthetics.» (Yes)

- Microarray analysis » (Yes)
- Compulsory solid state physics.» (Yes)
- Overall the program should be much more data driven. I would like to see a course in decision analysis where actual analytical work is applied. A course in game theory and how it applies in evaluation of competitive situations in a market should also be included.» (Yes)
- site management and planning, there are also some courses that seem relevant to my program but belong to another program (international project management) but you cant really take it because you have to choose between a course from another program or one of the selective courses available i.e strategic management. Perhaps a better program scheduling or rearranging of the courses would help. » (Yes)
- "Tribology" and "Fatigue" related applications in automotive design.» (Yes)
- I would like it to be more technical courses that we can learn new things from. The FEM course was almost the same course as the one tought in year 3! And just learning to use femap during a course is not sufficient enough. » (Yes)
- Embedded software related course. SOC architecture.» (Yes)
- Solid cad like catia, pro enginer» (Yes)

- PPU120 - Physical ergonomics» (Yes)
- Maybe some practical ones.» (Yes)
- Network oriented courses. like network architecture» (Yes)
- Applied Electronics and sensors, I have just recently joined an internship for a company that works for NASA and I work for a Mars and a Moonlander project. I have come to realize how very little pratical work I had with electric circuits, sensors and progamming. How to use a PLC, how to use amplifiers, how to use capacitors/inductors, everything like that. It sometimes feels almost shameful going out in the industry, claiming you are an mechatronics engineer, but then most of your knowledge is in control theory that is very rarely applied. More hands on practical work is needed with mechanics/electrical stuff!» (Yes)
- More about statistical control in production.» (Yes)
- Corrosion, it was a oppotunity to choose as an extra course but not possibly according to schedule.» (Yes)

- Think the approach with many elective courses are good» (No)
- all courses are available to choose so i don"t see any meaning with adding more to the program » (No)
- There should be a separate full credit examination for Astrophysics » (No)
- The flexibility of the programme plan allows you to chose courses outside the ones in the programme, so I think it is not necessary to include more courses. » (No)
- There have been a large improvement for next year. There are more recomended courses now.» (No)
- whats a "programme curriculum"?» (No)
- The Courses or subjects are fine but the contents must be revised like the projects and some advance study areas on which research is going on.» (No)
- No need of adding, just make the existing courses better. First of all, the courses and the tasks should already be set when the course starts!» (No)
- All compulsory courses should be in one year. There could be more elective courses to choose from.» (No)
- The programme is good, but the education provided is a bit poor. The academic level has to be increased.» (No)
- If Chalmers had delivered the already promised content that would"ve been a good start.» (No)
- I like the courses, however, the content of some of the courses could be revised considerably.» (No)
- The two I really wanted to go, were in the same semester, so I had to chose one of them. The other courses were less intresting.» (No opinion)
- För många kurser ligger på våren och för få på hösten. En vårtermin går åt till ex-jobb så det vart lite skev fördelning.» (No opinion)
- More co-ordinating between courses! It has been too much overlap.» (No opinion)
- Make the electable courses "material handling" and "lean production" mandatory courses. Maybe move them to the autumn so it is possible to take them both without exceeding 100% study pace.» (No opinion)
- I think it is quite free to choose the courses you wants to take.» (No opinion)

Genomsnitt: 2.5

- Heat and moisture engineering course should be deleted or revised because this course is a basic course all over the world in my major of study and this is sole Chalmers in world that has included that as a mandatory course. In addition, this course can be reserved but as an elective course since some students has already decided about their branch of study in this program before starting their studies as a master student. Therefore, this course can be elective to be chosen by students who are interested in this field or students did not have such a course before. The course Geotechnics is totally repetition for not only swedish student students but also for international students since every student of civil engineering has already had exactly this course in bachelor degree. Therefore, it should be more advanced or be deleted.» (?)
- Computer security and network security have a lot in common and they are very easy too, they could be combined to a single course making room for a new security course. » (?)
- Business law and business marketing and purchasing» (?)
- Kursen "structural systems" känns ganska meningslös att läsa. Innehållet i kursen lär man sig nog ändå när man sedan jobbar på riktigt som konstruktör "heat and moisture engineering" var som en repetition av tidigare kurser i det ämnet» (?)
- Form design, Advanced form design and Theory and methodology» (?)
- IEFS, hela våren borde synkas mer till ett sammanhållet koncept.» (Yes (1 to 2))

- Introduction to electronic system design» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Science of environmental change should be revised. The course is very important and it definitely fits within the programme and it should therefore not be removed from the programme, but it needs to be revised so that the importance of the course is better understood. Some of the course element in 2007 seemed not to belong in the course. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- applied industrial ecology => fewer methods and deeper study environmental management => new teachers, different focus, kindergarden level at class and horrible exam» (Yes (1 to 2))

- Energy System - not good To much of overlap during the spring term.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- International Projects, Building in Society - Because they are not suitable for 50 students. We have had NO feedback at all on the text we"ve produced in these courses. Therefore I"ve learned basically nothing from them.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Vibration control» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Business information system - Too low level » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Some courses are on a too low technical level concidering students from the Z-program. For example the mechatronics course.» (Yes (1 to 2))

- HVAC either make it more focused on new designs or have it as a elective.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- ehealth» (Yes (1 to 2))
- DAT090 was a waste of time. Either the level should be set higher, as to incorporate a more advanced project, or the course should introduce new design methodologies. (Code conventions, testbench design patterns)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Introductory course. But it has already been done» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Mathematical modelling and computational tools (2007)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Service contract management is a very bad optional course, it is the worst i´,ve attended so far...» (Yes (1 to 2))

- Data aqusition and handling in systems biology is only repetition» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Sustainable development and ennergy systems modelling and planning» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The enviromental courses, Material Flow Analysis (in L2 year 1) and Enviromental management (L4 year 1, and "Modelling" (in LP 2 year 1.)Or at least to make them better! I decided to study abroad since the level of the courses was way too low!» (Yes (1 to 2))
- "Introduction to DES" is to simple. Lectures to slow to grasp a bigger picture and see purpose of tools like Supremica.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The HVAC course should be as elective for those who are interested sine it not ver much in line with the other courses. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Introduction to Electronic System Design should be heavily revised. This course was way to easy... the content is good but not suitable for a master programme.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Building in Society. Feels like an introduction for the exchange students to learn how to write in English» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Since many of the courses are so "allround", maybe some courses should be revised and have more focus. For example, Managing operation processes contained alot of previously presented theories and a lot of the questions on the exam could be answered by just common reasoning.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Information Systems for SCM. Interesting subject but the level of the course was too low, it should have been more in-depth in one area for instance ERP-systems with more practical exercises.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- This is not part of the program, but an optional course - Redo the Risk Management and Safety course from the beginning. The course is certainly not of Masters class! » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Information systems for SCM» (Yes (1 to 2))
- as I told the signal processing should be considered as more important course which needs more work and concentrate on it.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The "Form Design Development" courses did not give me anything of value that I felt that I could use. The configuration of the course should be more strict. I felt that it was more like "design whatever you want" now.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The applied mechatronics course should be revised. The course idea is good, but the outcome is not very great. The information given in and about the course is a bit diffuse.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Some of the sustainable courses did repeat a lot if information, instead of making room for technologycourses!» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The course content does not match the examnination of some courses e.g. Environmental management and Environmental Policy Instruments. These should be better synchronized.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The credit for each course should be revised. As some of the course have heavy work, whereas some are little though they have the some credits-7.5.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Biopolymer» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Computer Introduction, Source Coding» (Yes (1 to 2))
- As the program intends to have us do the same thing 2-3 times but in more and more detail, I believe one such level could be removed and replaced by some broadening courses.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The course Environmental Management have the potential of being a very useful course, but in the way it is performed today it shows a really low quality. This problem has been raised by the students more than one time (the course has existed for many years), but the responsible teacher does not seem to be able to listen to the critical opinions.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Course instructors for exercise sessions often don"t know what help students need. Better communication between staff and students definately possible. Solutions to exercises/old exams required since course staff generally don"t have time to help students. Feedback is needed to know that a problem has been solved correctly to be able to move on from that to solve other problems.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Robotteknik» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Some courses have very similar content.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- eHealth and HCI are laughable.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Strategic Environmental Assessment » (Yes (1 to 2))
- The environmental course, should change the layout and the examination "method" » (Yes (1 to 2))
- I think it"s better that the course "Infromation Theory" will be given every year not every 2 year and also "Error Control Coding"» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Global Chemical Sustainability was to basic. It was like taking the environmental course from the bachelor once again.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- environmental system analysis» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Actually the course was fine but it didn"t quite live up the descprition so I was a bit disappointed. The course in question was Autonomous Agents.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The distributed systems courses» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Global Chemical Sustainability. Too easy and too general.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Some parts of the courses overlaps, which should be removed» (Yes (1 to 2))

- Update Computer Security, it doesnt feel up to date.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Software Architecture» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Marine machinery system should be revised» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The course "Bioreactors" should either be seriously changed in its content, or simply removed. It was totally confusing and irrelevant course. Another irrelevant course was "data aquisition and systems biology". The things we learned during the course was already taught during the bachelor"s programme. Most of it was repetition. The irrelevant part was that it didn"t fit in the programme which had goals that did not correspond to it. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- The introductioncourse to the programme seemed to be two courses. They had combined the two introductioncurses two the former programmes Quality Technology Manamgement (QTM) and Production Operation Manamgement (POM). This seemingly without removing anything since both the previous programmes wanted all their content. There is a need for going through the content of the course one more time.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Already discussed with the teachers. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Analytical chemistry, you don"t learn much from having a bunch of people from the industry talking about their companies.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The managing operations processes didn"t teach me anything! Seriously, i got a grade 4 but cannot remember anything that i find useful!» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Vibration Control» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Modelling and problem solving in civil engineering. More of a red line during the course.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Advanced Functional Programming. The course was to advanced and the help was little. In some way you had to learn the course all by your self, with the help of google.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Sometimes the courses get repetitive specially because there is a very small number of main lecturers.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- - "Manufacturing and Supply Chain Planning" is worth one lecture, not one course - idem for "Information Systems for SCM"» (Yes (1 to 2))
- the obligatory courses are not necassary, Data aquistion is a repetition on earlier courses and biopolymers is repetiion for ous that read the biomaterial and tissue engingeering courses. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Modeling and problem solving in civil engineering. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Engineering metals need to be on a higher level.» (Yes (1 to 2))

- IES ang global chemical sustainability» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Statistics and Differential analysis» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Some of the courses like Multimedia and video communications were not related to the program and some courses like Wireless networks were not well organized so they were not helpful!» (Yes (1 to 2))
- but they are not really in the program, just courses that you could choose yourself. But risk management was thw worst course i have ever had at chalmers. It was not at all connected to SCM and the teacher was horrible. Really bad.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Hybrids course, Powertrain mechanics» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Quality of Software Architecture course needs critical evaluation. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Science of environmental change is way to complicated and strives to include too much. The exergy part should not be included in Applied Industrial Ecology, there is simply no rationale at all for this, except to make the exam more difficult. Environmental management should be given by an institution that puts itself in the situation of companies and their reality, not an institution that is inherently negative to business in general. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Information systems for SCM...is the worst curse I have ever take and the elective project in suppy chian » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Discrete Event and Control Optimization» (Yes (1 to 2))
- E-health should be removed» (Yes (1 to 2))
- science of environemantal change needs a good improvment (maybe because is the first course) and some parts of applied industrial ecology course (exergy part does not seem very applied into IE)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Risk Management and Safety» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Natural Product and Medicinal Chemistry» (Yes (1 to 2))
- at DCPM, remove "financial management" or change it!» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Stochastic Optimization Algorithms should be revised and made more analytical» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Program languages gave me nothing. It is better to make that course voluntary.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The course Programming language technology should not be mandatory and it should require the Funtional Programming and Automata Theory courses. Theese two courses would simplify the difficult laborations of Programming language technology. Alternatively the laborations could be made easier, for instance be removing the 4th lab wich covers functional programs.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- dynamics and material mechanics» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Some courses shouldn"t be compulsary, e.g. statistical physics II» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Microsystems technology, and Nanobioscience for information processing These courses are taught in a very basic level. There can be much more practical and Scientific information presented in teaching. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- The advanced algorithms and Discrete optimization could use a revision.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Environmental system analysis, » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Form design development och Form design development, advanced course och Materials selection and design» (Yes (1 to 2))
- AI, the course structure is messy if not completely absent. 1. The course contain 4 overview lectures. If the student had AI already, the lectures are useless. If not they too simple to help. A wikipedia page provide a more rigorous treatment of the subject. 2. The course is completely a self study + project course, this makes me wonder, what is the point of having it as a course. If it"s merely self study + project work, there is no need to have it as a part of the curriculum, one could do this on his own.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Energy System Modeling and Planning is mostly an overlapping course (with Sustainable Development and Energy Futures). Almost nothing new is added. Martes and Linear Programming beeing the exceptions. The other assignments took too long time with very little gain in new knowledge.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Sequence bioinformatics shouldn"t be compulsory for students in systems biology track.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Advanced chemical reaction engineering. The course content is perfect. But its final examination is not reasonable AT ALL!» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Material Selection and Design. The idea of the course is good, but I was very disappointed by the implementation. There were almost no lectures or anything else that you needed to do. Basically you could just sit around and wait for those 7,5 credits to drop into your mailbox.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The data aquisition course basicly takes what we have learned in other courses and gives a basic presentation of it in another packaging» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Economics of Innovation need to be better connected to the programme and need for change of teacher...» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Modelling kursen i LP1 Y4 bör göras om. Miljökursen i LP2 Y4 bör absolut inte ligga som obligatorisk kurs utan bör bytas ut.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Yes, Environmental Management could perhaps be heavily revised if it is revised/removed yet.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Energy Systems Modelling and Planning is a course that I think needs to be better structured. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- systemic design» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Electronic System Design Project » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Some courses are just filled with good to know information and does not qualify as courses at all, they are more suited as seminar courses and does not qualify for an written exam, possible oral, but the nature of these courses are hard to define, yet necessary, so they don"t fall within what"s normal for any Chalmers course.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Material Mechanics.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Software Architecture should not qualify as a master program, neither should the teacher (Sven Arne, he can not speak english)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- EHealth - läraren är bra, men kursen är för smal och föreläsningarna för detaljerad för att kursen skall passa som obligatorisk.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- I think that there should be some considerations about the obligatory courses within the program. A course like Data aq. can be too much repetition for those who read the biotechnology bachelor at Chalmers.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- "Heat and moisture engineering" and "Material Performance"» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Human Centered Design - the course is hard, we don"t know what we are expected to do. The requirements are not clear enough.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The course "Data acquisition and handling in systems biology" was really bad. Most of the material has already been studied in other courses (molekylärbiologisk metodik, molekylär bioteknik)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Digital Control should not be one of the semi-compulsory, but it should remain in the master programme. The first year sustainability course (q1) should not be compulsory for chalmers students with chemical engineering background.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Jag läste Digital control och det visade sig att vi som hade kandidatexamen från kemiteknik på chalmers saknade nödvändiga förkunskaper som övriga hade läst 5-poängskurser i. Det kändes lite knepigt att denna kurs är obligatorisk på vårt program när vi saknar förkunskaper och att detta inte nämnts på något sätt för oss innan vi började kursen.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Perhaps what courses that are required for all students should be revised - some could instead be placed in the different specializations and instead making room for more introductory courses in the different areas, giving studens a more gentle introduction to the possible specializations and enabling them to make more informed choices for the continuation of their studies.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- I would say the main concerns are in the sequence of the courses rather than directly the content. Design methods should be taught first, instead of Graphical interfaces. The latter course should be support during the interaction design project, not an opening course. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- afp: shuld be as hard as you make it, not just palin hard» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Creating New Business. The book was terrible, and so were the lectures.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Environmental management (topic is highly relevant, but choices concerning current structure and teaching staff are strongly questionable)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The course Bioreactors and the course Bioploymers and Biocomposition» (Yes (1 to 2))
- I miss having more Swedish construction law. As it were, I felt like we only had a little because of the internationalisation of the programme. It feels important to learn properly if one is to work in Sweden.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Global chemical sustainability. Väldigt låg nivå. Kändes mest som gammal skåpmat och svår att genomföra på avancerad nivå i en klass där alla har så olika bakgrund inom miljö. Det går få intressanta kurser i den läsperioden. Miljö är oftast inbakat på ett bra sätt i andra kurser.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Revised: Risk Management and Safety, a good course but not enough related to supply chain management» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The course Earth science should be elective and there should not be separate examination for Three parts of Numerical methods, instead of it there should be project. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Real Time Control Systems Robot and Robotics» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Microwave projects should be revised. Peter Linner is not capable to manage the course. Project two is useless. The idea of project 3 is good but it need tighter specifications and a clear time budget.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Realtime controll system, SCM» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Industrial Engineering (almost revised) Modern Manufacturing Process (revised to some extent)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Information System in SCM» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Des f SD in a northen context should be more sharp with its passing critterias. It teaches a lot of good stuff but it is still very unclear what I have learnt. The soutern context course was great untill we got home, then all tutors that we needed for understanding what we did in Tanzania were gone. I didn"t see them for 2 months. I could have done a really good project but I needed some one to ask, so it turned out not so good.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Human Centred Design Design Methods (changed to focus more on the book"s content and less on actually carrying out methods before there"s a clear understanding of why they"re used or why they"re useful)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Science of environmental change was a very bad course..» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Introduction course could be revised. The "Microwave Projects part I" course need to change lecturer to someone who knows more about project management etc. For example take in guest lecturer from Industrial Economy, GU or someone from the industry.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Global Chemical Sustainability - Removed (everyone except the iranians know this from their first year anyway), Waste Management - revised» (Yes (1 to 2))
- active microwave circ. should be more assignment-oriented, the introduction-course could include more stuff, pretty much a rip off of the high freq. tech. course (in bachelor programme)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- radio and microwave engineering» (Yes (1 to 2))
- We have to elect 6 of 8 courses. The course Digital Control shouldn’,t be one of them, since its way over our pre knowledge. We could have one more energy course as one of the 8.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Not a addition but some courses need changes. Like internet technology. It tries to cover lots of topics. But it is impossible, also makes the course very difficult to pass. it might be divided into two course like socket programming with java and another course like advanced topics in networks. Another course that i would like to change is wireless networks, i am taking that course it is semi-mandatory course in my program but it goes in wireless communication aspect, it should include more software network stuff.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Introduction to Communication Engineering: I think the course book should be changed. The course content looks vague and there seems to be very little correlation between what is taught in class, what is discussed in exercises and finally what is asked in the exams. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Yes, make some more CFD courses available... Like turbulence course !» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The course "Project in Applied Mechanics" has to be revised substantially. The method the course is given can not be lead into the goals at the end of the period. The course is more to simulate the working environment and group work experience for students and let them know how to deal with a new project for which at the beginning enough information is not available. Obviously such a project can not be finalized in 7-8 weeks even by new engineers specifically if they want to stick to their honesty and not report some fake or wrong results. As a student you would always be confused by the essence of the course to be only a course or a project work according to the way the teacher provide the students with information. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Some of the courses are not hard enough for being master courses, freight transport for example. More like a bachelor course.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- more content in HRSV» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Risk Management and Safety» (Yes (1 to 2))
- systemic design» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Material selection and design could be an interesting course but i think the execution of the course is not good at all.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Physical computing» (Yes (1 to 2))
- TEK155 had very uninteresting lectures adding no value to the course » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Materials for lightweight design is far too easy for a master level but maybe too difficult for a bachelor"s degree» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Heat and moisture. The structure of the course have to better» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Complex Systems Seminar should be removed in favour of some other course» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Environmental Management should be removed» (Yes (1 to 2))
- experimental design,and global chemical sustainability» (Yes (1 to 2))
- 1. Building Acoustics and Community Noise. 2. Human Response to Sound and Vibration» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Financial Management and International Projects. The reading lists were minimal and basic, the lectures provided by Phil were ill-prepared, repeated previously studied material and generally useless, and the assessment provided no basis for learning. The courses both stated in the assessments that their aim was to develop students" research skills, as far as I know this was not the aim of the courses. These courses were a complete waste of my time. I would like to mention that the guest lecturers in FM were good. After checking the course material for IP I realised it would probably be as bad as FM so I did not go to many lectures. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- More structure needed in the RDM course. Tasks were to vague.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- "Bioreactors - design and control" - too many projects in combination with the exam. "Tissue Engineering I and II" - the demands on the students that are accepted to the course should be higher, so that everyone have the suitable background.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- system biology» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Antenna engineering (must contain hardware project(s) or simulation work with special emphasis on designing)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Digitial Control because it seems to be unrelated to chemical engineer. (ie. should be placed in the Systems, Control and Mechatronics program).» (Yes (1 to 2))
- courses that are given by Sven-Arne should be revised or have another lecturer and course director. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- I would suggest to remove the course "Radio and microwave engineering" as an obligatory course for two reasons: 1. It seems irrelevant for people who do not have a strong interest in receivers. 2. People with a physics background often have difficulties follwing the course.You need a strong electronics background. To keep the technological profile of the program I suggest to replace it by "Radioastronomical techniques and interferometry" which is useful for all three tracks. This course provides a more overall understanding of radio receivers while the Radio & micro-course gives a more detailed view. Then you are also able to skip the radio receiver part in "Space science and techniques".» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Design process... But the problem is more the teacher» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Material performance and Heat & Moisture» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The course Sustainable power production and transportation is to easy to be classified as an advance course. The assignments and laborations are okej but the exam are way to easy. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Sustainable Power Production and Transportation» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Building in Society. In other courses, consider how many students that are admitted, keep a good quality! Sometimes there are more students than what is planned for, which lowers the quality.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- road vehicle aerodynamics, passive safety» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Energy systems modelling and planning Sustainable development» (Yes (1 to 2))
- automation eftersom vi läst samma kurs på grundnivå, gör den djupare och smalare.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Seems strange that many of the courses give about the same info/knowledge as the introweek it had during the first course. IE. its just facts, no real learning or analyzing. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Global chemical sustainability - alldeles för låg nivå och fruktansvärd besvikelse på innehållet i kursen» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Product Planning and Market Analysis, separate this course from the product dvelopment project» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Waste management: the course lacked the structure. Gave just a very rough overview on topics that were already obvious. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Energy Systems Modelling and Planning» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Move the Production project work to year 2 so that it is possible to take Robotics and Logistics. All three of them are very good courses and would have been nice to read.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The administration of the theory and methodology course has been really poor. We took the course in the first study period but everybody in the class have not received their grades yet. All of our assignments have not been returned either. This is not acceptable. The content of the Material Selection course is not enough to fill 7,5 hp. The course seemed like a joke and the lecturer seemed lazy. It was good in a way to get more time to work on the other course that was more demanding and more fun, but much of the Material selection course seemed lika a waste of time.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- I would drop the "Individual Preparation Course" (and maybee replace it with an elective course from another program....)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Vibration control» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Project in 4th quarter is bullshit nothing to learn and just wasting the time. even the coordinator or other guys don"t know what they want.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Energy systems modelling and planing should not be compulsary. The course focus too much of things that is already taken care of in previous compulsary courses. If they change the entire course so that it is a continuing course which learns NEW things and focus on things in modelling (like what do one have to think about specificly when modelling someting, how does the reality in the 3rd world look like in comparishon to the modell and the economical limits in the program.) then it can be a good course. IF the course should stay compulsary, then the pre-requirements should be much higher, so that we can go through new things not focusing on old suff from previous courses. (inviting a prof. in district heating systems to talk about the basics in district heating is both a waste of time for him as for people in MPSES. More advanced teaching!)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- There should be more tutorial discussions. Also there are some teachers who do not have the teaching ability.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- DAT090(the intro course) was a horrid experience. Should have been much better in introducing the subject and get the student better understand how to design and write proper VHDL and testbenches.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- [MVE135 Random processes with applications] This course is highly required. However it"s hard to study and understand at the 1st semester. The reason and suggestion are that the lecturer has quite exclusive atmosphere, and lean to ones favorite student. It would be nice if there is more open question sysmte. Also, we need guideline how to study at Chalmers generally from Chalmers. [SSY145 Wireless networks] This course is required, but can be improved much more. The course is not prepared well yet and not competitive comparing with similar course in other University world wide. It would be nice if the lecture contents, purpose, goal and focus are prepare well in advance. Also lecturer Ph.D. student is not motivated well due to busy days. The program worth thinking improvement for this course.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The microwave project courses need to change the staff to preferably two specialists in group management/ Wireless engineering and greatly increase the degree of seriosity. The projects should be well structured and thought through in advance.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The course Diagnostic imaging is not proper as a mandatory corse without revise it. It is way to focused at complicated algorithms and therefore feels like it belongs more to the signal processing track within the master programme. The level was too complicated and the content felt so spread out. I think this course has to be a bit refocused to fit as a mandatory course. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Research design and methods course» (Yes (1 to 2))
- To much product developement» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The theory part of FEM course seems to be too much. Having a deeper knowledge about the use of the software or learning an additional software would have been better.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Industrial Engineering needs to be revised, and production logistics is to basic if you already have studied a logistics course» (Yes (1 to 2))
- We are taken many courses which contain a lot of things we havee already read. I would prefer if the program focuses on new knowledge instead of repeating old. Like for example the course: Data aquisition in systems biology and bioreactors- design and control. In fact, the mandatory courses in my program have not been so good and appreciated by many people. It would be better to make them electible.» (Yes (1 to 2))

- Kursen tilldsammans med arkitekterna i lp 3 första året på masterprogrammet» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Första kursen GCS har ett litet tråkigt upplägg. Det beror egentligen inte på kursen själv utan på att de grupparbeten som utförs. Man blandas runt och tyvärr fick jag erfara att många utbytesstudenter inte kunde jbba med sådana projekt. De copypastade massor från internet och vi andra fick skriva om samt att det tärde på psyket att försöka lära upp utbytesstudenterna. De borde läras centralt med någon form av introduktionskurs hur man studerar i Sverige. Jag vill inte att andra ska behöva känna den psykiska påfrestningen som jag fick känna under projektets gång. Alternativet är att utbytesstudenterna som copypastar inte får studera mera (samma regler som svenska studenter) men det hade vart väldigt tråkigt. Jag tycker som sagt att någon form av semiobligatoriskt introduktion för mastersutbytesstudenter behövs!! Såklart får det vara på individuell basis eftersom olika utbytesstudenter har olika erfarenhet av projektarbete.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- architectural transformation and conservation» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Six sigma black belt course. Seminar days were to long and to little emphasis on mini tab. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- For example the six sigma course» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Freight Transport System It maybe better to focus on how they work in reality, not the theory. For the sandvik case, it"s very time demanding and we do not have enough information to solve the case.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- data conversion techniques....i feel not much important to mincro-electronic » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Material Mechanics is an important course but needs revising. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Research Design and Methods. Changed to one period instead of two, or if possible removed entirely.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The building acoustics course can be changed in a way that it is more applicable.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- User-centered design was probably the worst course I"ve ever taken. Mostly due to the teacher"s lack of ability to organize and inform.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- the course Introduction to Communication Engineering takes many hours and is very demanding for and introductory course» (Yes (1 to 2))
- MEI seminar course should inclusion of group presentation of the seminar paper written by studnets and perhap be subject to critical review in class. The structure of Research methtods and design should be reconsidered to ensure fair distribution of the course work duirng the two quarters» (Yes (1 to 2))
- digital control system. and put more courses regarding energy system.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Heat and moisture and material performance could be combined into one course. A lot of the topics have already been handles during the basic programme.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Remove FEM - basics and Structural systems as mandatory courses, since they do not contribute in the area of Building Performance Design, they are only for structural engineering students.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The course in Heat and Moisture Enginnering must be removed as it is performed today, if not for the waste of money and credits at least for the reputation of the department. However the subject is relevant for both branches of the master programme. Although I am sceptical regarding the institutions ability to even revise and change the course. As it is given today it does not contribute much to further understanding in the subject, especially not for those who are more leaning towards the structural engineering branch. The contents of the course might be relevant, the change need to be made in the teaching performance but also the course literature. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- The couse Heat and moisture was the worst course I"ve read at chalmers. Both content and administration was real bad. A large part of the master courses is just repetition for the swedish students, especially Material performance, Heat and moisture and Building physics-advanced. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Distribution Networks and Information Systems for SCM should be heavily revised. The topics are important as such, but I don"t think that the responsible examiners did a good job giving the courses. As the courses were given, I consider them a waste of time and I was really disappointed with them.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Passive Safety från 2007 om den är som då.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Advanced Topics in Networks and Distributed had good potential but carried out poorly. The quality of the topics and their difficulty varied a lot, and the exam was a really bad summary of it all with most focus on the examiners own topic (which did not fit very well at all). The Wireless Networks course is not adapted very good to students from our programme. Teachers expect previous knowledge in communications which is not stated in the course plan.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- you must have to remove digital control or it must be taught by a teacher who has chemical engineering background. its a compulsory subject so you must have to pay attention ti improve this » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Diagnostic Imaging, intersting course but the work load is not balanced. No. of lectures is too high, assistance with the labs is not so adequate, fresh lecturers are hard to understand...» (Yes (1 to 2))

- revise the first introduction course» (Yes (1 to 2))
- "Product Planning and Market Analysis" (PPU085). The course should be renamed to only "Market Analysis"» (Yes (1 to 2))
- EDA397 Agile development processes I think it is a good subject and valuable knowledge. But the course felt like a joke. When a lecturer states that everything written about a subject is wrong and that he knows best you start to wonder, and when this doesn"t just happens once but several times during the course you start to question the real value of what is thought.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Lars Bengtssons courses» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Modern manufacturing processes Not interesting for the systems and management track.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Material selection for design was the only course available as a technical course, and it didn"t give me anything. This course is according to me NOT at advanced level.» (Yes (1 to 2))

- economic of innovations research design and methods» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Research methods and design was just not very good. Lectures were less than you would wish for. The book was way to thick for that kind of subject. The important thing is that we understand the principles, not 600 pages of details. But the topic is interesting.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Organizational management and Financial management/improved with better reading material and more structured classes» (Yes (1 to 2))
- In general, there should be MUCH more case based learning. Today you typically spend 5 weeks on one case per course, mostly writing, and the grade is mostly based on the paper. However, in corporate life, presentations are much more important, therefore, it is better to have e.g. 1 case per week during five weeks of each course, with heavy focus on the presentation. That means less writing, more information gathering, more analytical thinking, and more practice giving and designing presentations. Presenting more often exposes you to questions about the case, questions which one must learn to be prepared for before the presentation. Only doing one case per course means a lot of time is spent on writing whereas the most important skill (in the corporate world) is learning how to communicate the message and tackle tricky questions. When most students go on to a career in companies and not the academic world, it is questionable why such focus is placed on writing.» (Yes (1 to 2))

- Programming Paradign has a very very exellent teacher but the work load and course content are very intensive.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- I had trouble with finding the red thread in "Simulation of Complex systems". It was good to be able to apply what you just studied in Nerual Networks and Evolutionary Computation but as a single course it was a bit confusing.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- the course material selection and design is recommended but was the worst course I have taken at Chalmers. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Unix internals,the teacher is not able to deliver any knowledge it can be done as self study and save his time and efforts.» (Yes (1 to 2))

- Data aguisition and handling in system biology» (Yes (1 to 2))
- introduction of automotive engineering as the first course at the beginning of this master programme, it makes a little bit heavier on workload since it includes so many knowledges in so many automotive areas such as aerodynamics, passive safety, active safety, etc.» (Yes (1 to 2))

- advanced design materials » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Passive safety, Hybrid Vehicles and Controls» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Applied Mechatronics and Real time control.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Hardware Description and Verification (DAT956) : this course is very important for us as the hardware designers, but the lecturer this year (Mr. Thomas Hallgren) is not as good as I expected! Almost students in class thought so, too. Need to change next year!» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The human aspect of traffic safety couse(TME105) needs to be improved. As for now there is not enought information in it. Maybe adding some phyhological lectures can help.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Data aquisition and handling in systems biology» (Yes (1 to 2))
- - Logic in CS: It does not help me in my daily work. Every course should to some extent. Neither have I used the contents of this course in a later course. - Models of computation: I didn"t even see a hint of a single application thoughout the whole course, neither did I see an effort to specify any results of what we were doing. Added to that, the teacher was very rude.» (Yes (1 to 2))

- Wave Induced Loads (Completely redone, very poor quality of education) Marine Systems (good material, poorly examined)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- I think the course about sustainable studies and development could be better if it ends to an architectural outcome like design in a sustainable way, even a very small flat! it is better to be more of action than words.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- wireless networks Real time systems» (Yes (1 to 2))
- I think digital control and global chemical sustainability should be volontary courses and not belong to the mandatory ones. global chemical sustainability has a content that is very similar to KMV, KMS and PPH(Process- och produktval ur ett hållbarhetsperspektiv). It could maybe be mandatory for exchange students that have not had this education before.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The introduction course needs to be reworked. (if it hasn"t already)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Information systems for SCM» (Yes (1 to 2))
- MKM135 Semiconductor Circulate and Devise It was the worse course I have ever have in CHALMERS, despite the fact that MKM135 should be one of the very important subjects in our program. In that course just student gave lectures!! so apparently students can not teach themselves well. the examiner just solve the homeworkers, and he expects very heavy and advance problems and materials in homeworkes and final exam!! lots of important phenomena that we need learn in that course. I did not know where find the solutions, lectures, web, Books.... Personally I have very bad memory about that course. I had spend more time than any other course, but in the end I haven"t goten my desire Result. That was the only time in CHALMERS, I felt my right as student is not respected and I did not have any voice, to change the situation. MCC020 Nanobioscience for information processing First of all, this course should not be compulsory for our program. Personally, I think the subject of this course is interesting and can be useful for our program. But, it should be more organized. There were not good connection between lectures and subjects, It would be good to follow the subjects from a good reference book. That would be better to have one lecturer (Zoran) rather than different people from different fields. The engineering and technological aspects should be more emphasized. There should be good literature book for this course. In general, I think successful courses, follow a good reference book, I dont know why in CHALMERS professors do not encourage student to study reference book. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Advanced vehicle dynamics-the worst course I"ve ever taken, not clear what you are supposed to learn, only derivation of equations all through. Why not implementation, suspension evaluation in Adams? etc. Pretty much all of the courses are way to easy, you do not have to attend any of the lectures or exercises and still get a grade 4 or 5, way to easy.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The smaller courses (7,5 cr) could be much more appreciated if they were concentrated to full time a few weeks instead of being spread out parallell to the main studio. It creates unnecessary problems when one has to concentrate on several tasks at the same time. Maybe the smaller courses could be implemented in the large studio so that the same ideas and groundwork from the main project could be applied in those other parts.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- finite element, applied machatronics. good courses but not really suitable for PD.and I think we as pd students weren"t informed about the content of the course very well.just saying that it follows technical route doesn"t really mean anything where you can chose between only two options.» (Yes (1 to 2))

- Make sure that SCM-course is the only one that makes som summary of the first three years at Economics and management of Technology. Today, many more courses repeat information. The IS-course was a catastrophy as we all know. The MSCP-course was neither any good structure, since all detailed information was difficult to understand the purpose with. Today this masterprogramme seems to have focus to bring something to students who doesn"t have a bachelor from Economics and management of technology at Chalmers. Too bad!» (Yes (1 to 2))

- Advanced classical mechanics could have been better, for instance more and better exercise sessions. QFT was pretty hard and since it is such an important course, it could have got more attention and room in the programme I feel.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Revise the Risk Management course» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Digital control, instead of selecting I was taking this out of my courses and felt more limited. There were many interesting courses to chose from in one period and it made it difficult to chose, while in other periods there wasn"t much choice.» (Yes (1 to 2))

- DAT110 Methods for electronic system design and verification It is hard to understand what you are doing in the labs and there is no explination just some steps to follow.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Semiconductor materials physics should be revised, the way the lecturer takes the course is not motivating at all, it is such an interesting and fundamental area for nanoscience that its a pitty it turned out to be a boring and disapointing course.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Information systems for SCM - remove this course. It is not feasible that we should take almost the same course as during the bachelor. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Algorithms is difficult and should be made an optional course rather than a compulsory one.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Vibration control and the project course» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Heat and Moisture» (Yes (1 to 2))

- Sustainable power production and transportation. It"s way too easy for this master programme.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Nanobiosciences for information processing» (Yes (1 to 2))
- CAD needs to be heavily revised. Put in small exercises or get to know exercises from other softwares» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Production project work and the Automation course» (Yes (1 to 2))
- From the biomaterials track point of view, we should have less courses of the BMEMP and more of the biotechnology MP» (Yes (1 to 2))
- PLM course should be revised heavily.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Logic in computer science» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Antenna Engineering course, i think it needs revision. there should be some projects in this course. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Mathematical Modelling Large Scale Genomics.. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- I think Molecular Electronics needs better structure and course material.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Managing Development Projects should be removed. It has a completely social sciences perspective and it is not relevant to the engineering background that students have. Research Design and Methods should also be removed. It has no relevance whatsoever unless you are seriously considering doing a PhD, which a very small minority does have.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- environmental management should be removed, it doesn"t provide any input about environmental considerations taken in the construction sector i.e energy efficiency, material choice, what materials to recycle and how,or indoor climate. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Some of the courses from the Industrial Economy institution, I think there are to many of those...» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Too many safety courses!!! Automotive Engineering is not purely related to vehicle safety!» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Advanced design materials is not a good course. I have almost not learned anything at all! Change the CAD course!» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Material selection and design, you dont learn alot during this course mainly to do with bad teaching.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Courses overlap which is good but they tend to repeat the same things. And in the late spring it feels like there is no more new content in the courses. Can also be seen from the schedule which has less lessons (= less learning). And the schedule for next autumn looks like this trend of repeating the same old again is continueing.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- information systems for SCM- a catastropfy! take it away!» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The marketing course should be more detailed in the project. It is hard to grasp the different concepts fully. Total quality management should look over the cource-PM (allot of missinformation)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Source Coding» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Distributed systems with Sven Arne AND THE WORST ONE: Multimedia and video communication. A total disgrace for chalmers. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Introduction to microwave and photonics engineering» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Functional material as a choise because it was hard to understand when you have not read advanced level on physics.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The goals of real time control systems should be more specific Nonlinear and adaptive control is too much for 8 weeks and should be separated into 2 courses. The course quality was not so good and some topics were oversimplified to be able to finish the materials in 8 weeks.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- MTS, Nanotechnology for chemists» (Yes (1 to 2))
- IT for SCM Material and supply chain management Distrbution networks They are either irrelevant or already dealing with stuff we have read at I.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- modern manufacturing processes ...» (Yes (3 to 4))
- content in Project management, MOCI, law chapter in Contract relationship, Building in society» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Internet Technology, Distributed Systems I & II: Lectures & slides are just a copy and paste from the book (fortunately for DS2 labs are very good).» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Remove the System Development in Teams course, a copy and paste course. Felt like the teacher wanted something easy. Rework the Programming Paradigms, John Huges are WAY to detailed on his functional programming for anyone new to the subject getting more out of it than a strong hate for the programming style Software Architecture fire that so-called teacher like NOW? Jesus he can"t even stick to the subject for 5 minutes before he turns the lecture in to a self-biography» (Yes (3 to 4))
- DECA, IDEC, applied mechatronics,» (Yes (3 to 4))
- The DECO course did not give much. It could be removed. Applied meachtronics should be revised, the focus was totally on screw nuts and DC motors, the focus should be on the system as a whole. Real time control systems should be revised, the purpose of the cuorse was good but the content was very sctterd. The SCM course was to vague, the goal was not clear and the problem to solve was to hard.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Microwave projects I and II Introduction to Photonics Engineering» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Image Analysis is too close to diagnostic imaging, eHealth: I really like the amount of guestlectures at Chalmers but ONLY is too much. Bioelectromagnetics: In principle a very interesting topic but that does not reach us as students. Nice practical examples but could be more. Microwave Tomography: Slides too bad, only formulas no one got a thing there» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Programming paradigms. The part with functional programming was far too advanced as most had never used a functional programming language. Software Development in Teams should be removed. I only learned how to copy and paste from existing documents. Software Architecture should use existing software to demonstrate principles instead of having the students develop from scratch.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Management of Architectural and Construction Firms Buildings in Society » (Yes (3 to 4))
- The astrophysics and earth science should be split into two courses - they are not related at all. I think that it would be better to let students choose between a 7.5hp course in astrophysics or a 7,5hp course in earth science. The spectroscopy and electromagnetic waves course should also be split apart - maybe the spectroscopy could be put together with the astrophysics. The waves part must be revised - when I took the course we had ~8 lecturers in ~10 lectures, the course didn"t have any clear path at all. The geodesy part of the radio astronomy course might also be separated from this course - most students taking the course are only interested in the astrophysical sense of radio astronomy, not the geodetical. The relativistic astrophysics demand previous knowledge that we have had no chance of gaining before the course. According to the teacher, the Gravitation and Cosmology should be held before.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Advanced CAD (shift from Geometric modeling to parametrization, programming and simulation) Product planning and market analysis (revised) Product Lifecycle management (lab revised)» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Det är väldigt många kurser inom masterpogrammet bioteknik med inriktning mot biomedicin som tar upp exakt samma saker som under kandidatexamen. Detta blir extra tydlilgt då GU elever utan kunskap om cellen etc läser denna kurs. Hade gärna sett mer fördjupning och mindre grundläggande i kurserna.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- -Data acqusistion and systems biology. -Reduce the amount of mandataory courses.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Same as above» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Ta bort miljökurserna. Vill man läsa sådant väljer man ju ett environmental-masterprogram.!» (Yes (3 to 4))
- All the mandatory courses, namely: -data aquisition: Most of the material is already familiar for former Chalmers students. Make it more useful for us! Mathematical modelling could be interesting. -biopolymers: The course is okay but it doesn"t seem relevant for us in the medicin track. It should not be mandatory. -Bioreactors: Swedish students must fulfill the following requirements: Have taken a basic course in Applied microbiology, Bioreaction engineering, Bioprocess technology, Chemical reaction engineering, or similar, and a basic biochemistry course. However, many of the non-Swedish students have never studied neither bioreactor engineering nor mathematics and I can"t understand why the same rules are not used for them. In the group exercises, these students are not to any help, instead my group mate has to have everything explained for him (even derivatives, matrices). This decreases our possibility to develop our knowledge and it is also very irritating that some students can become better grades (because of group exercise points) without contributions to the group work. Let the prerequisites be the same for all students, then the course will be good!» (Yes (3 to 4))
- ESA» (Yes (3 to 4))
- The information system course should be heavily re-defined to include more applicable information The course in transportation networks also needs redefinition to put more emphasis on the supply chain as a whole and theories regarding that rather than spending time learning about the size of containers and different railway systems» (Yes (3 to 4))
- I think there are to many environmental-courses, Add more Geo and more water and keep the environment courses in the environment master programme» (Yes (3 to 4))
- The IDE methods course. The first of the advanced design courses I took was a disaster both in planning and achievement. Many courses don"t feel like they add very much to what was learned the first three years, but maybe this is due to the basic courses being to in depth.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Distributed systems 1, is a terrible course didn"t learn anything useful. It should be more focus on one area and more up to date with reality. Distributed Systems 2, didn"t learn anything useful in this course either. First it doesn"t really continue where the last course started(which is what you expect from a follow up course). Second it didn"t have any material, I don"t understand who this course even can exist as it is right know, isn"t there any quality control at chalmers? Internet technology, this course isn"t bad, however much of the information in the course is redundant when you are coming from chalmers since all students already red the computer communication course. Make this course more advanced.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Electrical Drive I,High Voltage Engineering (revision), Sustainable Power production (revision)» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Phil Thomas as teacher should be replaced, he is holding 3 courses» (Yes (3 to 4))
- design processes and construction processes and managing organizations in the construction industry» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Goal mentioned in site is Security and reliability of network-based systems. however, language based security, programmign languages and some other courses are not for network security, they are for software developer and application security side» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Market analysis course, should not be mandatory. Advanced design materials, today it has a poor layout, just a bunch of guest lectures and nothing that binds the course together as a whole. I would have wanted this course to be a lot more technical and not so industrial design oriented. » (Yes (3 to 4))
- Quality and Operations Management, Custoer Focused Product Development, for example.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- numerical method - I think this course is nonsense except the wavelet transform parts!» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Skip the introductory part in every course. The first week of every course is always spent on basics we already know.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- foundations for Photonics engineering is totally weak and useless both teacher and course material and has no effect on our future study or career, Microwave project 1 theoretical part is really weak, Antenna engineering needs to be improved to rich our program standards but it is ok.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- The material we study in microwave project1 course is not new. We knew them from the previous courses, the class is boring, but the projects we did are good. I think the antenna course should revised for our program and offered in our department. The class in electrocal department is so crowded. Compare to the foundation for microwave which gave us a deep insight in to microwave,the foundation for photonics course was not useful enough and was not practical. This course does not have a specific goal I think.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Material performace, Heat and moisture and Building Physics should be heavily revised, all of them.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- agile - revised software development in teams - revised software architecture - revised» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Agile Development in Teams, System Development in teams (more indivisualzed attention should be put) and Software Architechture.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Building in society, and Moci and CCR cannot be together is to much work that quarter, and then construction Processes is boring and very bad planned! » (Yes (3 to 4))
- e-health, bioelectromagnetics, image analysis - boring lectures! bad teachers!!!!!!!» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Mathematical Modeling Large-scale Genomics .. the courses gave too broad perspectives, although it"s good to explore this and that stuffs, but we should stay in focus as well» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Science of environmental change: the lectures were not attractive at all, though the content is very important and can be interesting if presented in a more "interactive" way with the students Applied industrial ecology: the projects/assignments are good but not enough, maybe additional smaller exercises/study cases would be required to cover all the tools and methods taugh in the course which are hard to understand if never applied/used by the student Environmental policy instruments: the literature (Thomas Sterner book) was enough, the lectures did not add anything! (but the group project was very good) Environmental management: most of the lecture with guest lecturers were excellent => TO BE KEPT!, but the discussion seminars were not so interesting, no structure in the debates... smaller group debates (or just discussion with classmates outside those seminars) were more productive!» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Keep it more concrete.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Restructure the program so that there will be 4 courses per term ā 7,5 ECTS, thus Introduction could removed the first term, its contents merged into e.g Intercultural communication at 7,5 ECTS, and the other three courses during the first term expanded to 7,5 ECTS each. Risk management could be merged into Quality mananagement with a total of 7,5 ECTS. Research methods could be merged into some of the other courses, maybe part of Human factors during the first term, total 7,5 ECTS. The remaining courses to be expanded to 7,5 ECTS each.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Courses "Hybrid vehicles and Control" and "Modeling and Simulation" should be heavily revised. In general: the courses should be more advanced.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- The design studio, master thesis course and competition course should be heavily revised. Putting students into 3 tracks of design studio is unreasonable in the beginning of the 4th year study while there was no proper briefing session even it was requested many times by students. Levels between and within studios vary in a big extent and it is unreasonable everybody passes the course. The outline of the 3 studios should be heaviliy revised by comparing with the international standards. The financial support to the 3 studios is seriously un-balanced. Master thesis course is messy. The structure is not well organized in advanced. Quality between students work varies in a big extent and a lot of time doesn"t fulfil international standard. The medium of language should be fixed to English if the master programme is supposed to be English. A hugh lack of support for master thesis students from the department in relating and linking up students project with existing relevant companies, NGOs, clients and so on. Competition course is an inflexible course which is a internal play for the students in year. It enclosed and protected the students from broaden their horizon and be competitive internationally. The whole idea is too parental.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- 1-Simulation of complex systems: with current form of presentation this course is nothing more than a game.It can be removed or changed to mathematical techniques for analyzing complex systems I, and then student can write a simulation in addition to written exam for this course. 2-Computational Biology I and II can be recombined together in one cours 3-Dynamical systems in two courses,intermediate and advance 4-compulsory course about stochastic processes given by mathematical department with teacher who can speak english well» (Yes (3 to 4))
- some of the compulsory courses are not interesting and I have seen many students who does not like to take these courses. but they have to do that!» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Developing computer-based systems in teams Software architecture Distributed systems » (Yes (3 to 4))
- Research design methods- honestly giving this course for students the 4th year at Chalmers is the biggest joke EVER. It might be suitable in the first year of a bachelor. Learning of how conducting interviews, doing analyses etc. when we have practiced it for 4 years. Technological change and industrial transformation is on a too high level, it"s very interesting but not at all useful. Managing development project, the course is great but the professor was not able to get me interested. Showing movies with more than once on scheduled time is like being back in ground school again. Do Chalmers actually pay professors for starting a movie and then leaving the class? » (Yes (3 to 4))
- Financial management, International project, Knowledene management» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Research design and Methods, Economic of Innovation, R&D Strategy and Organization (good but too heavy)» (Yes (3 to 4))
- building in society, » (Yes (3 to 4))
- Geotechnics Heat and moisture Material Performance» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Industrial energy systems- Digital control-Global Sustainability» (Yes (3 to 4))
- ACP and QFT should have another examiner/lecturer. Advanced QM should have a more clear focus and "röd tråd". The course in Advanced Advanced Subatomic Physics should have more content, right now it is mostly a reiteration of the first course in subatomic physics.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Data acquisition and handling in systems biology was not good. More of a recapulation of what we had done before. I need to be organized much better, and there has to be different tracks. within the course so that all 3 tracks within the biotechnology program feels that the course is applicable to them. "Bioreactors - design and control" could also have clearer focus and the different parts of the course could be connected in a more obvious way. » (Yes (3 to 4))
- The courses are not useless, but needs to be revised.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- the courses from the institution of building physics and materials in general and the course haet and moisture should be removed» (Yes (3 to 4))
- I am not satisfied with any of the courses i"ve taken on the master level, except the ide project course. I don"t feel like I"ve learned anything, or at least anything that I will make use of. I feel the need for a more academically challenging education, right now it is too easy to just slip through without learning anything. It should be easier to take courses at other master programs, like coordinating schedules with blocks so that not all courses clash at one point. If the week would be divided in say 5 blocks, teachers would book a block of times for lectures, and then at least the courses recommended by programs to take wouldn"t be impossible to take. » (Yes more than 5)
- I do not understand why we have so many elective courses that are dealing with environmntal issuses. If you want to specialise in envionmenatl issues, you choose the master programme Environmental measurements and assessments!» (Yes more than 5)
- 1.Building in society is useless and it"s not clear why it should be compulsory. 2.International projects is a waste of time and has nothing to offer. 3.Leadership and communication is run by a teacher with linguistic background instead of someone who has enough experience in the subject within construction sector or even a project organization. 4. process in planing and building has a very confusing and crowded curriculum for a very simple final project that is an architectural project not a construction project 5. project management does not even fulfill its name and gives nothing regarding the issue beside lack of anything to do with construction projects 6. Managing organizations in the construction industry is run by a researcher who doesn"t have any practical experience of the subject. this course is just a name with a very heavy and busy schedule that teaches nothing in the end.» (Yes more than 5)
- All courses projects that are graded. Although, the course topics and the choice of projects are excellent. This seems to be exploited for one"s own benefits in getting high grades unfairly with copied reports from seniors !!» (Yes more than 5)
- Engineering geology - mindre repetition av ettans kurs och mer nytt. GIS- behöver omarbetas helt. Traffic and urban planning - behöver omarbetas helt (läraren inleder med att "det blir mycket traffic och ingen urban planning", men så blev det inte mycket traffic heller). Environmental risk assessment in engineering -behövs mer inflytande från lärarna från Bygg och miljö, och BETYDLIGT mindre inflytande för Sverker Molander. Behövs fler kurser, vissa perioder finns bara två kurser "att välja på"» (Yes more than 5)
- Again, the quality of pretty much all of the courses are very bad! I actually think its a disgrace to call have these courses on an "Advance Level", what have I acctually learned during this programme?!» (Yes more than 5)
- MCC020 - Should be totally removed. Reason... 1) It is not related to the program 2) The teacher has no idea what he"s talking about 3) Three teacher in this course and none of their lectures has connection to eachother 4) Three teacher talk about three diffrent rute 5) Exam system is confused & complecated » (Yes more than 5)
- Most courses I"ve taken sofar need extensive revising due to old pedalogical content. Above all more induvidual projects and more focus projects, integrated courses. The catalysis course can to some extent be integrated to the CFD course to yield integrational learning patterns and to increase conceptualization of the tasks.» (Yes more than 5)
- distributed systems 1 and 2 » (Yes more than 5)
- I think the students should have enough knowledge about cars when they start this programme so that the introduction course will not be needed. The hybrid course consists of approximatly 5 hours effort to pass the entire course. Advanced vehicle dynamics is all about theory. Rather use Adams and Lotus instead of writing Matlab codes.» (Yes more than 5)
- The placement of the courses are very bad. They should be more spread out!» (Yes more than 5)
- Human Centered Design course, the teacher doesn"t teach at all. » (Yes more than 5)
- Interaction Analysis -- Since I could not get more then Grade-3 after having complete understanding of this course. My attendance to course was 100% and never missed any assignment.» (Yes more than 5)
- internet techology, unix internals need to be rebuilt» (Yes more than 5)
- Not from the first year.» (No)
- There are many courses which need to step up the level though, for example Biological Physics and Fuel Cells.» (No)
- the mandatory courses in my programme was very interesting all of them» (No)
- Of course some courses need inprovement but not "be heavily revised".» (No)
- programs are really intersting and knowlegeale» (No)
- No, the current courses is rather a lower bound of what you should learn.» (No)
- I want to see better options for the second year.» (No)
- but almost all should be much better» (No)
- Core courses are great, comment below regarding elective courses rather than core courses. The Research design and Methods course should be changed to be the first course to study. The information regarding the 50% of elective courses that may not belong to the program is VERY dissatisfying. Jamal, who was in charge of the introduction of these courses, did a very poor job, even going as far as not sending out information he promised to send out regarding courses not represented at the time. The fact not even half the elective courses was presented did sure not help. The courses Idea Evaluation and Feasibility Studies and Service contract management have been VERY poorly handled by their respective teachers. As the real MEI courses hold such a high standard it is a pity students are not warned regarding the decrease in quality. I would have liked to see MEI program recommend certain courses that matches the program well, and which quality is accounted for.» (No)
- It would be a good thing to make the traces more clear, and to give the students an idea of that the goal of each trace is. » (No opinion)
- Some parts has been inquestionable. A graphic design approach (+lecture) at the master level was considered to be late. A workshop, nice but was it realistic? A workshop about entrepreneurship. Research by design must be seen over and connect better to recent conditions. The startup plan part about Strömstad 2007 was too long and I longed to do presentations belonging to the field of architecture and to improve the language of architecture, while visiting that course in sus. dev. We mostly produced posters and thoughts. » (No opinion)
- my suggestion is that the timing is too crowded and it will be ok if you could have one week befor exam i.e. make it a little bit relaxed» (No opinion)
- The way of teaching should be changed not the coure itself.» (No opinion)
- Its hard to say courses should be removed because maybe its not clear for the students of the one branch that these courses are important for the other branch. The thing is that the organizer of the master has to think if the compulsory courses before the students split to the two branches can be in both cases useful for all the students.» (No opinion)
- There must be more electables, as it is know there are too few relevant courses to chose from during 2nd year.» (No opinion)

- The program and its cources itself. Teachers are extremely bad at english. The aministrative personel have lack of competence. I still use Lilian Sandström when questions needs to be answered.» (No)
- I feel that it doesn"t provide enough practical tools. The theory that it is focused on is usually practised by 40-50 to fifty year olds on companies where they have high management status. I whink that the program should contain moore day-to-day tools that can be used when graduating. » (No)
- It is too far from engineering.» (No)
- The level of teaching in the program was not as high as in my undergraduate program. Always on the surface of the theory.» (No)
- Changed areas of interest since the start of the programme.» (No)
- This master program is a joke, and I would try another program at Chalmers if I could and hope that at least there you learn something. Now I"m just staying here to get my papers so at least I can pretend I have a degree in something.» (No)
- It is way to general, I cannot say that it have teached me that much...» (No)
- Because there is no other that are dealing with infrastructure paning and design. engineering and trafic. » (No)
- I have gained interest for other industries and regret studying at a management programs tied to a specific industry. » (No)
- Då innehållet i kurserna överlappar på tok för mycket med kurser som låg som obligatoriska i kandidatexamens. Samt det faktum att det är väldigt forskar inriktat.» (No)
- The program has not given me a clear expertise which I can find jobs with. Too much basic information in too many areas.» (No)
- The quality is very questionable and the courses have misdirected focuses.» (No)
- It"s to easy and has a to little core signals and system courses in it. When I chosed the biomedicalengineering program I thought I would be able to build a CT-scanner after the program was finished. But I think that after finishing an other electric-masterprogram at chalmers I would be much better of.» (No)
- Det är alldeles för få och grunda kurser inom "Väg och vattenbyggnad"-som man trodde att man började på 2005.» (No)
- I would choose aplied mechanics as it is more general and there is no jobs in the AE sector for the moment.» (No)
- Bad teachers(dist syst 1 & 2). Courses need some serious revising. Especially the "select 3 out of 4" needs to be better, make sure they all contain good and useful information and are teached by good teachers since everyone NEEDS to read them and cannot exchange them for other courses.» (No)
- because of Curriculum if u compare the curriculum of Msc networks of Chalmers with Msc networks of other univsiteis in sweden, things will be cleared i.e KTH, Communication System and Network Services » (No)
- it was not exactly conducted as it was mentioned on the program description on the website, it did not well coordinated and it did not satisfy my expectation from a design engineering program in many aspects.» (No)
- My time is better spent elsewhere. Possibly FoCAL.» (No)
- because there is subject relating to practical networking except routing for example there is no course such that traffic analysis,network monitoring, Mpls etc. » (No)
- I will go for fundamental physics program instead. I found that they offer high quality lectures and the contents are compact. Most courses in MPRSS prgram are not up to the one I expected.» (No)
- as i m plan to go back to home country after doing master. and there is no scope of new processes eastablishment.but it helps me to gain knowledge in some techniques by studying some core courses» (No)
- The quality of the programme did not at all meet my expectations.» (No)
- Because the reason is that this course takes in the direction of research but when the time comes to find the thesis not a single person in department help you out and offers thesis.Not the avaialble staff has the capability of teaching rather than they just pass the course with out giving any knowledge to students. We were not expecting this here. Sory to say but International students comes far away from home to study but when you see this that some teachers do not even think what they are doing with the career of the students than its really painful thing. I think at least the core courses teachers must have the capability of delivering the knowledge to students. These are some bitter facts but this is the time to accpet the truth to improve this course. » (No)
- because this program is too much hard as i found so many projects,labs, computer programs. i know its good to have these things but time to appear for examination due to quarter system is very short. so we can not gain so much in this case. i have seen almost all to make a formality to pass the courses rather then going into the depth of the course and it not possible for one to gain such high level of goals in this very short time lkie classes are completed on friday for example and exam will be on monday and only gap of one day you come for next course exam. its really hard.» (No)
- I do not want to work in the automotive industry. (economical situation)» (No)
- Probably i prefered to choose International Project management or Architecture due to my bachelor degree» (No)
- Because it is not related at all to engineering which is my background. It"s only Management.» (No)
- I could study the courses i like, and not the irrelevant courses. » (No)
- my brother who is 17 would be able to finish this programme» (No)
- Because the level of english knowledge to get addmitted to the program must be a real joke! It feels lika a slap in the face, starting your fourth year of university studies by helping/teaching/learning other students in your group work english. Some of the forreign students has e.g. never written a technical report. The large amount of time spent with work related to these issues could definetly been used to deepen my knowledge in the subjects instead. I was also told that, when asking the program director what language the master edducatio will be in, he answeared: - Ous program works very closely with the Swedish construction sector, soo we will used their oppinion in this question. Ok, so WHY is the program in english, when nobody and no company uses english as business language in the swedish constructiion sector!? I can say that if I could turn back time, I would have taken my master studies in some other country at a more serious university. I have e.g. veery good experiences while studying business related subjects at University of Technology in Sydney, at least the techers and student could handle the language.» (No)
- many things are not clear and understandable.» (No)
- Because the market size is far smaller than the admission capacity of the universities. The advertizement for promotion of this master program is definitely exaggerated and I feel decieved and misled. » (No)
- The programme is not for me, defenitely not the right choice.» (No)
- The architecture programme doesn"t match the international standard. I am afraid of the master degree I attained would not be recognized by the professsional institute in my home country.» (No)
- I would prefer another program like Medical Physics that is more intresting to me. I took this program as a challenge and I have almost achieve my target. Although it is a very tough MSc but I somehow managed my level of understanding problem.» (No)
- it is so deep for me and it is not my intrest.» (No)
- the program is good is just personal preference . i would go for more economical studies , rather than computing and technical studies . » (No)
- I haven"t deepen my knowledge, since much is just repetition. I would prefer raising the prerequisites and actually leverage what we have learn during our bachelor. » (No)
- - Because the teachers never have time for the students, there are too many students per teacher in the CS department. It is very frustrating and it makes you feel even more like a burden to the school than as the primary purpose of the whole thing. - Because little of what is taught is applicable in The Real World(tm). - Because the education, compared to other places at Chalmers, is kind of low-level. It is almost as bad that students start complaining if they see a formula. I need a high level to keep my interest up.» (No)
- I don"t feel I"ve learned much more than what I knew before coming! The courses were kind of review on what I"d learned before or even less. » (No)
- There is too little meat in the courses. Don´,t aquire knowledge or skills.» (No)
- I doesn"t match with my previous degree, so hard to learn. Little bit out of my aim study. » (No)
- I would not have read courses that I don not find interesting. Instead I would have "made" my own programme.» (No)
- it was really far from my thought. camparing to other usiversity which offer this program it was very poor» (No)
- First year was just awful and in all practicality non-exsistent. Close to no teaching and at best 4 lectures in 1 year - what do you call that? The last term before diploma was a lot better but somewhat disorganized. First year teacher, Erik Linn had neither enthusiasm or any organization, third term however was quite the opposite. Morten Lund had a lot of both enthusiasm and commitment.» (No)
- The program is way too theoretically focused. More case work should be included. By more case work I do NOT mean the type of cases that are administered now, which is nothing but academic reports. The program should seriously consider bringing in cases from business schools in the US, such as Harvard Business Cases. Any case that is considered to be used in a class should fulfill the criteria of being data drive, i.e. the students should be given a REAL problem to solve using financial and market data, NUMBER CRUNCHING IS A MUST! No decision in real business life is ever made on qualitative arguments...it is completely irrelevant if "this author states this or that author states that"! The write up of these cases should be capped at maximum 3-4 pages where the goal for the students is to show their thinking...not what literature says or how literature can be used! Coupled with these cases an EXTENSIVE use of Microsoft Excel and Powerpoint should be incorporated. The entire business world relies on these programs, we MUST be forced to learn these programs well!» (No)
- Low quality and does not meet my expecttations. More interested in software engineering» (No)
- I had another view of the program before I started. It did not really turn out the way I wanted it to.» (Probably not)
- Because it was just repitiom of the first three years. The elective courses that were interested could be chosen from another programme» (Probably not)
- Because less than half of the teachers I have had during these 2 years have actually been able to get the message out?» (Probably not)
- I would instead try to focus on taking the courses that my fellow students recommend. For instance take the "best" courses from the master programme, Geo and Water and DCPM.» (Probably not)
- The work opportunities seem slim.» (Probably not)
- My bachelor degree is from Electrical and Electronics Engineering and I could not find enough courses related with my bachelor degree. Especially in communication track. » (Probably not)
- Did not wake my interest and motivation. Lectures were more frustrating, either boring or not communicated well. In some courses the motivation could be seen but without effect on the lectures» (Probably not)
- I studied Mechanical Engineering for my bachelor and I feel that the courses are too allround. I loose much of my core competence» (Probably not)
- Because of the lack of information from the programme coordinator and the lack of interesting courses both in spring semester in V4 and in autumn semester V5» (Probably not)
- Not as it is now. » (Probably not)
- Hard to see that much of any practical use was thought, which might lead to problems if one wants to find a job in the field afterwards.» (Probably not)
- This program is far away from what a Construction management program is supposed to be. it seems that those who are responsible for this program has not looked at similar program at other universities in countries such as UK or US that are the biggest markets in the construction industry and have the best construction schools.» (Probably not)
- It doesnt really feel like a masters programme, more like some sort of limbo between bachelor level and graduate level.» (Probably not)
- Was not my first choice when I started and would probably not be next time either» (Probably not)
- Because the course is more statistics and mathematics based then the computer or biology side and it feels that i am being prepared to be a mathematician and being a computer scientist myself i wanted to gain more knowledge in biology which I could not receive as their were clashes with the compulsory courses.» (Probably not)
- As the market has rapidly changed over the last year, I would have been more focused on a Master Program with very good job opportunities. » (Probably not)
- It is far from what it should be considering similar courses around the world. » (Probably not)
- tycker inte det lever upp till de förväntningar som fanns - känns inte alls som en ingenjörsmaster får ingen alls användning av de ingenjörskurser vi läst innan i några projekt» (Probably not)
- It is to wide, I would have wanted it to be more specialized, one or two courses in mechanics and some other calculations courses. » (Probably not)
- What I knew from master of structural engineering was something which is more common in the world as structural mechanics. I expected more theory in conjunction with practical maters. In this program, i feel the emphasis is on educating good ordinary engineers for society but not good researchers and good engineers with profound theoretical background. Some of the courses are absolutely basic and they are not appropriate for name of master of science. Also some courses are too practical and the background theory is not taught. » (Probably not)
- The program is not well-known among industry. The name is very general and miss-leading. Companies don"t know what a "production manager" can do deferent from a "production planner"!» (Probably not)
- because i don"t believe i had enough knowledge from my bachelors degree that could be suffient to this program.» (Probably not)
- Did not give me useful knowledge for my future job (even though I have a job).» (Probably not)
- I am not satisfied with the courses that are offered in this program. The Networks should have been separated from the Distributed systems.» (Probably not)
- I think there is other programs with greater potential» (Probably not)
- It can not feet my interest and my background related to polymer materials» (Probably not)
- Because there are to many similar courses that are compulsory. There is no depht!» (Probably not)
- Strange way of teaching. No deep thoughts, just the basic facts as if it was high school.» (Probably not)
- I come to Chalmers not only to study my specialization, but also to learn "Swedish way studying" in this opprtunity. "Swedish way" means to have good understanding, and simulate them through excersise and projects to obtain sustainable competence. I don"t think I fulfill these goal now. First, it took time for me to know how to study at Chalmers because I can"t have opprtunity to listen to someone. Due to a lot of international students, also lack of opprtunity to know swedish way, and lower moral (a lot of copy are there, using language other than english), I tend to lost myself, what was my goal and what is correct and what is wrong, what moral is available in Chalmers? what is the best way? Will industry be satisfied and think Chalmers studnets are qualified? I think faculty needs to show strongly about swedish way or what they expect or recommend how to study, clearer. The faculty is lack of swedish lecturer, especially Ph.D students, also full of international MP students having lower moral. Please try to take balance.» (Probably not)
- Because this programme is based on totally theoretical knowledge and very less in practical knowledge. Industry demands some practical knowledge and this programme lacks it. » (Probably not)
- I"ve realised I"m more interested in project management and marketing strategies» (Probably not)
- I personally was targeting for a more research-oriented degree. A serious problem with master"s in Sweden is that there is no bloody way to do research. I have friends in the US, Canada and Australia who have got more research outcome from their master"s, so to say publications (and I"m pretty confident that I am able to do as good as them as we have been classmates for years and I know them quite well). The problem is that teachers still look at master"s student as undergrads, and I believe it is wrong! I personally approached several teachers for doing something extra and they almost never took it serious. In one case that I persisted, the professor gave me something that was almost nothing worthwhile. Honestly, I really feel bad that if I had also done my degree somewhere else I had now much better chances for getting into PhD studies since that has been my aim since 3-4 years ago.» (Probably not)
- Programmet i sig var bra men av personligt intresse skulle jag idag läsa master program på Maskin istället. » (Probably not)
- I would go for a program that make a good mixture of biology, mathematics, and especially computer science. The Chalmers program are seems favorable to mathematics and statistics. I agree that they"re powerful tools, but considering in current practice we can"t neglect the practice of computer science or to say exactly information technology.» (Probably not)
- Two really poor compulsory courses and only one really good compulsory course (SCM Intro course, 15 hp).» (Probably not)
- I took all my elevtice couses at Management of Innovation and Technology and really liked them. » (Probably not)
- Felt I choose wrong. Algorithms, Languages and Logic would be more suitable for me.» (Probably not)
- We were promissed a masters program for electrical engineers with electronics, ended up with almost only programming and computer knowledge.» (Probably not)
- I expected learn more in deep subjects related with security and useful for a job.» (Probably not)
- It is mostly computer engineering than electrical engineering. I have a background in electrical engineering.» (Probably not)
- dissatisfied with some of the courses, mentioned above and especially some teeachers( Jan Wickenberg) » (Probably not)
- I am expecting some core statistics, but it turned to be other way. Rather, i would like to do masters in mathemetical statistics now. » (Probably not)
- personnal taste» (Probably not)
- The program is generally interesting and good, but it lacks a bit of focus. I find it quite hard to explain to company representatives what we"re studying and why we"re doing that. Of course I understand that complex systems is a gigantic field, which is a problem. I would now rather choose something else and then choose the best courses from CAS as elective courses, because the best ones are really very good.» (Probably not)
- Most of the part it felt like a repetition from Bachelor degree.» (Probably not)
- I feel that I"ve learned a lot during the whole product development project, but this at the cost of great frustration. This was mostly caused by the fuzzyness of the project, which was not presented in the beginning, and the lack of support from the project sponsor and the supervisor. Also I find that the group dynamic has been poor in the sense of initiative from the other groupmembers.» (Probably not)
- most of the courses depend on written exams solely.» (Probably not)
- There is very little feefback offered. Mostly, the tasks are to read or write aarticles, and the focus is HOW we write them, i.e. methodolgy etc, not WHAT we write. It feels like they only try to prepare us for a future within chalmers as a researcher. The way of teaching is not satisfying concidering how may student we are. In order to learn, while being over 59 student in every class, good course litterature must be offered. This is not often the way it is.» (Probably not)
- 1-Interdisciplinary trends need to be established based on the cooperations between different departments.It is not good that one person teaches most of the courses 2-attention toward mathematics of theory which is the most important part is not enough 3-CAS program needs mathematician very very much.Although some of the most exciting investigations in mathematics are being done by theoretical physicists I found that there are serious differences between a view of mathematician and physicist 4-It is impossible to have a good program with 40 persons in master because the chance of discussion and real form of cotact with teacher is very low.so reduce the number of accepted persons 5-in some cases I found the persons who were responsible for evaluation of projects did not have the eligibility for that and they just were biased toward some definite solutions which were presented by a group who had done it together » (Probably not)
- because i was very disapointed at how long goals and how which subjects you were able to choose among» (Probably not)
- Think it is a little bit too basic.» (Probably not)
- The level is far to low. You don"t really need to put in any effort at all to pass the courses. » (Probably not)
- not suitable for myself» (Probably not)
- Most of the lectures are terrible. The program is not technical enough» (Probably not)
- I think the IESD program would have suited me better. But Communication Engineering was a good program and I don"t regret it.» (Probably not)
- because it really did not give the knowledge I"d been looking for» (Probably not)
- No structure» (Probably not)
- There are something I can not understand » (Probably not)
- Because I think this program is not so good and there is not so good future to find a work in this field.» (Probably not)
- It is too many student in each course. Redo the courses to fit the increased number of students or even better reduce the number of students again. More student = More money, why not more courses, assistant and so on? Are you getting greedy on my behalf? Anyhow, my education suffers from it!» (I would consider it)
- I thought it was going to be more focus on the automotive industry. Instead, it was only about the car itself which was a shame. I think that I would have taken the product development programme instead.» (I would consider it)
- Several lecturers are so bad attending is a waste of time. I really think Chalmers should put more effort in picking lecturers who can teach. I do understand that this must be difficult, but this is my major gripe with my education.» (I would consider it)
- I think that the programme has intresting topics but not all courses have been goog.» (I would consider it)
- I would probably not choose Chalmers again if I could turn back time five years, but I would choose MEI before SCM and QOM.» (I would consider it)
- Maybe not as much "product development" as I would like, plus the sometimes disappointing administration of courses followed by the inability to listen to the students to make a change. This sometimes resulted in bad conditions for the students.» (I would consider it)
- You dont get enough information about the different programms to be able ta make the right choice, a studyvisit to companies where different master students work would have been nice, to see more of what you can do when finished with the different master programs. » (I would consider it)
- It is too much like the military service. do this, do that, and if you"re lucky I will answer questions.» (I would consider it)
- I would choose Geo and water because of their staffs and coordinator, unfortunately in my program some of the students couldn"t communicate with some staffs and specially coordinator» (I would consider it)
- I would probably choose fundamental physics, but some courses in CAS were definitely of use.» (I would consider it)
- The programme has not given me the hands on tools that would be useful for my first job. The learnings have been very high level and I would have liked to get more concrete tools.» (I would consider it)
- Too few courses to choose among. It"s not possible to specialize in one subject or two subjects.» (I would consider it)
- I was not informed about the overall perspective of the MP before. Now i found other MPs beeing more interesting» (I would consider it)
- Det visade sig att det ju inte var så mycket väg- och vatten över det hela...bara en massa miljö!» (I would consider it)
- The course selection is good, but the content of each course does not seem to finnished » (I would consider it)
- The level on the some of the courses have been to low and some of the compulsory courses have been more or less repetition from the Bachelor. » (I would consider it)
- but i would choose to do the technical track instead .(but i would prefer all the management paper summed up in a single paper )» (I would consider it)
- I would rather go for something in Handels, with more managerial skills. Also, the requirmentes for intl students include some job experience, when that is unexistent for Sweds. I think it lowers a lot the level of discussions at class, when you compare someone with experience to someone who has only read books. I don"t know why, but at least on the poeple I know, the students at handles seems to be older. Also I had some course of the QOP program, where the level of intl students is hihger (therefore the amount of students that has previous working experience is higher) and the level of discussions is highly superior» (I would consider it)
- I would probably choose it but since the career prospects are unclear and a bit blurred I might consider a course oriented towards computer science. But nevertheless I find the course quite flexible and would hopefully be of some help to move to a computing career if necessary» (I would consider it)
- There are not enough courses of interest, too many environmental courses. » (I would consider it)
- It is a stressful program whcih requires you to work more than I feel that I physiclly can manage but it is also very interesting and I have learned a lot. » (I would consider it)
- I think I am more interested in another track » (I would consider it)
- In my opinion, it should be more practical real work» (I would consider it)
- The courses are to general and easy. » (I would consider it)
- I would probably choose MPSES instead, since I have realised that I am very interested in energy» (I would consider it)
- i learn a lot this year, but i am not so sure that this could be applied in my own country.» (I would consider it)
- Era jävla stolpskott!!! Jag läser MEI men inte på Chalmers!! Kan vara ganska smart att fråga det innan man börjar fråga om "hur man blev bemött på Chalmers" och "hur lärarna är".. Men men .. antar att det är ert problem att lista ut vilka som läst första året av sin Master på Chalmers och vilka som läst den på andra universitet via World Wide och Unitech.. Antar att jag försöker säga att ni nog fuckat upp validiteten i undersökningen genom att inte kolla det... Lycka till iaf!!» (I would consider it)
- The number of international students (I am from Sweden) have been a big issue. We have had projects in almost every course, and in several courses I have been forced to do everything myself. Some (international) students never show up, never do what they promised to do, have never used MATLAB before. I have been forced to do everything myself, because I don"t know if they are gonna do it or if they are gonna be "sick" or have an "emergency" or "miss the bus" (yes, I have heard all these excuses, and I can"t understand why missing the bus makes you miss a 2 hour meeting) the days before the deadline. On the other hand, it has been an honour to work with some (other) international students. Easy to cooperate with and to understand. The programme has been good, the structure and the content. But some of the students have been a pain to me.» (I would consider it)
- The program is alright, but there is no work which is the state of the markets fault. Other areas have been less affected like energy optimization.» (I would consider it)
- Hard to tell. It was not really what I understood it to be, bur Im satisfied altough.» (I would consider it)
- I now realize that I would like to pursue my career in a more business management field than deep down into technical field.» (I would consider it)
- I would like to learn more concrete knowledge and skills» (I would consider it)
- The concept of Master"s in Sweden seems to be taken quite lightly and has very little value. It seems that any one can get in and many of the students are simply there because they know they will have a difficult time finding a related job. I find that the student"s relatively uninterested attitude prevents the opportunity for inter-student topical stimulation, and the thinking is rarely challenged. Frankly, the courses seem to focus on telling the students what to learn and does not encourage the students to explore what they are keen on. In general, I am disappointed in the Master"s level students" lack of interest and initiative. » (I would consider it)
- Its hard and i maybe want to work in a different field.» (I would consider it)
- quite good to learn more things, but something is too general, means that maybe the content is good, but we can not learn much» (I would consider it)
- The other master program I considered has a braoder job market after graduation.» (I would consider it)
- lack of competition» (I would consider it)
- because this design project course, teacher are not give any help, and all the international studet were dropped this course. let the swidish student all pass.» (I would consider it)
- finns inte så mycket annat att välja bland i stan.» (I would consider it)
- I would hesitate between Industrial Ecology and Sustainable Energy System programmes» (I would consider it)
- Many of the required courses was not my cup of tea.» (I would consider it)
- The compulsory courses given by the building physics department. » (I would consider it)
- Some of the compulsory courses have questionable quality, and seems to be included only because of their name.» (I would consider it)
- Market for jobs is not too bright for industrial ecology. Some of the topics are a bit abstract.» (I would consider it)
- Some of the courses have been just a repeat of my bachelor"s degree courses. I do not think that I learned much new staff. » (I would consider it)
- I would select other courses» (I would consider it)
- I didn"t learn much from this programme, although it contains lots of information, but these are so wide in range, and we don"t know which is our focusing field.» (I would consider it)
- You don´,t get sufficiently skilled in logistics and international trade on an operational level, which whould look so much better when at an interview!» (I would consider it)
- The programme gives the perspective that it covers nanoscience and technology abroad. Once that you are studying it, it turns out that it is very specificly oriented to few areas such as quantum devices, molecular electronics or superconductors, loosing in a way the bionanoscience and extremely the chemonanoscience, or at least is difficult to find it.» (I would consider it)
- a bit to thoretical.» (I would consider it)
- depend on if getting a job afterwards or not» (I would consider it)
- With my bachelor background I probably would have benefited by chosing another mater programme instead, as I feel that they might be too little interrelated with each other» (I would consider it)
- Not entirely sure, but I would like to have more skills that are sought after among companies. eg. Simulation software, experimental experience etc.» (I would consider it)
- The overall progression from bachelor degree in architecture from a university in denmark is too poor. » (I would consider it)
- the level is not high enough» (I would consider it)
- Jag skulle kolla mer på de liknande utbildningarna vid de andra högskolorna. » (I would consider it)
- I am concerned that my training at Chalmers is not sufficient to become an architect in my home country. I will not have the opportunity to take many courses that are required back home. » (I would consider it)
- since after this program and passing some courses in Graphics field, Ifound my real field of interest.» (I would consider it)
- I learn a lot from this programme,but i am still very interesting in perceptual design.» (I would consider it)
- But there is not enough use of software or calculation» (I would consider it)
- Did not live up to my expectations.» (I would consider it)
- The do not feel i have improve so much my competences in this area. In one year it is possible to obtain better result, it is little poor.» (I would consider it)
- It is too much the same.» (I would consider it)
- i may have found another choice» (I would consider it)
- The courses has not deepend my courses from the bachelor level enough, it has been more focus on repeating. Why should I then study 2 more years?? If I don"t get to learn anything new?» (I would consider it)
- I think if I could choose construction management in other countries i would go there not chalmers.the syllabus in chalmers really can improve.» (I would consider it)
- I"m not sure it"s for me.» (I would consider it)
- I would have like to develop my knowledge from my bachelor degree more» (I would consider it)
- I would choose some program within material science» (I would consider it)
- Learning outcomes from the courses did not meet my expectations, but the other aspects of the programme I like.» (I would consider it)
- Would like to learn programming better.» (I would consider it)
- Less practical courses as i anticipated.» (I would consider it)
- I have been a bit disappointed by the knowledge I got within the master programme. I would have expect a higher level in the courses.» (I would consider it)
- Still intresting subjects and the only available with the specific genre» (I would consider it)
- It does not bring very much new knowledge. It feels as a repetiotion of I with some extras.» (I would consider it)
- I am very interested in the subjects taught in the program but I don"t think it manages to teach those subjects very well.» (I would consider it)
- The core courses was on the average(in terms of content and quality). Staff was not enough (in numbers). Not many elective courses directly related with our programme. » (I would consider it)
- Chalmers is better because We can study in the same room together with Swedish students. but compare IESD-CTH to SOC-KTH, SOC-KTH has better curriculum. » (I would consider it)
- No so such electable course, very poor information. Why not collaborate with universities in Scandinavia?» (I would consider it)
- I like the programme and wish it would be better but it needs stronger administrational management and attention by the coordinators. On paper this all sounds very good but at class room the reality is different in a bad way. Basic things like information flow from coordinators is not sufficient, feeling is that we have not got enought information related to our studies or the information comes just before something needs to be done.» (I would consider it)
- too many students in the class. 20-50 yould be acceptable, but 100++ for a masters program is unacceptable.. Plus, I expected the courses to be more practical.» (I would consider it)
- The programme could benefit from a more focused selection of courses and a better timetable.» (I would consider it)
- Also considered Naval architecture» (Yes - probably)
- Half of the courses were very interesting» (Yes - probably)
- There is no better to choose.» (Yes - probably)
- I would probably today choose between supply chain mgt, Quality and operations mgt and production engineering» (Yes - probably)
- Very interesting field and interesting courses, but some of the courses could be revised/approved.» (Yes - probably)
- i discovered other programmes quite interesting too this year.» (Yes - probably)
- It has been a broad programme. I feel prepared to take work in a number of different careers. And choice of career path is importand, especially in today"s economic crisis.» (Yes - probably)
- Everything about the school was perfect. But the social aspect was not as good. Did not get a connection with the other students.» (Yes - probably)
- I am becoming like my programme now thourgh studing.» (Yes - probably)
- Even though much can be improved in the programme, I feel that the masters programme has led me into a track of work that satisfies me.» (Yes - probably)
- Or a program focusing more on industrial systems/energy systems or industrial ecology.» (Yes - probably)
- Even though it has lots of improvement opportunities it still has the right main content suitable for my interrests.» (Yes - probably)
- I would consider the nano-technology programme, since I would like to get more practical knowledge in nano-fabrication. » (Yes - probably)
- I think that improving SCM in companies, is somehting that will be crucial for the future. I am very happy that i choose this master program but i think that it might have been an even bigger challenge, for me, to try to get into business school.» (Yes - probably)
- Good mix of courses with a lot of options of taking other courses. There is a red line throughout the programme. SCM project was an example of a good experiment that was made in the programme, while Discrete Event and Control Optimization was a horrible experiment.» (Yes - probably)
- This programme or the Chemistry and Bioscience programme include the subjects that I"m interested in and want to have a career in.» (Yes - probably)
- If I had erasmus scholarship then would have taken NordSecMob.tkk.fi» (Yes - probably)
- Why not definitely yes?! As it took A LOT of energy in the 1st year. As an international student I was used to another educational system and I think the 1st year workload should be revised.» (Yes - probably)
- Cause this is what I choosed to learn and study the first time I applied to this school, this is what I want to do» (Yes - probably)

- Men jag hade kanske läst lite andra kurser.» (Yes - probably)
- cause network security and stuff is quite interesting.» (Yes - probably)
- Some coarses are quite basics and very much repetition for some people in the class. I can"t say that I have gained a deeper understanding for the subjuct. Most of the coarses are just basic.» (Yes - probably)
- The standard is very low compared to the Bachelor level (Teknisk fysik, Chalmers). In some sense it is convenient since human is lazy by nature, but at the same time I think it is a shame for Physics at Chalmers. Many of the courses I have taken would have been laughed at at bachelor level.» (Yes - probably)
- The two afore-mentioned courses were a scandalous waste of time and resources (international projects and financial management). The degree gives a lot of freedom of chioce of units which allows me to create an invaluable tailor-made degree for myself. However the course focuses almost exclusively on soft skills without any real critical analysis of individuals" performance which can help them develop. For this reason I might choose a degree with more tangible aims.» (Yes - probably)
- I could choose a different area of interest.» (Yes - probably)
- I find the area of work interesting.» (Yes - probably)
- Or taking the energy systems program at NTNU (Norway).» (Yes - probably)

- It is very flexible.» (Yes - probably)
- I would probably choose a little different among the courses, but still the same program. Most important though, I would delay my starting of the program with one year, as I wasn"t motivated enough at the beginning, which (combined with private things) resulted in poor results.» (Yes - probably)
- Good work opertunity, some of the thinks seams funn» (Yes - probably)
- some new stuffs» (Yes - probably)
- Because it is the only possible continuation for my bacchelor programme.» (Yes - probably)

- intense academic atmosphere» (Yes - probably)
- The program two years since its introduction, needs some advanced courses in the second year» (Yes - probably)
- :) It"s a rather good program, given that one can choose the majority of the courses.» (Yes - probably)
- Even though it might not meet the standards I expected there is reslly no alternative for me at chalmers sice it is the only one combining design and product development» (Yes - probably)
- Because it contains the courses that I wanted to study (on the other hand, I could have taken them at a different university that perhaps would have been better). I"m not proud of Chalmers.» (Yes - probably)
- I have chosen to acquire the knowledge elsewhere or at least deepen it elsewhere, there are possibilities to attend projects and so on in order to learn what I felt was missing in the program» (Yes - probably)
- Found out that Im interested in interaction design aswell, so it would be either sw-e or that.» (Yes - probably)

- Good mixture, my field of intrerest» (Yes - probably)
- I am interested in this kind of subjects.» (Yes - probably)
- Might have chosen a program with a higher degree of connection to some sort of hardware.» (Yes - probably)
- Since there are a lot of different students from different universities in this programme, there are a big difference in what knowledge each student has when attending this master programme. The difference is actually to big and since the master programme is quite technical I think an entrance exam would be needed.» (Yes - probably)
- Mostly because all the other programs suck.» (Yes - probably)
- This is what I want to do, no other way around it if you want to study in Gbg» (Yes - probably)
- There is no better option to chose from. But the program needs to get better» (Yes - probably)
- Because i want a job related to this program.» (Yes - probably)
- Some courses are total rubbish, Felt like I was waisting my time on those courses. The courses in the beginning of the master were at a very low pace and didn"t broaden my knowledge, just gave a recapitulation of previously collected information. » (Yes - probably)
- There are other good options.» (Yes - probably)
- came from Z, så IE was totally different but gave me a much better analytical mind» (Yes)
- very interesting courses» (Yes)
- I picked it because of the individual courses which are all good-very good and the possibility to freely choose a large part.» (Yes)
- Because it was overall a good programme where the teachers was also overall good» (Yes)

The topic is new and seems to be very important in the future. The program prepares us for the future and gives us an adavantage for the future in compare to people which are not that into the issues of supply chain management. The combination of theory and projects which include teamwork and presentations is great and prepares us not just related to theoretical knowledge.» (Yes)
- I would choose it because of the field of study, but the job market is far too poor in Sweden to get a job within the field. The teachers of the master programme overexaggerated the quality of the programme aswell as the job oppertunities after.» (Yes)

- The program has lived up to my expectations.» (Yes)
- I am satisfied with it - it allows me to stay close to my bachelor subject» (Yes)

- Because it is a very interseting master program. The problem is only my background. Not enough knowledge from my Bachelor» (Yes)
- as I expected before.» (Yes)
- Because this is what interests me the most and what I want to work with in the future. The thing is that I"ve studied my first and only year of master abroad and not at Chalmers, that"s why it"s so many "No opinion" but I"ve still tried to match my courses here with the ones offered at home.» (Yes)
- I would still take it, but there are a few courses as I have mentioned above that I would have not taken. Replaced them with other subjects to avoid poor teaching and poor quality of material. » (Yes)

- I like my program very much.» (Yes)
- It is nice to get to know a lot of students from the whole world.» (Yes)
- Although the core courses are somehow too distributed and less focused, it is good in the sense that it offers great variety and possibility. Students have the freedom to choose their direction and teachers welcome their choice. I prefer very much the freedom we have in this course.» (No opinion)
- well the only thing i felt that there should be some easy going subjects in the first quarter as it is very difficult for the international student to come settle here soon due to the accommodation problem and settlement with the environment, so student should be given some edge in this regard. » (No opinion)

The first two courses provided a great introduction to the programme and to each other. The Project Management course"s "live project" was one of the highlights.»

- I think the core courses have been good. They all seemed to be relevant.»
- The core courses are good. I think instead of doing the 12 courses the 6 courses must be tought with every course in detail having two parts.for example there is a course digital communication. Then this course must be tought like digital communication a and digital communication b with 7.5 , 7.5 credit hours. We do elective courses from management , some from other field that is not from communication side and we dont learn so much as well and our focus that is comminication enginnering it just lost some where doing some 6 courses that are different. So please make some course plan in this way so that we learn as maximum and acheive the targets and goals of the course as much. And I find some teachers that are the real teachers with skills , Erik strom , Neima sefi , so dont change them, they are good.»

35. What should definitely be changed in your Masters programme?

- Go deeper into each subject, sometimes I feel that I haven"t learned anything new at all.»
- Change the ELDO and VEF course!»
- The schedules should be fixed for certain time in the week for each subject. Because, when doing the selection of subjects for the next term, since the schedules are not yet posted, after that we can have a lot of schedule clashes. And that is one of the biggest problems when selecting all ELECTIVE courses we have, since they are most probably from a different department.»
- More examination through projects and less written examinations.»
- No opinion»
- Better and more clear information about the program and maybe the opportunity to meet and talk to student already in the program in an easy way. At least I had a lot to do during the time of the decision of masterprogram so there was not a lot of time to do research on my own.»
- the courses are not very advanced and sometimes it feels as if we have studied the same thing in swedish during the bachelor.»
- Did not like that building performance was madatory.»
- The quality of the teachers, courses and students is way too low! More focus on business and less on science!»
- It needs to be more clear about choices such as Master Thesis and course election. The information needs to come out much earlier then today. It feels as if I was in a huge Beta-test some times.»
- A basic course in mechanics should be offered for those students who does have other bachelor background than mechanical. This would facilitate understanding in courses.»
- Some courses repeat the same basic information about sustainable development and other concepts over and aver again.»
- environmental management should not be mandatory, LCA course would fit better»
- I think that one could add other relavant courses and make all courses semi-compulsary instead.»
- The heavy group work dependance. I can only recall one project where I"ve worked where my grade hasn"t been dragged down because some lazy bastards weren"t interested in working. The basic idea was that working in groups can simulate real life. That"s true, but in real life low performing workers get fired, they can"t get "fired" here.»
- some teacher are really not pedagogical, and some courses should not be in this master program»
- Drop the course Enery systems modelling and pålanning or change it radically. To much old stuff as it is today. Should be more deepening of knowledege from other courses.»
- Some of the courses needs improvement and revising, but as many of the courses are very new, it is to some extent understandable that all of them are not perfect yet»
- Improve ENGLISH! Improve/increase communication between different courses - to avoid overlapping. You can not start every course with "what is sustainable development?" eventually - you will stop listening...»
- The number of students, feedback possibility»
- the travelling (it is very costly and when you travel somewhere where even the teachers has to travel to it seems kind of uneccessary)»
- Higher level on the courses»
- modern manufacturing processes Teachers who cant speek English »
- Heat and Moisture Engineering»
- Revise the more theoretical courses (such as Economics of Innovation)»
- See point 22.»
- It is not the master program that need changes, it is the chemistry bachelor program at Chalmers that has to change.»
- Sometimes the link of some "environmental" course with the master program is not easy to see and one can wonder why some points of the course are studied, because it feels that it has not that much to do with the whole master program.»
- Faster time until feedback is given.»
- Introductory courses should be revised.»
- First autumn, generally more balance between the subjects. Very much time goes to the structural engineering courses, the building performance design is suffering.»
- The course "Passive safety" and "Hybrid vehicles and control".»
- Nothing»
- The vibration control course»
- Data aquisition and systems biology was extremely unorganized. The subject is interesting but they should reorganize it. I didn"t even know who the examinator was and who to turn to with questions.»
- Find content which extend the knowledge from the bachelor and are closer/connected to the real world»
- More advertising in order to attract students. Many of the teachers are not very charismatic, pedagogical or engaged.»
- Materials selection and design, remove and replace this course.»
- More pedagogical lecturers. Björn von Sydow"s teachings are example of great pedagogy. Sven-Arne would benefit from learning from him since he cant lecture, especially not in english. Also Phillipas lectures were a pain to attend.»
- More electronics oriented courses available for the second year.»
- thier should be more fields allowed...In biomedical engineering main focus is on imaging and not much work is odne on instrumentation side. I would like ti see more advanced courses in instrumentation side»
- Move the Information Theory course»
- Make better recommendations for elective courses. There are many good and related courses not mentioned.»
- Lars Bengtsson should not teach any courses. Unfortunately he does not seems to care for his students and seems more interested in avoiding work than helping.»
- Research orientation is lacking.»
- For some lectures: Less copy & paste from course books. For exams: less "by heart learning", more thinking questions. I am not sure learning a book by heart and forgetting everything two weeks later is that good for us. For labs: Make random groups in all courses, so students do not stay with friends from their own country, which has happened a lot this year (I did it as well). I think this will help us to know and interact with each other in the promotion. For admission: Definitely apply higher criteria (see below).»
- -Change the master coordinator, since he"s got far to much on his table, and lack all form of administrative skills. -The course in mathematical modelling should be less fuzzy. I don"t think I learned anything from that course. -Proper course evaluations!!! -Better information before course selection. »
- A better course in mathematical modelling»
- There is to much freedoom. It is easy to get offtrack. Recommend more required courses with very similiar themes.»
- More courses in distributed systems, and even in networks, particularly advanced courses. I felt I had to take on security/unix courses just to fill my programme. »
- some of my courses are almost the same with my courses in bachelor. so i would like to change that courses.»
- Improved cooperation/administration between courses.»
- Add a database course with a teacher that can speak proper English NOT a Norwegian/Scottish blend (read Rogart Heldal)»
- Lars Bengtson should not teach any courses, he lacks the ability to properly teach and dosen´,t seem to take an interest in his students »
-
- Foundations of probability theory. »
- Increased opportunity and motivation for collaboration.»
- The courses, the level of the education. It would also be nice if the international students accepted to the program would speak english since I don"t speak chinese, and I"m getting sick of communicating in pictures.»
- Poor contact with industry»
- The amount of theory in all courses, and number of hours with teachers»
- More information about the diploma work.»
- Better HVAC course, more applied to the program, not too general.»
- more practical courses»
- The name of the master programme does not include what is actually includes. It is today way too many enviromental courses and should be more focus on courses within geo and traffic planning!»
- The compulsory main course for each of the three tracks should be given during the first year. Open the eyes for other control tools than DES. See other automation controllers than those based on IEC 61131.»
- The information regarding what courses that we can chose. And dont set courses that are of no value as required courses for a certain specialization.»
- the could be some clearer "tracks" besides the nuclear options. energy engineer is a quite broad title... »
- Some courses should not be mandatory to pass. »
- More contact with the industry, like visiting different companys. More course evaluations!!! We have not had evaluations in all of the courses.»
- The commuication between student is less, especially between the international student and the swedish student.»
- I"m not sure that the 60p project course was time well spent.»
- We need better litterature for Power system analysis and solutions to some exercises so that we know how to calculate when we study on our own.»
- maybe a different room for the courses than the only one we use at the department which has no windows»
- The workload for the teachers... some of them have no time for the students and some of the have little time. This has a great impact on the motivation of the students! »
- Compulsory courses.»
- You can pass the courses by common sense and even get a higher grade without reading almost anything. "It"s more like a college than university here" was a comment from an exchange student. I agree.»
- More elective courses in road engineering and trafic. Develop the cooperation with Lunds tekniska högskola! Less environment and water courses!»
- The Microwave Projects I and II course.»
- the course "Managing organizations" in the construction industry" have to be changed until next year.»
- More information on what courses you can chose»
- Advanced Classical Physics»
- Earlier information about the Master thesis. Since you can do a 60hp thesis, the info meeting should by in the spring term at latest.»
- the ability of the teachers to speak correct english in a better accent»
- cant come up with anything»
- Nothing.»
- in charge staff sould be more accurate and strict about how are granted the addmition in this master programm.»
- The course of Environmental Management should be revised. Basically a necessary and interesting course, so it should not be taken away completely, but last spring it did not function properly.»
- Get rid of the specific connection to a very limited number of industries (architecture and construction basically). Merge the management education with the rest of them at the Dept. of Technology Management and Economics. »
- More available courses for M-students with aim of deepenning our technology skills (the few availaible were for K-students only)!»
- The course Life Cycle Assessment should be made mandatory»
- The lecturer in the course power system operation, i did not take the course because i did not understand his english, it is very poor, even the mastersstudent from the same part of the world (värdsdel) did not understand him.»
- There is a few elective courses in my programme. »
- The two "double courses" (astrophysics and earth science, electromagnetic waves and spectroscopy) should be separated. The waves part must be improved. More astrophysics courses!»
- Maybe some activities can be held to increase the communication between Swedish and International students. For us international students, it is very difficult to join in the Swedish students.»
- The Project Management course should preceed the PD Project, so it should be mandatory in the 2nd quarter of the first year.»
- Less repetition. I would like more interesting courses to choose from in quarter 1. It is very few interesting courses to choose from, in my opinion.»
- Research contents/ Thesis should be of 1 year at least or more than that and Chalmers should take all the responsibilities to find paid/unpaid Thesis for every Masters student. More Laboratory based exercise should be implemented into the core courses.»
- The attitude.»
- number core courses should be less.»
- The level of some courses (for example Fuel Cells and Biological Physics) needs to improve. Some of the assignments could be solved by High School students. You get the feeling that the level is lowered so that many students can pass the course (to earn money to the institution?). It is not acceptable. The students should need to step up their effort instead of the courses step down their level.»
- In some courses groups were defined by the teachers. It should be the case for all courses since this teaches the students to work with people they do not know before, to work with people from different cultures and by that to improve teamwork skills.»
- Some courses overlap and better communication between the teachers about the course contents might help. More could be learnt if time is not spent on repeated lectures from earlier courses just because of lack of communication. »
- Stubborn course staff who don"t listen to students" real questions.»
- Mikael Persson should be taught a lesson in social skills and stop being an idiot, alot of foreign students feel that he is slightly resentful towards them.»

- Research by design was scattered with many parts integrated? Wasn´,t it? I like the mystic approach to the course and see the value of a course preparing for "forskning".»
- more technology focus, to much soft parts as it is»
- The courses have not been more advanced compared to the bachelor ones. The so called advanced courses only gives a basic overview of the field(s).»

- -Harder prerequsists for international students (see below)»
- Everything the lecturer says should be in the book, so you can read up on it. There should always be a book, or at most two books, not lots and lots of fragments from everywhere.»
- The planning of courses, some quarters we have to take away an interesting course (choose 2 of 3) and some quarters we just can choose 1 out of 1 course.»
- the course "bioreactors"»
- Maybe more practice in the theoretical courses (ex: advanced algorithm, machine learning (like programming exercise))»
- This program is supposed to be a construction management program. It means that it is not and engineering course to be taught only by researchers. The knowledge that should be transferred must be on the ground of project management within the construction sector. Although,it seems to be so, but the teachers don"t have enough competence for this purpose because none of them has worked in the construction sector and they are purely academicians. for example, I can"t understand what a teacher with a linguistic background does in construction management department. So the curriculum of the program does not bring enough practical knowledge for students. Instead of just inviting guest lecturers to push the schedule of the courses forward, it would be better to make a survey in advance from the construction industry both in Sweden and abroad (because there are collaborations between Construction management department and other foreign universities, specially UK universities)and design a curriculum that would be based on the future needs to work in the construction industry.»
- The administration has to be improved a lot. Both the Programmes but most important is the course adminitstration to almost all courses has been too poor. E.g. in study week 5 you SHOULD know what kind of exam there will be in the end of the course (Study week 8).»
- The fact that every course starts with a 2-3 weeks recap of the previous course to enable students from other programs to take the courses from my program. It feels ridiculus to spend so much time studying things we have already done. »
- EOI»
- More courses in every subject.»
- Sometimes it is too focused in the construction sector. Maybe a broader number of lecturers from different areas. Definetely more teachers.»
- A regular check on the groups since over 50% of the examination is based on group work. The groups are never checked to see if they function properly and thus some students put it in system to use other students for passing the courses. They take 3-4 extra courses per semester while other students get a workload of 200% without taking extra courses. This is horribly dissatisfying. I do not know if it is only my Masters programme, but this must be dealt with.»
- There are too few lectures. And not all of the lectures we have feel particularly relevant. At best they may be interesting in their own right, but more often than not, they can be both boring and irrelevant.»
- less emphasis on the technical side (like Transportation and IT) more emphasis on the Management side(Lean, Agile, 6 sigma, ...)»
- That data aquisition and biopolymers are obligatory courses. The problem with the exchange students! Many of them have a very low standard english and they copy from sources and don"t know how to reference sources. It should be obligatory for them to have a course in report writing when they start. This issue makes all the projects difficult to perform and takes more effort than what they should since we swedih speaking students do the exchange students work. With the tissue track their is a problem with the competence of the students. Students from the biomedical track are allowed to take these courses and they don"t have the same biotechnology backround as the biotechnology bachlor students, which makes project work hard and brings down the level of education. As it is now, we are learning the exchange students what we know and we don"t learn that much new as we could. Is this the purpose of the master programms?!!!! »
- The schedule in quarter 3, all of the electable courses collided.»
- Better overall information. All the information that is handed out should be in english (of course there can be some exceptions), but handouts and study exams HAS TO BE in english, NOT swedish. It"s outrageous that the swedish should have an advantage in an english programme. The coordinator is not doing a good job, students don"t get the information they need. everything is unclear how everything works, and what the rules are. The coordinator is uncapable to give a clear answer, (to unsecure). Mostly late with the that is given out.»
- The courses are very interesting. But they are often too hard and they give too many things to learn, and too many compulsory exercises. The minimum amount of work required is usually much too high. I would much prefer that we should study less many things and study more in detail a few main subjects. There should be general courses and specialized ones towards computer science applications. But here, I have the impression that all courses are very general, giving little place to applications. But the applications are very important for my possibility to find a nice job. »
- The amount of group work. More elective courses available.»
- The Course: Information system for SCM, I would like to have more work with the actuall comupter program that are discussed.»

- Some of the courses were newly introduced and were not well defined and organized. »
- Ta bort miljökurserna»
- the mandatory courses (see comments for question 22).»
- More choices for the individual courses that we could take. More management courses or behaviour courses. I think we all need to learn more about how people act in different situation and how to be able to influence them.»
- The coordination between lecturers and courses»
- More deep going courses should be available.»
- Geo and Water är alldeles för bred. Det går inte att innefatta så vitt skilda ämnen i samma master! Man lär sig inget "riktigt" utan bara en massa lösrykta bitar från olika delar.»
- The curriculum needs some improvement.»
- Communication and networking among students should be enforced more. Flow and quality of courses should be explained to students.»
- None I can think of»
- The environmental management course.»
- i would add at least one course in managerial skills. ALL MY CLASSMATES TRIED TO GET INTO PROJECT MANAGEMETN AND OB, which means they alos want those kinds of courses inflcuded»
- No opinion»
- Discrete Event and Control Optimization should either be removed or be heavily revised. The students have no idea what they should learn in the course and the whole course seems to be designed to achieve a minimal workload for the teacher, nothing else.»
- Different tracks could be clarified more (with recommendations on what courses to choose from other Masters promgrams).»
- Depth of the course, derivations based on fundamentals if possible. Alternative or intutive incite in to concepts. An attempt at uncovering the career prospects of the course or atleast the relevance of a subject to one"s career which at present is quite blurry. Less emphasis on team/project management or group meetings, which are actually considered a necessary evil in the real world and more emphasis on product/code management, just enough software engineering and just enough agile development which are increasingly more relevant. »
- Repetitive topics !! the same old constellation !! again and again repeated over and over !!! by the time, I reach the end of year, I am quite bored to see the same things repeated ! Would rather prefer to learn something new. For example, SSY120 had a question on OFDM, where we initially struggled to understand. Then, we had this in Applied signal processing lab but no lecture and when we finally had the lecture on OFDM, it was in Digital Communications but without any lab. Then, again, the OFDM was used in the Wireless COmmunication project and again, the lecture repeated !!! Course text books: Preferrably a single text ! or text books whose materials are available through chalmers library. »
- Less focus on logistics or at least the possibility to focus on other aspects of supply chain management»
- The goals to be graduated. The schedule of recomended courses, to much collisions! English material & lectures, not swenglish! »
- Remove all "flummiga" courses, like E-health. Increase the difficult level.»
- More courses to choose from. Give more information about other courses (at Chalmers or at a another university)»
- more feed back from the reports as well (not only the exams) maybe a bit of the sheduling, because cousers like GIS related are only available on the 3rd quarter when master students have 2 compulsory courses (it is fine for those that are there for more than 2 years)»
- Some teachers that cannot teach in english and don"t fully understand their own topics»
- More information from the program administrators. For example elective coursesw could be presented in person by the examiners before course election.»
- Better stated application requirements. The once on the found on te net should be follwed so that you do not have read unnecessary courses or miss necessary due to bad info.»
- The module:Financial Management »
- BOM035 Modelling and problem solving in civil engineering »
- Even out the workload, one semester we have so much to du, and the next there is not much to do at all. »

- Environmental systems analysis, I do not feel that makes me able to "controbute to long term sustainable community development". I seek better courses concerning environmental issues over alla. »
- The grading system should be according to ECTS (A,B,C,D and E) not 3,4 and 5 since the ECTS is more descriptive.»
- The level of study is much lower than at the undergraduate level (for engineering physics). It could certainly be raised significantly, at least for Chalmers bachelor graduates.»

- two courses: 1. Building in Society 2. Design process management»
- Teachers must give grades in time»
- We have eared about lack of Master thesis subjects and enough professors for taking as a supervisor. We have told to take master thesis at least in pairs. It is not what I expected from this program. there is also some lacks in coordinations in our program and some very poor lectures from industry and also by Chalmers lecturers. The view of our master thesis is not very clear.»

- * More interesting elective courses * Need to ensure that all (especially exchange students) have sufficient knowledge in English (most of them haven"t) * Test that all students have sufficient theoretical background for the Master programme»
- -project AIDE1 was conducted very poor -Form Design course was a disaster according to too many students -vehicle visualization was conducted very bad, the teacher was absent most of the sessions and the class was lasting almost for 30min!!!»
- i can talk to foreign friends smoothly»
- The ones responsible have to learn to plan in advance and to have respect for the students lives and therefore communicate changes of plans of the education to the students!»
- The studio corse for Matter, Space and Structure should be more structured and also have a schedule. Perhaps the programme should be split in three different programmes, Matter, Space and Structure, Housing, Urban»
- More calculation courses, both in mechanics and other subjects.»
- Se tidigare ang. miljökursen. Mer valbara fördjupningskurser i sammarbete med institutionen, ex doktorandkurser osv. och mer information kring detta. Och framför allt göra det lättare att få med dessa kurser, va månaders härjande fram och tillbaka innan vi fick en doktrandkurs inom släntstabilitet inräknad i systemet och godkännd på alla sätt...»
- Too many basic courses. too much emphasis on practical maters and try to teach profound theory. unorganized courses like heat and moisture engineering. Adding some elective courses to educate students who are more interested in theory and continuing as a researcher.»
- The course Environmental Management»
- hard statistic...»
- The administration! All teachers should correct exams in time (that is, within 3 weeks after the examination), all teachers should follow Chalmers rules about mandatory classes, grading et cetera...»
- The project course.»
- Electronic System Design Project Parallel Computer Architecture»
- More freedom of choice regarding exams. There are some compulsory exams which are almost pointless for students with different tracks (Superconductivity and low temperature physics and Statistical Physics II for students with a Bio track)»
- The quality, and the attituted from students. Most people attending the 2007 SET incarnation didn"t really qualify to be there.»
- Can not come up with anything that needs to be changed.»
- The courses for each track should be really enriched. For each track of production engineering there is an equivalent master program which is much more comprehensive than what we learn. such as "automation engineering" is the complete version of our "production system" track, and "quality and operations management" is equivalent to "technology management" track which is far richer inn courses and teachers.»
- More connections with companies.»
- More industry relevant courses are needed. e.g. C#, automotive industry standard (AUTOSAR)»
- The students skould get more (at least some) support during their master thesis.»
- As in the security track there is only security of development of secure software there should be track for securing network. »
- the advance analytical corse should get a bit moor practical learning »
- The difficulty level of Masters programme at Chalmers are too easy compared to other Universities, for example ETh in Zürich.»
- no opinion»
- Let the teachers take compulsary english courses. If you are teaching in an international master program you should know basic tecnical and matematical terms for example.»
- Most courses need to be re-structure and re-evaluated to let students imposed mroe on the skill of solving problems especially those involving maths.»
- Human Centered Design course should provide some supervision for the project, we are left on our own as it is now.»
- The level is too low. The courses in the bachelor programme required a lot more than the courses in the master programme.»
- i dont know»
- Sustainability course q1 first year, should not be compulsory»
- More information to the exchange students about the rules on copying other sources (I have worked with students who have copied pages of other authors work right of and did not understand that it is not accepted here since that is how they do it in their home counrties and noone have told them the rules here) and how to behave on examinations (in the last exam there was one exchange student who TALKED in her cellphone in the classroom during the exam and several others who went to their backpacks during the exam. I hope they did not cheet, but it"s really hard to know and it would be a lot less disturbing if they knew the rules or at least if the guards knew english and could tell them the rules). It would also be appreciated if more of the mandatory courses were placed during the autumn semester. I was an exchange student during the spring semester, which ment that I had to take all the mandatory courses during the autumn semester (and get one of my courses studied abroad approved) to get my degree.»
- I think that the pace of the masterprogram is much lower then the three first years. Now I want to lean and then the courses should include more. I have not put in the same workload now as before and still getting the same grades. »
- analog IC design teacher and Introduction to ESD lab assistants.»
- look over the 3 cumpulsory courses, biomaterials, bioreactors, data acquisition.... not relevant to all students at the programme.»
- Smaller project, 9 months together with the biggest idiot I ever meet is 9 months too much. Have also done exactly the same project 4 times before during the bachelor, it is enough! Probably will I suggest to remove the mandatory PLM course after I have done it :), the rumors say so.»
- *passive safety *vehicle dynamics *hybrides»
- more courses related to industry»
- Courses and contents of the courses»
- More information regarding the different specializations and what courses they include. Perhaps some type of coordinator that can guide the student in his/her course selection, making sure that he/she takes courses corresponding to the students interests and future plans. Today one must to a large extent decide all by oneself what courses that should be considered important which can be very hard when you have no previous experience in the area. Also, more informal gatherings of students and teachers, making it possible for the students to ask their teachers for advice in a less stressful setting than the classroom.»
- some of the teachers n also some course contents»
- The useage of java in _all_ courses, and the nearly obligatory usage of Haskell in each instance of higher computer language courses. I would like to use other languages as well :b»
- The accessibility and communication to other fields of studies. The location of the place is great in Lindholmen, but the BIG problem is that we are away from the core disciplines which could be useful for us: design, building, computer scientists of chalmers, and all relevant soft disciplines: management, psychology, ethnography, sociology are poorly represented. Cognitive sciences are also away, and I was expecting such formation from this programme. However, the opportunity to choose whatever courses in the fall year 2 is greatly appreciated in this respect. The only thing which SHOULD BE ABSOLUTELY CHANGED is talking to us CLEARLY about this opportunity and possibilities in advance, not 2 weeks before the deadline.»
- More motivations, and a stronger group»

- Some of the core courses needs to changed/removed/replaced with others »
- The information about electice courses, must be improved.»
- Pernilla Glüch should not be allowed to teach. I think she is good at what she does, except the teaching part. Using an attendance list on this level of education is laughable»
- Improve the coordination between courses in terms of content and workload. A better, more extensive, collection of elective courses. Ensure sufficient English skills from students. »
- The programme should give more courses for students to choose at the second year, not just a deeper level of first year"s courses. And maybe give more recommended course on programme website.»
- The introduction of the data aquisition/system biology course - it was hard to get an overview of the course. It needs to be some kind of course litterature in the course bioreactors, design and control. »
- The students. Maybe a test before entering the programme to make sure the students have the right background.»
- »
- the examination pattern for some courses»
- The Microwave Projects course is a disaster!!! »
- Industrial engineering Modern manufacturing processes»
- sharper demands on the students. This is not good enought, this is good enough. Now everything is like diffuse cottonclouds, soft and unclear. It has been like that since I started my first year here at Chalmers. It makes me so unsure about my self and the knoledge I get here. I work my ass of and I do not understand if I understand the course or if the teachers are to kind and let me through anyway. I want to be sure, now when I get my examnia that I am good in something. I do not know at all... I makes me furious!»
- Should be more flexible - more emphasis on doing work aligned with students" interests and less on forced group work.»
- less compulsary courses and more optional course instead»
- Some techers should come with information a little bit earlier. Good if there is some information on the student portal before the courses starts. »
- Exam guards should be able to speak English so they can tell the foreign students not to talk in the cell phones during exams.»
- Flytta kurser till hösten»
- dunno»
- The teachers attitude against students. We do have more than one course. I consider everything in a course to be fixed when the course starts so I can plan my stydies. But they ar seldom. Much information comes up just a week before or something.»
- the structure of the elective and semielective and compulsory courses the student should be able to avoid some compulsory or semielective courses dependeing on the specialization»
- to emphasizes the teacher that try do more exercise.as in many subject we only done 1 example so how can we be able to solve other type of problem just by doing a single example»
- the division should be from the beginnig not after the first term is passed between the tracks»
- One of the main courses»
- I think that the first semester should be changed. There were compulsory courses, but I do not think they are, as they were made last year, good enough to be compulsory. There were other courses I would have prefered attending where I think I would have had a greater learning outcome. I think only Structural systems and FEM should be compulsory the first semester.»
- Projects should be changed every year. I observe that many students get the ready-made projects from their friends in previous batches. For a person who wants to genuinely learn the subject, it makes no difference. But when it comes to giving out points for the projects, these people get an unfair advantage. »
- The sustainability profile is not a "Chemical engineering" profile... where is the engineering in those courses ???»
- the number of students is too large»
- 1) Less end-term exams. Grades should be based on reports, participation in groups and class, individual grading based on topic reports. 2) After 1st quarter, students should be allowed the freedom to choose their own team members in all courses. 3) Swedish language classes (mandatory). 4) Prepatory classes for PhD program. »
- To manny interesting courses in the 4th period, move some to period 2. The CFD and Advanced sep. takes most of the students and good courses like Heterogenous process and catalysis can not be chosen.»
- No opinion»
- The examination in the active course. The book in the antenna course, use Balani instead»
- Material selection and design»
- Dont know. I should think more on that.»

- The level of the education. When you try to attract many different people from differet fiedld it is too easy for everybody.»
- the possibility to choose more courses within Building Performance Design during spring»
- Some of the teachers English knowledge... Maybe more courses to choose from for the second year (third semester).»
- Environmental Management»
- 1.The credits of Room Acoustics should be 15 instead of 7.5. 2. They don"t help us as much as previous year"s students in finding master thesis.»
- Overhaul the two units: international projects and financial management. Add some units that don"t soley focus on soft skills. E.g. lean, agile, total quality management, materials flow...»
- There should be more clear demands on the students that are accepted to different courses. So far, many students without the necessary background knowledge have been accepted to some of the courses. This affects the whole course, especially when students have to do projects in groups. Make sure that course evaluations are always performed, preferrably as survey sent by e-mail. Make sure that all teachers are familiar with using Studieportalen to provide information and for students to hand in assignments.»
- om det är nödvändigt med dessa obligatoriska kurser.»
- In some classes, there should be slightly less project work. It seems that some projects are unnecessary in order to acquire the knowledge from the course.»
- How information about the master programme reaches the student. The first information before starting is too little and doesn"t explain how to make your choise about courses. Not sufficient information (and too late) about how and when to choose courses when you"re in the master programme, and also too little information of what the courses is about before you make your choise. I didn"t think that normal things as information should be a problem in a school like Chalmers, but I"ve been disappointed about this many times since I started my education here. The administration is really bad. Besides that, course evaluations are not present in every course. That should be the natural way of investigating how satisfied the students are about the courses, but some teachers just don"t bother to send them out.»
- Some students have a very bad economical situation. Therefore you should avoid (if possible) expensive books and instead do compendiums of choosen parts of a book. The "Astrophysics and Earth science" course even had 3 books! A students economy should not limit the ability to learn. Also more trips to Onsala and labs at telescopes should be sceduled. More social activities for master students (especially the first days)»
- The courses "Material performance" and "Heat & Moisture".»
- Some courses in Electric drives, power systems, and elective courses»
- Organize and sort out the course literature. Create a clear web environment!»
- The courses, add some quality and some teachers that really what students to learn and not just see the teaching as a requirement to do research! Also, the courses need to be on a much higher level. If Chalmers is suppose to be the best technical university in Sweden the standards needs to be raised, and that substantially!!»
- The compulory courses! Remove Sustainble development and/or Energy systems modelling and planning. Just repition of the same things and no depth!»
- Research work should be more emphasized and more research work should be done in Masters level collaborating with Industry.»
- To think one step further. Today its just to repeat facts.»
- Reduce those free group projects.The projects did give students some idea of real work experiences. However,they are not so good for students who have work experience. »
- a course on building energy modeling and on sustainable building design.»
- Please make this program of 6 courses with each course with 15 Credit hours. And please please we have to create new projects for the students instead of teaching and giving the previous years prjects to the students. This shows like there is no work going on in Chalmers. So we have to make this course more effective.Think about this aswell!»
- ta bort global chemical sustainbility som en obligatorisk kurs. Skulle vilja ha större valfrihet, som det var nu var jag tvungen att taktikläsa någon kurs för att slippa undan en annan. 6 av 8 kurser är ganska mycket! 6 av 10 eller liknande ger mkt större valfrihet.»
- All other courses»
- See suggested course above. More suggested courses during optional semester.»
- Some mandatory courses are not more advanced than what we learned during the bachelors education.»
- The information should be more clear from the beginning.»
- The teacher in the modelling and simulation course (Paulo) has to change or he needs some kind of education in how to lecture and how to behave towards the students in a classroom.»
- Reposition the mandatory courses to year 1 only»
- the hardness of the coourses and difficulty to acquire points»
- The fact that when we were to choose out first elective course we got a list of six suitable courses, but due to schedule conflicts only one was possible.»
- 1.The way the elective courses are presented. We had hard time finding something useful, interesting and related to our program. Some were presented by program director but they were not enough. »
- The master programme should have industry contacts so that students don"t find difficulty in finding summer internships and jobs.»
- cooperation of swedish student and internationals. cause they dont pay attention on internationals. »
- I think quarter system should be change in termic one. in this way students have more time to study and do the assignments and learn better also.»
- Energy systems modelling and planing. »
- More understanding of how to verify large systems and the methodology to do so is necessary. There are also a few courses that need to be more focused on the goal of the master programme. Especially the spring verification course, more focus on the industry standard.»
- Study environment such as... (1) Clearly state the moral students have to keep. It seems like lecturere are not so responsible to make students stop chatting except questions regarding the lecture. Please be more responsible to make them silent during the lecture. Also Chalmers staff are not so responsible to use english or let students use english. Please be responsible for that. (2) Before the program starts, students need more information how to study at this program. How to study each course? For good understanding, reading the text book is mondaotry? Or just ask class mates and copy reports and programming codes? How to take balance between projects and pass exams? If it"s hard to do both of projects and exam study, what kind of strategy we can make? Concentrate projects during course, then take exam at re-sit time? It would be nice if students have opprtunity to listen to someone, like 2nd year students, graduated students, teachers, researcher graduated from Chalmers. The opening session by CIRC is not enough on this point. Faculty have to be responsible for that. WE REALLY NEED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also since I"m not good at english, I need to read textbook earlyer. Please fix the book and give us information during the previous quarter semester. (For Q4 course, need information in the middle of Q3.)»
- New teachers taught have just complete their Phd taught us very bad and i totally lost all my concepts that i had previously in that course. »
- too much matlab programming, I think C programming need also to be involved.»

- The mandatory courses should be evaluated, because I know a lot of people (including myself) that don"t like them that much. There are also too few courses to choose from in the program. Espacially to the autumn on year 2 where all the courses could be taken in year 1 already which doesn"t leave that much courses left to take. »
- The courses,, it is very bad well organized »
- The statistic course»
- Labs and projects.»

- Kurserna under första terminen kändes genomgående ganska tveksamma. Mycket repetition från tidigare kurser och föreläsare med MYCKET dålig engelska. »
- Students should be involved in research activities. Grades shouldn"t be based only in one examination. It should be based on graded task and examinations.»

- Since we have so many oral presentations, we definately need to know how to do them in a proffesinal way.»
- The workload is always too heavy in the end of every quarter, we have no enough time to prepare for the exams. Maybe we can think about change the grading system, not depends on the exam, but assign the grade according to the homework, groupwork and participation of the course activities.»
- example ..inIESD ..THERE IS NO COURSES related to VLSI system design ..for ex ..ASIC, MIx signal design ..we hve only analog and digital ..and aslos there shoulkd be link or connection between work in lab and lectures ...ex: methods course ..no connection between lectures, lab and paper presentation .... »

- ni måste höja ribban/kraven! Ambitionen borde vara att chalmers ska ha den bästa arkitekturskolan i europa. Idag är ambitionen att alla ska bli godkända, oavsett vad.»
- see question 34»
- Change the requirement of specific courses to a requirement of physics courses.»
- User-centered design course.»
- the introduction courses.»
- See above»
- Not starting over so much in the different courses. For example smith charts! »
- no»
- only one or two courses as i mentioned above.»
- preparation courses should be improved From experience, it"s shown that cell biology and programing courses are not enough to lay enough knowledge for students from different background. For computer science student, apart from cell biology, more courses in biology could be added such as molecular biology, genomics, phamacology For biology student, courses in database and information systems should be added, they"re basic stuff that they should know before working in other courses. And more custom track should be provided for student which has other background such as statistics, electrical engineering, etc. In this year those student were advised to choose cell biology course. But in that way it"s meaning that they miss an opportunity to learn programming, so when they got problem in quarter 2. Of course, they can manage to pass it, but it was difficult time for them.»
- The examiner in the course "Power Electric Converters" shouldnt be giving lectures since he has pedagogical problems and cant handle the english language. »
- - More practical exercises - More interactions with students during the lectures (for some of the courses)»
- higher demands on foreign students in english, writing etc. , not our job to help them with writing and so forth which was now the case»
- some courses about environment»
- Nothing»
- nothing»
- The project oriented courses related to development processes. This type of courses doesn"t work very well within such a limited time span. Maybe the courses can be put together as one, sharing the sample project across different development processes.»
- I was highly satisfied, so no need to change. »
- I have no idea»
- Perhaps including Nonlinear and adaptive control among compulsory courses. The workload in Real time control systems must be increased. This is currently bonus points.»
- Make it more attractive for students in the area of Building Performance Design.»
- The compulsory courses. »
- There should be applications brought into the program as projects or example to make ideas more tangible. Moreover, I think this can highly motivate students tackling problems and improve their abilities also deepen their knowledge.»
- There are too much repetition. Anders Lindvall aren"t capable of being in charge of a course. The administration in his course was a disaster!!!!!»
- There should be a change that can support PCB base system design»
- i dont know,i like most of it»
- IN CASE OF COURSE DATA ACQUISITION AND HANDLING IN SYSTEM BIOLOGY.THIS IS SOMEHOW DIFFICULT COURSE BUT THE MAIN PROBLEM WITH THIS COURSE IS THAT THE COORDINATOR OF THIS COURSE HAS NO CONTACT WITH THE STUDENTS HE NEVER REPLIED TO THE STUDENTS EMAIL REGARDING TO PROBLEMS WITH COURSE OR REEXAM OF THE COURSE IF HE DONT HAVE TIME THEN WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS COURSE.»
- Revise two courses as stated above»
- global chemical sustainability should not be a major course and also digital control should be revised along with experimental design which is rather too difficult...»
- N/A»
- Revise the compulsory courses.»
- Courses on offer. This programme does not offer realistic specialising options for anything besides imaging or tissue engineering. The same goes for options on Master"s Thesis projects, which comprises mostly of imaging projects only. I am having a hard time now looking for relevant courses outside Chalmers.»
- More technical focus in the Quality part. Logical thinking, math, matlab, technical creativity. Not just the fuzzy management things. Good focus on statistics in the Six Sigma Black belt program, but could be more. It is not challengeing enough.»
- Paolo falcone. We didnt know any thing about estimates from statistics »
- Research & design metdhos course should be removed»
- there seems no advanced courses in information processing. some courses of specializations seems a little far from the compulsory courses.»
- Nothing that I found lacking!»
- As stated ealier review elective courses to suit everybody ( not equaly but better).»
- nothing»
- Introduce some more advanced courses, I feel that some electives given are of no use. Instead it would be so good if some good courses related to what i am studying is provided. At least 2 more»
- Less exchange students»
- teachers that cannot teach in english»
- Computer lab in the basement (without sunlight)»
- Change the teacher in EDA397, or make it eligible. Second thing is to have higher demands on the international students. 50% of the ones I worked with don"t have the necessary skills in programming. In fact some have none at all, this is a big problem both for them and the people working with them in groups.»
- computer engineering courses should be removed»
- nothing.»
- More elective courses on different tracks.»
- In my opinion, the number of the projects should be reduced. Because, we are supposed to do couple of relatively small projects during each course. This many projects in one study year lead us to lose our motivation day by day. Instead, we might do only one, but larger project for each course which will help us keep our motivation higher.»
- The demands on foreign students must be raised. Both when it comes to previous courses and especially when it comes to English knowledge. I think all teachers should go through some sort of "teaching in English"-class. »
- It should be more industrial oreinted rather than subject oreinted.»
- More courses that prepare for future work»
- N/A»
- Computer Security»
- Some courses are useless and sometimes the method of teaching is awful.»
- Less load but better quality of teaching specially the boring presentations we have to go through each session is just of no use. Thus lots of students just decide to skip the lectures and stay home and study on their own. This means that the teaching system should be re considered!»
- the teaching is not so good and teaching assistant seem not so responsible.»
- some courses maybe, but not sure»
- more teacher time.»
- see below:»
- The courses at Northumbria University should be eligible and not compulsory.»
- I think, may be we can go more deep in to the subject, rather than knowing every thing a little.»
- Several courses that are to theoretical, and concept based.»
- The programme should evolve in such a way that it should have tracks for the second and third quarter. One should be able to select his track of specialization, and follow it. In my opinion, Nanoscience and technology is a huge name for the programme that is right now offered, since it covers only special paths of this broad science. It should offer more tracks in bionanoscience or chemonanoscience, suggesting the integration with other departments, or definetely change the name to one that suggests it only covers the covered tracks.»
- Building in society»
- lack of culture diversity»
- The mandatory courses»
- research design and methods. remove it or have the course during one period. The course is right now during two periods. the teacher put in way to much projects and work that during one period wouldn"t be possible to do. »
- The examination form. It was inventeded 200 years ago and it doesn"t prepare me for my future work in any sense. I would be a bit chocked if my future boss tells me that I am only allowed a pen and a paper and four hours on a saturday to solve my tasks. It"s not very fruitful. Raise higher demands on the students and the teachers english skills»
- increase the percentage of scores distributed to seminars and case studies»
- Hiring those "rockstar" designers from Kollision to give advice wasn"t exactly the best, as they have quite an attitude and do not always give a non-biased opinion of our projects in Interaction Design Methodology. Also having an intermediate evaluation and some clearer instructions of what is expected of the sketch would be extremely helpful. Might keep a few students from getting slapped with a "3" as a grade due to misunderstandings.»
- Nothing was bad. There were just some things that were less good. The research methods course and the economics of innovation course (which I understand has been changed).»
- Subjects for manufacturing technology should be revised. course on finite element method and a course in quality is direly needed.»
- It is OK as it is»
- Initiatives must be taken to create a stronger MEI culture so that people feel that they belong to a larger "team", not that they occasionally visit a place called Vasa where they attend lectures. By forging a strong "team" from each year of MEI-students, these will cooperate more in the future, and give new graduates better possibilities to get hired. Again, more case based learning would mean forging stronger bonds between the MEI-students since they would spend their time speaking, analyzing, reasoning about information instead of sitting alone by their computers writing a beautiful piece of text which no one will read. Another way of creating a "MEI-team" would be to spend more resources organizing parties or dinners.»
- goals»
- There are some unnecessary courses, i think they need to be changed now. In addition, very few teachers are there who can convey well in english. Other teachers need some english crash course in order to communicate well. There should be more resercah perspective instead of having one course of research methodology. »
- Tsigas»
- The lecture times should not be very early in the morning.»
- Classes in the morning at 8" o clock.»
- learn some computer programs better, for example abaqus (2 hours isn"t enough)»
- Nothing»
- Harder checks of students english abilities.»
- some teachers of distributed systems 1, 2 and unix internals »
- more lectures, much less group work, less articles to read»
- Project in applied mechanics.»
- There is a large need of more interesting elective courses!!!!!!!»
- The minimum english skills requirement needs to be revised, specifically oral skills. »
- Several courses could be more focused on actually giving useful skills and tools than just being orientive.»
- More research areas should be added to curriculum courses and thesis positions biological systems modeling and identification, neuroscience, cardiovascular disease solutions»
- The HCD course(mentioned above). I think this course is a must in the programme, but the way of communicating an dealing with the content (and only partly the content itself) were wrong. So to speak "letting students present the content to students". I guess this should be the task of the teacher. Then situations like unprepared students, who should present or students, which simply present badly, could be prevented. Also the project was unnecessary and badly supervised in this course. That the final grade only constituted of the final home exam also was unfair and unsatisfying.»
- the adminstration is so poor. information and communication is really bad. the students could be much more involved and there is so much capacity among the students that is not taken care of!»
- The system with only hand-ins in the courses is good, but needs more follow-up than is given now. The learning would be improved much if the lecturer talked the student through the solution of the problems after hand-in. Now, one never learns of the wrongs until after the course, when it"s generally forgotten. It"s ridiculous that people can hand in their solutions weeks too late without punishment. Instead, it"d be great if points were deducted to force people to hand-in, thus enabling the idea with showing solutions which i described above.»
- it should include some more background about design.»
- More cooperation with Northubria uiversity, closer contacts with students and changing some ways of teaching»
- The compulsary courses»
- Better planning of assignments and activities in the courses. Clearer evaluation parameters and expectations in core courses for final exams and assignments. »
- I don"t see anything specific.»
- Quality (for some of the courses)»
- The coffee...taste bad everywhere in Chalmers accually. Maybe its the brand or something,seems like everyone uses the same! :)»
- Everything is VERY oriented towards wireless communications. Not a single word about for example fiber optic communications, backbone switching or so, only wireless access networks.»
- just a few courses such as Developing computer-based systems in teams»
- More courses that gives the opportunity to actually develop the already gathered knowledge (from the first years at chalmers). Got the feeling that most courses was just more of the same thing (without doing it more interesting)»
- If it is possible, I like chance to work in real project of your life under guidance of professors»
- More core courses and less elective courses»
- Consider a more theoretical approach to machine learning in conjunction with or before stochastic optimization/neural networks. It would be rewarding. Robot course was somewhat erratic and unclear.»
- more information about the programme and all its courses, structure etc, and a tour of/ introduction to the facilties i.e. libraries, admin offices locations, workshop, studios etc.»
- more work with the abrod students »
- The information about what courses to shoose must be improved!!! It seems like the programme administrator doesn"t know enough about the elective courses. An example is the FEM course which I allready had taken during the bachelor, which was presented as a applied version of the one I already had taken. This was not the case, the courses was very simmilar, only difference was the use of FEMAP. Ofcourse FEM is the same theory but the focus could have been put on concrete examples, strenghts, weaknesses, when to use fem and when no to. Simply a more practical version of the course given in the bachelor programme.»
- 1.Research design & methods course- more emphasis on numerical analysis required 2.Economics of Innovation course - The lectures should be more clear and understandable (First course of the program) »
- More practical activities should be included, especially those connect to the industry.»
- lab environment»
- Not to be changed. Just suggestion: Can have more interaction between fellow students and seniors of our own programme.»
- Some assignments and labs should be more practical.»
- The mandatory courses, they are ok but i would rather be able to choose them out of interest. Now i feel that i waste a lot of time on something i don"t want to do which shouldn"t be the case on masters level.»
- The demands on the examinations and on the courses in general. »
- More space or place to commninacte with fellow students»
- The course given by several lecturer should be organized better.»
- same as the previous one.»
- Assignments could be reviewed to be proportional to time available.»
- Program koordinatorn eller åtminstone hennes inställning. Det är bra att man kan välja miljö kurser men det måste komma fler kurser som vi kan välja mellan som är specifika för just vårt program. »
- The GRADES - please remove them! Compared with the bachelor education (where we had on "passes" / "not passed") if feel that the grades has: * Increased competion among students and therefore decreasing cooperation. * Decreased the will to invent / experiment / research (beeing creative). Instead students tend to "play safe" and the general outcome are more uninteresting standard projects. * Making the "climate" between teachers and students much colder. Before we felt like coleuges now I feel everything I do is judged. THIS IS VERY SERIOUS! Other "creative" educations don"t have grades and there are reasons why, some of them I have listed above. »
- Lecturer for Agile methods and Software architecture»
- Must have more feedback, or better course litterature. Also important that the courses offered connect management to the construction industry. Not as it is now, teaching them seperately.»
- nothing really»
- The housing student should be a 7.5 cts course instead of a 15 or even 30 credit course. Master programme in architecture should allow the students to develop an architect thinking academically instead of training to be a nice builder and worker in an building office. The master programme should be changed and improved to international level.»
- The information systems course.»
- I explained about it before»
- Decrease the number of compulsory courses, for GOD sake. »
- More team projects.»
- more open and flexible for everything.»
- --»
- That most of the time has three courses going on all the time. This makes the study very unconcentrated.»
- the programme should adjust more to international standards. more courses, bigger challenges. »
- no»
- Some the courses in the Interaction Design Track needs some serious rethinking (User Centered Design)»
- Closer co-operation with related masterprograms.»
- the first spring term»
- More flexibility for course-picking.»
- increase range of compulsory courses ,we have just 8 course that we should select 6,if some our other courses that we are really interested in them and they are elective become compulsory selection would be more enjoyable.»
- Diagnostic imaging. Too many imaging courses in this master program»
- I think there should be a wide range of courses to be chosen as compulsory courses. »
- No»
- some courses are too slow and not organized well enough»
- work load and number of assignments»
- I should never had chosen Stochastic processes in physics, chemistry and biology. I somehow got the impression that the only option was to chose between that one and Information Theory. If I could turn back time I guess I would have chosen Machine Learning instead.»
- clearer what you need to do to get a masters degree and and/or engineering degree. »
- Some teacher who can be great in research but cant deliver information . or cant even encourage students to search for information . »
- better courses. I shouldn´,t be possible to get three points from full point on a exam i tou study 5 hours a week in a subject. and I am not the most inteligent man among the students»
- The Agile project was very good ide, but then must the supervisors know the programming language and be able to help when the project group are stuck with programming issues.»
- mandatory courses»
- Better information about the Newcastle trip but the courses are fine as they are.»
- IVC, open innovation, applied ICM, advanced ICM»
- There is a need for improved English skills among some teachers. The cooperation with the student centre is really bad - at one time I have sent three e-mails without response. That is not ok. Last fall, we got the information about selection of courses four days before deadline. Really bad if you want to do an informed decision.»
- Research Design Methods!!!!!»
- Get some more own courses and not trust that other master programs courses fit to our education. Like Applied Mechatronics. Product develompent need to have some more courses with Technical background. What i am feeling when i am coming from a farm and have been working in the industry is that many people in the class doesnt understand different ways to put things togehter. They dont even know the difference between a bolt and a nut.»
- Think that the progam must be better structured. We do not get any information about comming courses and when asking the responsible persons don"t have the information. Malin is good but can"t not handle all stuff she has going on...she is totally stressed out.»
- Bring more cohesion in group activities»
- They should find a way to support International student with Master thesis. It seems always the best master thesis with interesting subject is for Swedish students.»
- maybe we need more workload such as home assignment, lab, ... I think the workload now is quite low. »
- no opinion»
- The think the way the different courses are scheduled around the year could be better. Some quarters there were not many courses that were interesting for me while in some quarters there were too many that i wanted to attend.»
- I think the number of visiting lectures is too high this number should be decreased. »
- SHIPS MOTIONS AND WAVE INDUCED LOADS SHOULD BE CHANGED! »
- It should be in a more advanced level. The courses should be more integrated (they are all very separated (and have been so during my whole time at Chalmers)), more applied, more problem-based learning. We should have had evaluations.»
- It need to focus more on what we (the students) will need when we graduate! It will need more resources per student. I hate being told off with "that would be really good to do, but we do not have the time to do it", even for quite small suggestions.»
- no»
- Making courses less abstract. See where it can be applied in real life.»
- The real contact with companies and real practises in them»
- The structure of courses are in some cases very poor. The teachers set dates for deadlines as the course progresses and changes are often made in such extent that it can not be acceptable.»
-
- The compulsary courses should be at close together so you can study full time at Chalmers even though you have been studying abroad. Accept fewer students.»
- no»
- More information about elective courses. Good information the first year but no information for the next year. Even if it"s the same you forget about them. Further the workload could be a little bit higher. Compared to my previous three years it"s less to do, or maybe it just feels like that because the number of lectures and other lessons are fewer now.»
- Many of the international students do not have the background knowledge that is needed for the courses, do not know how to search for scientific information or how to write academic texts. It is hard to work together in project works under such conditions. The prerequisites should be tougher. »
- Class sizes are too large in most cases for meaningful, thought-provoking interaction among students and between students and staff. It is the rare lecturer who can engage 50+ people and provoke and moderate high quality interaction/discussion. Some classes are designed with smaller sessions for discussion, but the quality varies depending on the staff leading the group and the group composition as well. There is a fair percentage of students who don"t seem to be particularly motivated to excel or to participate unless absolutely required.»
- the material mechanics course»
- Production corse»
- Overall a higher level. You are supposed to learn something during your Master programme»
- Out of date professors with little motivation »
- becoming more practical and more attendance of teacher »
- the program as a whole is great and very useful and practical. there are 2 courses in my opinion which should be revised. these courses are either not relevant or does not have a strong overall planning.»
- Some courses can still be improved»
- The CAD courses»
- The Photonics and Wireless tracks should be separated earlier. »
- The scedule of the course could be change as students have two chances in a year to take certain course. It means some important courses are held twice per year. »
- advanced vehicle dynamics »
- Bad Lecture book of some course without good structure»
- 3th semester of the program was out of focus. all pd students were choosing entirely different courses from each other. »
- I think heat and moisture engineering course does not need to be compulsory for the students who follow the Structural engineering branch.»
- More elective courses to choose from!!!!»
- Move Applied Industrial Ecology earlier in the curriculum.»
- To make sure that the students from I get the possibility to develop since the masterprogramme is thought of as a master for these students, otherwise don"t accept them!»
- Data acquisition course, Some more laboratory works, more try to be familiar with the companies and job hunting definitely for foreigners who can not speak Swedish. »
- placement of courses»
- Global chamical engineering»
- More project work, especially relate to reality. The english ability of teachers should be enhanced.»
- Revise the scientific material used in the courses (articles etc.). Much of it is very wishy-woshy and doesn"t seem to be very scientific and empirically reinforced. »
- no opinion»
- Magnus Holmén, he is not a good teacher, he has unreasonable goals for the students and a crappy attitude, bad english. Both his courses in the program should be revised! They do not hold in comparison to other courses.»
- Assessing sustainability - clearer instructions. GIS - more teachers, individual work.»
- Grading system for some teachers are not so clear before the exam. It is better teachers explain what they really want for the exam.»
- the syllabus and some teachers »
- Whit my honest opinion I have to say that Sven-Arne Andreasson is not a teacher.»
- There must not be any more lawyers than possible groups. (max. 6) And we should have less lawyers teaching as well. »
- The students should have professional expirince before attneding this programme so they can contribute.»
- assignments »
- Add some more courses to choose from.»
- More information!! More information example we have not got any information or presentaion of the courses in the fall»
- Reorganization of the microwave project course. Great idea but poorly conducted»
- The organization is really bad, the guidelines and planning for the master thesis must be much better»
- the 2 mentioned courses. »
- Heat and moisture Geotechnics lectures»
- I would have appreciated less carbon propaganda and instead of keeping up the infected debate by taking part (the red line in the programme was that carbon dioxide was the greatest threat ever known to man), offer an objective view of the problems with different views taken into account.»
- nop. it works well.»
-
- Work load on group works should be reduced, in order to let a graduate student have more time to spend on literature study and research»
- well not definitely, see below on question 36»
- --»
- göran svensson organizes program meetings every 6:th month, which is very good and popular amongst the students, but for the last two meetings, only ONE teacher has been there!!!»
- Something that goes for all of the main courses and papers is that there was no constructive feedback as to how we can improve our performance. One exception is Karen Williams who always gave extensive constructive feedback. The whole layout of the second semester and the courses of the second year (all of them).»
- Less project based courses and more written exams. Harder prerquisite on programming skills.»
- Organization in some courses.»
- Move "material handling" and "lean production" so it is possible to take them both, without exceeding the 100 % study pace. Maybe make them mandatory as well.»
- Too many elective courses.»
- Students should get more options of courses.»
- most of the teachers should be changed. there is 4 teacher for this program. one linguist, one environmental eng. one architect and just one construction manager. 2 courses are offered by linguist and she has lecture to other courses as well. as construction manager we do not need linguist, environmental eng. we needed more construction managers, or project manager.»
- Improved the new courses.»
- Make sure that the students who apply can communicate in English. Inform about special prerequisits, like knowledge in MATLAB, at a early stage in the programme.»
- It can be to much repetition sometimes. Often same things are repeated in several courses. »
- Lecture by the Researchers in stead of the Professors.»
- Compulsary courses»
- The structure and options for courses.»
- The teachers are really lazy. They are not providing us with enough materials because "it can be found on the web", it isn"t that easy to find stuff on the web when you"re a new to the subject.»
- none»
- Construct a decent home page! Many other master programs have a very good home page with all information gathered in one spot. MPSEN seems to have the information spread out on all sorts of different sites. This became very apparent when I started doing my Masters Thesis»
- some teachers. They are not spending time on the students and have poor teching skills. »
- Course evaluation should be taken so much into consideration .There were courses that have been so badly critisized (like Heat and Moisture course) and yet..there was no change .. things turn to be worse after .»
- The AI course should be revised.»
- I don"t know yet»
- some courses. »
- Require an entrance exam to be sure all students have the knowledge needed to go through the master programme. During the first year it has been very clear when doing project work that a lot of students dont have the knowledge to pass the courses, this usually ends up in 1-2 persons who has the knowledge has to do all the work in a laborition/projects meant for 4 persons. In that way most students usually pass the courses, but not in the way they should.»
-
- Courses should replace into those which have practical hand-in knowledge,specially concern with Commuiunication and Network»
- increasing practical aspects of courses and decreasing repeating theories. Focusing much more to reach some experiences that will be useful in job space.»
- More flexibility with elective courses (no schedule crashing)»
- The optional courses, administration...»
- the time crashes between courses (even courses from the same program)»
- Take away the Information Systems for SCM course. Increase the level - try to find new knowledge and deepen old knowledge. »
- Algorithms - optional not compulsory.»
- The courses should have more prerequisites. Why have a String theory course that doesn"t require QFT? Why have a Beyond the Standard Model course that doesn"t require you to have studied the Standard Model. You are just doing the students a disservice by letting them choose courses that they cannot understand.»
- Claes Caldenby never participated in our activities nor gave us any lectures - why is he listed as the responsible teacher?»
- They can be more specified in one field instead of covering 4 diferent fields( Power systems, High voltage, Electric drives, Power electronics )»
- nothing»
- no comments»
- no comment»
- The time for project work during every course is too short which should definitely be increasd to avoid overburden and stress on every student»
- *Order of courses, R&D stategy and organization is a bit too intense to be in a period with 1.5 other courses - great otherwise. Research design and methods should be first, and compressed to 1 period. *The elective courses is a joke compared to the organization within the MEI-core courses. Present more or better options. And, even more improtantly, inform the students about what choices we have and what consequences that may give. * Cooperation between teachers really could be better. For example regarding overlapping dates with handins on same days etc, but also that some classes are basically identical between courses. Know what the students already know, and build on that, instead of going in a new direction every time.»
- no comment.»
- There is no definate answer to that.»
- The responsible ones have got a special survey regarding this...»
- ACAD - good thinking but bad structure»
- Maybe more core subjects should be added.»
- The involvment of Bertil Gustavsson. Or he could take a course to learn empathy and to listen to other people.»
- courses and contents»
- Image Analysis for the Biomaterials track maybe eHealth and Diagnostic Imaging»
- product planning and market analysis »
- More international student would be perfect.»
- a compulsory course, logic in computer science.»
- there should be a specialization in Antennas also»
- more emphasize on year 2 - the weakest point of the MEI»
- Number of instructors should definitely be increased. »
- Extreme total makeover of "Data acquisition and handling in systems biology"»
- More use of cases in teaching the courses. Improved English skills of teachers. Much more number and data crunching should be introduced. We shouldn"t just learn about things, we must learn how to apply and use things!»
- better course scheduling to be able to take more interesting courses at the same time»
- Better Laboratory facilities (at least for my programme.Especially in Power control and operation.»
- Too many safety related courses! Instead of them, fatigue and tribology can be added into the schedule.»
- nothing»
- Not really clear for me, but nothing is perfect.»
- There need to be some sort of requirement on English skills for the foreign student. As it is to day some of them are impossible to work with due to pore language skills with takes a lot of time from the teaching and makes the educational level decrease. There also need to be good information from the student centre about different courses etc. As it is today it is none existing witch is NOT acceptable. »
- Revise some of the courses and encourage to exchange between universities.»
-
- the courses have to expect more from the students, not in the amount of work (because it is heavy) but in what we are expected to know. It feels like I am repeating my first three years! the level of education is lower than in some bachelor courses. You have to expect that everyone knows as much as the student from Chalmers Industrial Engineering, as it is a master program for them!»
- no opinion»
- Some teachers dont speak sufficiently good english»
- I don"t know, I think I was very satisfied with everything.»
- In some periods (lp4 especially) the most intresting courses colide. Move some of them to lp1/lp2 year 2 instead.»
- The PLM course should be placed in lp4 year one, so the ones who wants to study abroad would have a possibility to do that..»
- the english level of the teacher´,s, some of them are very poor at english.»
- The title.. unfortunately it has only little to do with Networks and mainly focuses on programming and distributed issues.»
- N/A»
- read no.22 and also the project work in in the timber course should be smaller. The planning of examination days should be much better, reassuring that the examinations dont collide.»
- Too many interesting courses during spring term and too few during autumn.»
- The programme coordinator»
- More deeper courses.»
- Nothing»
- It was hard for some students to go to IVF Swerea to have lectures in ceramics. But i think it was good to be there.»
- By trying to make it available to anyone, level is such that a Bachelor from the I program seems unnecessary. Could use a course on international relations.»
- nonlinear and adaptive control realtime control systems »
- The teachers were not so good and experienced. Except 2 teacher for biomedical instruments and bioelectromagnetics. »
- The course "HVAC" include too much things for a too small period, there are some overlap between the courses "sustainable development" and "sustainable energy futures", the learning outcomes for the course "heat and power system engineering" should be revised.»
- Remove the MTS course (same requirements for all students, foreign or not), compatible timetables between courses, laborations should be scheduled beforehand.»

36. Do you have any general suggestions for improvement of Chalmers Master programme?

- Change the selecting of courses strategy. In all universities I"ve been into, they have fixed schedules for all courses. When the student does the selection, they cannot choose subjects that have any kind of clash. »
- Improve the welcoming of students from other countries than Sweden. Some of these students still buy printerquota at the library since no one has told them how the computer system works at Chalmers. Over all, the information about how things work is poor for students who have not studied their bachelors at Chalmers.»
- No opinion»
- See question number 35 and in general I think that there should be set a minimum demand on the knowledge of English, both in writing and talking, on the foreign students since they drag all of us down when they do not even have the knowledge to have a normal conversation or write a simple report!»
- Harder control and consequences for cheating. There is a lot of report writing and a lot of students copy text from the internet without penalty. It should not be possible to pass a course by cheating.»
- Better pedagogical ability from the teachers, better english speaking teachers. Harder prerequisites from foreign students, it is very shifting knowledge level on different students. They are very ambitious but some of them lack many of the main aspects of knowledge that we got at Chalmers bachelor-programs.»
- No»
- No»
- Keep group working aspects, but remove the extreme dependance on it!»
- That would be a good idea to help student to pick up their courses.Sometimes we choose a course but we don"t have any idea of what will be in this course»
- Improve ENGLISH! Improve/increase communication between different courses - to avoid overlapping. You can not start every course with "what is sustainable development?" eventually - you will stop listening...»
- Make it more coherent. Check with previous courses to see what has been done.»
- Have a language check for exchange students»
- Better introduction into Abaqus (FEM)»
- I think the level of the courses has been lowered too much. Students who has a Bachelor degree in the same field can feel that some courses are repetition to a large extent.»
- There might be room for improvemnets of the used examination methods. A more equal distribution between home exams, assignments and ordinary written exams. »
- Try to find more connections to the industry/real world, show practical examples of what kind of jobs that one can get after taking a certain MSc. »
- Some courses with heavy practical orientation lack, indeed, enough pratical/laboration hours during the term. Could be related to lack of assistants to the teachers.»
- More electable courses, very controlled way through the Master Programme. More information on electable courses from other Master Programmes that can be choosen.»
- Fewer exchange students, or at least not being forced to work in projects with exchange students. A huge amount of these students (mostly asian student) have never worked in projects before and have not written any reports at all. This puts a very large workload on the swedish students.»
- They are in good level»
- A little bit more clear exact what courses that is needed to take to get a certain master degree. »
- International students should have better english knowledge and introduction course in how to search information in the library (compulsary). Many international students have been a burden for the rest of us in projects.»
- Get in contact with workers outside Chalmers, to get more opinions from people that work with things we could when we get a job»
- More continuously meetings with all master students in the program. »
- INFORM THE STUDENTS ABOUT WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO TO GRADUATE. Seriously, you suck. The student centers don"t seem to know or care. Important additions were made to the requirements by reclassifying courses from advanced to basic level seemingly retroactively in MPBME. This is unaccesptable and I hope someone starts a full process against you because of this. In the end the only way to get information about it is to go directly to the master programme coordinator and watch a new ppt which changes every time. (I make sure to ask at least every 3 months)»
- Decrease the number of compulsory courses. Also, it would be good to have the topic of the master thesis sooner, even in the beginning of the master because then it would be possible to select elective courses that will help when working on the thesis project. »
- Introduce more options on how to solve problems. For example the project could have been solved with a microcontroller. For example the verification could have been done with other tools than Modelsim.»
- i think the phase transformations course should be given in the first semister»
- - Apply higher requirements to select students: How does it come some students in CS, no matter where they come from, do not know Object Oriented Programming concepts and/or Java? We have used it in almost all the courses, selecting students who know it might be a good idea. Otherwise one ends up in a group where s/he is the only one who can do the labs... - Same but for English level: Some students do not know how to properly write/speak English. A 90 TOEFL score should be a minimum.»
- I see languages as invaluable tools for communicating, but not as a goal or requirement for the programme. Consequently I fail to see why I was repeatedly denied speaking Swedish to Swedish tutors when working in Swedish speaking groups.»
- There should be some sort of forum to discus the Master Program, similar to the "Programråd", where teachers, students and industry can have their say. »
- Tougher demands on English skills etc. Many students, mainly foreign, didn"t have the necessary English skills and didn"t know how to write reports etc.»
- I think the master programmes coordinator should pass on more information regarding masters thesis work. Everything was handed out late, and information was not complete, e.g. that we at all had to book oral presentation times, and where to do so. Since Chalmers has the worst information flow ever, this responsibility should be handed to the programmes coordinator in my opinion. »
- Get SmarTeam to work and use it during all projects, if PLM is seen as an important subject (I do)»
- Do some QA on the teachers, if the studends of this programmes would write code that are 200% better than most of the "teachers" they would have to look for a new job after their first assignment!»
- A better introduction to chalmers for non-chalmers swedish students. If there is one, I never got that info.»
- add more optional courses related to the purpose of the programme.»
-
- Introduction day/evening to get to know the new students and get a better "class feeling". »
- Please don"t accept students who don"t speak english! We have chinese students in our class that admitted that they do not speak enough english to understand the powerpoint presentation that the teacher was showing, and asked if she could use more pictures so that they can understand it better! Whenever we do group assignments with the chinese students, we do all the work because it is impossible to communicate with them to make them understand even the task.»
- Have a corporate internship»
- Always mixed grops and feedback when there been groupwork. Is a great difference in ambition within students, and speciellt within the masterstudents. (Some students just come here to party). And also focus on cheating. Some of the exchange studnets just copy text from the net for use in project work! -Give info on arrival that that is NOT OK!»
- The administration has to be better. It is not sustainable that a student has to send 2-3 emails and visit Student centre Maskingränd 2-3 times in the same matter.»
- Better information and ranking of courses on the student portal.»
- The courses should give deeper knowledge. They are too general now! »
- I have not had any problem so far but I have heard that in some of the courses, especially GU courses, the teachers talk Swedish...»
- You have to make sure that the teachers speak proper english!!! And this goes for assistants and postgraduate students as well!»
- A webpage that is more easy to navigate where we can read about all options that we can make since the people at the students centre never know anything. I would like to have links to suggested master thesis work when I read about the master programs, links to the Energy devision that handle my education etc.»
- Maybe shorter breaks (10 min instead of 15)»
- Test "hard facts" more on exams. »
- More measurement techniques and practical circuit design.»
- the english knowledge from international students and teachers.»
- The information for students at Chalmers homepage needs to better organized (linked) and don"t have some information only available in Swedish.»
- No.»
- Maybe one or two more courses to choose from.»
- I really think that the staff who decide about applying people are not very familiar with level of universities in different countries and it gives rise to issue addmition for students who are not elligible for this university and therefore undesireable variety in terms of scintific background in master programms . Also I think different master programmes should have different English qualifications for example managment programms need higher IELTS grade than engineering and generally the specified language qualification is not enough for master programms and seriously should be increased. »
- No»
- More social activites to strengthen the bond between the students.»
- SCM project course could be mandantory, since it is a good preparation for master theses.»
- Yes indeed. I made a wrong choice regarding box (programme), but was at least allowed to study the courses I was interested in. Having now completed almost an equal amount of general technology management, there seems still no possibility for me to turn into a degree which reflects the actual content. I wish Chalmers could, as a peripheral possibility at least, adopt a system similar to social sciences and business schools were students can apply for a degree reflecting their course content. I needless to say understand the purpose of strict programmes, but I also see I need for Chalmers to stimulate students to go their own way and to make it easy to to fit ones own pussle.»
- Better information of what needs to be done to graduate. Coming from another bachelor programme I still don not know if it is the rules from my bechelors programme or the rules from my masters programme that is valid for graduation.»
- no...»
- The information when coosing is to little from all mastersprogramms. It feels lika you are choosing what to do in the rest of your life and to do this you have a number of pamplets to your help.»
- N/A»
- Adapt the requirements when the level of dedication among the students declines. OR. allow us to pick groups ourselves.»
- Do not accept exchange students that do not have the required knowledge. They bring down the overall level of the education.»
- Coureses that benefit us i jobs, all jobs I see within the field are requiring skills we haven"t learned in the programme.»
- To more active place us in more mixed groups when we do a project. The programme coordinator shpuld start to inform the Students in the programme about the courses that can be chosed in the next semester.»
- I think that the courses can generally have a higher level.»
- An advanced course in thermo dynamics and transport mechanisms. That would help when learning advanced reaction and separation technology. Also for understanding CFD more easily.»
- The teachers should be more committed. Some students pass and get their assignments approved even though they should not. Many of the courses included the same material that was used in other courses of the program! »
- I was sad that the matter structure space unit and the urban studio changed location. It is good to keep the connections between the students to improve the designstandards especially of sus. dev.»
- See answer #35.»
- Mer och bättre informations flöde. Speciellt om de minorprogram som finns, för den informationen var bedrövlig. Dels gav studievägledarna ut missvisande information då de sa att minorn läser man sista perioden det andra året. Samt att informationen på webben är obefintlig. »
- To guarantee master thesis in industry would be a good option to apply the knowledge practically and at the same time an opportunity to learn professionalism.»
- I think the grading system should be improved,as most student feel it quite hard to pass with 3, 4 and 5. If grades are not changed then, the points in exam should be increased so that students have more chances to pass. »
- Examination should be improved. Most of the time exams are quite theoretical that needs memorizing. At this level more conceptual exams would be better instead of memorizing one»
- -Higher prerequistis of students (mostly concerned international students). In many cases they do not have the sufficient knowledge to attend the masters programe and in the end it is the students (I) that have to teach this students when we have group projects etc. This is the teacher"s job, not mine. It feels like the teachers hand this problem over to the students and the result becomes very bad becouse so much time is spent teaching some students general knowledge that you do not have time to deepen whithin the subject as if everyone have sufficient knowledge.»
- I think the compulsory courses data aquisition and bioractors were quite irrelevant. I really don"t understand why they were chosen. Another thing i think should be changed is that when a student chooses e.g. the biomaterials-track, he/she should be able to really deepen their knowledge by taking more courses related to biomaterials. I think it"s a waste to spend together a whole semester on compulsory courses that don"t contribute to their knowledge regarding biomaterials. The same goes for the other tracks.»
- The most disappointing point is that international students come to this country with no knowledge of Swedish language, but they find themselves in an Swedish speaking environment where every notice, sign, etc. is in Swedish on Campus. At least Chalmers can make this initial step by making everything bilingual. Besides, lack of a comprehensive support from Chalmers is annoying. There is just one registration and subsequent brief introduction session all in one day and nothing more! the booklet that is hounded out to international students are also unable to give enough necessary information. It means that, since Chalmers is the main reason for international students to come to Sweden it must provide them with necessary information such as medical care system, how to do in emergency situations, how to deal with immigration officials, How banking system and opening an account is here, where we can find Swedish language classes, how the transportation system works in the city and in Sweden, etc. These are some basic necessary information that can save a lot of time for a newcomer by holding some presentation sessions that are dedicated for this purpose. This is how things go in other universities around the world who has international students, but here at Chalmers even the student center for international students is not so helpful. This situation makes me conclude that international students are here to increase the numbers for Chalmers! beside joining their Swedish classmates on the 3rd year of their 5 years studies in order just to accompany them and help them to learn new things from other cultures to increase their competence.»
- More visits to companies and more connection to reality. »
- Have on-site english tests for all the students that should act as a prerequisite to start the Master programme. This would really raise the level of the programme.»
- More conection with companies and industries.»
- Keep attracting professors from other universities and countries. Diversity is good, not only in the student body!»
- have a dedicated Reception for each department(the one for all Chalmers is meaningless)»
- That the requirement in English for international student should be higher as it sometimes is difficult to collaborate with peoples that do not understand the basic english»
- Better overall information. Rules differ between the departments, are they suppose to do that?»
- The courses syllabi should be more detailed and say better how is the course and how hard (giving the percentage of failure to the course, the number of working hours expected, etc) We should receive more feedback of our work from the teachers. Learning from our mistakes is not encouraged enough. We have like not the right to fail. There should be more than one teacher to a course. This is sometimes the case but not always. Varying teachers makes the teaching have more diversity. Combining diciplines should be encouraged. »
- Less people should be in the program. The amount of people impedes the open discussion and interaction during lectures. Moreover there is no need for group work in every course. And when there is group work it should be better supervised. It is obvious that the amount of supervisors is not enough for the people in the course. There should be a better and fairer planning.»
- More Assignments that requires contacts with companies.»
- Accomodation stuffs for international students need to be improved »
- yes please the course should be more strict at extracting effort from students and must enforce more group work»
- More interesting courses that are closely related to the program topic can be introduced especially in the networking part. Not all the courses were closely related to the program»
- A small course in the beging that connects the diffrent students, other MPs have those things. »
- Tycker att man ska överväga om det verkligen är så bra att ha det på engelska, eftersom kvaliteten på undervisningen sjunkit avsevärt pga detta. Dessutom är ofta utbytesstudenterna rätt kassa.»
- Consider whether the aim of the master programme is that anyone with basic skills in a subject should be able to follow the program or if it should be on a advanced level for people who already have the basic knowledge.»
- The library don"t have many reference books and some reference books are not many.If chalmers try to improve the library it will be very good for students who want to spend more time on their own reading.»
- I feel like the program is more theoretical. I would suggest to have more projects and study trips so that the burden of memorising would be reduced»
- SET program had lot of elective courses but actually there were not so many courses to choose from - would be good to have a counseling of some sort that helps students to choose courses.»
- No»
- It should be more focused on corporate environmental strategy, since that is what students are interested in and want to work with!»
- Rise a bit your requiriments. Somtimes I got the feeling that everyone can do what ever they want (like when choosing elective courses) and you still graduate. This is a master, not a bachelor»
- New students to Chalmers really have to get a good start and more energy on social activities for the classes in the beginning would be beneficial. Many foreign students have a tendency to always come late to lectures (thus disturbing classes), have problems when working in groups and have big problems communicating in english. Therefore, it would be good if new students are informed how Swedish culture works and that it is mandatory with good english understanding and speach - we do after many reports and presentations in english as well as use english while communicating in groups.»
- There could definitely be improvements on the information about Master thesis projects. A meeting where some projects in relevant departments can be introduced as well as information from the Study council about practical things.»
- Greater emphasis on fundamental theory and overview of concepts. Involvement in part in current department projects atleast as an observer to boost interest and learning. »
- This is an excellent package when used well. Gives students a good opportunity to learn everything there is to learn. But, one should tighten the scope of this being exploited.»
- It´,s good to do presentations but it doesn´,t have to be in every course. Maybe complete with some courses where a project / home assignments can be done instead of exams. A day when companies can meet students in this program. Both to make commersial of the program and to help students with master thesis, summerjob & job.»
- dispite is great that Chalmers is not buorocratic, maybe some guidelines for internatinal students, sometime there are things which all the Chalmers students know but maybe are not that obvious for international students. (e.g. I was a bit shocked when I got in the exam and find out that you sit and write for 4 hours! people even brought cookies!). Or for exemple to find out what Chalmers teachers expect from us /in a report and exam.»
- Make it easier to choose courses from other programmes. Prerequisites makes it hard to take alot of courses from other programmes even though the actuall need for those prerequisites are not apparent.»
- Give the students better and faster information concerning modules and the Master thesis!!»
- Not really.»
- More connection between the courses and blockof elective courses to be able to build on to eachother, hard to have so much elective. »
- maybe a bit more stright talking»
- Better information on some courses. Not all even have a homepage.»
- Nope.»
- Make it harder!»
- Focus on fewer good courses rather than many mediocre ones.»
- more interaction between professors and PhD student with Master students.»
- Information about which courses you have to take etc available on the web!»
- Better communication to students regarding choices of courses, options and such. The minors were not even mentioned.»
- Better check-up if exchange students have the required knowledge to, study in english and the topic chosen. »
- There should be more options for doing a thesis within the school.»
- Change Phil»
- having a more practical approach toward the studies and improving the teachers abilities to transfer knowledge and having more high ranked lecturers. »
- Lärarna som ska undervis bör vara bättre på engelska, har bara haft tre som har varit bra»
- 1. allow more course options. even if those courses would not generally attract many students. It"s quite natural that some advanced or specialized courses attract too few student. The fact that a course is unpopular is irrelevant. 2. Maybe allow the student to do more than one master thesis, as long as they already fulfilled the courses requirements. Since, there is no wide selection of courses, Theses, are good way for students to deepen their knowledge in some area and provably demonstrate this knowledge and take credit for it.»
- Chalmers Homepage should be development more. More detailed and various information for each program are needed. I got little information from Homepage before. Homepage is the most dependent sourse for student who applying program. Now I realized there are few people in each course who have responsible for administratino and coordination. If Chalmers hire more people who can work on Homepage for each program, i would be great for both Chalmers and future students.»
- More interactions with the world outside Chalmers and AA, for instance, KTH and different companies»
- Considering the feedback of student immediately. That"s true that they should work on that to make it well-done before implementation, but so far after 1 year studying we gave some feedback in courses since we haven"t seen any improvement. »
-
- The communication between Chalmers and Northumbria must be clearer.»
- Only problem is with Curriculum and u make some irrelevant courses mandatory»
- Consider how much benefit all parts of courses really have don"t add things like an essay or a project if it won"t benefit the learning of the course subject. Advanced courses often have more parts than basic and thereby requires more time but the student does not have more time now per week to study than when he was studying for his bachelor degree.»
- No»
- May be add some cooperation with other universities.»
- See above»
- some teachers treat us as the swedish students.»
- Inform the students more in advace how much work this program really is. And as said above plan, communicate and give feedback on assignments.»
- I belive that there is less coherence and progression within the Masters programmes than before their existence. There is more switching between studios and ther isn´,t a clerly outspoken second year in all studio corses. This is a bit confusing.»
- Try to get the program a bit more narrow and specialized. I do not get distinguished enough. »
- The names for many courses are strange according to the ones which are common in the world. For instance, in structural engineering program we have two courses with the same name: Structural concrete and concrete structures if you translate it to any language these are the same, and i do not think i can convince any body in my country that i have passed two distinct courses about concrete structures. Addressing the courses with their international names is more appropriate for example in this case concrete structures I and concrete structures II is the conventional names for these courses.»
- No, sorry.»
- more information and communication related this research area..»
- I think that one of the most important (and reasonable) improvements should be to make sure that all students have acceptable english skills. In my masters program (QOM) we have many group tasks. It is very hard to be placed in a group where most peope don´,t master english. Further, when I apply for a masters program I look forward to improve my own skills rather than help others with basic english writing. In addition, many foreign student put a lot of effort and money into their studies in Sweden, and it is horrible to watch their sad reactions when then fail in exam after exam just because their lack of proper english skills!»
- Grading system of letter grades should also be adopted and should be there on the transcript as it will help students in applying for PhD in universities in US or Canada. »
- Everything goes really good, I am overall satisfied with the programme. The only thing that I think could be improved is the chance to get in touch with companies working in the field through conferences and meetings.»
- Find a way to make people shine, through unconventional means. Stop being a stubborn organization, getting off on withholding students, people could be more inclined to encurage each other, if lecutres were more encouraging. Most of lacking in quality is from bad attitued from fellow students, students who doesn"t seem to want to learn more. Maybe Chalmers should considering interviews, they would at least put people, which are not commited to an education, on hold. There"s plenty of people out there which could do a better job then the people that came to Chalmers, with a certain grade from high school. Chalmers needs to realize what the future holds and grow.»
- Keep on the good work!»
- Send teachers to English courses»
- The research given is all about language based security there should be research in the field of network like on bgp,mpls etc»
- A Master programme should be more difficult to complete than a Bachelor programme. The level is set too low.»
- may be some programs that can help those who might not have had enough knowledge in their bachelors degree.»
- Generally I think is good.»
- All courses are very free, it is only group work so some lectures or weekly meeting (like supervisions) are very important to keep the structure and feeling of order and organization.»
- This programme should be well popularized among Bachelor students in Chalmers.»
- is it possible to offer more joint courses which are given in collaboration of different department? It is really good to get to know what you have learned in a new and novel perspective!»
- Have some kind of introduction to writing for foreign students, how to make a technical report.»
- More math courese should be possible to select within the programme and some programming as well.»
- Now when extending the master with one semester it is very important to be able to offer good and relevant courses also for this last year which I think is missing. Also it is important to study abroad and the master coordinater can help the students much more by informing which univerity that has relevant courses that can be approved in the master.»
- As there are students from different back grounds so sort of zero semester is needed for brush up.»
- I would say it is perfect for me. I do learned a lot. If I had a chance to study in Stanford for one or two years, perhaps I could provide some good suggestions.:) I really appreciate IMP of Chalmers»
- Product development in a wider perspective. Not only user oriented products and come up with new crazy ideas things.»
- Better structure in the courses with more clear goals and more practical examples. I have not even touched a vehicle during this first year.»
- Separate Networks from the distributed systems instead there should have been a masters program of "networks and communications" rather then "networks and distributed systems"»
- No.»
- See 35.»
- More group activities»
- after finishing our master we don,t have enough job oppertunities. I request you to improve in that kind of activities.. »
- Teach presenting technique»
- Increased industry involvment (not just guest lectures, but perhaps also case studies, practicums or internships offered as an alternative to thrid semester)»
- My oppninion is that the core courses are the least good within this program and that the elective courses are the best and most relevant for the education»
- Give som teachers courses in english!!»
- The teachers of courses for both GU- and Chalmers students need to be aware of what a Chalmers course should include, eg. using studieportalen correctly, course evaluations etc.»
- There should be bonus points, for many subjects instead of examination there should be projects with sufficient time.»
- Change the project course.»
- More guest lecturers and company visits to get deep understanding of what is going on out in industry, and how applicable theories are in real world.»
- Written critics for every student in every course that do not have grades.»
- Work on the integration between student from different cultures! Don´,t just force them to work together, give support in equity area!»
- I think that Chalmers should tell about the master program chois in earlier. Many students are very stressed in their choise because they are not really prepered for choosing and they are nervous about how to apply and what the choise will do with the future. There can be a great improvement on the student portal if not only the courses for the master program can be selected directly. (now I have to go to origo to do my choise). There can be an extra row with where other courses could be selected through an search or browse function. »
- My suggetstions for improvement concern the first weeks. I can not beleive the embarrasment of the master program introduction in RunAn. Very unprofessional and sloppy! And as a former member of a "Nollningskommitté" i felt that there can be many things done to improve the reception of both new and "old" students at Chalmers. One of the things could be teaching the President of Chalmers to speak English. Another to incorporate the Student Union and the older students in the masters programs more.»
- Mer kontakt med företag. T ex göra olika "case" direkt mot företag.»
- Do more to attract people to apply for the programme!!! Think there are many who are scared by the electromagnetic fields and think this programme is really hard»
- Do you have any kind of english test for students from abrod? They can not speak or spell neither do they know basic english which a swedish student learns in high school.»
- no»
- Thereshould be more real choices for elective courses and more information on opportunities to study courses from other programmes / universities. »
- I would like to see more from the program administration during the semester. Come in ones or twice after a lecture.»
- Change projects for every batch. »
- 1) I had the opportunity to work real-time in an organization solving a problem during Six Sigma Black Belt Course. This opportunity should be made available throughout the program. 2) Scheduled one-to-one sessions with Prof"s to discuss opportunities and ideas, and develop relationships, especially for students who are genuinely interested. »
- The schedules should be more organized. When organizing activities involving companies , don"t send emails to foreigners when you know that they have no chance to participate or not welcomed.»
- No opinion»
- It is a problem somtimes to work with international students in group works. In some cases I have had to controll every single text that they have written because it is often copyied from the net. I think this lowers the quality of the education. Other wise i like that we get to know people from all parts of the world.»
- A better introduction to the program and to the class. Some masterprogram was away a whole or half day and made activities together. That would be good, because you are later expected to know all and work with different people. I would also be nice to do some more visits to companys. It seems like different master programs have very different budgets. »
- Sweden in general culturally very different than most of the foreign students home society. I personally had some difficulty in adapting to swedish society in general. This is the biggest problem I have faced during my stay in Sweden. Although people are mostly nice to me I have rarely felt I am welcomed in Sweden. This is a subjective opinion of mine of course. I felt like I owe to Swedish society in the begining because I was aware of my study is funded by Swedish tax payers indirectly. But later I feel like if Swedish tax payers would given a choice they would not choose to live in same society with me. So there is difference between being politically correct and real opinion/feeling in society. Whatever, this is not a problem directly related with Master" s program but rest of the problems are minor things. That was the biggest problem of mine during my studies. Thanks for giving me voice.»
- less students from other countries»
- In 15 courses during spring, they need to try to get better company projects. Many projects has not been suitable for the aim of the course.»
- Make Sustainable Energy Futures a mandatory course»
- no»
- I enjoyed the freedom to choose units. I think it is an extremely valuable freedom. I am making very careful choices about future units because I know it is will be invaluable to tailor the degree to my personal needs.»
- There should be stricter guidelines for foreign students speaking English and there ability to write reports and produce their "own" work.»
- The main issue for me is the environment, lecturehalls, computerrooms etc. The environment in the V-building, where most courses are held, are so poor that only from this reason I would not choose to study at Chalmers if I made the decision today. I also do recommend future students to chose other Universities with better study environment. So my suggestion is: Take the study environment problem seriously!»
- Communicate more. Build a decent homepage with information about courses and Master thesis.»
- There should be more interactions among the students.»
- no»
- Improve the courses is number one priority! Are swedish students going to compete in the international arena they need to have courses of higher quality and more inspiring teachers!»
- Question patterns of some of the courses should be changed. Some of the courses repeat the same questions again and again which is ofcourse lower the image of Chalmers internationally.»
- Smaller class sizes would be better. Higher standards for english speaking for student entrance. Higher expectations from the students. More preparation for conducting an academic study for the thesis project. Somehow increasing the inter-student learning of the areas of respective studies. I know there are student run groups that facilitate such learning opportunities.»
- If you think and consider the above one suggestions than You and me will get much more from this course. and finally I would like to tell about the search for thesis. There is no no no cooperation inorder to find the thesis in signals department. In other universities the teachers gave thesis to students and expects the students to come and take thesis and do some work. But In our department I myself have visited many many time and knocked the doors but no one cares if some one is searching for a thesis and need help. I think only few good guys cant run the whole department. So we also need to change this track if we want this convay of MPCOM to reach success.Thanks»
- vi fick väldigt dålig info inför starten. Vi visste inte att vi skulle göra kursval första dagen t.ex.»
- All courses can follow FKA196 & TIF040 exam system. »
- Some of the international students didn"t have sufficient prior technical knowledge and language skills. This leads to problems when working in teams and also problems for the students themselves. Put higher demands on international students!»
- No»
- Inlämningarna var oftast väldigt nyttiga och väl förberedda men ibland mindre och då kändes det som bortslösad tid.»
- Better information. Have more info.-days, be able to talk to teachers and such.»
- more practical understandings»
- Better english skills among the teachers.»
- 1.It is hard for international students to find a group to work with in projects since Swedish students bound together and then you are left alone and can do nothing about it. We had less problem when teacher decided who the groups are. 2.It is a hassle when it comes to contacting the student counselor. She is not always around, she answers emails with long delay and is most of the time in meeting if she is at school. Although they changed our student counselor the problem remained.»
- There 3 things I wish to mention: 1)There is no medical facility inside the campus. In case of any emergency there is no one to help or treat the student. 2)There is either no or very weak contact between industry and master programme to help international students getting good jobs. 3)Since the environment & the culture is Swedish dominated, it is very much necessary to learn Swedish language - Swedish language classes are not being offered at Chalmers but they are being offered in other universities in located in other cities. The language is the basic and critical thing to get a master thesis and summer job being in Sweden.»
- teaching assistants in our program are not so good griped on the specified courses, so to improve master program you mainly focuss on this factor as well»
- I think more connection between industry or study visit can be better to get better view of future job.»
- More courses within electricity (high voltage). Grid and hydro and wind power production.»
- How about working with other master programs in the project? »
- (Accomodation) I wasted of my time before coming Sweden to find accomodation even though I couldn"t find. To have good start is one of key for good study. Please prepare accomodation in advance for all students in advance regardless what kind of accomodation as KTH are doing so. (Help when students struggling with Swedish language) Here, almost everything is in Swedish, even the course results email. Please provide us to have oppourtunity to study Swedish, or please prepare help desk when we sturuggle to understaned information in Swedish.»
- Try to link this programme with the industry in a way that the projects during the courses should be from the industry.»
- enroll new students with good grades during Bachelor , they should be in good Bachelor university, better to have working experience.»
- Increase the communication with the Bachelor students!!!! The distribution of information about different programs is failing at some point and it is crucial to fix it in order to get more applicants to some programs.»
- A lecture about cultural differences - or maybe part of a course - should be compulsory at MEI program as almost half of the class came from different countries and lot of problems emerged after courses started. A good lecture on culture cang give valuable elements for more efficient teamwork.»
- No»
- Teachers should not be chosen only based on their level of knowledge. Their ability to transfer their knowledge effectively to the students should also be considered.»
- not yet»
- no»
- Make sure that the exam guards know English and make it clear to them that there will be people taking the exam that doesn"t speak Swedish and that they have to take all the information in English. »
- Maybe start some coaching from alumnis to interested students?»
- Yes a introduction session for foreign people for references, writing and learning processes. »
- NO»
- Yes, The quarter system of 8 weeks is not useful for at least international students. It doesn"t let you learn deeply and it just makes you nervouse during the whole quarter. I prefer to have less courses during the whole two years and instead have a whole semester to study them. I beleive semester system works better for master program. »
- More information such as prerequest.»
- Avoid segregation between Swedish and non-Swedish students.»
- I propose, like many other schools, have to track: one course based and one research based. Student can then choose based on their aims ( those who are interested in getting a job after master"s would probably go for the course-based track and those interested in PhDs most likely opt for the latter), or at least provide some grounds for master"s students to experience a more research-intense program.»
- I think that the whole idea of Master programs is bad. Since the teachers are not as good as teaching in English as they are at teaching in Swedish the quality of the education is reduced. Also, many of the international students are not used to working in groups and writing reports. Which reduces the quality of group assignments. The fact that some of them barely speaks English makes it even harder to cooperate.»
- Alla ämnen kan vara intressanta, det hänger bara på lärarens intresse och engagemang i kursen och studenterna. Skulle vara bättre att ha personer som bara undervisade och andra som sysslade bara med forskning. Vissa personer undervisar bara för att de måste och det märks tydligt.»
- could have more choise »
- Go and see students to inform them about important things especially for the master programme organisation. So far, I had no information about the master thesis except some I asked for. »
- Since Chalmers give admission to the large number of students each year,Some of the admitted students are not good enough and it affects the standards of the classes negatively.»
- Verkligen nummer 22»
- »
- More minitab software knowledge»
- It maybe a little better to help the students focus on the specific field which they are more interested in and provide appropriate suggestions in couse selection and so on, If the students can be assigned with a supervisor earlier, he seems to be more clear about what he should focus on and that will also benefits his future career. »
- subjects related to field of interest ...putting courses from many deprts feel not good for master student ..can concentrate on either analog or digital or people interested ..mix signal domain..»
- More connections to companies.»
- no»
- it"s good, but maybe the new system, sometimes both the teacher and the students are not sure what"s the plan.»
- keep the courses from the orginal programme plan, they could be interesting and helpful for the student.»
- ni måste höja ribban/kraven! Ambitionen borde vara att chalmers ska ha den bästa arkitekturskolan i europa. Idag är ambitionen att alla ska bli godkända, oavsett vad.»
- No»
- there is no time to study for the exams, as they are always held right after the courses end.»
- Not really»
- More information in a broader sense and more hands on experience before making the choice for master program. Maybe have a lab-day or a few lab days where students can get aquanted with the master program and conduct some lab-work or eqvivalent.»
- I hope our master program would provide more opportunity for doing master thesis.»
- i think the system is very good. Chalmers has a good system and i fully satisfied with Chalmers. I feel proud to be Chalmerist.»
- The oppertunity to choose cources in swedish. It ia much! easier to understand esspecially for "harder" cources! »
- The course should be revised to include more computer science aspect. Before attending the program, most student didn"t expect to be trained as bio-mathematician. (All in all, we recognize the powerfulness of mathematics and statistics, but the program still miss out computer science aspect to large extent.)»
- Some of the lecturers did not seem so interested in discussing with the students...»
- Building up more contact with Swedish Companies»
- I think that sustainable development course should not have an examination. The course program should be consist of a lot of student seminars or debates.»
- nothing»
- The most problematic period for international students was the first time we came here and had no where to stay. So if possible, Chalmers should help its students more about accommodation. »
- we need more information about courses before selecting coures»
- in one course were a company project is included, the project must be stated 100% with the company involved as well...»
- Better information about courses that could be relevant.»
- A quarter of seven or eight weeks is too short to learn subject both sufficiently and deeply.It would be more successful if it was planned for 2 or 3 study periods. I think, generally, the faster you study something the sooner you will forget it. However, the program is well planned. »
- It would be good to have sport clubs in order to make friends easier with people from other departments and share experience and have leisure time and not only study activities.Maybe it exist but outside of chalmers.»
- IN CASE OF BIOTECHNOLOGY ALL COURSES ARE INFORMATIVE BUT SOME COMPULSORY COURSES LIKE BIOREACTOR DESIGN AND CONTROL.THIS COURSE DEMANDS FOR HIGH MAT LAB KNOWLEDGE.BUT SOME OF US DONT HAVE EVEN THE BASIC KNOWLEDGE.SO THIS SHOULD BE MODIFIED OR THERE SHOULD BE SOME BASIC COURSE RELATED TO THIS.BUT TEACHER RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS CALLE IS VERY COOPERATIVE AND NICE TO THE STUDENTS»
- labs and exercises carried out through phd students were not good since much can not be gained and it was difficult to understand things so i think there should be at least one senior teacher also to guide through the exercises and labs. also the work load of the labs and exercises is too high ......»
- As stated above a number of free of choice courses is good. However, these courses should be in line with the program identity, i.e. in my case Management and Economics of Innovation. By having to many courses to choose from the risk is that the individual program becomes to "blurry" and lacks a clear path and goal.»
- I am generally satisfied with the Master"s Programme. If it could be relevant here, I really dont like classes at eight in the morning.»
- Make it more technically challenging. Many students background is e.g. Mechanical engineering i.e. relatively advanced technichal skills. This should NOT be a "Management-program" (learn the talk but not the walk). »
- The first weeks of the program really needs to be improved! Some social events! »
- better comunication between the teachers so the courses don"t have exams on the same date etc.»
- it is good»
- more project course»
- Maybe assignments/lab and project work should be also given some credit. It is so hectic.»
- I think the key is to improve the courses for year two. I felt there were not too many good options. Also maybe make the LCA mandatory.»
- None at the moment. »
- no,in general very good»
- Same as above, and some industry interaction other than having guest lectures. »
- Collect all the information in one place. And I mean everything!!!»
- more practical and relevant courses for real life as a engineer»
- More connection to companies which require people with a strong computer science background. Simply mentioning Jeppeson isn"t enough (maybe try and bring people from google/yahoo, and most of all other companies people may not have heard of).»
- Please, provide some simple general kid Swedish course at the beginning of msc program, even for just a few classes. That will help foreign students to know more about Sweden, much faster and more effectively.»
- The general workload between different master programmes could be looked into.»
- For me as a Swedish student, the fact that I have to study in English in my own country is lowering the quality of my eductaion. Of course, it is a very nice opportunity to practise my English and to meet other cultures. But these thing do not make up for the fact that so much information dissapears both when swedish teachers are speaking English and when I listen to lectures in English. All discussion are also being restrained by the fact that people feel unconfortable in speaking their second language.»
- More work related subjects»
- N/A»
- Some courses have extensive lab work, but the lab-work has nothing to affect the final grade. For an example the course Distributed Systems II, has very time consuming labs, but they have no weightage in final result.»
- Try to become the best. At the moment everyone in chalmers just says "We are the Best" But I think Chalmers is not as well as reputable universities in USA or Canada or even England or Australia.»
- Instead of overloading students with lots of useless assignments, improve the quality of what they are supposed to know.»
- A contact with technical companys on the market and a better preparation for students to find jobs.»
- add a swedish course in the beginning.»
- I think it is a good idea to join the SDCS and NDS together.»
- consider some courses, and students from different background, because now lots of people are from computer science»
- The freaking level of english skills needed to get accepted at the program. Preferably grade B or better in an internationally recognized test for advanced english, i.e. Cambridge Exam i Advance English.»
- No»
- Techers need to sit down and really admit to what is expected from a student that has been attending a 2-year programme within logistics. (for example INCOTERM!)»
- may be having common lectures/seminars with students from other universities»
- It should be possible to write master thiesis in swedish. The swedish companies will have limited use of the work otherwise. »
- more interaction with society and industry, at least in my programme»
- no »
- Induvidual projects, Integrational learning processes, Conceptual learning patterns, availability for different learning behaivors all these things that makes modern pedagogical methods so succesful. »
- beater info about courses in other programme»
- The students could be enrolled in teachers" research work in whole programme but not only taking the course in one and half year. Moreover, the Master thesis could be better proposed which could supply different choices for students on their own interests and it should be a good mechanism to insure student can get enough support and instructions for supervisor. »
- (Interaction Design Project) I"m not entirely convinced that adding "personality" to things brings such a value into them. Moreover, it introduces a lot of complexities and limitations in the projects one can possibly think on doing.»
- Things are going well. Keep on doing most of what you are doing!»
- Make a commitment to publish all the notices and emails in English as well if the target audience include international students.»
- International students need more apportunities to show their abilities. Most of the seminars, technical tours and summer jobs are in Swedish!»
- give us more chance to real work environment»
- swedish class like u have english class...»
- There is a large need of more interesting elective courses!!!!!!!»
- Several courses could be more focused on actually giving useful skills and tools than just being orientive.»
- criteria for selection, it seems that the criteria is low! especially for international students, the level of university is differ a lot,i think the coordinator should know the level and ranking of the international university in some extend and then normalize the grade average points, it has be seen that somebody with GAP of 16/20 from poor university accepted but a GAP of 14/20 from very good university didn"t»
- Add more research opportunities There are fer research ares available,most students can not find the interested areas and consider taking more courses and having a 3 HEC thesis»
- The information about optional courses»
- no.»
- The teachers should have more of an academic English language. When I compare it to Delft where I am now, the teacher"s English is worse at Chalmers. »
- See 35.»
- no»
- Felt unserious, reports were often very short and unclear what to do.»
- More involvment of companies»
- Should emphasise on high standard of English language, more interaction with all students in the programme, more practical knowledge, practice oriented courses, more deep study»
- More Industrial Visits»
- Someone should fix those USB"s in all the computer rooms in Physics building...it"s just a matter of luck to find which one will accept one.And the printers are difficult some times. A bit more maintenance in those rooms would only do good.»
- no»
- Do not admit those having less background relative to the program to Chalmers? I find a group of students even do not know anything but gain the credits.»
- I still cannot understand why the programme lies under Teknisk Fysik instead of Data. Maybe point out that there is almost no physics (except some loose Ising modeling) involved.»
- Clarify the master thesis administration»
- see above»
- There should be a library in Vasa building for the students, with all the text books used for management courses available for reading.»
- more open minded»
- Please do help we International Students to learn Swedish Lang in Chalmers. Thats very important more than what we study to step into our future.»
- Some lecturers need more skills and experiences of knowledge transfor.»
- More interaction between students and more exercises. »
- Provide more classes in English which are hold in bachelor degree»
- Open the homepage and give the information of the course beforehand intead of at the beginning of the quarter.»
- workloads are very high.»
- Se kommentarerna ovan. »
- More introduction (and later) activities with the other students in same master programme...»
- Structure Chalmers webpage. It"s kind of a heystack in the jungel now...»
- No»
-
- some students had poor prior knowledge in IT/programming which made it difficult for them to follow the other students. You might have higher entrance qualifications in that regard.»
- The intergration of Architecture programme and other engineering programme is not enough. The engineering programme in Chalmers is very famous and well-known internationally but not the architecture programme.»
- More site visits and project works will be really beneficial for the learning.»
- Try to build a real international environment if you want to play a great role even in the europe. you can learn from some American Universities in this issue. just speaking in english does"t provide international environmet»
- There are many suggestions. 1-A study counselor should be provided to each student so that he can provide complete guidance for the development of student abilities, capabilities, career and to remove the weaknesses. 2-There are so many interesting courses that can not be studied due to the overloading of the compulsory courses. So by lowering down the number of obligatory courses and giving more choices to us can help us to choose what we want to study, just like in some other universities outside Sweden. 3-In my opinion a Master student must be provide funding or financial support for his/her 1 year thesis project if he/she really needs it. I do not like that Chalmers research groups do not provide any funding for the master thesis at any cases to the free mover international students. It suppose to be the best institute in the Europe, but still this situation is quite desperate. In addition to that no single SI sholarship has been provided to a single student from chalmers. 4-Also chalmers must arrange for swedish language courses for international students, who want to learn. 5-There should be lockers availeable to the master students to keep their regularly used stuff within the campus. 6-A personal computer should be lend to a student who really need it, just like IT campus provide to every IT student if needed. I requested so many people to lend me a computer but everybody denied helping me in this regard even the IT campus. Atleast there could be a laptop buying policy for current students without any interest, if some 1 needs it. 7-There must be some workshops or short courses organized in pure summer season (June-Aug). Not every single student is leaving the university in the 1st year. 8-In written exams, papers do not have any choice. We have to do each and every question. This pattern should be changed in my opionion. 9-No positive or negative feedback is given on our course reports or projects, only grades are given. I think every single student must be given feedback for every report project after they are graded, so that we can improve overcome our weaknesses. 10- our course coordinator does not know anything about international collaboration of Chalmers with any other university outside Sweden. Please help them to have the knowledge. 11- There should be a new master program in the field of Medical Physics, Nuclear Medicine technology, Radiation physics and BioPhysics. »
- --»
- administration needs to communicate better to the students. »
- no...it is quite good»
- None that comes to mind»
- Improved overall planning and spread of information from faculty staff. Inform students to better extent of what choices are available concerning courses.»
- Restriction of number of programmes, programmes that have similar courses should be put together. Restricition of number of exchange students on the program because unfortunately, in my experience, they have to some extent lowered the goals of the program and thus hindered me learning everything I wanted. »
- merge GIBBS and CSE»
- Try to have the mandatary courses so they will not clash with electable courses. We who followed the biomaterial track had big problems. Some period we followed 4 courses at a time which is too much.»
- there are two compulsory courses to be taken in quarter 1 of first year. in that time new students do not know much things about the program and education system of Chalmers. so it will be better if such decision can be made later. »
- more study visits and practical case study»
- the evaluation of some professors»
- better information about tracks and specializations»
- It was very good to have a small trip together with the class»
- may be the university can play more role to help the Swedish students to cooperate more with the international students . to accept their work and trust what we do when we work togather . its quite disappointing if i do part of assigment and then my Swedish partner will just put it aside and do it again his own way .. it happen often with many students . »
- Ask someone from outside the program interview five students and listen what they want.»
- It is no point of having mandatory courses in a master programme that are in a field no one wants to read. If you want specific parts to be includet, they shold be incorperated into the track courses. There is also a need for more track courses in many programmes.The problem now is that they are to few so you have to choose to read courses in other fields.»
- Try to make it exclusive and benchmark it with other universities.»
- Make the requirements clear for exchange students - especially if we are forced to work together in big projects. In some courses there are projects which are 40 percent of the total grade, and the course administration decides on groups. This is not about wanting to "work with your frieds", but in some cases 80 percent of the time consists of explaining to exchange students how to write a report and 20 percent actually learning something. We all want to learn, it"s no kindergarden service!»
- renting is the most problem for foreigner student when arriving, if school could give more help about this, it would be much much great»
- The first semester with compulsary courses was crap. Sometimes it feels like Chalmers dont want their students to study abroad because the courses at Chalmers are "very important and much better" than courses abroad. This view is very strange. To study abroad should be encouraged according to my opinion.»
- Make all course PMs avalible even if you not are registrated on the courses.»
- Get someone that can structure the progam.»
- no at this time.»
- try to integrate local and international students more otherwise international students feel isolated by local students»
- more/better arrangements of study visits»
- give student more chances to real projects»
- A new track in webprogramming and creating graphical interfaces, different languages and patterns.»
- The teachers should definitely take more time making the courses more clear and structured.»
- More integration between the students in the different programmes. I.e. common lectures that relates to i.e. both industrial design and architecture, so architecture students get more mixed up with the rest of the Chalmers students.»
- Be more flexible with courses if students from Chalmers go abround in an exchange program from Chalmers.»
- some time table of related courses are highly overlapped.»
- The course FEM-applications and material mechanics should switch place in the curriculum.»
- Mostly touched on in question 35. Can class size be kept smaller, in some cases by offering the same course twice in once year? Are there applicant selection methods that can differentiate levels of motivation? Team project work often accentuates that there is a wide range of motivation - mostly quite good, but not all. Are there methods for teaching staff who are particularly excellent to share best practices? Maybe add a few more social events where students within the same or related programs will have more chance to interact, some including staff? How about non-credit lecture forums given 1-2 times a month in the evening, by professors, and by PhD students on their research, and add discussion time and even social time as well? One or two of these kinds of sessions could be a way to present an overview of the relevant research going on at Chalmers connected to the particular Masters field, with a summary of individual projects. Another could include "behind the scenes" tour of Chalmers facilities related to the energy systems on campus.»
- more technical subjects, more law»
- Relative to my other studies, I find that the students are spoon fed material far too much. Students should be required to do a lot more on their own time. Also exams should not be carbon copies of previous years, which I have found in several of my courses. Perhaps it is the nature of the university system due to no tuition, but I find people here are learning less of the material and more on how to pass the exam. The professors should do a better job of not letting this happen. »
- YES! the evaluation scores! FAIL/PASS is not fair! we need more edges!»
- 1. Equal educational rights and opportunities regardless of students nationality. 2. I think It would be nicer if the administration view students as opportunities. Occasionally, There is feeling that the some staffs see students as source of budget rather than motivated talents. »
- If there would be more chance to enhance cooperation between international student and the swedish. »
- increase the level of all courses more projects»
- No. It"s good now.»
- international students do not realize the importance of problem sessions or office hours in order to complete given project tasks for the first couple of months. we spent a lot of time trying to complete (mostly analitical) projects just by ourselves before seeking help.. that is what we are used to. we assume that the tasks can be completed with the exact information given which is not the case at chalmers most of time. so this could be a point that can be emphasised with the new comers in the beginning. »
- The program introduction pages (for new Master"s students) could have some links to course overview pages on the Student Portal. So, the prospective students can have a better idea of the topics covered by each course.»
- Better information about the program contents. Both before when you chose between the Masters programs but also in the beginning during the first week of the MEI program.»
- Make sure that the international students and exchange students have enough english knowledge and don"t accept copy-paste from them. They bring down the level to pass, since the examinator accept their work. I as a swedish student don"t feel like I have to do my best, because I will still pass the course since the level is lower then from the bachelor education.»
- A job in even though there"s a recession :)»
- Focus more on knowledge and less on learning-by-doing. You learn alot by doing stuff, but then you basically only learn the stuff your doing. Most course have nothing too teach and most of the time needs to be spent on stuff from which nothing is learnt. The computer graphics course is an excellent example of the contrary. Much knowledge to teach, teached from a person which can guide through the theory which own very valueful practical experience. This is completmentet by small exercises which are rigged so that minimal time is spent on irrelevant things.»
- No place limited of selecting courses.»
- Researchesh and producing science like directing students to work on their own in labaratories on new subjects of their filed to developing their idea and making papers is very poor. It is very important for them not just passing courses and doing course projects that sometimes are just time consuming and just implment the projects that teachers have been done. We do not want to be just engineers or technisians but we want to make ourselves ready for higher education and forwarding the science in chalmers like other North American universities. »
- More individual practial assignments.»
- no opinion»
- We are just students and we can only work so hard, why but so much work on us. Is it not the goal that we should learn and not get burned out? Iwould like a more interactive approach, with seminars, discussions and mabey case-sessions where the goal is to learn.»
- More information please!! Had no info at all of what is happening this coming fall-semester...just an email that we should make our choices...not good.»
- Welcome the students with introduction and get-to-know each other day(s), since many people come from other countries and don´,t know each other or the school.»
- Better information..»
- Too many teachers are bad taking english, they are not able to explain good enough they now one sentence how to explain in English in Swedish they would have known at least 4 different ways to explan. With more experience the teachers will improve but still I do think they need a little more support.»
- reduce the number of approved applicants for master program and improve the quality of courses and update them. »
- Should be more challenging for students»
- No.»
- Durring masters thesis there could have been organized meetings with all other studens in your programe for discussions and mingeling about the thesis work you are doing. This would give some support and fellowship durring this time where you are only 1 or 2 students working together.»
- More practical teaching in the building perfomance courses»
- Information is very important. Make sure all components (courses) offer sufficient information about the schedule, aims, hand-ins and examination in beforehand on the course description on the student portal.»
- I think the international atmosphere is a great attraction for me. You get to know more about how other people from different culture thinks. It"s a precious experience for me. However, I wouldn"t expect that there are so many internation students anymore when Chalmers starts to charge. But I think this is also good, at least for sweden, because not everyone is studying 100% hard if there"s no fee at all.»
- I think the content of the course can be deeper»
- Some better evaluation concerning some foreign students, those that only take some courses (not those that take the entire master because they are more "serious"). Some of them seem to not have proper education (or do not show it) prior to the courses, and this affect other students if group assignments etc.»
- some courses contain a little to much bachelor knowledge, courses: algorithms, programming language technology, logic in computer science, concurrent programming, functional programming»
- --»
- More information about thecourses, and more information about courses from other programs.»
- When course leaders and program coordinators ask for feedback they should listen to it and not become so defensive and»
- Even more work together with the industry. Hopefully, the school and the industry could work together to make shur that the students learns things that the industry needs as weel. Win-Win situation in my opinion.»
- I feel that both the workload and complexity of the courses was higher during the bachelor in mechanical engineering. The first course in the programme kept a good pace, but after that the workload was quite low.»
- Not really. »
- There should be mandatory internships like in French Universities.»
- I can say anything about others but in design and construction management it really needs improvement. most of us blame ourselves why we studied this programme in chalmers. we have just waisted our time. »
- It should be more specific, today it is very abstract and on a very high level. It is hard to really say what you are good at. The course research design and method is quite useful but definately not a master course! It should come much earlier in the education.»
- More homeworks and maybe small tests and laborations during the course. Now it is just set of lectues where everybidy is not understanding anything and sleeping and suddenly exam is coming. I fail all the time.»
- The lab hours/ project credit may be increased.»
- To see what market wants and try to integrate it into the programme. Exercises and projects that can be carried out for real cases in companies or field sites should be the ideal to make students to reach a level of reality work conditions and get some practical experience using the already theoretic knowledge they have.»
- The course assistances through out the programme have been really bad, they totally lack of pedagogical ability. Specially in the algorithms course, the exercises where not even worth coming to. You can tell that they don"t want to be there, that they have been forced to do it.»
- maybe more practical work will help a better understanding of what has been taught»
- make it shorter. some new teachers. »
- All of my courses whithin CSALL are great. But I took two electives from the Software Engineering master: Software Architecture and Developing Computer-Based Systems in Teams. These are the worst courses I"ve ever taken. The lack of organization was tremendous, the teaching abilities were depressing but there was A LOT of work required to pass. I"m very disappointed with these two courses. »
- more study trips I would say »
- Hmm being an international student i felt immense work load»
- not really. except of some changes in the program course outline»
- The administration of students who wises to study abroad. You have to find all the info yourself and you have to fight to get information from the Studentcentrum. Also the process of getting the credits from your abroad studies are awfully slow. This make it hard to plan what courses to study after abroad studies.»
- I found most of programme giving theoretical knowlege only,lack of practical information,no as such interaction with hardware and devices specially in Communication and Networks.»
- More practical and outside work influenced teaching.»
- Add a course teaching how to use SAP software.»
- my overall feeling is that the courses are somehow hard. but i"m able to handel them afterall.»
- Check background and English knowledge of foreign students better. It is frustrating when we have to spend time teaching them basic stuff. Don"t just repete the I Bachelor with some extras. Make SCM a bit more challenging. »
- Add Network Security. Truly an important course for any software engineer.»
- ACP is a very useful course, and I think QFT is very important, why do you choose the particular lecturer/examiner that you do? »
- More international teachers and people committed to teaching. Some teachers seem to have too many businesses and extracurricular activities that interferes and takes time away from teaching.»
- We were only three swedes (out of 25), maybe they don"t know what they are missing? Another thing that I noticed, is that this is to some extent more of a programme preparing for further studies (PhD..). There has not been much of any cooperation with the industry, but that could very well be due to the fact that there isn"t a lot of industry in nanofabrication around yet... At least not here in Sweden...»
- its good»
- I think the Master program is quite satisfactory.»
- No»
- Information, information, information.»
- According to me the quality of the Masters program is satisfactory.»
- No»
- The responsible ones have got a special survey regarding this...»
- More Economy qould be good for our continues lives I guess.»
- I really would like to speak to someone in charge of this face to face. It"s not easy to give opinions here in short sentences ...»
- No opinion, everything"s fine.»
- Make it a bit easy dear.. :)»
- revising compulsory vs. elective courses, improving some courses like Moleculat Electronics, definetely working on improving the lecture schedule for all courses, so electives can actually freely be chosen.»
- I am utterly grateful that I didn"t have to take any electives at Chalmers since I studied abroad 1 year. But the offering of elective courses should be extended.»
- assistance in getting a company to do the master thesis. At least for international students, because companies don"t really care about our ideas if we are not swedish. »
- Except few of them, many examinations do not evaluate how much the student digests the information. Instead, a student with good "memory" can answer many of the questions witohut a trouble and therefore get a good mark. This should definitely be changed.»
- none»
- Not really clear for me, but nothing is perfect.»
- Provide english courses for students taking their 3rd year at Chalmers. You don"t need to make them mandatory but at least highlight their importance!!»
- English test before admission for al foreign student. This is not a suggestion if Chalmers what’,s to keep its good name this is a necessarily as it is to day you don’,t get the education that you what and are entitle to because of difficulties in communication. This goes for some of the teachers as well that could do with a English lesson. »
- 1) Improve informing students on study related issues 2) Coordination of courses so that they will be more complementary to each other, not overlapping, and enough content 3) More hands-on excercises, projects etc...»
- Press the importance of a well made cource-PM.»
- Im generallz pleased»
- To provide students to higher extent with information obout upcoming events/exibibions/seminars in city of Göteborg or Handelshögskolan that are related to the Master programme. »
- Perhaps a higher grade requirement for IELTS for international students, something like 6.5 to 7.0 should suffice since management courses require a very good understanding of English and I noticed some students really struggling to understand the course literature.»
- Add more practical work in the course, more guest lectures and update Labs/Studios »
- Java seems to be a necessity to attend the program. So either put an intence course in the begining or give the flexibility to use any language, or dont accept students that dont have any backgroung on it. Less students should be in lectures and labs so that the quality improves and the professors be less impersonal to the students.»
- Some of the teachers" English skill might be improved so that we can understand clearly.»
- It would be nice to see whether all these examinations have any impact. read also no.35»
- Sadly, the level of knowledge and ambition of the exchange students, especially concerning the english language, is far below what should and must be expected from master students. I think Chalmers would gain tremendously from having stricter check ups on the students from abroad and also have some kind of language test before admission. As it is now, I am sad to say, having to do a project with one of the exchange students (not all of them of course but almost) is like doing the project all by yourself. This cannot and must not continue or the quality of the Chalmers education will suffer.»
- Read above about electrical hands-on knowledge.»
- Give teachers an English course. »
- Have more interaction with industry.»
- Maybe more chances to visit and do case studies in companies.»
- More information to foreign students about copyright and taking text from internet. I get hard to do some works together when you have to be a police and not a friend.»
- Make sure the "extra" semester is filled with relevant electable courses.»
- Force the teachers to take courses in how to teach and in English!!»
- Chalmers should pay more attention to background studies of students. Admitting students from such a vast variety of background is not such a good idea.»
- There is a need for Chalmers to hire good and well experienced teachers. The Image group does not have any teacher and it is really in trouble.»
- Better cooperation between teachers, more even workload.»
