- Not that much, during my time 2000-2004 a bit low quality. The real knowledge and exper. came from our periods at sea during that programe. »
- Good to take the more technical courses in the Bachelor as this masters program is more administrative, or the courses I took. Then you have both.»
- Very Useful: Good foundation in Mathematics. Very good skills in Matlab. Good: Already knew about tensor notation. The course Rigid Body Dynamics is more or less the same as Mekanik 2 in F2. Note: I took extra courses in Mechanics (Teknisk Fysik), Strength of materials (Teknisk Fysik), Fluid mechanics (Maskin) and FEM (Maskin) which are not mandatory in Teknisk Matematik.»

- The benefits were it was a broad programme and practical oriented with valuable work preparing experience. »
- all mathematics courses: very useful solid state physics: very useful, good & necessary I think most courses were reasonably good, and it is nice to get a general education within physics. »
- Since I studied both architecural projects and engineering courses I"d say that the combination of these courses I took made me realize more that my interest is greater in the field of architecture which made me choose MPARC.»

16. Indicate possible improvements for your bachelor program.

Please comment on areas that have to be strengthened, courses that need to be modified or does not fit into the program and so on.

- More relevant courses (who needs subatomic physics, it would be more useful to have more environmental courses, statistics, and engineering courses). Improved pedagogic thinking would also help.»
- There is a need for a course in commercial CFD, using commercial codes like ANSYS Fluent or Star CCM+ or something else. »
- Hard to say. But GU has a lot of work to do. »
-
- Introduce more practical elements, where the theoretical knowledge can be applied. »
- Jag tror mer matlab och reglerteknik vore bra, speciellt för automotive-programmet. »
- Improved ergonomics»
- Fysiken omkring oss Miljöfysik»
- More entrepreneurship More excel training Less tech courses and math»
- Better organization! Schedule in TIME, teachers that show up for the meetings/lectures, rooms to be settled BEFORE the students enter the premises etc. Also clearer information about grades, what"s expected from us.»
- No idea»
- No it was good»
- I belive that the nano is missleadign. Only one nano course that only scratches the surface. Beside from that I appreciate that the program focus material science!»
- internship should be able to be counted as points. most people in architecture do atleast one year of internship between the bachelor and master, or after the first year of master - at least halv a year should be able to be counted as points to get the degree in chalmers. We learn more on the internship then we could ever do in the same 6 months in school. »
- Everybody should have the ability to read BOTH automatic control and strength of materials.»
- No internship involved and no project leading exercises »
- Look over the work/point between courses and programs! And more contact with industry»
- Consider changing the mandatory courses - we who studied the bachelor program felt that some courses were exactly the same and would have liked to learn something new instead.»
- Skip all the math. No use in my master at all.»
- The kemisk miljövetenskap (KMV) was on a way too low level.»
- More knowledge about financial control. Necessary for a lot of potential employers. »
- a continuation of the database course for distributed databases/nosql databases. The distributed courses are crap and don"t have anything to do with how the industry works.»
- Group work needs to be strengthened in terms or organization of groups and in terms of the connection between courses and group work. Sustainability needs to be strengthened since many of these elements did not fit into the courses that they were part of.»
- The bachelor program has already been modified, i.e. more CAD.»
-
- The courses need to be more cohesive»
- More evaluations on a personal level. More connections to industry and future work places»
- Less courses involving water. »
- It think there should be more of the compulsory elective courses in the spring. I was for Erasmus exchange during the fall and that decision forced me to take all of the compulsory courses in the spring (there are only 4) which forced me to take subjects as corrosion and catalysis which is not in my interest at all. Would have been much better to be able to take courses which I was actually interested in and in the field I would like to work! »
- More project writing would be good, since that is how they evaluate us at masters level. And project writing with FEADACK»
- I am overall happy with my bachelor program. Possiblities for improvement lies within each course rather than the overall structure.»
- No, it was a good balance»
- Course in other programming language than Java, e.g. C# or C++ would be relevant and useful.»
- maybe more possibilities to choose, if you want to go into a chemical engineering master transport processes and biorection engineering for example are much more useful than if you want to go into a less indutrial master program (like biotechnology). Then it might be more useful with mroe courses in generla chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology»
- The MATLAB course needs to be emphasized in the biotechnology program. Better knowledge in that area would be very helpful when taking the biomedical engineering master. »
- Not really. The main thing is to keep it at the same level and not make it easier in any way. After finnishing the three years one really appriciate the challenge, even though one didnt do that in the middle of year two :)»
- a more dedicated and eager person that is in charge of the program. make more connections with companies(i.e. for master thesis relations). Implement the possibility to learn CANanalyzer, labview softwares.»
- Need closer connection to the business world»
- Överlag är det väldigt bra. Något utökad presentationsteknik hade varit bra..»
- More "quick" assignments, projects with shorter deadlines. Often the projects ran throughout the whole "Läsperiod", for a better learning experience, som projects with deadlines withon a day or two would be useful.»
- reglerteknik och transformer, signaler och system. hela programmet känns bara dräggigt»
- Would be useful to clearly see what courses are required/useful for which master"s programmes. Bring back Fysik för Ingenjörer instead of the unnessecarily difficult combination of Mekanik from F and Termodynamik from Kf.»
- The hard work in Teknisk Fysik has to be motivated somehow. I believe that concact with companies during the study time can be a motivation for people to do well in their studies.»
- The teachers need to be more clear and follow the rules at Chalmers better. It really bothers me when they don"t»
- More applications, connections to industry»
- Bärkraftig resurshantering, Transformer signaler och system and Reglerteknik didn"t feel very relevant at all.»
- The technical bases are not fitted to the Industrial economy programme. In particular the financial mathematics base is really not fitted toward the whole programme. »
- More coordination between the courses with environmental focus. Many courses is more or less the same, and the topic even though initially interesting, gets boring the way it is structured now.»
- I am actually very pleased with most of the program. Perhaps "produkter och processer i ett hållbart samhälle" and "kemiteknik, miljö och samhälle" was a little to unapplicable and general for my taste.»
- More Electives»
- Add a course that teaches the C programming language»
- Integration within the CSE and BIO track»
- N/A»
- More technical courses.»
- Några kurser kändes lite väl enkla. Framförallt: industriell ekonomi, matematiskt statistik. Energiomvandlingen hade väldigt dåligt fokus (valbar kurs).»
- The courses on enviroment and toxicology needs improvement (they are loosley attatched to each other at the moment), Also GKT (Grundläggande kemi teknik) is no good. Silly amount of work»
- Workload was too high, soft skills were negliged.»
- Miljö kursen kan förbättras. Materia och vågteori kan förbättras.»
-
- Better "space" for the experimental courses so that the students are able to focus more on the labs. The courses are extremely good, but the structure and the fact that they"re surrounded by so many other courses are problematic. In general more ties to experimental physics and technology. I think that the program has gone to far towards the theoretical side of physics, which also is important but now dominates over the experimental side.»
- more biotechnology courses. Better teachers in some courses.»
- Need to have a basic course/intro to programming! Just something where students who never have done programming before (like me) can get logic behind it. If you don"t know what programming is or the most basic structure of it, you can"t learn relatively easy stuff like Matlab. Have to do something about the applied mathematics course (tillämpad matematik), but I know that it"s going to be re-done.»
- not applicable»
- The program as a whole would come together much better if the Dynamical Systems course was placed earlier in the curriculum. The analysis methods developed in this course would help in parts of both Computational biology and Information theory in my opinion. Another problem with the programme as a whole is that the connection to industry feels pretty weak. We"ve not met with a single company during the first year. My impression right now is that if you choose CAS, then you"re getting a Ph.D by default.»
- mer MATLAB/Simulink och COMSOL»
- I would suggest to have (small) a course in theoretical Computer Science, models of computation, complexity theory etc for bachelor students, and skip the MTS-requrement or make Bärkraftig Resursanvändning an MTS-valid course. It is sad to have an 7.5hp MTS requirement since I would rather have spent those credits on an interesting technical course. Let the students who want to take MTS courses.»
- There"s a lot of compulsory courses making it hard to chose interesting ones. Maybe the compulsory courses could be spread out over the year.»
- It is fine»
- More pedagogical teachers would make it more fun and easier.»
- Reglerteknik should be omitted.»
- Fysik för Ingenjörer as well as Reglerteknik could be move to the pile of "Valbara kurser".»
- More reflections. Why do we do what we do? Is it apparent that there is only one way? We call it "Problem solving" but who has designed the problem and are we solving the right problems? More reflective writing. And also a more scientific approach, why do we write lab reports, for instance? It"s because we"re a part of a research collective! This mindset is so embedded it might be hard to put one"s finger on.»
- Deeper knowledge in peripheral sciences»
- Earlier information about master programmes and which bachelor courses that are relevant for each programme»
- The traffic courses are not up to par with the other courses, you are given 100 questions with one word as the answer and that"s the only theory of the course.»
- more about technical solutions for sustainable buildings. how to build sustainable buildings »
- Drinking Water and Waste Water engineering needs more hydraulic content and less process technique content and of course: Better software programs, Update to Mike Urban as soon as possible»
- It is nice, how you insist on your shameful mistakes.»
- More individual assignments, less group work»
- Better administration. Lack of coordination and information»
- The algorithms course should be mandatory, writing proofs is hard and we"ve little training for it. Complexities on the level approched in the algorithms course makes all CSE students understand what its really all about!»
- None»
- It could be made more easy to select courses by presenting the choises graphically, so that you can see which courses can be taken simultaneously. I remember seeing a schematic like this from the student counselor, but I don"t think it was available for the students on either one of the student portals. »
- Teknikbaserna känns lite ofokuserade och lite oseriösa bitvis, det borde gå att plocka ihop fyra tekniska kurser med relevans för alla I:are. De varierar väldigt mycket vilka förkunskaper som krävs på teknikbaskurserna också.»
- Miljökurserna, PPHS, KMV, ETM och KMS behöver styrkas, Göras om så att de behandlar aktuella saker och inte är så upprepande pga samläsninga av vissa kurser med andra program»
- why is the course mikroelektronik mandatory? it doesn"t make any sens regarding that the course elteknik isn"t and that i have no use for it what so ever on MPEPO.»
- I belive more time can be spent on puting what we were taught during the bachelor in to a wider perspective. Relate what can be related to actual projects within the industry, give proper examples and show how and why the subjects are important in real life. All in all, I think Chalmers education focus way to much on preparing student for a possible working life as a researcher. Most students will become working engineers and could probably benefit more from trying to apply lecture material on real projects rather than doing another academic comparative study between different research literature.»
- Pedagogy, practical experiences, labs, more connection to reality. Th eeducation is too theoretical.»
- Some courses should be better on a master level. Today there"s no possibility to get an understanding for all the things included.»
- Include tensors in some math course»
- few courses to choose between. »
- Solid state chemistry did not have a webpage, instead all information was emailed to us. Very old fashion and messy. »
- More connected to to industri»
- better operations management courses calculus was really hard coming straight form high school, explore E-learning and other ways to teach»
- Better organisaton and better possibilities to communicate with the teachers/leaders.»
- The course in mathematical statistics is very bad and does not prepare the students nearly enough for the advanced course in the masters program. »
- Mekanik med biologiska exempel= the course is a joke Transportprocesser= the course is unreasonably large for 7.5 credits»
- Someone should look over the layout of the programme. It"s getting better but it still needs improvement»
- Control theory should be mandatory due to it"s wide applications in engineering. Fourier analysis should also be helpful (more than what"s covered in the applied mathematics course).»
- Especially in the quantum mechanics coursed better communication between the teachers is needed and communication also with the fourier analysis teacher. »
- Look into spreading the work necessary. Some periods were ridiculously hard to complete because of the tremendous work burden. »
- I think Concurrent programming should be mandatory, skip the choice between two courses.»
- fluid mechanics»
- The Nordic Architecture course could be removed completely and replaced with something more useful that contemplates the field from a broader more global perspective.»
- In the third year one should have the possibility to chose other courses than some of the modern physics courses, for example subatomär fysik. »
- Verksamhetsutveckling and Produktionsledning should be merged into one course. »
- More entrepreneurship»
- In general, be much better at preparing for the MsC. It feels to me like the Bachelor had a lot of courses that could have been much more, perhaps more difficult and more of a challenge - which also would have prepared you for better for the Master.»
- Some of the courses has been to easy and just a mess. To keep the quality high needs high demands on the student in every course. It should not be possible to pass exams in courses without putting in those hours that are required.»
- The program is quite narrow in its view upon the world. Also, the workload was constantly too high which made the whole program very stressful. »
-
- Why are there two water courses that are mandatory? The course Water resources is one of the worts courses I have taken at Chalmers. There are to few courses to choose from at this master.»
- Energy courses»
- There is so much that can be improved that I don"t know where to start. An area that needs IMMEDIATE improvement is the administrative factors at IxD. Bloch scheme X on all courses, exam results are reported waaay too late, communication between teachers, etc. Another area is the study environment that is awful. It"s modern and fresh but not at all suitable for lectures and studios in the same room. We need creative space for crafting as well as structured space for listening. The courses actually have good topics. Most are just poorly implemented and lack the weight and depth it could achieve. »
- Functional programming should not be placed as the first course. I don"t think most students start with the necessary mathematical understanding to appreciate the benefits of functional programming.»
- It"s a large step in terms of academic level between the master and the bachelor level, might be good to make the third year of the master a bit more similar to the master level, to make the students better prepared (in terms of reading academic articles etc.)»
- Some courses were completely useless and should be replaced.»
- There should be more courses that are free to select like the system of master studios. I think the bachelor program needs a update general! We should not have to wait until masters courses to learn about sustainability and how the reality looks like. The way we are thought I think should be changed to a method that is relevant today and not based on old times habits. The bachelor program needs space and time to students explore architecture and not only do what the teachers tells them to do. It could be more collaborative and also more computers courses!»
- n/a»
- Think the program needs a digital prototyping cours.»
- Make the selection of MTS courses more interesting.»
- More pure Chemistry»
- Kandidaten var väldigt spretig och det var svårt att få något sammanhang då det kändes som om inga kurser hängde ihop. Jag hade gärna sett att ekonomistyrning var ett inslag som återkom i flertalet av ekonomikurserna. Dessutom tror jag att det hade varit bra att ha en en kurs liknande "organisational behaviour orientation" så att jag hade fått ut mer utav grupparbetena. »
- The it/programming parts of the maths courses (=the matlab parts) are not relevant for the education and the way they are performed means you dont learn anything anyway. If matlab is really required it should be done as a seperate course. »
- the Design Course is more catered for architects. there is need for a design course suitable for civil engineers as well»
- Too many mandatory courses.»
- The level of the Chemical engineering courses is in general lower then math courses. They could very well have been improved. Like separation and modeling courses year 3 was not at a very engaging level. I believe they could step it up and take inspiration from math and physics courses. »
- More software programming»
- no opinion.»
- I think ERE102 Control Theory is a very good course from the point of view of content, but it needs to be better shaped for our learning.»
- Up-to-date technology, Wide overview over Embedded technology»
- ALL course need to be more structural, teatchers needs to talk to each other more so they do not talk about the same thing. In courses where softwar is used teatchers needs to know the progam if else there is no meaning having that step in the course. New teachers need to structure the courses and make them fit them self, the knowlige of studants AND the program. The modelling course does not fit into the program.»
- I think the structure of the programme is good.»
- Elektriska kretsar och fält, Fysik för ingenjörer does not fit the program. Datorsystemteknik needs to be improved. »
- Better organization»
- Dont remember.»
- Overall, would like more porject based courses where the students have the chance to work in a more reality situated process.»
- Should be compolsary with summer internship»
- More relevant courses. These courses should have to pass the same requirements which all the courses at Chalmers do. Currently. they course PMs don"t fulfill the critera because our programme is a new one and is allowed too much slack.»
- The courses are not given in a correct order, Stochastic calculus is given before basic stochastic processes which is given after basic probability theory. Obviously the schedule could improve - or at least a decent explanation to the students. »
- None, perfect»
- finansiell matematik-basen måste förbättras»
- Nothing really, Heard they are changing that bachelor and I am kinda think they are good»
- I would have liked a course of intellectual property. That is something that is lacking in the bachelor program, although some is touched upon in the Innovationsekonomi course. »
- We need another course in statistics, one more applied, including data fitting, statistical errors, and Bayesian statistics.»
- Kemisk Miljövetenskap kunde varit mer i tiden (förberett för masterkurserna livscykelanalys, global chemical sustainability och ecodesign). Fasta tillståndets fysik känns ovettig att läsa obligatoriskt så sent då man förmodligen redan bestämt sig för masterinriktning. Reglertekniken är för teoretisk»
- So far only missing application practice ofta the theorybwe learned»
- To be more concrete as in the MP. The bachelor is supposed to be very general but a higher level of motivation can be achieved if creating the feeling about being able to actually use it in industry. »
- More electronics and/or communication related courses would have been useful.»
- --»
- Detär alldeles för lite praktisk kunskap och verklighetsförankring.»
- Projektledning, synkronisera kurserna mer»
- Software Engineering course»
- Matematisk statistik och signalbehandling borde delas upp i två kurser. En konstruktionskurs hade inte varit fel.»
- It was very good»
- Utförandet av byggnadsmaterial/teknik och teksnik samhällsplanering behöver förbättras, det gäller även strukturmekaniken (fast den är väl omgjord redan?). »
- Design processes and management»
- Teknisk samhällsplanering, Byggnadsmaterial, Hydraulik och VA-teknik, Miljökurs, Teknik och Samhälle (MTS-kurs)»
- Knowlegde in matlab, we barely used matlab and it was necessary in my master»
- Good all in all, they coul have a Fourier Analysis course though and/or one on linear dynamical systems.»
- De grundläggande matematik kurserna(ALA) borde vara mer förberedande inför Matematisk statistik, Komplex matematisk analys och Fourieranalys. Kanske ska Kemiteknik med fysik läsa grundmatte med fysikerna istället. »
- Med de ändringar som är gjorda under de senaste åren tror jag att bachelor program är bra.»
- Should be more connected to industry and the order of the courses should be rethought»
- Building material sciences/Byggnadsmaterial. This must be Chalmers"s worst course. The subject is very interesting, however the teaching team is unprofessional and I do not understand how they ended up at an academic institution. »
- Lokalerna är riktigt dåliga. Datorerna är i datasalarna placerade så att man slår i knäna. (prova att sitta på vån 7 i fysikhuset). Toaletterna luktar illa, t.o.m. utanför dem på många ställen. Pappret är ofta slut på helgerna. Linuxdatorerna krånglar extremt ofta p.g.a. fel med filservern. Dessa saker har irriterat mig oerhört under hela utbildningen. Att datorerna ej fungerat har flera gånger gjort att jag åkt in till chalmers för att jobba bara för att behöva åka hem igen då datorerna ej fungerat.»
-
- All courses are good so far»
- Programme felt ancient, geared towards and industry that is leaving Sweden. I felt disappointed by the focus on automotive and aeronautics industry. I"m sick and tired of examples containing cars and aeroplanes. Control theory (Reglerteknik) should be removed ASAP and replaced with actual programming courses. An important course would be Operating Systems. There should be more emphasis on actually learning how to code. We should write more code and have more code reviews. It shouldn"t be possible to get through the bachelor writing bad code. »
- MOP does not fit. Many of the courses I took have already been changed, like SE and HCI»
- Ekonomikurserna skulle kunnat vara lite tuffare, för att lära sig mer helt enkelt. Jag tänker att företagsekonomi är viktigt, därför läser många dubbelt och det tycker jag verkar onödigt!»
- Remove all product development courses from the program.»
- More time learning Matlab»
- 1.Advanced distributed sysytem: The lectures of this course are very bad, I hope some of the teachers or a teacher or one from the administratiom aread come as a student and sit in teh lectures (Chines movie with japanees text) 2.Computer networks: The course contains a topic called "self stabilization" And it was not explained fairly»
- more calculation in software that is useful»
-
- det är egentligen inte så givande om man väljer en annan inriktning än konstruktion. Vill man gå miljö har man valt helt fel linje.»
- more practice (too theoretical)»
- There should be some recommended (not mandatory) packages of elective courses to help students choose courses that fit well together.»
- More business approach, ensure that a potential solution has a business potential»
- Kalkyleringskurserna.»
- Some courses need to be improved generally as they do not give much information to a student of civil engineering, for example the course in economics. It is far to simple to add any useful information. Other than that allowing student to choose some of the mandatory courses would be good as many of the courses will be of little or no use to me as I am finished. »
- Enviromental, »
- The engineering competence courses and the library courses.»
- Flervariabelkursen är inte nödvändig att ha med sig i alla masterprogram kopplade till bachelorn. Kursen i sig är onödigt svår att klara. Personligen gick jag kursen på annan institution efter två kuggade tentor. Gick som en dans på maskin!»
- PRoduction Logistics is very unneccesary for students who come from Industrial Engineering and Management due to earlier Logistics courses. Does not feel like a course on the "advanced" level»
- need more radical approach »
- All courses have been good. Would have been nice to have one more semi elective to chose between in reading period 3.»
- Keep all the mandatory courses. Make the course "mathematical methods in physics" in year 3 compulsory, as well as the course in special relativity and the course in partial differential equations. All these are essential for an engineering physics graduate.»
- Mindre fokus på konstruktion, mer inslag av entreprenadverksamhet.»
- Reglertekniken blir svår att läsa eftersom ordentlig grund saknas innan kursen. Dålig anknytning till resterande kurser dessutom - valbar...?»
- The control theory could be more demanding, but it is not a course given by Teknisk fysik but by the same institution that is holding my master program (MPSYS).»
- I would like a course with signal processing, where you learn about filters and transforms etc. However, I know this is not relevant if you want to study finance. But it would be good if you could choose such a course. »
- Less electables, make the programme include all nessecary math, one course in functional programming and also connect the courses in programming, software engineering and human computer interaction to show how the whole process works from start to finish already in the first and second year of the programme. The programme is today too free and which means that a future employer would not know what to expect from an civing of IT. That will lower our reputation.»
- More statistical physics, to understand both the physics and chemistry.»
-
- Presentation skills and excel»
- pedagogic skills of teachers have been bad. Sometimes too much focus on mathematics.»
- Lite mindre teori och lite mer verklighetskoppling i produktutvecklingskurserna. »
- no opinion»
- The Advanced Software Architecture course should have more interactive lectures. The Software Product Line lectures could be as well more interactive. The 15 minutes brakes after 45 minutes of teaching should be respected. In the Model Based Testing course, our breaks are not respected.»
- Byggnadsmaterial. Byggnadsteknik.»
- Automation system measurement»
- much repeating of parts of courses such as lean, the "envirnmental sections" or parts of the corses have men SO bad!»
- more projects could be better. »
- programming»
- Some more object oriented programming would be useful.»
- The course pollution prevention had some relevant information for the program, it should be developed further to be more structured and include projects and assignments. The CFD course was really heavy and could be divided into two I think, very interesting and good structure though. »
- All other courses.»
- Integrerad konstruktion och tillverkning - För låg nivå / dålig struktur Linjär algebra - För låg nivå »
- The MHU courses needs to be changed.»
- The Leadership course in the first semester of the master programme should be part of the bachelor programme instead. This information is needed earlier in the education! »
- Hard to say courses have been changed since I took them. By answering this question, I will most likely distort the general opinion on the courses as my answers will be based on old versions of the courses.»
- Group work»
-
- Less environmental courses Improved MTS requirement»
- Matlab and CAD,especially the CAD part (which wasn"t CAD for us but revit) It was so bad and they did not proceeded not from our previous knowledge. »
- None»
- Computer skills have to be strenghtened, there should be a course to learn Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. Also I feel that it is necessary for architecture students to learn much more about materials and construction details.»
- ekonomi i byggande var helt meningslös»
- All courses should be optional and MP courses should be made available at the bachelor level to replace the unnecessary courses which are today mandatory (which courses that are unnecessary depends on ones choice of career).»
- Programming, theory of computation»
- Dessa MTS- och miljökurser kan vara bra för deras annorlunda arbetssätt, men annars borde de inte vara obligatoriska. »
- The ratio amount of new knowledge per lecture or hour, it is really less than during my bachelor degree.»
- To simple compared to bachelor. It is suppose to be the other way around.»
- Closer ties to industry. »
- For IT, I would suggest even less focus on Mathematics, as it seems very rare to use the skills after you graduate. Yes, you practice problem solving, but I would suggest more courses like Mathematical Modelling in that case. We have had courses in "engineering competence" that felt very redundant, as it is repeated all over at master level. Web programming I feel is a large area that is missing almost altogether and rather important. Also, not introducing testing at bachelor level is a big miss.»
- More labs.»
-
- Not much related to the MP. should be possible to choose some more courses related to management and real estate. »
- Bachelor studies did not prepare me for the increased pace and effort necessary in my masters studies. More Intellectual Property, more electives in terms of mastersprogram focus (in addition or instead of the teknikbaser used at the moment. General feeling of anyone being able to study the MEI program without attending the Bachelor program due to recaps and "start from beginning"-approach»
- change the concept of Transformer signaler och system and Reglerteknik»
- Utbildningen behöver stärka utbildningen inom alla de olika digitala verktygen som arkitekten måste behärska plus ha mer faktakurser med tentor. »
- Jag tycker att alldeles för många studenter fastnar på flervariabelkursen. Jag hade förstått den höga svårighetsgraden bättre om kursen innehöll nödvändig kunskap för att man ska kunna jobba som konstruktör etc, men i detta fall tycker jag inte att det är motiverbart.»
- Take the Matlab assignments that "Automation och mekatronik" have in their bachelor program and apply it to Datateknik aswell. »
- None. »
- shorter cources in general where students can learn to work faster. more digital cources and possibility to present digital material in fisrt grade.»
- Bad courses: Dynamical systems, Simulation of Complex systems. Dynamical systems needs improvement, the organization of the course (coure memo, grading principles etc) could have been better. Also, the content of the coure is to a large extent covered by Compuational Biology 1 and it would be much better if the courses changed places with each other. Simulation of complex systems needs improvement on the lectures»
- More information on which courses correspond to what masters program would be appreciated.»
- Reglerteknik - it"s too niched and does not fit into the maskinteknik program.»
- No comments.»
- More presentations and projects. Tired of exams in every course. »
- Course that do not fit into the program: Elektriska kretsar, Bärkraftig resursanvändning, Dynamiska system med reglerteknik»
- Biorefinery, Cellulose Technology»
- more real world problems, how things work /work is done in the real world, implementation»
- Make the design tasks smaller, so the students have time to learn.»
- Sustainable Development, Environmental Management Systems, Technical Change for the Environment (remove), Environmental Policy Instruments»
- More group work. During my BSC we had no group work at all (BSC thesis excluded). This is a big disadvantage when entering the working life or starting a master like MPSOF.»
- The workload should be considered, better interaction between the courses. The two first in the master program had a good distrubution between the hand-ins but it was still very much to do.»
- More practical / hands-on exposure to manufacturing techniques»
- More tutors »
- Much less courses in sustainable development. K students who take the MPNUE program reads 22.5 hp in similar courses which is way more than necessary. More engineering courses would be better»
- More project work, should have some courses with real projects without a fixed goal before bachelor thesis. »
- A course in model-based software development.»
- More signal theory, more thorough math courses»
- Don´,t have "valfri kurser" since first of all, it is difficult to find courses at Chalmers that fit the schedule and the pre requirements (finding courses somewhere else is even more difficult). It is much better that those 15 hp are used by the program, för exempel if that has been the case, the "byggnadsfysik, inneklimat och tekniska system"-course could have been slit into two courses as it was from the beginning. »
- Tillverkningsteknik, inte alls anpassad efter vårt program. För stort fokus på "gamla" material och tillverkning som stål, då exempelvis plaster har mer betydelse för branchen inom Teknisk Design. Skissteknik borde uppdateras, ta in mer färg & form tidigare samt digital förbättring tidigare, hade varit fördelaktigt att kunna detta inför projekt i 3:an.»
- Better courses about the enviroment»
- Real and experienxed teachers, better structure, help fron TAs»
- Not much can be done since it has to include such a variety of coarses and there are no selectable coarses.»
- More focus should be on CATIA!»
- mer kretsanalys och digitalteknik, gärna någon kurs där man får praktiskt tillämpa elektronikkonstruktion och får tillverka ett eget pcb av sitt kretsschema»
- Integration with other programs»
- All courses should have a link to environmental and economical factors. All courses should also be looked over when it comes to the structure and workload. Only motivated researchers who wants to teach and are good at it should be allowed to teach! This is a general problem within the program and also in other programs from what I have heard from other students. Taking some courses at Gothenburg Business school, I feel that they have much better teacher. If they can so can we!»
- studiebesök?»
- Byggnadsmaterial, våg och materieteori»
- Nothing in particular.»
- more electable courses»
- N/A»
- Some courses should be taught over two study periods.»
- As I see it today, it has improved a lot. »
-
- some courses needed to have better educators. Most of the teachers were really good but some of them seemed uninterested and uninspired.»
- Ta bort reglertekniken»
- the courses in math.»
- Amy matlabcourse at all»
- The programme has a very tight schedule and minor improvements could maybe be performed within each course.»
- more electronics courses or object oriented programming»
- More options aside from 15-HP-competitions courses for the building technology students»
- More CAD! The courses should have more connection to the industry. Samhällsplanering och mer modellering»
- Clearer overall picture. General goals!»
- The chemical engineering or processchemistry courses are too similar.»
- This is a diffucult question. Overall, we should have been given much more knowledge about the different ways to work with computer programmes, and also have pedalocical discussions about how they will change the way architects have worked before. Today teachers just seem to have too little knowledge about this and also seem to be afraid of this development. Also, overall, the courses/projects in architecture should focus more on HOW to reach the goals, and not focusing on the result. We are many students that don"t know today how to go through a good process since the final critics always focuses on the result. »
- More on computational mdthods for modelling and calculation of controllers.»
- The course above needs changes and also the installationsteknik course!»
- The program has one course in interface design and one in "software engineering". Both are pretty bad (at least when I took the courses, I know the software engineering course has changed since then.), which is a shame, because both topics are really important. There was one course about environmental issues that could have been completely left out, it didn"t give anything.»
- More frequent work with Matlab.»
- A course focusing on analytical chemistry would be nice.»
- More bio-physics courses would be nice. This is a rather interdiciplinary program compared to many other. It provides you with knowledge in both cell- biology, chemistry as well as physics. Unfortunately I think the courses in physics should be grater in number and the material that is discussed should in some cases be renewed to make a more coherent program.»
- I would have prefered an option wether to study both "människa maskinsystem" and "arbetsorganisation" or just one of them. These classes are probably better to study if you choose a product development program.»
- Mer experiment, mer laborationer»
- we didn"t learn enough pratical, as computer programs»
- do an academic report instead of a design competition as the candidate in order to prepare for the MT»
- I feel that a lot of things are taken for granted, eg. If you are not fimiliar with linux systems, although you learn by doing but it could be a good idea to consider.»
- Warn people that the job market for biotechnology is extremely limited compared to ordinary chemistry.»
- The courses that treats the environmental aspects of chemical engineering needs improvement»
- »
- after the first semester the organization and information over all need to be better »
- Signaling should not be mandatory. A course on software architecture would be great, perhaps one were an open source project is selected and improved upon in a team. »
- More practical coureses either laborations or projects. I would also like to have more continous examinating, like hand in tasks ones a week. It is important however that these handins covers the same subjects as the exams. This in order to increase the number of students passing the courses. »
- Much more presentations so that public speaking skills can be improved and practiced. Also, more individual taks and evaluations so that one can prepare for being evaluated individually when starting to work. A last thing is that more internationality and languages should be incorporated or at least facilitated to take. »
- The international students are uaually so isolated or just sorrounded by othe rinternational srudents, the integration between swedish and international students can be evaluated. Otherwise the courses were great. »
- Take the opportunity given by CSN with 40 LV. Use the "extra hours" to spread the work load evenly! Better planning from teachers. I know this is a university and the students are responsible for their learning but give them good study conditions. Continuous examination during the semester, or something.»
- the course Marine transport system needs to be improved»
- Maybe some course that regards management. »
- ..»
- mer byggnads teknologi, träffade en ingenjör bara två gånger för mitt kandidat arbete, och det var inte vidare användbart. »
- More practical work, for exaple usage of AutoCad. »
- Should be more electable courses and especially it should be more practical examples and courses and not so theoretical as it is now, when we get out on the market we wont have any idea what is realistic or possible if we haven"t organized internships. This is a big downside, but it is still important to keep the theoretical basis and understanding. I think if there was more electable and not so many mandatory course it would be possible to have both theoretical and practical since one subject could be divided into two courses and the students are free to choose which type of subjects he or she wants to focus on after for example one and a half to two years of basic introducing courses »
- more engineer courses on an easy level. maybe we should have had byggingenjör couses instead of väg och vatten courses. to get a better understanding of structures adn not just numbers. »
- Think mechanical engineering is good since it make for a lot of opportunities to the MP choice.»
- Administration, the course sjöfartsförsäkringar has to be improved»
- No direct structural improvements. The problem lied in some individuals who did not seem to want to teach, but I am sure you have caught this in the indivudal evaluations and worked that out.»
- More real life application focus needed in most courses»
- Its three years ago, I can"t evaluate that in sufficient way now.»
- More quantum physics»
- Statistics for eng»
- Byggnadsfysik/inneklimat - has to be improved. VA-teknik is not necessary for the Master, but good for overview.»
- Higher demands. Students who fail to hand in their projects before deadline should be failed, or at least get some kind of "punishment" such as extra work.»
- More CAD courses»
- We need to learn Excel! »
- More focus on housing and urban planning»
- A bit of basic chemistry would be useful. As well as some more training in presentation skills.»
- Should not have courses together with other programs. »
- Some courses suffered from a true connection to Biotechnology such as Mekanik med biologiska exempel. Other courses suffered from inexperienced lecturers who could not mediate the knowledge in a clear way (Statistik och bioinformatik). »
- More contact to the industry and less unassary assignments in the courses »
- Urban metabolism. I will not take that course because of all the negative comments i"ve heard about it and i don"t think it will be necessary in my choice of career»
- more technical courses»
- More conencted to reality in getting connected to companies etc. »
- Göra reklam så att fler företag vet vad det är.»
- Det har varit många bra kurser specifik inriktade på energisystem på olika nivåer. »
-
- Higher demands for pass»
- nyttigare matte innan hade vart bra»
- I would like to have more courses focusing on project management, strategic management, strategic marketing, macro and micro economics, business strategy, behavior science etc I rather would had courses in Excel than Java..also the tecknical focus(teknikbas) courses were really bad and out of context I would also very much appreciated courses/discussions about ethics, CSR etc What more that could be good would be more case training and connection to companies (not only VOLVO, SKF etc)»
- The connection between the bachelor courses need to be strengthened. As for now, they are presented to the student as very separate subject areas, while they could be structured more in relation to each other - enhancing the students ability to see the diversity of a problem and use different approaches. Mekanik med biologiska exempel, Tillämpad matematik, Medicinska signaler och system - they need more structured to fit the needs of the engineering student in BIOTECHNOLOGY, and they could be connected to each other on a deeper level, also together with Transportprocesser. Mekanik med biologiska exempel is basically a repetition of Fysik A/B in the swedish gymnasium.»
- Question not clear.»
- So problems with the block schedule not working with laboration times»
- I would recommend both the above courses for this MP (Interaction) but I would have more introduction courses to programming and more work alone (or in groups).»
- make it broader and not so focused on old, physical product design»
- Very little connection to the industry, more study visits or internships would be great!»
- * "Kemi med biokemi" should perhaps be divided in three exams as in the case of ALA A-C. * "Medicinska signaler och system med elektricitetslära" should update the course plan. It feels old fashion and my impression is that the students just learn things by heart without understanding. This way it doesn"t get as interesting as it could. I shouldn"t be more advanced though, but have some elements for understanding implementation. *Something needs to be done with "Transportprocesser". Either more credits or longer time period. This course is somewhat needed for further understanding in other courses though.»
- Make some courses optional. There were no posibility to choose any courses duriog the bachelor program. The last study period you shold be able to take a course that are helpful for the master program that you choose.»
- The discrete math course fo the IT-prgogramme could have been better in many areas.»
- Architectural Competitions and Housing Inventions are to large for the amount of credits. Not enough time.»
- It would be good to add more courses concerning electricity»
- It is very light everything, no feelings for design and that is why swedish architects are so bad»
- I think the Electronic Magnetic Wave course has to be strengthened and to be taught more deeper, because it is far from enough fitting my master program. For instance, most students took the first introduction class as an review class, but for me it was 80% new. It was a hard beginning in master program. »
- More math is needed and optimization.»
- none»
- More opportunity for exercise»
- More opportunity for exercise»
- Courses not very advanced because students with many different backgrounds are accepted to the program»
- More computers, better computers. Of the computers in EDIT 3358,5225 etc about 50% is not working.»
- Please, a 7,5 hp economical course is necessary! »
- The engineering-courses needs to be better (and they are going to be better)»
- managerial aspect has been supplimented so well»
- Project management»
- Better connection with industry, i.e. cases/projects with companies.»
- More connection to the inductry»
- INTERNET TECHNOLOGY»
- I did not enjoy the specific biotechnology Courses, so I might have other preferences than normal student and should probably attend chemical engineering or mechanics instead. But Im really satisfied with the master program and that I have the opportunity to choose that.»
- Very little space for creativity. If you like physics and mathematics before you enter the program, chances are you will be less enthusiastic about it afterwards. I felt there was too little stimulus. Pen and pencil exams in JAVA-programming are not useful. It"s hard to rearrange code snippets, impossible to debug-compile them, get good layout for writing code and so on. The grades don"t represent knowledge, but rather how good your handwriting is. JAVA is also a terrible choice of a language. Writing on paper is not an accurate assesment of your programming knowledge. Many books were awful. I think students should be given an opportunity to solve problems in groups of 6-8 people twice every week. One or two problems should be prepared beforehand, demonstrated by some volunteer, and some other given to them by the teachers to solve on the spot. PBL might be a good option there.»
- Ta bort Regelerteknik och signaler och system»
- Courses related to biotechnology is very late in the bachelor program. It is not until almost 2 years has passed that the courses you thought you were going to get are beginning. I am very happy that the program brings such wide knowledge about math, chemistry etc. but it becomes discouraging for those how love biotech and people who discover that they hate biotech have already followed the entire program.»
- I completed bachelor program before enrolling into Masters.»
- Creating new business - the topic is interesting but the structure and the content of the course need to be changed and improved.»
- Architectural Competitions is too short to complete a project»
- »
- Signals and Systems, and Control Theory. Are horribly difficult courses. The failing % is almost never below 70%. If this consistently happens year after year, something has to be wrong with the courses. It"s not possible that people who normally have no problems passing the courses keep failing these two courses. »
- Perhaps the signal handling and control systems engineering courses needn"t have been mandatory.»
- Det är många små kurser i poängantal. Läser oftast 3 kurser samtidigt istället för 2st som är på 7,5hp. »
- Many changes have already been made since I finished my Bachelors... DigDat and MOP weren"t very helpful, but were still interesting. The Software Engineering course wasn"t really satisfactory. Something about project management and a bit of program architecture would be useful.»
- There are to few choises. I would like to be able to choose more courses about infrastructure and geotechics. Also i feel that the WET-courses more or less has been very poorly organised.»
- remove the applied mathematics course. very narrow usefulness and a tough course.»
- Mattekurserna i början kunde varit bättre, Stig Larsson kunde varit mer motiverande och inte så teoretisk»
- Courses such as Engineering of Automotive System, Vehicle Traffic and Safety, Road Vehicle Aerodynamics did not offer much, they were too general and most of this information for this course is available on WikiPedia. Paying 280K SEK should give a little bit more in terms of academics. Also the teacher for the basic Vehicle Dyanmics Course is pathetic and I feel that this teacher has to be changed.»
- cant think of something really now»
- add more arduino based courses»
- We have a large amount of elective courses, and there"s not much information available about which courses one can choose. The program could be divided into "subprograms", much as the Engineering Mathematics and Computational Science master program is, so that you can choose courses in groups instead of always choosing courses one by one.»
- Many courses were very focused on construction, which all may not be entirely necessary for MPIEE. Bärande konstruktioner, for example. More courses in road and traffic engineering would have been nice. »
- Ta bort alla tentor och duggor som är datorbaserade. De mäter inte vad man kan utan bara vem som känner vem så att de kan få fram svaren. Detta gäller speciellt mattematisk statistik.»
- N/A»
- n/a»
- baisc electronics instead of "strömning"»
- All courses which require laboratory work should introduce a grading systems for the laboratory work. The final grade for the course should be based on the exam and the laboratory work. The Advanced Topics in CSN should be offered a report paper instead of a final exam. It would be more beneficial for the students to write a report then to take an exam. Simply because of the nature of the course (e.g. different topics and different professors.)»
- Transformer signaler och system, den kursen va sämst. Verkligen sämst. Den va som en introduktion till ämnet fast va skitsvår och sen när man läste reglerteknik så fattade man allting. En grej som jag har tänkt på nu är att det hade vart kul att lära sig mer om drivrutiner. Vad det är, hur det fungerar och hur man programmerar dem i praktik.»
- More courses in economics, there should be elected course in risk/ uncertaintity management. There should also be courses in presentations techniques, and feedback after presentation on strong/weak areas for improvments.»
- mer fokus på tillverkning och ekonomi»
- Logistik bör vara valbart för studenter på VoV. Annars bör alla kurser ses över och göras modernare. Känns inte som man läser på Sveriges modernaste universitet när man t ex. har samma lärobok som sin far som läste här för 30 år sen (Geoteknik till exempel). »
- More entrepreneurial thinking and idea evaluation»
- Bättre nivå på teknikbaserna (maskinbas)»
- More case-solving and more practical work.»
- Tillämpad matematik and Reglerteknik seem quite useless»
- More control theory»
- Many, but foremost develop the balance of academia and pragmatism in improved and conscious ways. In some aspects and courses academia is more valid than other.»
- Error estimate of parctical labs and how to present the error in reports and presentations.»
- The program has just change the course structure so I cant reflect on that»
- need to be more tools that you learn... we learned a lot about the environment, but didn"t learn how to solve any problems»
- Personally more water engineering courses would be benificial than just the hydraulic engineering course. »
- I think it would be nice to try to put the courses in a context for the students, i.e. what have we studied so far, why is this not sufficient if we want to do this and that? Try to connect courses in that way, like have a bridge like that in the beginning of a course.»
- There are a number of courses that are not that relevant, such as two different communication courses (swedish and english). Should be a maximum of one communication course. Also, the course "Technology for a global sustainable society" does not really add any value to our education.»
- Risk Management needs to be improved in terms of evaluation»
- Pollution prevention- Strengthened»
- I think there should be a little more courses in nano technology since that whats the titel of the master. There are only one course that can be chosen and even if some courses have small part of nano its very little. But maybe it comes more into physics then.... »
- Here I can go a little bit deeply in some subjects.»
- It does not feel like a nanotechnology master.. There are too few courses to choose from in lp 4. »
- More and closer work with companies.»
- More advanced mathematics. I feel that all courses i"m taking at master level assumes a higher knowledge of math than what i was expected in the bachelor. The difference is big and i wish i had taken some extra course, e.g. multivariate calculus, more linear algebra and something more in statistics. »
- Trean var rörig och otydlig. Mycket på grund av att den innehöll 2 st hårda konceptuella kurser, medan tvån varit mer teknisk. Jag kände inte att jag hade verktyg för att hantera det, och det fanns inte att tillgå heller. Gärna att man får ha nån genomgång efter varje projekt och kritik för att sammanfatta vad man kan ta med sig från kritiken.»
- Introduction to interaction design. The 3D modelling course should not only focus on Alias but on other softwares as well, such as CATIA and SolidWorks which are very common within design firms.»
- Maybe add Mathematical Modeling as a mandatory course»

- unclear question - grade based on what? what kind of problems...» (?)
- I liked the problems, so this should not be seen as anything bad, but two or three courses were really hard.» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- See above, lack of programming knowledge that people from many other programs had made some of the courses very "heavy" since it was not only the course material that was new. Also worth mentioning is that I was an exchange student for the first semester, so to be able to finish on time I studied at a higher pace. » (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- Had problems with more than 2 courses but would not call them severe» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- It"s tough if you take courses in another order than intended (e.g starting some earlier).» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- I have been struggling with understanding the full scope/purpose of the group projects and some examinations except for three courses have given me anxiety. The first two courses and Gunnar Lanner"s courses are the only one"s that didn"t feel intimidating. It most probably has to do with my technical limitations as well » (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- Since I do not have a solid, proper CS background, I have struggled a lot with certain aspects of the CS field.» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- I"ve had "problems" with courses due to lack of time, although this is not the fault of the Mater Programme, but extracurricular activity.» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- Its not severe, just unlucky» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- Many of the courses are really hard» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- Mechatronic design was a big failure i am afraid» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- Programme is a deep disappointment. Would change to another programme if it weren"t for the fact that I don"t have tuition left for an additional year. Most problems are due to poor administration, but some are due to the programme simply being poorly designed. For example the emphasis of the programme is too disconnected from industry, or rather too connected to the wrong parts of industry. Again - please rid us of this focus on automotive!» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- Don"t get good response from the teachers, they are slow answer emails, giving good critics and function as teachers by doing interesting lectures and learn out important factors. Several teachers rather talking about themselves then the subjects, and if they talk about the subject they have a too low level or they make it not interesting by using one tone voice or by talking through the literature. » (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- Perhaps have I selected to advanced courses in the "free courses". » (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- "Severe" with regard to lack of time. I finish most of the courses on a later occasion, sometimes with a higher grade than 3. Time spent (above) is more concentrated up to 40 h, due to three kids and a house - a life outside Chalmers» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- The lessened work load and "severe problems" was partially intentional, I had part time engagements that distracted from performning 100% and was prepared to repeat some courses.» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- Some of the coursed were badly planned and bad teachers who sometimed teached outside the specifications of the course. The project course wad not thought » (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- Difficulties to understand learning objectives and getting tutoring during courses resulted in a lot of time spent on learning things which turned out to be misinterpretations» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- I"ve passed all courses and have good grades but you have to put in a severe amount of time and effort which at times is not reasonable, for example when you for several weeks in a row are at school between 8am to after midnight more than five days a week (and the other days you spend at least 5 to 10 hours studying)» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- Bad time management caused me to fail several courses this winter due to other priorities.» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- However this is because the bachelor part of teknisk fysik nearly killed me and thereby I have no energy left to study... If the bachelor would have the same pace as the master the overall time here at Chalmers would have been far more pleasant!» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- i have problems because of health issues.» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- The teachers are not demanding at all... most people are completely not serious, and they get away with everything. The classes are not rigorous, and I was really looking forward to learning a lot, but unfortunately almost all of the classes have been disappointing except for a few (and those were guest lecturers - Thomas Sterner and Cristal Cederborg, and Henrikke Baumann.. the rest were really not inspiring). Bjorn was good, but by the end the class had lost the overall picture but what was worse was the fact that he seemed unopen to alternative theories even when that was the very thing he was presenting. Another story with Fredrik Hedenus, when he asked a question, everyone answered the question correctly, but then he gave many people half points because he meant to ask a different question and there was no arguing with him. The policy instruments class was dreadful.. possibly the worst class I have taken, except for when Thomas Sterner was there- then it was one of the best. Overall though, the projects seem to be graded unfairly (depending on who your supervisor is), and most classes I was disappointed because I really wanted to learn but learned almost nothing. It feels like more of an introductory program to people that have no idea about the environment or environmental issues than people who know about this and want to do something about it. The names of the classes in the program are great, but the content and teaching skills do not reflect this.» (Severe problems with more than 2 courses)
- A course or two have been very poorly run and taught. I imagine the student-feedback post exams will show you which ones.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- gui course. also grading problems with introduct» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- superficial education in some courses» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Exams of two courses were irrelevant, not at all related to what we learnt in class.Also the tutor of one of those two courses was not good at all.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Condensed matter physics is no stroll in the park. Biological physics have content and examination for a course of 15p, but otherwise no problems at all» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- There is a big scope of improvement in the teaching of some of the courses. » (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- There are courses irrelevant to my studies, however I don"t have any more options.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Non equilibrium processes should in my opinion only be recommended to students with a background in physics, it was horrible without previous courses in statistical physics so I dropped it after a few weeks. Information theory felt hard due to its theoretical nature, whereas in Dynamical systems most the problems were caused by the introduction of Mathematica (even though Stellan does a pretty good job helping us start out) and some very hard/uninstructive exercises in the problem sets.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Difficult» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- More pedagogical teachers would make it more fun and easier. The structure in some courses was beneath contempt.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Some of the courses (Computational Phys, for example) require a lot of work put down and that you really understand the course but you usually don"t have to worry about passing, as you have many opportunities to prepare and make sure you do what"s necessary. Continue like this, make sure we learn A LOT without worrying about passing.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Greate variability in difficulty between courses some was really easy some was really hard.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Some of the courses, especially the ones about distributed systems had bad lecturers and exams. The algorithms course was hard (but good), and I feelt ill prepared for that course. I failed only one course. The reliability, realtime and security courses was good (but security was too easy).» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- One re-exam so far.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Advanced organic chemistry was a good coarse, but the workload in that coarse is huge compared to others. » (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Depends on what you mean. The administration of the courses and the possibility of choices is awful.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- I chose courses which interested me and would pose a challenge according to "go har or go home". I was not willing to invest the time and money involved in studying not to get to study what interested me. Since this involved topics which are hard for me, or which I have a lower degree of knowledge in (such as programming) it was a challenge.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- The same teacher in both courses that I had problems with...» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- I took the course Models of Computation in the second study period of the first year and failed miserably. This course and some others (Types for Programs and Proofs comes to mind) are much too hard before you take Programming Language Technology. Having taken all three mandatory courses in the program are musts if you are to take almost any elective course. Study period 2 year 1 becomes a problem when you need to select an elective course before completing all prerequisites. Make sure you clearly describe the prerequisites.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- As expected. Hard courses. But interesting.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- the work load was crazy the first semester. It would have been better if it was more even during the whole program.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Autumn was quite hard, Spring has been easier.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Only a problem due to my achievements within the course, no problems with the courses themselves.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- The courses are most often not aligned at all which causes a lot of trouble getting case groups together, planning the studies as well as to hand in seminars on a regular basis. » (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- The optimization courses were hard» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- A large change was made during our year in which the 30 HP master thesis was exchanges for a 60 credit thesis. This has lead to much confusion as the new program structure has been developed during the course .» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)

- Some studios/courses in MPARC are very well planned and administrated and some are not. Housing, good! Matter space, NOT good. Urban, bad from what i"ve heard. The working facilities are almost always a issue.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Konstig fråga! Vad är ni ute efter? Ni måste lära er ställa bättre frågor för att kunna få mätbara undersökningar. » (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Some courses were too vague and unclear what the goals of were.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- The first Nuclear Chemistry course i very difficult and the contents do not represent the examination. The coupling between theory and problem solving is very distant.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- I studied and still do alot and if i wont do that I would probably have problems with a lot of courses. I think it would be nice if they can remember that we are people sometimes, that we don"t live at school and that we deserves actual lifes. » (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Alla dagar är inte ultimata och vissa föreläsare är mindre engagerade. » (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Coming from the bachelor program Väg- och vattenbyggnad I was unprepared for the parts of the masters program that required knwledge of signals and other concepts of electronics. » (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Some things have been quite hard to do, but not to hard.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Marking system is different than what I"ve been used to in the UK so preparing for exams has been the greatest adjustment to make (and still making - as every lecturer has a preferred system of marking but one that I"m not made aware of until classmates indicate this to me or I get the results back).» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Most of the problems exist due to uninspiring teachers and shortcomings in the structure. » (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Material performance and Heat and Moisture. Fruktansvärt dåliga och ovärda kurser!» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- But then I had already taken some courses in advance and I study at Handels at the same time, so I have taken between 1 and 3 courses (at Chalmers) each study period. So its a bit hard to tell... But I would say bewteen 15-20 hours per course and period.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- It always has to do with the teachers, and in this case teachers that have too much to do around school /work/private. They all have a sort of "tunnelseende" and they don"t see what the students need or hear what they have to say. These teachers do not function as rolemodels for the students at all. » (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Very challenging, but with the proper amount of work it works out.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- MT-period was really tough» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)

- quantum physics was quite new» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- I need some more specific courses for master program. The many courses over here are I have already did in my bachelors. I am expecting master course should be streamlining our education to one particular field in a narrowed manner.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Problems here not clear, could be from the student side or the university side.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)

- I"ll never finish this damn thesis...» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Vehicle Dynamics Basic and in The advanced Vehicle Dynamics the in charge for problem solving does not explain anything.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- We had far too many group projects that were not properly evaluatd, we only got our grade and no feedback ==> little chance to improve » (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- The first course about distributed systems was okey. The one called "TDA297 Distributed systems, advanced course" was insanly hard, for me at least. Had to do the exam four times before I passed. I don"t think the teacher is very good. And the course named "DAT145 Advanced topics in computer systems and networks" was impossible to fail. Didn"t do all the assignments but passed anyway and got the exact amount of points on the exam to pass. It"s also a weird course with strange content.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)
- Mastern har varit mycket bättre än Kandidaten. Men det kan också bero på att jag haft praktik och har fått en annan syn på vilka kunskaper jag behöver ta till mig.» (Some problems but only with one or two courses)

- One course was really bad, Nanoscience.» (No major problems)
- lots of writing in the master exams, which doesn"t mean i got the knowledge, just temporarily learning some things by heart... in general examiner doesnæt seems to care about the feedback... so i did what all the other studnets before me did, just learn everything by heart, and forget it afterwards which is a lack of problem solving, analysing different perspectives etc... this can and should be improved!» (No major problems)
- Some of the courses are created to be hard only to be challenging without a real pedagogical reason behind it.» (No major problems)
- It is often too easy to pass but a lot of work for a five. It bothers me a bit that even people with lacking skills and knowledge seem to pass the courses.» (No major problems)
- Very good master"s programme. Could use some improvements with the electible courses. It has an obvious trace if you want to be good at marine structure mechanics, but for ship resistance and hydrodynamics, as is my favourite topic, some improvement is needed. Maybe more cooperation with Applied Mechanics on the topic?» (No major problems)
- Somewhere between the last two options» (No major problems)
- Some courses were challenging, but all were doable. » (No major problems)
- I don"t know if this is connected to my time answer, but I put in around 30-40h/week, and got an average above 4 in grades. Most students with a similar background as my self took 3 courses per period and received high grades by putting in (and here I guess a bit) around 40-50h. I think that the level for pass in almost all courses could be increased, and therefore lifting the weakest students. » (No major problems)
- I think some courses involve topics which we have already discussed in the biotechnology bachelor program. that is a huge dissappointment for me. I"am thinking of eg tissue engineering 1» (No major problems)

- But the level of the courses vary greatly, some courses are on a high school level, others are severely difficult and time consuming.» (No major problems)
- The autumn"s workload was much higher than the spring"s.» (No major problems)
- At the beginning it was a bit hard and stressful for me, since I was away from studying for 6 years and also the educational system was quite different from that of my country. But no major problems, one can get used to it after a study period or two :)» (No major problems)
- The work load is somewhat uneven. Sometimes I needed to spend 70 h per week, other 20 h.» (No major problems)

- At first glance it looked easy, but for deepening and synthesis, it became very interesting and some times difficult. » (No major problems)
- Too much time had to be spent on the projects, which resulted in over-working ourselves but knowledge of the area and thereby passing the exams.» (No major problems)
- It takes more time now at the master since there are group projects in all courses. In the beginning that felt hard (cause it takes a lot of time) but by now I feel that it is a very good way to learn. I study a lot on my own during weekends and similar. Because I"m interested.» (No major problems)
- It was very disappointing to learn that for instance physical ergnomics was exactly what previous students had told us - namely the samt course we had during our bachelor but now in English. The most disappointing thing was to learn that the master coordinator knew that previous students had been disappointed with the course but nothing had happened since the course examinor told him that there were no problems.. Though the course is now gone, after my year"s course evaluations.. Furthermore I would say that I have not learned very much new during my master"s compared to bachelor, that we read about the same courses. Furthermore I am disappointed in that the master"s programme has changed so much in terms of courses, which are voluntary or obligatory, since I applied for the education 5 years ago.. » (No major problems)
- But it requires more time than in the bachelor» (No major problems)
- The coarses were over all very well planned.» (No major problems)
- That does not mean that I didnt fail an exam, which i did. But it has more to do with the actual exam than the course itself. » (No major problems)
- Some lower grades in the begging but now I"m back on track again.» (No major problems)
- Studied first year in Singapore. So based on second year.» (No major problems)
- Higher tempo than bachelor studies, more structured time table and greater amount of hand-ins. However, easier to pass if you work according to the course schedule.» (No major problems)
- Great pedagogy and action-based learning model!» (No major problems)
- I managed, so no big problems, sometimes I had to spend a lot of time in school, but sometimes (especially in start of study period) we have more free time, so it all adds up somehow» (No major problems)
- challenging but because of good teaching no major problems» (No major problems)
- Few hiccups here and there, but otherwise "smooth as a butter".» (No major problems)
- I was one year in Munich so I only attended two master courses at Chalmers. Computational physics and soft matter physics, good and interesting courses.» (No major problems)
- The level of difficulty is enough, but I think the case studies and project doesn"t reflect the real world, always a little modified to be easier but I feel that these modifications/limitations are not well explained. » (No major problems)
- It was without major problems. However I"d consider to raise the bar to deliver higher quality work to end up with an excellent portfolio. Focus on coding (for prototyping) should also help in learning more and be challenging.» (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- Several courses are repitition from the bachelor and very little new is taught» (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- The exams were quite easy compared to my Bachelor studies (in Darmstadt, Germany). Exam questions usually didn"t require in-depth understanding of the subject matter.» (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- I"d like to add that I only think that passing a course was too easy or that it wasn"t particularly challenging. To excel took more effort naturally, the MP was very different from that bachelor as it involved more "soft" issues rather than being technically complex.» (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- The courses remind of each other, and are no real challenge for someone who have been studying engineering before - the program doesn"t feel like an engineering program. » (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- I expected the master programme to be rather challenging, instead it was much easier than my bachelor.» (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- The bachelor studies at Chalmers was challenging and hard. The master felt just as a transportline between this and the continuing career. Please, why must it be that simple during the MP? Why cannot the teacher demand a lot from us suddenly? At leas they could be expecting us to study those 50 hours a week the credits corresponds to! I think Chalmers has severe issues with its master programs where most of them seems to be quite easy. The scope of the masters to introduce us with more practical skills works really well. But how can it suddenly be acceptable to have half the material in one course (compared to the bachelor). How can it suddenly be acceptable to have four lectures a week?» (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- Much lower pace than during the first three years.» (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- Only problems which occur are when they change the course PM late in the course and add an academic essay. This isn"t allowed on other programmes, why is it here?» (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- Too easy to get high grades, atleast compared with Kf. I fought harder for a 3 on Kf than for a 5 here.» (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- This does not apply to all courses. But certainly the mandatory ones. » (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- Kindergarten compared to bachelor. 5 in all courses with no effort and nothing new learned. » (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- To few concrete courses. Accounting was good, but besides that it seems like every course is more or less about the same.» (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- Many courses were a bit too easy. Especially the exams were usually more similar to earlier exams, so studying old exams was far to effective to complete courses. This give an easy way to complete courses without a comprehensive knowledge in the course. Improve please!» (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- most courses are repetition of bachelor courses, in english » (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- That"s the main issue, I don"t feel I"ve learnt that much. » (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- There is a very large overlap between the bachelor and master at chalmers. I am very disappointed in having to spent a lot of time studying things I already know, instead of learning new things. » (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- It is very light and conceptual, they think we are children and they dont teach architecture, I am dissapointed, it is air and from now on I am not motivated working with sustainibility because it doesnt exist» (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- Både nivån och tempot är alldeles alldeles för lågt på Production. Efter att ha läst Z i tre år var det som att börja på gymnasiet igen. Om jag skulle ge zäta en 8a i svårighet och tempo ligger Production kanske på en väldigt svag 2a.» (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- I did have to retake the Vehicle Dynamics exam, but I feel "no real challenge" sums up my experience on the whole!» (It was too easy - no real challenge)
- question is not quite clear. does it refer to my ability to complete courses or the content or administration?» (No opinion)
- I"m actually an exchange student this year, so it"s hard to have opinions on the courses in Sweden...» (No opinion)
- I have studied my first year abroad and have thus not attended any lectures at Chalmers within this master program yet.» (No opinion)
- No way to apply creativity and a different way of thinking. Very framed assignments. No time to read deeper and make personal research for things that are or may be useful in the future. In general, the structure of the courses and particular the assignments, it seems that are focusing more in quantity instead of quality, and this is also the way that are dealt by the students. » (No opinion)

- More mandatory courses during the second semester. » (?)
- the quarters thing is pretty bad, due to the really short period of time and the curriculum it is tried to be covered at the end we do not really learn anything but apply formulas. EHealth course is management course that shouldn"t be mandatory in an engineering programme.No technical info are given during the course. Many of the courses also give brief overviews of topics so you do not learn that much. The diagnostic imaging course should be split into two specialised CT and MRI courses as it is done to many unis across the world. » (?)
- - PDE - Mathematical Modeling - Turbulence Modeling - ...» (?)
- Structures» (?)
- I think coordinators and others should be more clear about the possibilities to chose other courses outside the programe. Focus should be for all students to create a MP most suitable for them and their interests. To be able to design your own MP, even outside the chosen MP, is a great chance. If the MPDSD should be possible to chose, the couses should be better adapted for engineerstudents.» (?)
- en mer teknisk kurs där man utvceklar rena produktionssystem (mer produktutvcekling)» (?)
- Statistics» (?)
- More basic knowledge about Ansys.» (?)
- Biology is absent from a Biomedical Program. Too much focus on Engineerign courses and not focus at all to biology/biochem courses.» (?)
- I think that the optional course I am currently studying, "Environmental aspects on logistics and transportation" should be integrated in the program, easily one of the best courses I have attended at Chalmers. » (?)
- CFD(computational fluid dynamics) or any fluid flow software could be usefull..also a flow physics course there were no such course in the programe at all..and generally more fluid or water related courses it has been many geo courses in the program» (?)

- More alternatives in the prgramme selection» (Yes)
- See above - internship. It should be able to replace one semester with internship. Even if we get the internship without help from Chalmers. » (Yes)

- (Pure) Usability, Ergonomics courses» (Yes)
- more geotechnics anbd better road engineering courses» (Yes)
- Finance» (Yes)
- The master programme is too broad with no possibilities to widen the knowledge in a particular field of interest. For example, we only have ONE course in Geotechnics even tough there are plenty more to learn in this area. So instead of deepening my knowledge in Geotechnics I am forced to choose courses I am not interested in. I think this is unacceptable for a masterprogramme at Chalmers!» (Yes)
- Control courses» (Yes)

- I would like to have some course in patent rights, economics, marketing and stuff like that. I think that overall Chalmers is very bad at informing its students about what happens after you"ve had an idea. We are taught how to think when we are to solve a problem or design something but never how to protect our ideas. In my opinion a general course about such things would give our education a little bit more of an edge, and also help people who might have ideas or maybe in the future is thinking of starting their own company. » (Yes)

- Connections to industry!!!» (Yes)
- more strategic courses and more courses that are focused on applying analytical reasoning instead of learning frameworks like many of the courses are today.» (Yes)
- Perhaps some course aimed towards entrepreneurship within the chemical/process industry. I know there is an entire master program on biochemical entrepreneurship, but that is a big difference from the type of industry I"m interested in. Just during my masters thesis I have had a few interesting ideas.» (Yes)
- It would be useful to have some corporate finance course within MEI programme. Even though many of us would not be particularly interested in it, it would be useful knowledge.» (Yes)

- Stochastic processes, environmental complex systems courses.» (Yes)
- More hydraulics and hydraulic structures. » (Yes)
- programming courses» (Yes)
- More project courses like, Smart Grids» (Yes)
- a course about risk management in terms of how to deal with obstacles/problems during the course of a project (how to really face them)...maybe on the basis of case studies.» (Yes)

- Hydrogeologi» (Yes)
- More practical construction courses» (Yes)
- More practical programming courses and less theory based on mathematical proofs.» (Yes)
- I would like the quantum informatics to be semi mandatory instead of some of the bad nanoscience course in the second period where we did not learn so much. Look at the course evaluations and pick the better courses or use more choices for them. In addition we need higher level of the physics so that we really learn some. » (Yes)
- Something that is useful for our career would be nice.» (Yes)
- More elective courses in logic or algorithms» (Yes)

- Possibly some more computer oriented course.» (Yes)
- IT-innovation i.e. how to handle innovation within software development» (Yes)
- Antenna engineering» (Yes)
- It should be possible to choose courses from a larger range. For MPISC is courses like catalysis relevant, but not possible to choose for the common student today. Also more general courses such as economy could be good to actually be able to choose. » (Yes)

- Testing courses should be mandatory.» (Yes)
- Web applications using ASP.NET MVC and C#, Software as a Service (constructing web architectures using MVC and a framework like Rails). In other words, more focus on the web, because software development is moving away from standalone desktop applications, and not all of us are going to work on security-critical internal accounting systems...» (Yes)

- Radiation protection and dosimetry» (Yes)
- More problem solving,cases where the actual solution is the core. » (Yes)
- There are a lot of people with computer science background in our programme that want to become better designers. There should be more options to get design knowledge like the course graphical interfaces. This course was useful but there should be more of those. Currently it"s mostly about methodology which is ok but even repeating to some extent while interface design and skills like sketching, color theory, compositions and so on are not available. It would also be nice to able to take some bachelor level design courses (Industrial/Product Design) but these are in Swedish only and require to be in the owner programme.» (Yes)

- A more environmentally oriented course» (Yes)
- Since I am interested in the "Image" track, I think it would be good to have more elective courses related to image processing. Usually those courses are in the Computer Science programme, such as Algorithms, Machine Learning, etc. For example, I was asked in a interview for a master"s thesis in a big company if I had some experience in Machine Learning. The master"s thesis was about medical image processing, and the company was Philips Research.» (Yes)
- Some information about that it could be good to read a course in basic computer networks. (ECUs, CAN-buses, safety critical (fail tolerant/safe), etc» (Yes)
- I don"t know specific cources but sometimes I think the amount of theory is a bit too low. » (Yes)
- More studio cources. All the theoretical cources within the master programme where lower quality than the studio cources. They did not reach the same level of academia and some where even a complete waste of time.» (Yes)
- We have a course called "Routing Technology" which corresponds to CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate). I suggest to add another course which corresponds to CCNP (Cisco Certified Network Professional) for students interested in this field.» (Yes)
- Mer trafik och överlag mer kurser att välja på, vi har ju för fan inget att välja på, helt bedrövligt!» (Yes)
- A course about the technological aspects of certain renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and wave power, and not just the system perspective.» (Yes)
- I would like to see a course which focuses on applying theoretical knowledge on practical experiments that does not involve only measurements. Something along the lines of building speakers.» (Yes)
- Design of foundations» (Yes)
- Databases» (Yes)
- More courses related to Software Engineering. Also courses about Software Design.» (Yes)

- At the moment, there are courses like "Galaxies and observational cosmology", "Interstellar medium and star formation". We need individual courses instead of combining two large fields and studying them over just 7 weeks.» (Yes)
- More communication and get rid of many of the nonmandatory courses.» (Yes)
- we need a bigger possibility to choose courses that we are interested in but when they are mandatory in the program, that is difficult. For example, if I want to work with geotechnics - why on earth shall I have to take Drinking water engineering? That makes no sense. The course is really interesting of course but I mean that I don"t see the reason for having it as mandatory. Overall a greater number of courses to choose between is needed, in order to really fit your eduction to your interest. If I want to work with geology/geotekniks then I would need more courses about that and if I want to work with water I would need more courses about that. Now, the courses subjects are so different and mixed that it feel as I don"t become something, I just have a large mix of infrastructure things. There are several courses that are not really good and dont suit really, might be interesting but they dont fit to what I want to work with. If there were sevral courses to choose between, it would be much better. The program is called "infrastructure ... " but we only have one road-coarse! And nothing about railway! That is really bad. Overall, since the program doesn"t provide alternatives to the courses, they should aim at helping us taking relevant courses at other schools instead!» (Yes)
- Service Design, Strategic Design» (Yes)
- HVDC or FACTS courses(In detail)» (Yes)
- material-nano-course» (Yes)
- CATIA!» (Yes)

- More courses in geotechnics. Definitely.» (Yes)
- Advanced classical mechanics and group theory» (Yes)
- More technical and project management subjects. » (Yes)

We create for everyone, and we really need to learn how to communicate our visions and ideas, and how to formulate questions, to people that hasn"t been brainwashed with architectural terms and frases. We need to burst the bubble in some how! » (Yes)
- Elective courses should be more related to the mandatory courses.» (Yes)
- some medical oriented courses, more genetics/molecular biology courses » (Yes)
- sustainable power production and transport» (Yes)
- More courses within biophysics could be included into the semi- compulsory courses. Especialy "Biological physics", some of the computational biology courses, and/or "non-equillibrium processes in physics, chemistry and biology".» (Yes)
- More topics in the area of neural networks, artificial intelligence.» (Yes)
- "Develop systems and applications (Programming)" - This is sset as a goal although there is no specific programming course in the master program.» (Yes)
- The distribution of courses was a bit skewed, not giving many choices in some study periods and lots other study periods. Might be good to even out a bit» (Yes)
- Ability to choose more courses from the sustainable energy systems curriculum. Make more courses compulsory-elective.» (Yes)
- Strategic Management» (Yes)

- Cellulose Technology and Biorefinery» (Yes (1 to 2))
- mechatronic design» (Yes (1 to 2))
- modelling and simulation» (Yes (1 to 2))
- I think "Heat and moisture" should be reorganized a bit, besides the already great job going on there. Also, "Structural dynamics" was an very interesting-great course, but if it could be linked a bit more to the content of civil engineering would be even better. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- MDE, low quality course. Should not be mandatory.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Applied nuclear chemistry, at least the way it was taught with G Skarnemark» (Yes (1 to 2))

- Dynamical systems, Complex system seminar» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Modelling and simulation!!» (Yes (1 to 2))
- PPU080 Advanced computer aided design Theoretical part was not useful nor practical at all, and exam didn"t support understanding, just repetitive memory. The practical drawing part was very good, and I feel the full focus should have been on that and more time spent there. It the theoretical part is to be continued, the teaching method should be improved - very dull lectures, which where hard to follow. Possibly alternative software, such as SolidWorks could be introduced, as smaller companies you might work for later do not afford to use Catia. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- The PLM-course in the second year, it was not good.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The organization of the Master theses. You have to have the dates for handing in the report when you START the corse not the same day you hand it in. As happened to me. One of you"re tasks is to organize youre time, but that is not possible if you don´,t get the limitations(dates for handing in and presenting). This will also reduce the stress on the students.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- I think Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligense needs to be looked at. Good courses, but poor execution.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Materials Performance should use the course litterature more thoroughly and present ALL materials therein» (Yes (1 to 2))
- It has already happened. » (Yes (1 to 2))

- Systems Biology» (Yes (1 to 2))
- HVAC engineering, Industrial Energy Systems should be at least moved from compulsory to semi-compulsory» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The course in Sustainable electric power systems needs to be reworked. It was very interesting but it needs some work to be good. Heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems engineering needs to be heavily remade or removed. The topic fits the program but the course itself did not. It contained far too much repetition to be good. We do not need to spend two weeks learning what a heat pump is when we in a parallel course learned how to design them. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Fundamentals of photonics. Either make it totally different or remove it. Too basic and unclear» (Yes (1 to 2))
- discrete event systems. not a very useful course.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Managerial Economics which is a bit poorly designed in my opinion. It"s an easy course but students gain little from it» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Advanced Software Architecture should focus more on software solutions instead of hardware. Less focus on executable modeling tools. » (Yes (1 to 2))

- MTT046 Metal processing» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The knowledge and learning in organizations course should be revised. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- "nordic architecture" (yr 4) felt like it was only meant for exchange students, but for some reasons it was compulsory for swedish students as well. workshop (yr 3): it"s a great idea to let students try making furniture. it"s a bad idea allowing 15 people doing so, while the rest have to do a "traffic workshop".» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Some courses are to much repetative if you took your bachellor at CTH» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Both mandatory materials courses in the first semester, "heat and moisture" and "material performance", are both really bad when it comes to layout, structure and teaching. The later use of them is very questionable, it would have been better to have courses regarding have building materials behave in constructions and more general about heat and moisture design» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Customer Relationships in reading period 4. Badly defined what is required of the students. I would not suggest to remove it but more clearly state what the course is about.» (Yes (1 to 2))

- Applied mechatronics» (Yes (1 to 2))
- flum femen behövdes väll inte ?» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Production flow - extremely uninteresting course, if left more broad focus, not only Volvo Freight transport system - some parts are interesteing, but in general too simple and weird course OPC and CRM - both might be good in the program but could have been made much more interesting than they are today» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Knowledge and learning was a very weak course, as well as lectures on International projects.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The course in Foundations of Microwave Engineering is too wide, it should be divided into two courses. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Modelling and problem solving in civil engineering » (Yes (1 to 2))
- "evolutionary genomics BIO442" at GU as an elective course like "protein engineering" is. This course is based on statistics and systems biology as well as new theory about genetics and opulation genomics. http://www.utbildning.gu.se/kurser/kurs_information/?courseId=BIO442» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The first course about sustainibility, the general one is totally empy. I didnt learn anything and it didnt presented one single solution, just problems that everybody knows» (Yes (1 to 2))

- System biology Analytical Chemistry (good content, it is how the information is handled that needs to be revised. no course homepage etc)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- the systems biology course is really bad» (Yes (1 to 2))
- It"s strange to have a course about the theory behind artificial neural networks, before playing with them in practice. In my opinion theory should come second, in cases where there are practical problems. Otherwise you get no curiosity from trying to improve or understand them, rather you get bogged down in things you have no experience of, and no general picture of, which is killing the enjoyment at the implementation level. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- I was very fascinated by systems biology before I started the master but the course was very unstructured and made my interest die quickly. However, the exercises were good due to Tobias, who was very enthusiastic and pedagogic. Some kind of simulation project (like in industrial biotechnology but easier)would have been interesting as simulations are such a big part of systems biology.» (Yes (1 to 2))

- There have been a lot of complaints about MDE and SPLE. I think most students do not see the point of these technologies and get hung up on the immature tools.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Changes in the distribution of time. Sometimes it has been very much to do, and sometimes not so much at all. A more even distribution of the content of the courses could be helpful.» (Yes (1 to 2))

- International business relationships» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Surface engineering feels too general» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Idea evaluation had a supreme concept based on three evaluation reports. This was great. The exam on the other hand treated sustainability extensively. It was just ridiculous to run the content of the course on one purpose whereas the exam was another one. I do not claim that sustainability should be taken from the course. But as it looks for now the course focus is according to the exam a matter of business and environmental sustainability, and minor on evaluation: put the focus to evaluation and develop that further, focus the sustainability to the evaluation aspect, cut the rest.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Urban Metabolism» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The prestudy course» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Condensed Matter Physics is a course containing interesting physics but I believe it should be better conducted, as it feels one does not get a good feeling of the subject, and it would be nice to understand some concepts of the course in a more intuitive way.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Construction Governance Environmental Management» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Artificial intelligence. This course was, when I took it, in my opinion pointless. All I learnt was to write essays, seeing as that took 80-90% of the time each week. It would be better if they actually taught us something useful instead of forcing us to write essay after essay, week after week. Unless this course doesn"t change I do not see any reason of forcing all students of the CSALL masters programme to take this course as it just a waste of their time.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Construction Governance» (Yes (1 to 2))
- ehealth» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Risk Management needs to be revised» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Advanced CAD, that was held last autumn. The lectures seemed to make no sense at all and did not cooperate with the excersises. The excersises were how ever good. » (Yes (1 to 2))
- Engineering of Automotive Systems. 90% was so ridiculously basic, if you didn"t know the material, you had no right signing up for a MASTERS in automotive engineering! ICE Advanced was also very shallow. I looked at a bunch of results from R&D regarding injector sprays, but learned nothing of how to design an engine. I bet most people don"t know that pistons should be barreled to account for asymmetric thermal expansion - something I learned in my Bachelor"s engines class.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- DAT110» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Aethetics of Interaction, Interaction of Social Media should be defenitely revised. Methods of Interaction. Human Center Design didn"t bring any knowledge even if it looked interesting at the beginning. It could be wiped.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Remove Urban Metabolism and give us a choice if we want to be a Water or and Geo engineer.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Logic in Computer Science - Way to easy. Definitely bachelor level.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- I haven"t taken the course, but from what I heard the social media course may need a makeover to provide students with skills and information that can be of more practical use.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- Software Leadership and Quality Management (I hear it"s already been modified, don"t know if it"s better now)» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The Design and Communication Tools course was a bit messy.» (Yes (1 to 2))
- The introduction course, the safety course, the introduction course to vehicle dynamics. » (Yes (3 to 4))
- Some lecturers are really not so good, hence their courses are bad as well.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Especially Project Management» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Modern imaging: could be more advanced. Soft matter: examination does not match teaching, teaching and literature is simplistic whereas exams seems to match goals.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Systems biology Advanced analytical chemistry Industrial biotechnology they are all good in some ways but they should not be mandatory!» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Artificial neural networks- Computational Biology (All courses which hold by Bernhard mehling) - Dynamical systems - Simulation of complex systems and seminars » (Yes (3 to 4))
- If you´,re not interested of the safety courses it would be nice to make them avalible but not mandytory so you could adapt the course plan for your self better. plus add more and better courses for the first semester in the second year. i.e. hands on applications or more towards dynamics/engines.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Image Analysis: It belongs to the Biomedical Engineering Master and its content is irrelevant to the Communication Engineering Master. Same for, Computer Networks, Circuit Design etc.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Advanced Form 1, Advanced Form 2, Ergonomics design for all, IDE-project» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Repetition of some of the courses! Move some of the courses to be better suited in year 2 instead of year 1, the mandatory courses in year 1 was very depressing, negative and seems sto be lacking understanding of the society and engineering parts..» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Göran Lindahls courses has had a lack of structure and administration.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Water recourses, modelling and problemsolveing, drinkingwater, Gis» (Yes (3 to 4))
- I have not liked any of the manditory courses. I don"t feel it is something i will use in the future and i think they should not be manditory. it just feels like a waste of time.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- 1) Design and planning for social inclusion and Planning and Design for Sustainable Development in a Local Context should be merge in only one. (22.5 cr) 2)Architectural Heritage and Urban Transformation and Architectural conservation and transformation should merge in only one course. (7.5cr) 3)Solar Decathlon should be an stand alone course out of the master and accross Chalmers schools, so will be more accessible for other carrers to apply. This course need many different backgrounds. (15cr) » (Yes (3 to 4))
- Applied signal processing, » (Yes (3 to 4))
- Computer networks, Distributed systems, Distributed Systems Advanced, Computer security, Network Security» (Yes (3 to 4))
- The structure of the Turbomachinery and the Gas turbine technology courses is not good. The workload in the CFD course is quite heavy, especially since the Structural Dynamics course running during the same time also is quite heavy. » (Yes (3 to 4))
- Urban Metabolism Modelling and Problem solving More focus on hydraulics in the water engineering courses or create separate hydraulic courses » (Yes (3 to 4))
- probably the ones that i didn"t take» (Yes (3 to 4))
- the distributed systems courses, Computer systems and networks, operatingsystems, advanced topics» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Life Cycle Assessment, Environmental Systems Analysis, Environmental Management» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Urban traffick planning (remade), have possibilities in the first term the first year and remove urban metabolism (if we want to study enviroment we can choose the enviroment programme instead)» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Operating Systems needs to be modernized. Distributed Systems was also rather bad when I took it, but a new teacher is giving the course now, and I understand that it is much better now. "Advanced topics in computer systems and networks" was too much repetition of other courses, and not enough advanced topics or research preparation. » (Yes (3 to 4))
- There are too many other semi compulsary courses that have students from too many different backgrounds that are on a high school physics level (e.g. modern imaging, surface and nano physics).» (Yes (3 to 4))
- i think that these course are already revised from when i took them» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Computational biology 1 and 2 Dynamical Systems» (Yes (3 to 4))
- wastewater most be revised, modeling revieced. urban metabolism removed» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Materials performance and Heat and moisture engingeering, these are by far the worst courses I have taken during my time at Chalmers. Also, the teachers are not interesed in improving the courses. Geotechnics was not very good, low standards.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Om man hade läst virtuell produktion och industriell produktion och organistaion innan, kändes både production systems och production management onödiga. Projektkursen (project course pre-study) behöver struktureras om. kändes bara som ytterligare ett IKOT/kandidat-arbete. Det var för mycket fokus på HUR man driver projekt istället för att göra det. » (Yes (3 to 4))
- Building material sciences can be removed. We did the same lab"s as in the basic course in the BSc-program (Byggnadsmaterial) - "it can be fun for the international students". They did not think it was fun, nor did we who conducted the lab a second time with the twist that it had to be done in english. Heat and moisture and the 2nd concrete course needs revisions.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Advanced Software Engineering was a disappointment, too disconnected from real life, AADL-part a total waste of time. Lectures in Model Drive Software Development were very uneven in quality. Project Management was a great course overall, but amazed that a teacher who consistently receives dismal assessments (Per) is allowed to stay on. Agile Development Processes has too little teacher supervision.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- 1.Advanced distributed systems. This course need to be heavily revised. I am wondering why it is still the same many years. Please do something, the course topics, the labs, the goals are very interesting but the lectures are BAD BAD BAD. The issue is in the prof himself and I am sorry to say that. Please refer to te course evaluation of this course. 2.Computer networking (self stabilization topic only) 3. Parallel and distributed real time systems (OP completness topic only)» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Systemet med "semiobligatoriska kurser" är bara ett sätt att gå runt reglerna för hur många poäng som ska vara valbara, och för att utrycka sig internationellt är det "pure BS". Antingen kan ni ta bort möjligheten till att ha valbara poäng på masternivå eller så får ni hålla er till de reglerna som finns. Att uppfinna kompromisser för att tänja på reglerna skapar bara irritation och ett oseriöst intryck.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Model driven engineering, Software product line engineering, Software evolution project» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Revised: Materials performance, Heat and moisture engineering, Geotechnics, Structural dynamics (the course seems suitable for Applied mechanics only)» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Water reasourses (from Lp1), almost every lecture was about the same thing and the project did not give anything at all. Modelling and problem solving (Lp2), dont know why I had to take it. Useless. Wastewater engineering (Lp4): the project has been very bad. Not clear what should be done nor how to do it. Geotechnics (Lp4): I feel that it is too difficalt/too high level with the knowledge I got. » (Yes (3 to 4))
- Moci - to large!!!!! was like a 15 hp course Governance - no one in my class really understood what it was about. » (Yes (3 to 4))
- In the machine learning course we are expected to know a lot of Matlab programming, something that we don"t do with our background. This is an unreasonable requirement. The course software engineering using formal methods, the lectures are even ridiculous! Someone that have taken a bachelor in Datateknik should know the difference of for example "and" and "or". You must be expected to know this after 3 years of studies! Same thing in Artificial Intelligence! Knowing basic logic should be seen as a prerequisite.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Design systems - worst cource I ever took. Sustainable development and Nordic architecture should be heavily revised - it"s not accetable to have sources that are mainly aimed at exchange students. The majority of the students are still swedish students.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Seminar, dynamical systems, simulation » (Yes (3 to 4))
- See my comments above. Urban metabolism - there must be other courses to chose between! Drinking water engineering - was not well organized, I almost was ashamed since this was the first thing that all students from abroad met at Chalmers. And then it was just repetition of thing we hade already learnt in the bachelor. felt really unnecessary. Modelling and problem solving in civil eningineering - a mixtur og things ... why (!?) is this course mandatory? Make it better in that case.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Material performance. Heat and Moisture. Indoor climate and HVAC» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Materials performance and Heat and moisture must definitely be HEAVILY revised. Probably all teachers in those courses, Tang Luping & Bengt Dellming, must be replaced! This is 2 mandatory introductory courses and they are really terrible! HVAC and ondoor climate is a course I had high expectations on, but it was a disaster, the teachers in this course were terrible and the structure of the course was totally missing!» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Medical imaging Bioelectromagnetics » (Yes (3 to 4))
- There are several courses that are very much repetition from the bachelor courses. Also several courses needs to be reorganised to have a clear structure.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Research design and methods should be taught in bachelor program since the students are expected to use the methodology in all project work anyways» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Financial risk (MVE220), Partiella differentialekvationer, grundkurs (TMA372), Mathematical modelling (MVE160)» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Design processes and management, Should be revised or removed. Managing organizations in the construction industry, should be shortened. Construction Governance, should not end with a test, rather an article. » (Yes (3 to 4))
- Courses like applied signal or modeling and simulation are don"t do anything with biomedical, rather than pure engineering courses.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Marine transport systems, marine propulsion systems should be revised at least» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Material performance and heat and moisture engineering - only a repetition to byggnasdmaterial and byggnadsfysik with no new relevant information. Heat and moisture i studied for 4 days and got a 5. The course is also too easy. Structural systmes, design and assessment. A course book would be good.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Modelling and problem solving (didnt taught us anything), water resources (worst organisation ever), drinking water (repetition of bachelor course hydraulik), and giving a "ground" course in urban metabolism as the last course before the thesis is ridicolus» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Systems biology: this course was very unstructured, and I cannot say I learned very much from it. A couple of the lecturers had not good ability to teach in english. Concepts of systems biology could however be very useful, so the course should be kept. Industrial biotechnology: within by track in the programme (Biomaterials and tissue engineering), I have felt no use of this course. Most of the necessary knowledge in this subject area I have gained from Bioreaktionsteknik and other courses in the Bachelor programme. I think the course should be made optional and a track course for the Biomedicine and biotechnology track. Biological materials: this course could be improved in structure, as well as with lecture and examination. The exam and project for this course did not really require any great effort. A problem for the learning was that it was not so good literature.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Psychology and leadership can be delivered in one course. International project and risk can be delivered in one course. 3PM must revised. Methods must be delivered in the 1st year. Chalmers" supervisors must grade the theses. Replace Northumbria by another university. » (Yes (3 to 4))
- Remove BOM090 and BOM055. Revise BOM030 and BOM070. » (Yes (3 to 4))
- Operations Strategy did not give much more than the week in the QOM-course. The elective project should be presented and choosen at the same time. The Operations Improvement Project was not as good as hoped. Comming from the Ind.ek bachelor much in the QOM-course were repetition and could have been read as a 7.5p course. The elective Production Logistics course felt as a Bachelor course and would be much better with more discussion of logistic strategies and decisions.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Design systems too easy, vague, and simplistic. Design for social inclusion. fewer workshops, more urban theory.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- I havent"t had the course urban metabolism yet, but from the parts that covered that in the Modelling course i am not particulary looking forward to it. Also friends who have taken the course said it wasn"t very good.» (Yes (3 to 4))
- Engineering of Automotive Systems, Vehicle Traffic and Safety and RVAD(It was a very general course)» (Yes (3 to 4))
- I think the courses related to water and waste water should be divided to at least 4 courses which has more concentration on quality of water, hydraulic aspect, treatment process, water recourse management. » (Yes (3 to 4))
- See comment above!» (Yes more than 5)
- The WET-courses are a mess. There should be less of them or put in another program entirely. Urban Metabolism should also be removed since it can"t provide anything useful.» (Yes more than 5)
- 1- Artificial Neural networks 2- Computational Biology A 3- Computational Biology B 4- Dynamical Systems 5- Complex Systems Simulation 6- Complex Systems Seminar 7- ... » (Yes more than 5)
- I"m on my last year now and I feel that it has been the same content in more or less every course from the beginning. Having courses at both Chalmers and GU poses a real problem as to controling the content in the courses. Today the overlap is so big that i feel really bored going to the lectures since it"s sometimes the 4th time hearing the same things.» (Yes more than 5)
- Almost all should be heavily revised, and some removed. I expect that this will happen once this programme starts having their course PMs evaluated.» (Yes more than 5)
- You should give more courses for student selecting. For the first study period, we have two fixed compulsory courses, however for the first period of the second year, there are only two courses can be selected. What"s the meaning of this course selection?» (Yes more than 5)
- It is more about compressing them and refine the education so that more can be taught during the same amount of time. » (Yes more than 5)
- Most of the elective courses should hold a higher level.» (Yes more than 5)
- Remove the overlap!» (Yes more than 5)
- System Biology course.» (Yes more than 5)
- Tex alla "produktionskurserna" var så snarlika att det skulle kunna slåss ihop till en kurs.» (Yes more than 5)
- I think the classes that are in the program are good, but the execution is terrible. For example, LCA is crucial in this program, but no one learned anything because it seems like teachers were learning with the students and couldn"t ever give a concrete response or explanation. You just did whatever you want basically. And how come we"re supposed to do an LCA in the LCA class if we already did one for ESA? The ESA one was harder, far more educational, we had to do our own research, and that"s the class we take first... perhaps LCA should be taught first, then ESA.» (Yes more than 5)
- But there should be more options to choose, the decision of which courses are compulsory elective and which are only elective is somewhat unfair and stop you from doing what you find interesting.» (No)
- None of the mandatory. However, some of the elective courses, for example biological physics, needs improvements» (No)
- There are plenty of courses to choose, and hard to get any guidance in what subject to study.» (No)
- My program is very flexible within the CS field, and this is a good thing. Keep the choices.» (No)
- Just improved.» (No)
- Don"t remove courses, expand the programme» (No)
- Not at master level. in the whole civ ing program there are lots of courses that could be heavily improved.» (No)
- More "räkneövningar" as in the old times.» (No)
- One does not have to remove any courses and it would not be advisable to do so since different students have different goals in mind. However, some of the courses which are mandatory today are COMPLETELY meaningless to student who want to pursue a purely theoretical career, and these courses also prevent us from taking meaningful courses such as group theory and classic field theory which are ABSOLUTELY essential to us. We cannot continue our careers without these courses and much of what we study is difficult, or even impossible, to understand since we lack necessary knowledge in several key areas of theoretical physics.» (No)
- I dont think anything should be removed altogether. But I do believe that the courses in traffic and road etc are too similar, and too easy.» (No)
- Just a slightly more variable examination to encourage studying of the whole course, not just old exams.» (No)
- But better coordination should be made between courses. For example did the TCIT course and R&D Strategy overlap a lot. And we want to learn new things and not repeat what has already been learned. » (No)
- add more courses make från idé till färdig byggnad a compulsary course» (No)
- I have studied my first year abroad and have thus not attended any lectures at Chalmers within this master program yet.» (No opinion)

- from 2010 , there is no even one contact between me and my coordinator (is it usual left student on their own at Chalmers ?!)» (Not at all)
- My bachelor coordinator was good. But at master-level nobody knew nothing.» (Not at all)
- Our program coordinator has not been helpful, but harmful. Please, please, please, choose people with some sense of responsibility and people who like to help students, not people with mental problems.» (Not at all)
- Chalmers needs to make it easier for students to go on exchanges. This is done through cooperation and communication with partner schools.» (Not at all)
- The support you get as an exchange student (in my case, through the world wide program) was simply appalling! It"s incredible that Chalmers sends students on a 1 year exchange, and then only allow the students to transfer 1 semester (30 hp) of credits. The support we got from the student centre was poor, with emails containing phrases like "Study the courses you"re interested in, and then we"ll see if you will be able to transfer the credits, once you get home." After threatening to discontinue our exchange, we got 45 credits transferred from our exchange, but it shouldn"t be necessary to take Chalmers courses remotely, as well as study above 100% tempo in order to graduate in time, just because you participated in an exchange program. My friends and I did just this, as a result of the fact that we wouldn"t get all 60 credits transferred from our exchange year. This is simply embarrassing, and something that threatens Chalmers" international presence, as students don"t want to put in the extra effort that is required when studying abroad. » (Not at all)
- När jag behövde hjälp med kurser etc var det ingen som kunde svara på mina frågor och försökte inte heller att ta reda på det. Detta är oacceptabelt, anledningen till att man går till studiecentrum är att man vill få svar på frågor som är svåra att leta upp själva. Fick bättre hjälp av studievägledare från min grundutbildning (Lilian Sandström) och Johan Bankel än de som skulle kunna svara på frågorna. Därefter har jag endast vänt mig till dessa. » (Not at all)
- For the administration (Feretti/Mellander): Keep up the good job. For the Student centre: Start doing your job! Everything you are supposed to do, it seems you either don"t do it or do it wrong.» (Not at all)
- I did not get ANY information about when my master prgramme would start even though I registered for it. When I started the MT I emailed the student centre and got a reply, but then I still wasn"t included when information was sent out by email about the MT and I had to ask class mates to forward all information to me.» (Not at all)
- Do your job: Be there to answer questions (have time!) Know what you are talking about!» (Not at all)
- Learn about the program and it"s courses. » (Not at all)
- Slow working stuff!» (Not so satisfied)
- Decisionmaking is too centralized. Talking to the programme coordinator it seems that she has no influence on how the programme is formed. » (Not so satisfied)
- After my exchange I got almost no help with reporting my courses and the student centre counsellor was very reluctant to give me credits for all of my courses even though I brought diplomas from them. I never got credits for my language courses. » (Not so satisfied)
- Need to automate the information to and from ping-pong» (Not so satisfied)
- It was better before the restructuring. Way better.» (Not so satisfied)
- faster» (Not so satisfied)
- Gabrielle Ferreti är oerhört bra som masterkoordinator.» (Not so satisfied)
- The programme team is great, but the centre in the library has a hard time helping me since my study plan is quite complicated.» (Not so satisfied)
- Please support us, the students. Based on me and my friends experiences, 90% of the time, it feels like you are working against us. Another thing, where were you when we were suppose to pick master thesis? There is always information about how to elect courses (which most of the 4th year students can handle) but when it"s time to start looking for a thesis, there is no information at all!» (Not so satisfied)
- It is hard when they moved away. Much better when you could drop by and get help.» (Not so satisfied)
- voice mail information is inaccurate resulting in me visiting their office a number of times when it isn"t open and when the "right people" weren"t there» (Not so satisfied)
- Chalmers Architecture seems to have a lot of problems with the administration, and this goes for the entire section, are the staff communicating to each other? Nothing really works here, when courses start, course information, booking lecture halls, fixing the paper work before the master starts, all this is very fuzzy on chalmers.» (Not so satisfied)
- More visible on the campus! I come från another part of Chalmers (Lindholmen) and therefor do not know ere to turn or were to go.» (Not so satisfied)
- When criticism was brought to the program director she wasn"t very helpful, and when trying to make the best of the situation by complementing with courses from other Universities we have had to do it on our own since the programme director was reluctant to do so. It feels like it has to do with the fact that the programme director is a part of the WET-institution and is not at all interested in expanding the geotechnics courses at the expense of the courses that WET gives.» (Neither/Nor)
- I"ve had no contact with the student centre and little with the programme administration.» (Neither/Nor)
- Dont visit» (Neither/Nor)
- I"m not sure I know what the Student centre is supposed to be. If I need a certification of my studies I go there, also for some formalities like course registrations. Once I had a course of mine cancelled and I had to pick a new one and I thought the student centre or a school councellor might advice me. But there was no personal assistance, it was just a formality. » (Neither/Nor)
- It would be good if the adninistration knew what there responsibilities are and can guide the students in a good way.» (Neither/Nor)
- As far as I can remember, I did not receive any information at all on how to go about starting with my master thesis. Also, when I decided to register my project, I talked to the student centre and got a form to be filled in. This was wrong though, since my programme uses another registration form. Registering took a lot longer than expected because of this, and I wasn"t sure if everything had worked or not. Another thing: since I didn"t register my thesis project before the start of the last semester, I had no registered courses. This means I could not register myself as a student of the programme for the semester in the student portal. I couldn"t register, so I couldn"t choose any other courses and access some other student portal functionality. The student centre helped me solve this, but it complicated things for me a lot.» (Neither/Nor)
- Administrator seems nice and projects the will to improve the programme, but you have to ask yourself of the task is too difficult for her or if she isn"t getting the needed resources, because the state of the programme is frankly dismal.» (Neither/Nor)
- It was better when you could visit Sylvia Pompe and the others in the building to the right of Olgas trappor.» (Neither/Nor)
- No comments.» (Neither/Nor)
- Havent had contact with them» (Neither/Nor)
- Havnt been in contact with them.» (Neither/Nor)
- Where are they, who are they, how can they help me, what"s their job? What, why, how, when!?!??!?! » (Neither/Nor)
- The coordinators should not be on vacation when there is deadlines for applications for courses and such things» (Neither/Nor)
- I have no clue why I don"t have access to any of the buildings any more, even though I"m registered. I didn"t do anything wrong, and don"t have time to fix problems I didn"t cause. I don"t know who to contact anyway. » (Neither/Nor)
- Barely been in contact with the SC.» (Neither/Nor)
- Wanted to book a time once to talk about my studies but it just culminated into nothing cause of the unwillingness to help. Although I have always received great help when I asked to register for a course or asked something else.» (Neither/Nor)
- More information about master thesis would be nice. Gather it all in one page instead of having some information on the (crappy) Student Portal, some on Graham"s project pages, some on the programme homepage and so on» (Satisfied)
- Information was very good in the first year, but got a lot less in second year. Regarding the master"s thesis, we did not get any advice whatsoever.» (Satisfied)
- This programme (and Infrastructure and Environmental Engineering) is too broad. They try to fit in both water treatment, technical geology, infrastructure, road, traffic, environment and geotechnics. There are no opportunities except the master thesis to specialise in the subject you"re interested in, despite what subject that is, and you are obliged to read courses that are of no use too you and are not within your field of interest.» (Satisfied)
- There NEEDS to exist some kind of centralised information source about the programme and courses online.» (Satisfied)
- This is mainly due to Lilian Sandström who is excellent and well known amongst Mechanical Engineer students. » (Satisfied)
- Course evaluations from earlier periods should be available online in the course"s webpage in the sameway as how the earlier exams in courses" webpages.» (Satisfied)
- Sven-Arne Andreasson should never be left in charge of sending important information, as he has proven on several occasions.» (Satisfied)
- Anna Goffe is wonderfully helpful!» (Satisfied)
- The master coordinator need to be more engaged in the progran.» (Satisfied)
- havent had much interaction with student centre» (Satisfied)
- I suggest that the program coordinator should organize more events for students and talk to students more often.» (Satisfied)
- make Malin more motivated to develop the program to get a better repitation. get use of the connections from companies and find out what is expected from the students to learn.» (Very satisfied)
- Programme administrator in IPM is execellent - always very helpfull » (Very satisfied)
- Our coordinator (Lars Almefelt) is very invested in students and takes the time required to get to know them. Although he sometimes can be very talkative, digressions are not uncommon, he"s passionate about his field, a passion which he manages to rub off onto students.» (Very satisfied)
- Replace the programme director Göran Lindahl. » (Very satisfied)
- Got some really good help from the student centre » (Very satisfied)
- Haven"t really had any contact» (No opinion)
- The rules from Chalmers are not followed. Rules such as correction of the exam within 3 weeks etc are ignored. » (No opinion)
- not been in contact» (No opinion)
- MPSYS has very little binding the program together, as opposed to say, Produt Development, which, as I uderstand it is more of a "program" than just a collection of courses» (No opinion)
- The administration in this master program sucks. Teachers cannot communicate, they put mandatory things on the same time same day, they cannot keep the 3-weeks rule that you should get your grade within, they cannot keep the times!! We should have 45 min lecture and 15 min break, they never apply to this.» (No opinion)
- Our director seems to be open to take critique and hear about opinions. The problem is that in most cases there won"t be any consequences. We were encouraged to ask for courses that we would like to see but when we ask it is most likely "Too bad, we can"t change that." Also complains about teachers that do a poor course administrations like providing information very late on the web page, having workloads that are too high for their courses and not keeping deadlines for grading seem to be noticed and forgotten.» (No opinion)
- What can they do for me?» (No opinion)
- Never visit them» (No opinion)

- Not, as I said is pure engineer rather than biomedical engineering. I would choose Biotechnology program» (?)
- Some of the courses does not add any value. It"s mainly common sense and the courses are trying to much to make it more difficult than it is.» (No)
- Det finns väldigt få jobb inom detta området och många av det jobben som finns passar på att utnyttja ny-examinerad till sämre villkor. För min del löste det sig bra eftersom jag har en dubbelexamen inom ekonomi också.» (No)
- NOt hard enough, some courses are to easy and I think I would have gained more experience by studying fro construction instead wwith teh geotechnical parts only from infrastructural engeineering programme» (No)
- just waste of time , there is no future for me as foreigner student , » (No)
- I"m interested in Geotechnics and not water. If I would have gotten the information that choosing the construction MP would give me equal opportunity to study geotechnics, I would have chosen that instead.» (No)
- Its too much matlab and in the bachelor its almost non matlab.» (No)
- 1. The 7 weeks quarter based system is 100% shit. One does not have time to really learn something and deepen into the concepts. The main aim of the Education system is to help students to learn and go deep into the science not just get rid of that in 7 weeks. 2. The tuition fee is too high. There are hundreds of much better Universities in Europe with higher level and much cheaper than here. It is not worth to waste that money here. It would be still expensive if they make it free again. Plus, people in Sweden do not know what they are losing by repelling students from their country. So, one should not approach such a system, I mean one should go where the host is more hospitable. 3- The teachers are awful here. I learned all things myself, except for 2 or three teachers, the rest were even distracting. I could learn these things without attending in the lectures. So, I wasted my time in the lectures. 4- The University does not care about its students and their opinions. Almost everyone I met was unsatisfied and all people are complaining in forms like this but the University cannot or does not want to change itself in favor of the Students. » (No)
- there are very less job opportunities in this field.» (No)
- Too much work for learning so little that we actually can use once we start working.» (No)
- There is nothing I would call architectural studies at Chalmers. » (No)
- i would learn more if I read the konstruction master and chooced the geotechnics» (No)
- It is pretty much a scam at this point.» (No)
- The programme has been very unstructured. A lot of new teachers all the time which has not been correctly introduced to Chalmers and how we study here. The quality of the courses have varied a lot. Exam results have several times been many weeks late. Course pages are up late.» (No)
- I feel I can not learn anything from Lecture. Most of time, I had to teach myself even though no lectures were skipped. I feel like the lectures in Chalmers are useless. I admit professors are very sciential, but they just don"t know how to spread the knowledge to students. I am a fee paying student, 280,000 for two years study. I even have no right to replace the course I have taken after 3 weeks. This amount of money is almost the whole year salary for a PhD student (after tax). Why do I choose pay 280,000 for Chalmers and study by myself? Paying the money to buy a diploma? I think you should pay more attention on your education.» (No)
- *Programmet har inte varit tillräckligt utvceklande för mig som person och jag känner att jag inte fått ut så mycket av det som jag hoppats på. *Jag har inte fått den hjälp man behövt - svårt att få tag på lärare. Bara att dörrarna är låsta in till korridoren gör att man inte känner sig välkommen med frågor. Så känner man inte när jag läst kurser på andra institutioner. *Har inte blivit vänligt bemött av ledningen från programmet, har känt mig kränkt och ovälkommen. » (No)
- Too much frustration with bad administration. Misguided curriculum. Some very bad teachers.» (No)
- Most of the courses have not been good. I would have chosen for example csall and selected the few good courses from this program» (No)
- Because I thought this program will help me in biomedical analysis and also in technical analysis, but it doesn"t. » (No)
- I would not choose it because I think it is really bad. There is not enough courses to choose from and the courses that exist is not very good. » (No)
- Too immature and the quality of the courses is too low. Interesting subjects but bad courses.» (No)
- Because it could not satisfied me.I prefer to learn something more useful for my job» (No)
- It have not been that good as I expected. The courses have been a bit to much repetition. Also some courses havn"t felt carefully prepared.» (No)
- It was a major disappointment. Not at all as good as everyone had told during the bachelor studies.» (No)
- för att det inte är fördjupande nog, det är för mycket vattentrams, (som är svårt att välja bort eftersom kursutbudet som eebjuds är obefintligt)» (No)
- The goal is not clear and too broad, I don"t know what should I gain from this program.» (No)
- Not with this empty content, I am sad, and I feel ashamed of Sweden, we are not as good as many think» (No)
- It"s not worth the money I spent for the education. » (No)
- Its useless.» (No)
- very poor organization and guidance» (No)
- I like natural sciences and don"t want to work with social sciences which it mainly is at that programme.» (No)
- Too much Technical mandatory courses, and it does not focus much on Sustainability and innovation as The titel hints. It is still The "process" track.» (No)
- because now I am not became expert in any spacial field. this program was like bachelor program in civil engineering. it does not focus on any specific field. » (No)
- Det känns lite snävt nu i efterhand, just fordonsindustrin är inte jättestor i Sverige. » (Probably not)
- Professors are not pedagogical and don"t have good communication skills, especially when it comes to commnuication in english.» (Probably not)
- Because the programme at Gothenburg university offers a better chance of getting a PhD position.» (Probably not)
- I would choose Structural engineering and add the Geotechnics course. » (Probably not)
- I"d probably go for languages and algorithms.» (Probably not)
- There are to few compulsory courses to chose from!» (Probably not)
- I noticed during my studies that Theoretical Physics appeals to me more, therefore today I wolud have chosen Physics and Astronomy.» (Probably not)
- It looks better on paper than in reality. The courses from Physical resource theory was most of the time great, but the courses from ESA was most of the time quite bad (no reality check, disorginized, not very pedagogical, tested lots on details and glossary ie light knowledge and were not focusing on the deeper understanding...» (Probably not)
- Jag tycker inte att åsikter kring programändringar och kurstillägg tas på allvar. Jag tycker att utbildningen är för slapp och för spridd. Mastern borde vara 2 olika. 1 geo och en vatten. Eller åtminståne så att man kan välja fler kurser så att det är möjligt att rikta in sig mot ett av hållen. Kurserna borde gå djupare då det hittills (1 år in i utbildningen) har kännts som repetition fast på engelska. Kurser som modelling borde ses över då den är väldigt spretig och ger för lite.» (Probably not)
- There are lot of repetitive subjects. I was looking for a more higher level programme with more of project oriented coaching.» (Probably not)
- I really do not like the quarters format. I do not think we learn. I want to do R&D and many of the courses are not focused on that field.» (Probably not)
- Only option if you are interested in the subjects, but heavily influenced by water courses that very few are interested in. » (Probably not)
- I wanted a bit more design in the program. more architecture in another sense.» (Probably not)
- Many reasons: Health issues with anxiety and my own limitations. Too much group work and the content I wished to dig deeper in to (Multidsciplinary water & urban courses and hydraulics) was heavily underrepresented in the courses. » (Probably not)
- I"ve heard good things about the algorithms masters. The distributed systems was such a dissappointment. So much cool stuff today is made with distributed systems and significant intresting challanges is in there! The courses seemd old an does not reflect the new ways and problems of the subject. I"m working with it now, but I"m dissapointed with the courses, which was why I choose the program.» (Probably not)
- It is too easy! Most of what i have learned is the same things i learned in the bachealor. If i could choose again i would have chosen the structural program and added some geotechnics courses.» (Probably not)
- I think I could have learned more in these two years than I have.» (Probably not)
- Was not expecting such a large focus on exclusively business development during the second year, had hoped for a larger degree of technical development.» (Probably not)
- To pragmatic and dogmatic.The "trow in the pool and watch them try" mentality is nothing but depressing. There is no communication, like this evaluation. It feels strange, a quantifiable replacement of my five years of being there to give feedback IRL.But a total of 5 minutes face time with the pedagogical courseleaders has granted a non dynamic situation. » (Probably not)
- I had very little knowledge about the master when i started and i wouldnt say that the program is bad, I just don"t see myself working in with this subjects when i graduate.» (Probably not)
- I think MPDSD has to many porject based courses that are mandatory. I chose to design "my own" course list where many courses are from outside MPDSD.» (Probably not)
- The programme shares the mentality of the Physics Department - students should work hard with difficult courses. This mindset is utterly wrong - easy is the way to go. A basic course should not be an advanced course. A master programme is NOT a PhD!» (Probably not)
- I still belive in the programme, it is what I want to study and it is an important subject which will lead to a good jobb. But as the programme is now I wouldnt recommend it to a fellow student because of the inmaturity of the programme and the total lack of competence about how to run a course at chalmers.» (Probably not)
- Difficult to see the applications in industry or academia for some of the courses (and the program as a whole). The Engineering mathematics or Computer science MPs may have been more useful, and also have more well known brands - I feel like I would have to explain what a CAS student would be good for if I applied for a job in industry.» (Probably not)
- I liked the subect/courses alot » (Probably not)
- Other M.P more interesting» (Probably not)
- It is neither technical or chalangeing enough.» (Probably not)
- MEI feels more interesting» (Probably not)
- Inget att välja på, vill ha mer trafik!» (Probably not)
- Both yes and no. I think we learn to little in so much time. The pace is too slow within the courses. I would definitely look for other masterprograms in other cities if I would do this choice again. » (Probably not)
- Not because of the program but it was a little bit wrong choice for my future goals.» (Probably not)
- There are insufficient opportunities for learning and feedback during the courses.» (Probably not)
- Dont like the double semesters here (in Sweden) longer semersters suit me better» (Probably not)
- Too little traffic engineering (and just one teacher that does all the courses)» (Probably not)
- haven"t felt that it deepen my knowledge or been a challenge, more of a obstacle before getting a diploma and be able to apply for a good job» (Probably not)
- because, the course defined in PM adn the actual class is different. there is no real challenge faced» (Probably not)
- I would only probably take the courses in space engineering or choose another program correlated to space engineering.» (Probably not)
- I was hoping for more serious commitment to the big issues of sustainability. Some things felt a bit disengenuous, not rigorous, not serious enough and not enough focus on outcomes. Also, too much emphasis placed on the social aspect and not enough technology.» (Probably not)
- The studios of this program was not what I expected.» (Probably not)
- As mentioned above some such as EAS, VTS and RVAD I haven"t learnt much and these are 3 courses and I am paying 17500 KR for each of these subjects and I feel I haven"t got what I have paid for. And once again the the teacher for the Basic Vehicle Dynamics course didn"t teach properly.» (Probably not)
- Kände inte att jag fick lära mig speciellt mycket relevant alls. Mycket av utbildningen är på lägre nivå än kandidaten och resten är nästan bara sunt förnufft. » (Probably not)
- I"m not as passionate about networks nor it-security anymore. Don"t know what I should have chosen.» (Probably not)
- The curriculum is a joke, the Formula Student team is worth volumes, however. If it wasn"t for FS, it would be a definite NO. I"m taking courses from applied mechanics next year to see if I can get something for my money (I"m a fee paying student.)» (Probably not)
- Then i should have chosen another school instead.» (Probably not)
- There are better programs in other countries in Europe. KU Leuven in Belgium, in my opinion, has the best masers in Biomedical Engineering program in the EU and EEA» (Probably not)
- I might consider a "harder" programme, e.g. Applied Mechanics. » (I would consider it)
- Not very interested in materials but I like the courses connected to the MP that are not semicompulsory» (I would consider it)
- I would like to combine with other programming courses as I feel that I am at a disadvantage now that I am applying for jobs.» (I would consider it)
- doesn"t quite seem immediately useful in industry, rather a few years ahead.» (I would consider it)
- Administration is weak, not enough core courses and not enough good/caring teachers.» (I would consider it)
- It needs to get more practical» (I would consider it)
- because the relationsship with companies are not really developed and today they want people with more understanding of construction/mechanical engineering skills. i.e. road vehicle aerodynamics course was almost just about powerpoint slides of cars etc. the same for many of the lectures held by guest teacher. so please remove as much as possible of the guest teachers, except for powertrain mechanics course.» (I would consider it)
- I am disappointed but I don"t know what programme I would choose if I didn"t choose this one » (I would consider it)
- The level of compulsory courses are a bit higher than that of the applied physics program, and I would have been able to attend the same courses I was interested in from that program without taking some of the courses I now had to take but did not really find interesting or of sufficient quality. On the other hand some of the more chemically inclined courses have been a really good exposure to a cool subject.» (I would consider it)
- I feel like the problem is rather the uncertainty of what to do afterwards more than the programme content itself. I found some courses fun and rewarding and some less so. Since we have 6 obligatory courses during the first year, the class becomes pretty close, which is a thing. On the other hand, more courses to select individually in the spring would be great.» (I would consider it)
- I might have chosen the CSALL master programme instead.» (I would consider it)
- For me, exchange studies is of great importance. And CAS offers a very limited range of relevant exchange options. It is also difficult to go for a 1 year exchange.» (I would consider it)
- Too much physic / biology stuff for me» (I would consider it)
- Since I now know that I would go more into software development combined with mathematics I would considering computer science before engineering mathematics.» (I would consider it)
- I still find the program useful and relevant as a continuation of my studies and interests. However, I underestimated how different it would be and how difficult it would be for somebody with my academic background to keep up. I think, if I could go back in time with this knowledge, I would have to seriously think about if I wanted this or not.» (I would consider it)
- No jobs, just research» (I would consider it)
- I´,m interested in traffic planning and traffic analyzes. If I would know that the poor supply of these types of courses at this programme, I might have chosen a MP at another university.» (I would consider it)
- The courses are too poorly connected and vary too much in level.» (I would consider it)
- I am perhaps more applied, and the courses from, for example, engineering mathematics seems to me to be easier to motivate by a future employer. But I would definitely choose many choosable courses from within the CAS programme. » (I would consider it)
- A totally different way to study and I have realised i want to work with software development.» (I would consider it)
- I would choose the energy master, that seems to give more future labour opportunities.» (I would consider it)
- The compulsory courses have not lived up to my expectations but the semicompulsory courses have been very good. If I could choose a master programme again I would probably see if I could study the courses in the biomaterials/tissue engineering track in some other programme and if so choose that master.» (I would consider it)
- My interest may have changed a little bit but I am not sure. Still not finished with the MSC» (I would consider it)
- Personal choice, not due to lack of competency of the teachers or poor course material.» (I would consider it)
- But I would skip the mandatory courses and gone my own way through the MSc-program and studied for my interest relevant courses sufficient to be able to get a degree as civ.ing., i.e. skipped the M.Sc. degree. Why should I study really bad courses not within my field of interest when I could have gained valuable experience from other courses? I would have loved following courses like "Building Detail" or taken a course in conceptual computational 3D-modelling.» (I would consider it)
- Think the School of Entrepreneurship is more of my thing.» (I would consider it)
- I thought i would be more difficult. » (I would consider it)
- If the sircumstances were better ERASMUS exchange would have been more giving.» (I would consider it)
- Because of all the times there has been big frustration and disappointment in some courses. You go in there with the idea of that this is really interesting subject and the way the course is done in terms of pedagogy/load(highly fluctuating)» (I would consider it)
- I probably would choose Marinetime Management but it didn"t open last year.» (I would consider it)
- You learn to little during the same amount of time as your old classmates that chose something else have learnt a lot more.» (I would consider it)
- Some courses in the program are not that useful when you start working.» (I would consider it)
- To little projects. No presentations. Only the ordinary 8 weeks and then exam courses. » (I would consider it)
- If not, because of the workload.» (I would consider it)
- Since I to some extent feel that I have not learned enough new, that I could have studied something else. Though, of course there are courses that I have enjoyed during the masters but some really made me disappointed during the fist masters year.» (I would consider it)
- Pure interest» (I would consider it)
- I would consider Building technology instead, and in that case, would have added the geotechnics courses from MPIEE.» (I would consider it)
- work opportunities are quite low» (I would consider it)
- Labor market does not look good with this kind of education right now. » (I would consider it)
- The solar decathlon China has been the hardest thing Ive done in school. Physiological strenuous and time-consuming (15 p for more than 130% studies) » (I would consider it)
- Might have picked entrepreneurial focus instead» (I would consider it)
- Maybe continue and go for a master in mechanical engineering» (I would consider it)
- maybe I would have chosen MPDSD instead of MPARC» (I would consider it)
- I think it is to much focus on water as infrastucture» (I would consider it)
- I would consider it as the student teacher environment makes me to learn better than my bachelors. But it would have been better if the courses are more specialized» (I would consider it)
- too many courses that did not interest me» (I would consider it)
- It"s too easy, I"m not sure if I am competitive enough on the market after completing it.» (I would consider it)
- But choose other courses where I had the posibility.» (I would consider it)
- I feel that I dont learn so much, the courses have a large overlap and are very thin.» (I would consider it)
- hope to learn project management» (I would consider it)
- Might chose same programme in different school.» (I would consider it)
- Probably my own fault but I feel I got a broad education but lacking somewhat in depth (which I should have gotten by smart choice of elective courses perhaps)» (I would consider it)
- I just wish we were taught what the syllabus said we would be taught! I definitely learned something, but I thought I would learn so much more (and it"s such a let down, I feel as if I just wasted my time).» (I would consider it)
- The lack of interest by some of the responsible teachers must be improved. » (I would consider it)
- I was expecting more focus on how to develop interfaces (GUIs), more conceptual work from that point of view. How to go through a project from the start to the deliveries. There is a lot of focus on how to get requirements but not in how to transform that data into designs concepts. » (I would consider it)
- I would want something more challenging.» (I would consider it)
- I would take courses from the progranne but within another master. » (I would consider it)
- It interesting for the most parts. However, I would never have chosen Maskinteknik again if I could turn back time.» (Yes - probably)
- I would take it again if I knew there was the solar decathlon course.» (Yes - probably)
- If I can make the choice again, probably I would choose Aalto University, since I love the program and the curricular better.(radio science and engineering) Additionally, it"s free. But anyway, Chalmers is good.» (Yes - probably)
- Lack of connection to work opportunities, unless you want to be a consultant. Otherwise, I feel that QOM and SCM is more in line of what companies want from a junior hire.» (Yes - probably)
- The study itself is quite interesting but the problem is no one understand what I am doing when I am looking for a job. Industrial Ecology seems vague to most of the people.» (Yes - probably)
- I like the program very much, but unfortunately the opportunities to get a job within the field afterwards seems very limited. » (Yes - probably)
- The courses in Stochastic optimization, Neural networks, Autonomous agents and Humanoid robotics I wouldn"t have liked to be without, but perhaps one could have taken them from a computer science programme too. » (Yes - probably)
- it contains most courses that i find interesting» (Yes - probably)
- If this survey had been done in November I would have said No, but it"s always easier when you"re on the other side of the courses. On the other hand I could not tell which program I would have taken otherwise. » (Yes - probably)
- It is time consuming. If you really want to understand and perform good, you need to invest your full time in studies. No time for others things and this is the discouraging part.» (Yes - probably)
- Lack of better alternatives » (Yes - probably)
- this programme is tailored for my bachelor. swithing programmes and going on a one year exchange would have been to complicated.» (Yes - probably)
- I think I am working with important matters.» (Yes - probably)
- It is an unique program with strength from Chalmers research.» (Yes - probably)
- Because I am interested in the subject, and the program has given me a lot of inspiration, even if it might not deepen my knowledge so much.» (Yes - probably)
- I regard it as the most interesting programme in my field.» (Yes - probably)
- supply chain & Qom seem to be more applicable to many jobs, so easier to get employed» (Yes - probably)
- The programme was much easier than expected, but the upside is that this enables me to do a PhD, because I actually have the grades for it. And the actual study subject was exactly what I wanted to do, so no complaints there.» (Yes - probably)
- I"m considering if the related Product Development might have been more to my liking» (Yes - probably)
- I´,m more interested in traffic and urban design. Not so interested in water and geo engineering.» (Yes - probably)
- No other program interested me» (Yes - probably)
- Too many mandatory courses.» (Yes - probably)
- A mix of things I"m interesting in.» (Yes - probably)
- I"d choose the program again, but I"d gladly have some courses revised» (Yes - probably)
- I might have gone for MPCAS instead. » (Yes - probably)
- I like networking of machines and distributed and real time systems in industries» (Yes - probably)
- My programe do not exist anymore, but I would instead have choosen, Industrial Ecology» (Yes - probably)
- If I had taken FEM during my bachelor"s degree, I would probably have chosen Applied Mechanics instead, but that is not the same as me saying I regret studying Product Dev.» (Yes - probably)
- It"s a good program allright, but I also need to find either a PhD position or a job. To find a job, I need the program to look attractive to employers. Does anyone really think that a program with the word "astronomy" in the program name looks attractive to a typical non-university future employer? Of course not. So even though you teach great thinking abilities, the marketing side needs to get a bit better, starting with changing the name. "Fundamental Physics" was good in Sweden (although maybe not internationally), but seriously, "Physics and Astronomy" is not better, it is worse. Let me give you a couple of suggestions that sounds better: "Physics", "Theoretical and Experimental Physics", "Research Physics".» (Yes - probably)
- Overall it"s a good programme. It provides everything for international students as it is a relatively small group that stays in the same rooms and therefore can work closely together. Communication with swedish and international co-students works good and there are some really good teachers.» (Yes - probably)
- Svårt att hitta jobba specifika för produktutvecklare.» (Yes - probably)
- Hard to pass exams although I have passed most courses.» (Yes - probably)
- It has provided me with a range of different methods and knowledge, suitable for working towards sustainable development. But I am still not certain about my ability to work as an architect, I doubt myself especially when it comes to designing buildings.» (Yes - probably)
- There is no other program of its kind to choose - at least not in Gothenburg.» (Yes - probably)
- Because of the Six sigma black belt» (Yes - probably)
- I miss calculations etc, but it"s a personal problem, not problem with the master.» (Yes - probably)
- Don"t have so much other programme to choose between..,» (Yes - probably)
- It"s a very broad masters programme which is both good and bad. » (Yes - probably)
- There is no other programme that are intressting me. So I would choose the same programme due to that. » (Yes - probably)
- The core courses ( concrete, timber, steel ) were good, the teachers are ok and the courses have a good structure! However, some other courses were terrible, and I would have a hard time to convince myself that it is worth the effort to finish the first semester with the terrible courses Heat and moisture and Materials performance, but after this semester it turned out better!» (Yes - probably)
- I still think it fits me the best, but if the IT master programs had a better rumour maybe I would have gone to one of them instead.» (Yes - probably)
- The Program Yes ... the place to live NO» (Yes - probably)
- This is the track that got me inspired in the first place. My overall experience is a good one except some minor complaints. » (Yes - probably)
- However I would never ever choose Teknisk Fysik again, worst decision of my life.» (Yes - probably)
- Q33. The programme coordinator should be replaced by Chalmers since the programme coordinator can"t decide alone (as far as I know). » (Yes - probably)
- Despite some bad teachers and courses and the high work load, the subjects of the MP are very interesting.» (Yes - probably)
- Interested in the field» (Yes - probably)
- Whether or not this was a good idea will depend on my employment upon graduation.» (Yes - probably)
- I would consider International Project Management more now that I know more about it but I would probably choose DCPM anyway.» (Yes - probably)
- Overall I am satisfied and more or less got what I came for.» (Yes - probably)
- I feel it is the right choice for me, It has interested me since I first started Chalmers, I like the subject (electrical Engineering / Medicine)» (Yes - probably)
- Yes because it"s the best program for me at chalmers. But I might have investigated the possibility to transfer to another school if I were to do it again. » (Yes - probably)
- a bit too abstract, not very many practical courses» (Yes - probably)
- might have looked into other schools, and some other courses as well» (Yes - probably)
- There"s really no other master program I "could" choose. The only alternative for me would be software engineering, and from what I"ve heard it"s far too soft / low quality courses.» (Yes - probably)
- It was tough finding the skills among the other students which I had hoped to find for the kind of collaborative projects I wished to do during and after my time in the program such as concept art, 3D modelling, and maybe even character design. A program or school directed more towards the field I wish to work in, games, would probably have been a better choice in that regard. However I do not regret picking up the design skills I probably would not have gotten elsewhere.» (Yes - probably)
- It"s a very good master programme and I"m (obviously) very interested in the subject. In retrospect it was a very given choice» (Yes)
- The perfect continuation from Eng.Physics. Could not be more satisfied.» (Yes)
- It is developing me in so many ways that my bachelors programme did not. I"m stimulated and encouraged to think outside the box and find new ways of working and thinking.» (Yes)
- I really enjoy working with algorithms and I appreciate the possibility to choose most courses on my own.» (Yes)
- It gave me a solid ground for the type of work I"m interested in. » (Yes)
- It is an excellent program. The methods are good - often very high level abstraction on theory level, but great opportunities for practical implementation from projects.» (Yes)
- Intresting subjects, good teachers, Ritsalen, had 3 job offers before I started my thesis.» (Yes)
- Very interesting subject, most teachers are highly motivated and competent, great study climate.» (Yes)
- The subjects interests me. It is good to have a broad view, but you should also be able to specialize if you know what subject you are the most interested in.» (Yes)
- Because it"s the closest program to reality, the only real option for me. The reason is question 42. in this survey, the alternative "already working as entrepreneur" is not in the option here. Either you have a job somewhere, or you don"t know. Please rethink question 42 of this survey.» (Yes)
- Gives a very good preparation for what I want to work with. Interesting, challenging courses.» (Yes)
- This was a way for me to be myself at Chalmers! The topics interests me a lot and I really see a career within industrial/organisational learning» (Yes)
- Much freedom to choose one"s courses and good connections to current research.» (Yes)

- It was almost exactly what I expected it to be. Maybe even a bit more :)» (Yes)
- The Urban studio (UADL) is the first studio were students have more freedom and can explore new topics and methods of working comparing to the bachlor program and other studios. » (Yes)
- Very interesting subjects.» (Yes)
- Good program, but i would have chosen another line. » (Yes)
- I might have chosen to take on a full technical program such as Biomaterials in order to pursue a career as an expert. But I am very happy with the choice I made as of now.» (Yes)
- Overall it"s a very good programme. » (Yes)
- developed me professionally and academically, gave me lots of challanges and fun» (Yes)
- Because I like the variety of courses that one can choose from» (Yes)
- Good teaching, interesting courses, good connections with industry» (Yes)
- Because I know now that I can be a good engineer, before the programme I had doubts. The staff is highly motivating and helps at any time.» (Yes)
- Givet att jag redan läst kandidat i Kemiteknik så skulle jag valt samma master. Däremot är det osäkert om jag hade valt att studera Kemiteknik om jag fått välja igen.» (Yes)
- It"s a great programme! I have changed programme two times (from ID and SET). Those programmes both lacked in administration, english and pedagogical competence in teachers and course planning. However CSALL is really good in comparison, I would really recommend this programme to new master students.» (Yes)
- Good relevant courses.» (Yes)
- It doesn"t look perfect today, but it was my best decision with my knowledge of that certain time.» (Yes)
- Good courses that match my interests in a good way. I would definitely choose the same programme again.» (Yes)

- Despite not being properly prepared I enjoyed my time during the masters program and I really like the subject.» (Yes)
- It was a great Master"s program. It helped me improve and take it a step further on my academic career.» (Yes)
- The program is focused on an extremely interesting topic and has really good teachers! The students taking the program are highly motivated and you can a really good contact with each other!» (Yes)
- Absolutely!» (Yes)
- Due to the opportunity to chose most of your own courses. That has given me inspiration and I am satisfied with 95 percent of my choices.» (Yes)
- But would probably choose different courses than I did.» (Yes)
- it"s great fun and really fits me» (Yes)
- It has been fun!» (Yes)
- It combines the subjects in science that I find especially interesting!» (Yes)
- I learned a lot from the program. It"s def beneficial but the study climate sometimes is a bit unwelcoming for foreign students» (Yes)

- For me there were, and still are no other choice in what i want to do.» (Yes)
- It fulfills the criteria I hoped for.» (Yes)
- It is a very good program, and David Pallerés earn a lot of creddability to make the best of the program. » (Yes)
- Even though I had a hard time in the beginning of the programme due to lack of skills in design and such, I have learnt a lot and had great fun doing so!» (Yes)
- The courses made me think in a bit different way (the study methods are different from my home uni) A lot of interesting and useful information within courses» (Yes)
- Have had a wonderful time!!» (Yes)

- Flexibility. Choices within CS.»
- The course Sustainability and the design professions had guest speakers that had much to say about how I have narrowed my focus now. The local context course had a very good culture of it"s own. It makes you get to know people personally as well as in relation to work. These relations have become important in my masters thesis work.»
- Superconductivity course, the small amount of students getting very close together as a group»
- Mandatory courses are good.»

- Timber course and advanced building physics are very good courses.»
- the possibility to choose 3 different paths (wireless, photonics and space sciences), and to choose courses from theses 3 domains.»
- Teachers like Richard Torkar, Jan Wickenberg and Robert Feldt. They are great pedagogues who have the ability to awaken one"s interest for sometimes difficult and tedious subjects. I believe that their respective courses (Empirical SE, Project management and Requirements engineering) have given me a lot, in spite of difficulties. You should let them be and you shouldn"t pressure them to change their ways, even if some of them might seem unconventional.»
- The project year!»
- Courses Structrual systems and structural design gives a very good overview of what weve learn and how to apply our knowledge, they also develop considering structures as systems not individual parts.

- All non-model based courses»
- The overall structure with the courses should definitely be preserved! Also the fact that in my part of the Masters programme we study together with students that have previously studied law or economics, which is an extremely valuable experience that is crucial to have for the topics studied at this program. As I said before, 15hp of elective courses are also really good and I think that it is the perfect amount, it should not be more and not less.»

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

- Would definitely add more courses in commercial softwares used for design, CFD/FEM simulations. The advanced ICE course was great, letting students work with GT Power that is widely used in the industry. »
- A few courses need a major redesign. Image Analysis,for example is horrendously taught with two professors who bring vastly different ideas of the course. Moreover, the evaluation methods they use do not fit the course at all.»
- I would be interested to have Entrepreneurship courses also»
- The second semester. »
- A continual evaluation and tweaking of the final year - which is already ongoing :)»
- The introduction course is way to general. I"ve taken a master programme in automotive engineering and I don"t know how a gearbox works. You should get a general, working knowledge about all the major systems of a vehicle without taking specific courses in e.g. Powertrain Mechanics. Knowing that a gearbox is "a black box between the engine and the wheels" is not enough! »
- Less mandatory courses»
- teachers too nice, architecture master thesis should be in english and most of the people write and present it in swedish which is more easy for them and not fair to the other international student that cannot write in there native language.»
- Teach the professors how to speak clear english. Then teach them better ways of teaching.»
- Sustainable building should be more about how to build sustainable and less about learning by doing (googleling). Better organization within the courses (the overall organization is good), with schedule in time, clear information etc.)»
- More project management is needed, more courses that are dealing with real life problems, help companies and such.»
- The number of compulsory courses and we should be informed that starting the thesis in the beginning of the second year is almost necessary to get a PhD position.»
- The project course»
- People come out from the degree without a good portfolio, which is essential to get a design job (no compromise for development), and mostly for international students, who not necessarily wish to stay in Gothenburg.»
- I personally consider quite unfair to allow swedish speaking students to deliver and present their thesis in their own language. It is a full Master Programme totally in english and this limits the access of non-swedish speaking students to several information from previous years. Additionally, it can not be an equal evaluation when someone writes on his own language and some not. I also heard that in other Master Programmes swedish-speaking students are not allowed to present/deliver in swedish for the above obvious reasons.»
- More quality in the elective courses»
- Some of the mandatory courses seem to have a lower standard. The problem for me as a returning exchange student was that I did not really feel that they were relevant for me.»
- The Erasmus Mundus programme of Industrial Ecology has some problem with the mobility scheme and students know less about courses before coming to Chalmers. »
- The choice of mandatory courses. Maybe more contact with alumnis to know which courses they have felt helped them after graduation.»
- There is possible to increase the pedagogical level.»
- Nothing»
- the advanced topics course is incoherent, could use more elective courses»
- Some elements that force students to compete with each other too much, e.g. assigning fictive money to individual performances. Some elements of group work such as supervisors explicitly stating that there is not time to supervise. Course evaluations should definitely be takes more seriously as there are 1-2 courses that continuously get the same complaints from the majority of students (in my experience).»
- No major changes.»
- Some core courses need to be improved, especially the practical ones involving hardware. »
- Maybe some more course of geotechnics »
- Better options to choose courses we want to take. I don"t want to be forced to choose courses I am not interested in only because there are no other options. The first semester should not be compulsory. »
- Urban metabolism and drinking water engineering»
- Mandatory courses in both fluid and solid mechanics are not necessary, they are two very different areas and I don"t even really think they should be in the same masters programme. Most people who choose Applied Mechanics know which one they are interested in and to force the both halves together just seems unnecessary (and very stressful). »
-
- That there is only 4 compulsory elective courses during the spring semester.»
- Coordination between different courses so that all professors are aware of the content in the programme.»
- Addition of more challenging courses»
- The dynamical systems could be a bit tougher. And it was hard to find any interesting courses within robotics/image analysis study period 2 year 2.»
- There are to few compulsory courses to chose from!»
- revise the mandatory courses, make more courses electable»
- All tutors who have low capability or who are lazy to prepare before their sessions should definetely be changed»
- Coordinator and Dominance of Bernhard Mehling - Program structure , everything should be redesigned , there are good example which you can find at EPFL university, Switzerland : http://master.epfl.ch/cse and in Italy ,Istituto Universitario di Studi Superiori Pavia.»
- impact biomechanics.»
- The "semi-mandatory" courses. You should not be punished for studying abroad. Especially not if it is part of the world-wide exchange. If you go to a world-wide exchange, you should be able to get credits for all courses, not just half of them. Going on an exchange complicates your schedule a lot and postpones your graduation. This is a big problem. »
- nanoscience course»
- Boo Edgar. He is only destructive.»
- Currently all the courses are from Applied Mechanics courses. We would like to see more courses within Automotive engineering to be offered in the second year such as Advanced Aerodynamics, Chassis Design, Passive Safety »
- The options given for elective courses»
- If a course i mandatory it must have a useful content and actully be better than elective courses in order for the students to be motivated.»
- The mandatory MTS-course. Any MTS course simply doesn"t live up to the standard or relevance of a standard course, in effect the MTS-course constitutes 7.5 points that have to be "wasted" on something that is not so much of interest or relevance. I don"t believe that having taken an MTS-course makes much of a difference later in life. The teacher in Solid State Physics (Leonid) was horrible.»
- The courses in Advanced Form. »
- Involve more economy aspects! This is something I think I"m lacking when I"m now soon finished!»
- Search for a new partner university in the IPM programme - the quality of the education in Northumbria is poor compared to the one in Chalmers»
- The course professors and the supervisors in courses grade and supervise differently and do not talk to each other. It negatively affects the grades for no real reason.»
- The name: I think that there really is just one "track" in this program and that is the "process/design" track. I don"t know anyone choosing this program for the environmental courses and the "wood" track is just process with 3 courses specialized in wood knowledge. Innovative is just purely misleading as there is nothing "innovative" in the courses. We learn tried and tested engineering knowledge that is used in the industry, it"s not very innovative (why should it?). Rename it to Chemical process engineering, it sounds better and is more accurate.»
- Göran Lindahls courses.»
- It would be great to implement more reflective practices for learning from group projects. »
- More variations in the subjects, less overlap. I do not like to hear the same thing twice, the challenges could be greater.»
- increase the depth of each course. Presently given courses are rather broad, but nothing is covered in-depth »
- An additional hardware design course would be good to have. The suggested tracks in the program are not that well thought through, as you cannot fullfil all the compulsory electives by following one track.»
- Första halvåret borde ses över. 3 av 4 kurser kändes inte vettiga att ha som obligatoriska kurser. Detta håller antagligen 20 personer till med mig om i klassen.»
-
- Britt-Marie Wilén, programme director, and the influence of the WET-institution.»
- The semi-compulsory course in Nanoscience could be given as a seminar series for the students, or as a part of other nanoscience courses. The spot in the curriculum it occupies is not proportional to its benefits. »
- more courses to chose from, better information about them.»
- The Systems biology course. It didn"t feel like I learned anything useful there, and yet I could tell that it"s a very important area, so it"s a pity that the course itself is so fuzzy.»
- see answer 26 & 27»
- Better course material would greatly benefit some courses, such as: Simulations of complex systems, Comp. Bio. 1, »
- The courses in distributed systems need to be revised.»
- More links with the professional role of a CAS-engingeer, contact with industry and so on. In my opinion, MP:s are where you develop your professional skills and CAS doesn"t really prepare you for a engineering job.»
- Possibilty to get specialized in one field. Even if the courses are not available at the program maybe suggestions on suitable courses could be given. »
- the Computer Security course»
- More pedagocial teachers that want to teach.»
- The courses Computer Networks, Computer Security and Network Security are too similar.»
- The number of electives in the master programme is very limited. The second year should focus on subjects to specialize in any particular field related to the "Computer Systems and Networks" programme.»
- very expensive course literature, not possible to buy every book and often in the end it wasnt that beneficial to purchase»
- Image analysis course is pretty bad. The exam fealt like an collage of questions that noone actually went through to calculate the time needed. I know that the course received pretty bad reviews in the course evaluation from the majority of the students.»
-
- Make geo and water two separate branches and expand the traffic department. »
- Course logic, reports, home exams and thesis need better and thorough feedback, grades should be reasonably awarded, transparency in grading is generally lacking.»
- don´,t know»
- More guidance, like this is what I want to do, which courses should I take, and a clear goal.»
- Improved sofware programs. More eligible courses, less focus on chemistry »
- 1- Teachers like Mr. Bernhard Mehlig, Stellan Ostlund, ... 2- Program Coordinator, Mats Granath and his/her responsibilities and authorities »
- Deeper connections with the business world, more crossdisciplinary projects and some more individual assignments.»
- Split it up into several. A comment from a teacher when we discussed this was "When this became a master program we added a semester but there is much less depth".»
- Better administration»
- More application of theoretical knowledge in practical situations.»
- Maybe the methods course should be given earlier.»
- Some of the courses are useless and some too easy»
- remove tek190. Also, throughout the whole programme group work have had a LARGE impact on the grade. I think this should change due to my belief that we should achieve individual grades.»
- Too many semi-mandatory courses. I prefer to have more flexibility when selecting courses out of mandatory courses.»
- no idea»
- Less focus on academia and more on what may actually help the students in their professional life.»
- Everything from the opening hours in the workshop til the whole idea behind why the school offers studies in architecture (or as they claim - "vi utbildar folk till arkitekter här - vi utbildare er inte inom arkitektur". Det säger väl allt.»
- Not so many water courses or at least the ability to chose something else. Unfortenatuly is the traffick courses a mess too and just a repetition of the courses from the bachelor. Im ashamed of my master programme!»
- the strategy something something course in lp3 add more statistics, interpreting data, finding proxies to do market estimatation etc, the program is not quantitative enough»
- The large percentage of water related courses among those that are compulsory. »
- Pretty much everything is good, except the Marine Transport Systems lecturer, Anna.»
- More group (>2 people) and project work would be nice, especially in the beginning to get to know the other students. As mentioned before, the content of Operating Systems should be updated.»
- Look over the content of each course and try to reduce the heavy overlap.»
- Switch order of the courses "Modeling and simulation" and "Applied signal processing". The latter one should be covered first, mainly due to that the lecturer in the ASP-course is one of the best I"ve seen at Chalmers.»
- A bigger sense of responsibility of the social climate during the intro-trips. Going somewhere and making academic related activities is a great initiative but the social relations and group dynamics is completely left out. Even a simple introduction round ("Hi my name is, and I"m from ...) would be a concrete improvement.»
- More practical work, e.g. laboratory work, etc.»
- Change the Computer Networks course in some way.»
- no need»
- Some proper grading criteria and transparency in exactly HOW things are graded would be great to have. Also there seems to be certain members of staff who have done the same thing over and over again and who do not make useful nor inspiring academic contributions.»
- The course complex systems seminar could be improved. The requirements from the presentations should be increased.»
- More information regarding courses should be sent out in advance so that it"s possible as a student to start read (and plan) before the period starts (this is not a major major thing though). More emphasis on how to study effectively, group studying/making article summaries/group discussions, a collaborative dropbox with old exams and similar, in the beginning.»
- would be nice to be able to have more courses for implementing concepts»
- Elective courses more connected to the overall theme, no strucutre in elective courses»
- Take away Urban Metabolism. How can you introduce a totally new subject our last semester before our master"s thesis? It is almost provoking. »
- Cellulose Technology, Paper Technology, Biorefinery, Risk Management, Formulations for Drug Delivery.»
- Administration, depth in courses, should be MORE development (it is an IT-master but is referred to as a "design education" by the teachers)»
- Make sure the prerequisite courses for all elective courses are spelled out adequately. Models of Computation, for instance, is extremely hard unless you have first taken Programming Language Technology or equivalent.»
- How it handles students doing exchange studies.»
- Fee Structure»
- Nordic architecture course doesn"t seem so relevant today.»
- The compulsory courses. Only the Advanced chemistry course have felt worthwhile to study»
- nothing specific»
- Hard to tell.»
- more courses to choose from when choosing elective courses»
- Aesthetics of Interaction Design needs to have a more "grounded" approach, and it needs to let students actually create things not imagine them and talk about them theoretically.»
- The programme should be more difficult. »
- Add more design courses »
- Decrease the number of mandatory courses, better feedback on written reports.»
- Theoretical courses could be improved.»
- Some of the 1st semester courses should be electives with alternatives available. Some of the 2nd year courses that do not necessarily require a background course should be available for selection at this stage i.e Powertrain mechanics »
- More structure is needed»
- more courses to choose between, only one period where you have three courses is to little. And make the level more advance, many courses doesn"t feel advance at all.»
- No opinion»
- More lectures»
- Sometimes, it feels like there is not enough choice of courses, for example, in study period 2 or 1.»
- Computer Networks course. Distributed course 1 and 2. They overlap a bit and #2 is badly organized.»
- Strategic Management Knowledge and learning in Projects»
- Students have to get organized and be able to change the education in a more proficient way»
- Since much in the program is build upon group assignments, there might be good to apply workshops in group dynamics »
- More options for the students in the manufacturing track»
- Allow for 1 year exchange studies.»
- The HVAC course feels a bit odd»
- The different teachers need to align assignments and hand-ins. It has not worked at all from my opinion, at least during the spring. The fall was very have but better coordinated between the teachers. Revisit the different courses and syllabuses. Many courses touches very close as for example freight transport and physical distribution , as well as , Production flow and Lean Production. »

- The FEM course is too big! It took about 50 hrs/week so it was difficult to have time left for the course in heat and moisture.»

- Vissa föreläsare behöver ha bättre engelska om programmet ska få bra status bland internationella studenter. Bättre samarbete med studenter.»
- Teachers need to be aware on the different moments and rules about holding a course at Chalmers. The teacher assistants need to KNOW the subject which they are supposed to help out with. The reporting of the results from exams are terrible and always delayed. It is almost inpossible to know how we are graded and the courses are often missing goals and clear statements on the knowledge needed to get a better grade. The feedback on handins are almost non existing and at best you get a very delayed mail that you atleast have passed. Alot of courses have projects parts which are to dependent on single tools and not at all connected to the industry. We are forced to work and put alot of time and effort in producing material which we gain no knowledge from and no feedback on.»
- When i was taking the programme, schedule of some courses conflicted with each other which prevented me from taking both courses at the same time.This can be improved and more flexibility and freedom can be given to the students to take additional courses and courses outside their department if they are interested in it.»
- Make use of our knowledge in math in the applied courses. We know how to solve equations, so do not put effort on finding tricks to get around these. In general structural courses, like FEM and dynamics, they assume we know this and focusses on the core issues of the course curriculum. Add more structural analysis uncoupled from material specific features along with some programming and 3D-modelling. Those who master modeling, analysis and programming will for sure be highly attractive on the market.»
- some courses need better organization and more prepared teachers »
- Nothing»
- Younger teachers with better English skills. Courses that look to modern IT industry instead of crummy old automotives-stuff. Teachers with better pedagogical skills. This is crucial! It should note be enough to have the required academic merits! I"m tired of bad lectures!»
- Human Response to Sound and Vibration. Individual Preparation Course could have a part introducing MATLAB.»
- There is a problem in cooperating with some students. There should be a way to get help with that. Especially som of the foreign (or non-european) students are extremely lazy. Also some other students would learn a lot from getting supervision on how to cooperate.»
- The chemistry courses. Uninspiring labs annd quite boring subject. I liked chemistry before attending those courses.»
- 1.Advanced distributed systems course need to be improved. 2.I think self stabilization topic in Computer networking in the first period of the first year was not clear for me and most of my class mates, I wounder if you can reconsider putting it in distributed systems course. 3. The world "distributed" in the course of paralle and distributed advanced real time systems is not accurate and i think it is better if you remove it. May be if you remove it and see if that improve the number of students intend the course or not.»

- The ? should not make teachers leave Chalmers programe because the teacher have ideas for development and is critical to it"s current state. Also, cut GU out of the programme and courses in general, it"s a chalmers programme and should not be dragged down and adapted for GU-students. i do not need to read duplicated courses just because GU havn"t read those courses (Project management & software project and quality management) The master programme coordinator»

- The building technology courses are to poor»
- In Applied Mechanics, the course structure was changed so that in the fall semester, quarter 1, the choice of courses is quite restricted (only 2 Applied Mechanics courses) and in quarter 2 there are 5 Applied Mechanics available. This way, there are no courses from the "structural" track in the first quarter, but 2 in the second one.»
- The FEM course, all the compulsuary courses the first half year, set more focus.»

-
- I have studied my first year abroad and have thus not attended any lectures at Chalmers within this master program yet. Also the purpose of the master program is to prepare for a work life, which I haven"t tried yet and therefore not know if I have got the right skills.»
- Nothing that I can think of in my programme, but I would have liked it to be easier to read a course in engineering medicine in the normal schedule on Chalmers (not on half pace during a whole term). Also some electable managemant courses (which is not full by students that have them mandatory) would have been great.»
- I would like to see more options to study design instead of more methodology and requirements engineering. This programme is good but if there would be 1-2 more design courses and the teachers would take course administration more seriously and be more organized this programme could be outstanding. There is a lot of wasted potential here. Two course that were exceptionally good in terms of execution were social media and Interaction Design Methodology. Thats 2 out of 8. The others were a mess, more or less.»

- Im actually really disapointed with the knowleadge of many other student coming from both abroad and other schools! Their lack of knowledge on how to write a report and cooperate ina group has been a pain for me the last 2 years, as I often have had to re-written reports,double checking for copied wikipedia material, explaining what an analysis REALLY is etc...just becasue MY grade are connected to their work in a case! Fine if it like that in some courses and some of the students...and I understand that it is a good experience working with people from abroad and all... but seriously, I did not expect to be teaching others on how to write reports for two years! I suggest, be more picky with grades, or that they actually have written a report befor being accepted to the program! »
- The final examination should not be the biggest part in the grading»
- Some teachers need to improve their English pronunciation. Some teachers are lack of responsibility in their teaching. »
- See q. 27»
- Some pedagogical training for teachers/professors would add greatly to some courses»
- I felt constricted to which courses I could pick because of the elective compulsory courses. Therefore I didn"t feel like I had a very directed education. Maybe include more courses in the elective compulsory or reduce the number that must be picked.»
- Execution of the project course»
- I think the programme could benefit from an approach simliar to the CSALL programme with lots of electable courses in a pool with different tracks. It would also be better to have a broader or less industrial influence on the programme. While it is understandable that the automotive industry is strong in Gothenburg, I think it is unwise to have such high influence on the study programme from one industry as it is today.»

- All the reading parts. I feel it kind of hard and booring to read read and read. »
- Don"t assume that we know a lot of Matlab programming, because we don"t. There must be an introduction to Matlab or something, which should be in the bachelor... Also, Logic in computer science is a mandatory course in the beginning of the program. Then I think that the other courses can assume that we already know logic so we don"t have an introduction to this in every period. »
- group dynamics»
- More theory and better dicipline when it comes to start and begin the lectures in time.»
- Better administration of the overall programme. No cources should be just theoretical. These cources should be exculded: Design systems - worst cource I ever took. These cources should be heavily revised: Sustainable development and Nordic architecture - it"s not accetable to have sources that are mainly aimed at exchange students. The majority of the students are still swedish students.»
- More help should be provided for those who struggle with certain aspects of the field of acoustics, such as myself having problems with signal analysis. References to helpful literature would be sufficient.»

- Nothing needs to be changed dramatically. Only some improvement in "Heat and moisture" organization and "Structural Dynamics" content. »
- The general feeling is that nobody wants to be teaching. You are hiring people to do research but few want to teach students, and few have what it takes to teach students. Just because someone is good at doing research (and brings in money to your institution) it does not mean that they are good at teaching. Teachers should have to pass some courses in rhetoric/pedagogic before being assigned a course. Furthermore, the institution does not seem to support/inform new teachers about how to teach at Chalmers. Way too many times we, the students, have to teach the teachers how teaching at Chalmers is done. Lastly, the quality of the teacher aids (TAs) at MPSOF is horrible. Yes, horrible. Not only do many lack basic skills in communicating in English, they also seem to lack knowledge about the subject. In way too many courses the TAs have been to little-to-no help. It seems like PhD students are forced to be TAs in a course just because they work for/under the appointed course responsible. I think this is compromising the quality of the courses greatly since a lot of the courses is based on group work where TAs are supposed to be the ones we can discuss/learn from.»

- All model-based courses (too much focus on models)»
- Selectable courses»
- Raise the level of the Drinking water engineering course. Repetition of bachelor things at the masters level is not fun, at the master we want to learn more and prepare to work with it in reality.»
- The ergonomics courses - these are seen as "our core" but they are not good enough, each year the courses begins with hand-in tasks where the student answers questions similar to the tasks we had during the first course. It feels like they set the bar low to allow students from other programmes to take the course, instead of setting up suitable requirements for the course. Also- genereally I feel that there are high requirements on IDE students to take certain obligatory courses, but its okay for international students to take them without this previous knowledge. This is especially a problem since we have so much group work and the groups can become very unbalanced with many students without the basic knowledge.»
- Minimum english language level requirements, follow up on freeriders in Project groups»

- International students mostly suffer with adjusting to usage of MATLAB as in the industrial biotechnology course. A foundation course for beginners to prepare for this would be highly appreciated as the courses are of course tailored for the Bachelor students at Chalmers so they are more acquainted with the curriculum. The Systems Biology course was an interesting course, but I felt that it did not deliver so well. Hard to understand the concepts and the recommended textbook was very useless and a waste of money. The lecture slides weren"t that useful either. »

- Pure engineer courses such as Modeling and Simulation should be optional rather than obligatory since they do not do anything with medical applications.»
-
- The use of teachers lacking both knowledge and pedagogic experience. A better collaboration with Northumbria regarding the courses is also advicable.

- It is not possible to make a 60p examthesis because you need the MTS course as well as 4 track courses which is impossible if one does not read an extra course during some period. I think this is a really bad thing because some might not be able to take an extra course for various reasons. Also some courses are only availiable to take during the spring of year 5 which makes no sense since everyone should be doing their thesis work at that time. Several courses become unavailiable for those who will finish their studies on schedule. There is also issues with electable courses being in the same block as the compulsory courses. »
- Production flow management course. Not interesting and too narrow Term paper course, take away this course! The idea is somehow good but the schedule were too intese that semester and the supervision of the term paper were way to little compared to what was expected from it. Also writing the Master thesis is enough of report writing Too many group works, was difficult to coordinate and some did not give anything No flexibility of courses from some teachers. For example getting punishment for going on job interviews is idiotic, shouldnt Chalmers help students get jobs instead of working against them?? Compulsory electable courses, how is that even possible?»
- Workload should be increased»
- Modify and revise some courses. Replace Northumbria by another university with a higher rank close to Chalmers. Have Chalmers" theses supervisors grade their students work. Re-design/ re-evaluate the seminars in all/most of the courses since they are just waste of time in many cases especially in project psychology. »

- The IPM master programme should prepare students for undertaking project management roles within different business sectors and industries, which also is clearly stated in the programme syllabus.

- Perhaps allow for a mixture of the branches (distributed / real-time systems) instead of requiring a basic + advanced course in one branch to advance.»
- The scheme coordination so courses do not have lectures on the same time! »
- Remove the course "Term Paper and Seminars" Remove "compulsory" elective courses. It makes it difficult to study abroad and makes no sense really. Either a course is elective or it is not.»
- More expert faculty and more organization. There needs to be a feeling of accountability to the principles of sustainability. It should be taken more seriously. It still just feels like a word people throw around. »
- I think the head of the programme is not enough involved in the programe and that the course evaluation needs to be taken more into consideration. In one course it wasn"t even held. I couldn"t find the goals for the program either on the link presented and I have never seen them before Since there is no homepage which I think is really bad. »

- The focus, more aesthetics. It is a design Master and Design it is almost absent.»
- Remove Urban metabolism it"s not a relevant course.»
- Remove logic in computer science, make multivariate calculus as a prerequisite and make the courses a bit harder (assuming students know multivariate calculus). It bothers me that we are studying Algorithms but we are not the ones knowing the most of it.»

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

- More practical courses (t.ex. Sustainable Building Competition)»
- See above. Since all master programmes include elective courses there should be, in the beginning of the programme, an introduction course that covers all the important fields/systems of the entire programme, but in a general way. This way you will have a general grasp of the important aspects of the subject, regardless of which specific courses you later chose to take. »
- Same as above. More structural and technical details in the courses»
- It is ok, but it is far from world class education.»
- More project management is needed, more courses that are dealing with real life problems, help companies and such.»
- Including the courses of pure math of Gothenburg university.»
- I think the study period could be longer in order for us to better understand what is taught.»
- Add more courses relative to architectural sustainable design so that students can choose. And ask students to go deeper in their projects. An architectural proposal cannot consists just of pictures, they have to draw as well.»
- Keep up the good work!»
- Change programme coordinator»
- See above. »
- Would be interesting to work more together with other master programs in projects - it was better during the bachelor years.»
- Not what I can think of right now.»
- No»
- Focus on one type of students, i.e., those with IT background instead of admitting as many as possible with a more general background. Add more core courses, e.g., usability, ergonomics etc.»
- Form three clear paths to take in either Geotechnics, Water or Traffic Planning with several choices of courses in each area. »
- Focus more on Geology and geotechnics»
-
- Maybe they should specialize a little more towards where there is actually a lot of jobs afterwards. But that is difficult since I also believe the most important thing for learning is being able to study exactly what you"re interested in.»
- No.»
- Better checks on the applicants, I have a feeling some people don"t have enough knowledge for the programs they apply for, and then the standards must be lowered.»
- Add more compulsory courses to chose from!»
- Generally, almost everything is in place. More efforts should be directed to make chalmers to be more and more competitive internationally.»
- Give more respect to people who come and spend time and money to learn something , not just attending in unfair competition with domestic student. To be updated in method of teaching, references and other educational stuff. Not be to much racist about foreign student(just look at the number of foreigner who accepted as aPHD student in the CAS program and compare it with the other successful department like mechanical engineering ) »
- See no. 40»
- no»
- Inclusion of a summer internship in the program b/w 1st and 2nd year.»
- Talk with students, make changes fast, not in depth of 5 years»
- Follow the Chalmers rules better»
- Seems to be some conflicts and too much pride at some of the institutions, which is quite a negative view of the environemntal education!»
- The courses are way to similar to bachelor courses they do not build upon them as much as being the exact same type of courses but within a different domain. The courses do not fundamentally measure and support analythical thinking from the students.»
- Change the name: I think that there really is just one "track" in this program and that is the "process/design" track. I don"t know anyone choosing this program for the environmental courses and the "wood" track is just process with 3 courses specialized in wood knowledge. Innovative is just purely misleading as there is nothing "innovative" in the courses. We learn tried and tested engineering knowledge that is used in the industry, it"s not very innovative (why should it?). Rename it to Chemical process engineering, it sounds better and is more accurate.»
- Try to communicate evan better between the courses so that there are less repetative things.»
- Same as above»
- A great thing would be to have an official graduation celebration for the program itself.»
-
- Split it into two programmes, one for infrastructure and geotechnical engineering and one for water courses.»
- Would be nice to have more technical trainning and tools and less theory. »
-
- This survey totally ignoes us ho didn"t have enough hp to be accepted to the master programme, but still startes to take courses fro the MP. That is quite common in our field, students mixing Master and Bachelor studies. I think it"s important that administrations and teachers are aware of this fact.»
- no»
- It should clearly say when applying master programme that you have to know matlab very good.»
- Invest in pedagogical teachers»
- There are not any good courses within the field of CSN to choose from in period 4.»
- no»
- Change the academic schedule and quit quarters. They just do not work for most internationals. Why should we have 3 months of vacation int he summer.»
-
- Make pedagological course mandatory for teachers»
- The program suffers most from unmotivated and uninspired students. Closer feedback loops and genuine feedback is needed. Work load should be better distributed over terms.»
- no»
- Maybe some cross-science project between different programs.»
- 1- Quarter based system 2- Monitoring the racist behavior of the teachers and the system (like lots of non-English words in a English forms or lots of features on the website of the University is in Swedish not in English, which means those stuff are not for all students) 3- The English content of the University website is not up to date and there are lots of useful stuff only in Swedish not in English, What does that mean? (Thanks God for google.translator). If this university is international, everything must be in that way. »
- chalmers needs to be more connected to the academic world internationally and to the business world. Right now most interessting opportunities in this area is goverened by student organisations such as CBS, CITO, USASIP, Chalmers Internships etc. It is good that students take these initiatives, but because the people that drive these things every year change, the quality fluctuates. Chalmers needs to have a development plan for these extremely important strategic cooperations and integrate them into the curriculum. »
- No.»
- no»
- Same as in previous Q. Less focus on academia and more on what may actually help the students in their professional life.»
- Centralised source of information regarding courses. At least make a working link in the student portal.»
- Improve the structure of the courses and have courses that is more into the geotechnical side. Most of the courses could have been good if it weren"t for the messy organisation!»
- more randomness in assigning groups for projects»
- Better information before and during the programme. »
- Again, more project and group work would be nice. And this is only marginally related to the master programme, but thanks to the way the student union works, there is basically no cooperation between swedish and international students. More group work in bigger groups could help there, but it is also a problem of the student union. »
- It would be interesting to see a master in which it were possible to take the courses FKA081, FUF070, FUF085, FKA091, FKA121, TIF035, TIF106, FUF020 in a logical order, perhaps as one of two possible tracks within the Physics and Astronomy program.»
- Make the programmes mingle more between each other. The guilds (Sektion) are working fine but they create a tendency of programme-isolation.»
- More practical work, e.g. laboratory work, etc.»
- It"s very much repetition in most courses, especially repetition of concurrent programming. I have for example had the "Dining philosophers problem" in three courses this year (Computer Networks, Operating Systems and Distributed systems (and in Concurrent Programming in the Bachelor)). That were even nearly the same question involving the philosophers in the exam in Operating systems and Distributed systems one day apart (Christmas 2012). A suggestion is that Concurrent Programming in reading period 1 in the first year should be mandatory instead of Computer Networks. Then all repetition could be removed from the other courses and we can learn some new things instead.»
- no»
- Perhaps more cross-disciplinary communication/collaboration within Chalmers (staff/equipment/student interaction). The department of architecture seems to be rather isolated and does not take full advantage of the on site availability of other fields of knowledge.»
- Administration, following the rules about exams etc»
- It is convenient for the future of the students give to the master a more engineering approach, as it is in other countries.»
- Have a look at Hyper Island in Stockholm, make students produce more, have better exams, have mentors, create portfolio which you have to show off in the end to your mentor, separate the creative and teaching areas (lectures in lecture halls, studies in kuggen).»
- Better information on how the whole master thesis thing works.»
- Partnerships with other business schools: As an international student, I cant take even one course from Handels which is not given in CHalmers but very important for my master program. Whereas other swedish students toot it.»
- Maybe mix the studios more, the rooms are really separated. »
- Make it easier for students to choose coarses outside their program (and in other schools) and there should be more information about these coarses. Especially if the interest lies within traffic becasue there is not alot of coarses in this field.»
- Please put some information on the website how to graduate with 2 master degrees BOTH from Chalmers. I believe more people than me are interested and I cant find the information. I would like to do another master if possible and I dont know how.»
- I would like to see more product design, and less theory in most of the courses. And I would also like some 3D classes.»
- The programme should be more difficult. »
- More interaction among programmes.»
- Block schedule does not work so well as it was supposed to»
- More group projects could be added. »
- Structure»
- Perhaps some more theoretical courses»
- fewer master programes with higher degree of freedom for the elective courses.»
- Make it clear that it is not required to run two "tracks", only that it is recommended.»
- Industrial connections and Alumni invovlment»
- They are too sensetive to the current staff. A single professor have huge impact on the programme. »
- Increase the work load or atleast make sure there are many exercises to make on your own!»
- Better course packages. at least "mechatronics in embedded systems". It feels like it"s "all over the place" :)»
- International students should be tested for their English knowledge. When working on advanced topics, it"s very frustrating if you cannot communicate verbally, or if you"re writing a report together, and the other person"s language skills are clearly sub-par. Since Swedish students generally have good English, this might be one of the reasons for the lack of integration between Swedish and international students attending the program (which I"m sure you"re aware of).»
- Make sure that the Master programmes are equal when it comes to work load and demands on students and quality of the education. There are large differences between the MP:s Strucutral engineering and Infrastructure and environmental engineering.»
- In my opinion, the work load and quality differs very much between different master programmes (For example, friends that attend Infrastructure and environmental engineering have experienced poor quality of the courses and much lighter work load than us at Structural Engineering and Building Technology). It would be good if this was evened out. »
- Try to make it more of program, the program management should be more active in one way or another binding the class together»
- I supposed to get a high quality of education of Chalmers when I applied here. That was the reason I decided to pay this high tuition fee. After I came here, I feel so disappointed about your education. You offer such a bad service and education with that high reputation, this should be shame. I lost my interests in Computer Science after studying in Chalmers.»
- Improve the communication between the programme and the teacher in order to prepare them for the different moments and rules associated with holding a course. Competence test for TA(Teacher assistant) you cant teach math if you cant count... All project parts should be connected to the theory of a course and should be focused on testing and analyzing our theoretical knowledge rather then learning a tool which is not used in the industry. Feedback on hand ins and result reporting need to be improved to actuallt provide some use for students. The goals for the course and the goals for different grades need to be figured out BEFORE the course and not as it goes... Courses should have a PM. »
- It is good.But more industry exposure is needed. Also University can try to help in providing summer jobs/Internships for the master students»
- Förbättra datasalarna och toaletterna. De suger.»
- The mentioned courses could be added, power system protection»
- Routing technology should be compulsory (core subject). On the other hand, Advanced topics in computer systems and networks should be eligible. »
- A. If you can reduce the duplication between: 1.datacommunication & computer networks. 2.COmputer security & network security. 3. Real time systems & parallel and distributed advnaced real time systems B. Decreasing the number of lecturer per course is good. Increase the number of lecturer per course is bad.»
- use the admin system more and less manual slow work »
- No nothing general. »
-
- Better masters thesis information. I chosed my master thesis too early and then realized (too late) this was not what I wanted to do.»
- better information about thesis»
- Better reception, my programme was supposed to have a dinner with the new students my year, but that never happened. Hence most people in the class don"t know each other very well.»
- Yes, please make any thing that help international students to know and understand many things about the program and also get help from other students, because I saw the Swedish student are not friendly with international students. Some thing more, I thing we need a very good guided from the first day in the program. »
- Make it easier to go abroad whenever you want. »
- Correct exams in time. Coordinate assignments with lecturers. Don"t get mad at students who try to suggest improvements out of the blue and don"t try to wave off problems, because we may be students, but we are not stupid. »
- need more personal time and space for self-critics and thinking»
- not really.»
- Söker man från ett annat universitet i sverige till Chalmers...ska det inte vara lika jobbigt att söka som man söker från utomlands...jag var tvungen att skicka in CV och personligt brev...och beskriva varför jag ville plugga på chalmers...helt onödigt!! Mottagningen var så dålig...i mer än 2 veckor visste jag inte vem mina klasskompisar var... »
- More hands on product development that can be used early in career»
- You need to fire a number of employees from the Student centre that obviously can not do their job correctly.»
-
- I have studied my first year abroad and have thus not attended any lectures at Chalmers within this master program yet.»
- Problem solving = Engineering. »
- The programmes in campus Lindholmen really lacks in administration (schedules never in time edit, use computer systems that only GU students have access to, don"t follow the Chalmers standard in lecture times/exam rutines/mandatory moments in course PM etc.) and always struggles to be some part of the "IT university", which for me as a student only means to put couses on a lower technological level to make the courses accessible for GU students that earlier studied a program where no programming or math is teached. This severly lowers the quality of the civings graduated from Chalmers.»
- Maybe have Dyn Sys before Comp Bio 1?»
- no opinion»
- I would have liked to study in Johannenberg. I often felt isolated at Lindholmen. Moreover, as winter is depressing, not being close to most of my friends who study in Johannenberg, makes winter even more depressing.»
- Civil Engineering dont have a good road and tunnel engineering master. There is a infrasturcture master with few road courses and many water courses. This is a problem for many students.»
- Increase the exam passing rate from 30% to 80%.»
-
- Demand higher grades for student coming from other school or that they have done cases before!»
- As above»
- We needs more help to find a thesis project topic.»
- Quality needs to get up. Im putting two years into this and then you want to get more back. It feels like people that are responsible for the teaching in the courses have been changed a few times for often and the new people coming in dont have the right profile for this job. Some changes have of course been good (Modelling and planning) but there should be some higher quality control/requirements for having a course at this level. Even if the persons are very good at their subject, they should not be teaching. »
- The attitude among teachers and professors. Take more responsibility, be active, listen to the students and answer emails. Understand that we work so hard, but yet we don"t get any credit for it. »
- Better questionnaire. This one was fairly confusing»
- No»
- Female lecturers usually have better English skills and communication skills, and give more interesting lectures.»
- Improved quality control of foreign exchange students outside EU/EES. You have no idea what it feels like working with a basket case in course that you have no previous experience from!»
- No»
- Information should be given about the different optional courses that belong to the program. The only institution that has given any information at all about optional courses are the nuclear chemistry institution. It should be in the interest of the institutions to give the students information about their courses. »
- Sometimes it seams taht the Erasmus students have more support than the students that are in Chalmers for the full Master programme.»
- Please check more SERIOUSLY what grades and what cours the international and eramuse students they have studys before. The knowlege levels is very differents. All courses in bacholer we have been studies in chalmers is prepare to all thoses advance levels in Master which is very helpful. But when it comes to group work,it"s not just communication problem or culture differences, the MAIN POINT IS the knowlege levels to the students. Almost every course we take in Master do includede a groupe work with mix different students in different background. It is really nice to get to know new peoples and make new friends BUT when it comes to working for the project there are lots of problem! They can"t understand things like we did because they didn"t study same courses like we did therfor it cost much more time on explain what they should know and what they should do or sometime we have to do thier jobb to get it done! Please put more consideration on this problem!!!!! This might sounds a really bad situation. I didn"t write this comment because i had bad experience on just one group project. I have heard from many other friends around in difference masters too. This problem is giving us more experience on our works but it also make us more frustrate, and stressful. That is very unnecessary.»
- Replace some of the teachers. I personally didn"t like Tuan Le as the teacher because his knowledge is too dispersed among 3 courses he conducts. He seems to be an expert in none. He pursues quantity and not quality. Many in my group wanted him to be replaced. »
- No.»
- A little more demanding...»
-
- Compress the schedule, have more courses and not mandatory lectures, it is just a waste of time to sit there if you feel that you don"t learn a lot of new things. Let us vote with our feet!»
- The possibility to have more presentations in a way to prepare the student to present at the end of their MT»
- Develop the learning process and try to adapt it to all student. I know it is hard and people try their best - but you can always do it better.»
- More collaboration with the industry is always good. The student world always feel so distant from the industry and what you do in the real working life/climate.»
- There are really great teatchers that should be celebrated. But those who can"t do cources that the students appriciate should be exculded from the masters programme.»
- Better contacts with the industry»
- Not at this point in time. »
- no»
- Give the student more information about the different courses available for selection in the program. Some times we don"t have enough information to make a good decision.»
- I think it would be awesome to have on course each semester in the old style. 8 weeks then exam. And the other course should have a mid-exam after 4 weeks and then a project with a presentation the rest of the semester.»
- Yes, Replace the programme director Göran Lindahl. Instead, ask Pernilla Gluch to be the new programme director. »
- Not really, I am generally pleased»
- Look over the amount of work students do. Much of the tasks and assignments are given from older students, and that is often the reason why most of the students manage to deliver the work.»
- Not really. You are doing excellent job!»
- Revise all classes and make all the teachers prepare for their classes...no old slides that they didn"t make (Life Cycle Assessment)»
- Setup stricter quality standards for the MP. Hire staff that are interested in teaching. Side-step the slow administration mechanism at Chalmers to ensure that you can adapt the courses more quickly to students" and teachers" feedback.»
- More study visits to companies.»
- None»
- The 7-week study period is not good for courses in Basic Science. They probably work well for engineering courses but for courses like astronomy, we need the normal 6-month framework.»
- See point 40»
-
- There have been some problems with lectures that have been cancelled with extremly short notice (once a lecture was cancelled only a few minutes before it should start). I believe this has only happened for external lectures, but sometimes it feels like the communication to the students could have been better.»
- Increase the number of courses! This in order to make it possible to really get a "indicting" and start to become something (get an area of profession) - geo and water to start with but also road, railway etc.»
- I support that student from different masters programme should be able to take courses on another programme, though this depends on the course. If group work is a big part, than no.»
- More Resources such as TAs so better and individual feedback can be given»
- Accomplishing the program, it is better to provide opportunity for the student to continue their studies(PhD) or to find a job. You need to seriously think about that! (I am employed by ABB, Ludvika, Thanks to doing my master thesis here)»
-
- Listen to the students and not only to the companies! Trust your students.»
- Don"t listen to lazy students »
- If a lecturer have had a course for too long he should hand over the responsibility to some one more motivated. Check how other universites lecture the courses. Hand out lecture notes at least one day before the actual lecture with a brief of what the lecture will be about and why it"s important»
- Organisation in wastewater engineering! Great course just poorly organised leaving me confused about what the next steps are to complete. Also, it"s difficult to find an academic who can offer you advice on making an academic move, such as explaining how one might arrange to co-operate with professionals abroad for a Master"s thesis. »
- Q. 22, 23, 24 are not possible to answer. Wrong link»
- no»
- Extend the courses in geotechnics.»
- I would have liked to have an option of a Lean Product Development course as a elective or semi-elective course.»
- Not at the moment.»
- Focusing on courses that fall within European academic and industrial Biomedical research priorities. Currently Chalmers have no partnership in EU funded projects related to Biomedical engineering, i.e. Medical Image analysis research.»
- no»
- Follow the outline for keeping and administrating courses, today this not happens in all courses. »
- need more outside activities»
- Structural engineering and building material courses should also focus on other materials than in the programme, such as brick masonry, alternative cast techniques, fibre reinforced concrete, etc»
- no opinion»
- I got my job thanks to the number of jobs i have had in the student union and it"s committees. It is a very appreciated way of improving one"s ability to work in groups and show initiative. Because of that, I think it should be endorsed more from Chalmers than it is, when important events collide teachers often show little understanding for this, which I think they should. »
- Please observe teachers and make follow ups about how the students feel after a course - not with forms like this but maybe the administrators could come out to the last lecture or something. Yes it is a huge amount of work, but the observations about the courses are VERY important for the future of Chalmers and therefor you should invest in this kind of evaluation, and maybe reconsider the way you do it today (like with these web-based forms that nobody fills in)»
- Should mix more research and practical work, since not everybody is interested in research and that is almost the only thing we have done.»
- better contact between the 2 campussus, Lindholmen and Johanneberg. They are so separated that it feels like different schools.»
- Better structure and organization.»
- I would like to have a joint collaboration for master thesis projects/internship opportunities with local and regional biotech companies. It is especially difficult and challenging for international students to find work here. »
- connection to industry through smmer internships»
-
- Better information about the programmes»
-
-
- The international students coming from outside of Europe should be able to speak better English. Additionally a certain amount of the students should possess experience from the construction industry to improve discussions during lectures as well as it would help with group projects.»
-
- If action is taken to change a course after an evaluation like his one. Notify the earlier students with the changes so they can see their complaints / praise having effect. »
- Encourage giving and receiving personal feedback, some professors were good with allowing one to come and get feedback from essays or exams but some not Even more presentations »
- no.»
- - More interaction with companies - More career days (with INSPIRING presenters) - More events in general »
- I think that is should be mentioned somewhere that in my program there is a big emphases on the construction industry, although it is called international PM. It feels like it is only international on geographical level not subject level. I would like to see more guest lectures from other fields than construction. Otherwise I"m very pleased with the program!»
- Opportunities for working in the lab as a research assistant. »
- better structure in many of the courses, too many subjects in one course»
- A chance to put the learning into practise by having an internship included in the programme. »
- Nope»
- Pedagogic courses for teachers??»
- Rethink the structure of a program containing both building technology and building design/structural engineering »
- The university could have assisted with payment for the trips. Bether administrative planning, provide the students with clearer instructions about courses etc.»
- Don"t change things in the last minute! (IDE-project report)»
- what I answered above. Sort it out!»
- I prefer American type of university.american way teaching.i suggest you to emulate them.»
- That would be some teachers" English skills.»
- More information from administration of the program to the students of the master.»
- I really missed that there where no organized social event for my master program in the first week (as I understand it most of the other MSC programs had at least one occasion?). »
- Lyssna på studenterna och näringslivet (som tycker att vår master har för dålig kvalitet»
- no»
- studieplatser för i helvete, ska man behöva sitta med öronproppar i korridoren eller?????????»
- Lower the limit of "obligatoriskt valbara" courses from 5 to 4 so that one could read the MTS and 4 "obligatoriskt valbara" to do a 60p thesis.»
- More case solving and presentation training. More flexibility of complete Masterprogram Include ethics discussions Make the teaching less dry »
- The studies load of the 2nd year is not distributed wisely. Very short time to finish the master at Northumbria which is not reasonable. »
- I would say that since most students are new to each other, I would have more group work with mixed group each time so that you can get to know everyone in your class.»
- Be more at the frontier of technology and design»
- The courses available for selection is extremely limited in the program MPIEE, and I think more courses related to this program should be provided.»
- Nop»
- Re place the teachers, give some modernity. It needs to be more concrete. We need to come up with sustainable solutions, not just talk and talk. »
- please encourage english, to find more opportunities to do master thesis»
- Providing more info. on some very important webpages that are relative to your courses, which can help students shortcut to the "core" and avoid wasting useless searching time.»
- swedish students should be forced to work work in groups with international students, this should not be optional so as to give international students a chance to interact with swedish students. There is too much of a barrier between swedish and international students.»
- no opinion»
- It should be mandatory for all future engineers that are developing future technology to attend a course in entrepreneurship and get some basic knowledge in how to see, create an protect value of ideas and which steps that are needed to take an idea from the research state to the market. It would wide everyone"s perspective and create a basic understanding for how thing interact. »
- REMOVE THE MTS! Nobody likes it, it just takes up time. Place it in the bachelor degree instead.»
- NO»
- A specific visit on companies in the start or in the department (lab) where students might work in the future. You often have a clear opinion if being a PhD when finished. This might be changed if you can learn what they are actually doing. »
- No suggestions»
- The non-compulsory non-track related courses are had to choose due to the compulsory and track courses. I feel like I wanted to follow a track the entire first year which had the consequence of not being able to choose the other courses from the spring term. »
- so teaching assistant"s english speaking is very bad»
- Student should be able to choose thesis outside the university»
- It think it is very important that Chalmers make sure that all student that is taken into this masters program have a backgorund and sufficient knowledge to manage the studies. Many students with backgrounds from outside Chalmers seemed to be missing enough knowledge to take the courses. It resulted in a heavy workload for fellow students that had to do all work in the case groups. The learning and overall level of the program went down significantly. »
- No»
- More collaboration with companies for summer job/internships»
- The scholarship conditions could be flexible allowing on to do more than 120 credits and extend the program if required as well.»
- No.»
- It would be good if there were more rooms available for booking, some days it is impossible to get a room to work during the day, even though you book several weeks in advance.»
- There seems to be an unfortunate tendency for teachers to get comfortable as they age, if you could find a way to make them keep up with technical aspects as well as showing interest and flexibility.. that"d be dandy :)»
- Take sustainability more seriously. Designers should leave here with the ability to evaluate sustainable projects and see through greenwashing. We should be able to design with rigorous standards of sustainability and be able to measure the outcomes and effects of our decisions... and have the vocabulary to express this and discuss it.»
- no»
- It could be nice to have a more extensive introduction to MATLAB.»
- Add more courses so we can deepen our knowledge in areas we are intrested and would like to work within.»
- NO»
- no»
- summer school for newly admitted students to help adjustment in academic environment, or if this already exist, the information of it.»
- Improve information to applicants.»
- More information should be available to students about the overall life-cycle of the Masters program and life in Sweden. »
- Spread the information about Industrial Ecology more. Students in most of the programmes at chalmers does not now that it exist.»
- See Q40»
- I wish the learning environment was more fast paced. It feels like a lot more can be covered, and a lot more can be learned. I also do not understand why, even when you do projects like an 80 page LCA, you still need to take the exam to pass. I think that should suffice to pass (with the presentation), and then you can take the exam to get a better grade possibly. Also, communication between teachers at the program could be better.. a lot of the slides from the LCA class were identical to those from ESA. Why go? If it"s for the people who haven"t taken ESA, then maybe the teacher should make it clear, ok this part will be repetition for these people, so you don"t have to come. I just wish the program was approached much more critically... it"s too relaxed to do anything seriously. Also, there has to be a new way to do the projects... I"ve been in project groups where I had to ask people to contribute, because they never did anything. And then when they started working, I couldn"t do my work because they constantly needed my help. Just ridiculous! There is no standard for citations for example.. you should write in Harvard style or APA for example, but people just make it up and no one checks it. Also, should the papers be checked for plagiarism? Maybe they should... not to make it more difficult but to make people more aware of what they"re actually doing.»
- Start earlier and more pedagogical with information on how to write academical reports (master thesises) and make better use of the preparatory courses for the thesises.»
- I would like a program somewhere in between computer science and software engineering, some core computer science courses mixed with the most important parts of project management etc. Computer science is too focused on research and software engineering is too focused on "management". More interaction within a programme, at the moment it just feels like two extra years of various courses, haven"t had any interaction (outside coursework) with other students in the programme (I think the few events available are mostly attended by exchange students, for obvious reasons).»
- Add electronic courses biomedically related (even elective)»
- No opinion»
- I would appreciate some kind of guidance to write in English, as this is important throughout the master and at least I had my whole bachelor in Swedish and wasn"t very used of writing in English from before. Especially to write technical theses and reports. »
- Challenge us - and that doesn"t mean with assignments that don"t reflect what"s taught in the lectures. Challenge us by deep diving into things, not skimming over the surface.»
- answer 40.»
- More Geo courses»
- I think what I missed most for reception at chalmers, apart from many good and strong sides that I enjoyed, are descriptive information about the educational structure and pedagogical philosophy which is being pursued in Chalmers. I lost a big deal of time and energy to adjust myself to the new educational system compared to my home university. I know this might be a little bit personal and subjective maybe, simultaneously it can be a common experience of other students. I think if I have had the opportunity to be introduced to the program package and its long term goals in a e.g. seminar-like or any other conscious and explicit ways, I would have a better picture and plan to be more efficient and productive to us all offerings of my program. Especially for career preparation purposes I never had the picture that were I am in may career path, what are my specialties and where do I like to go in future according to courses that I took and experiences I gained from program. Since I think this program is a very good and well-reasoned one as a whole, it could be even more effective in training specialists if it also offers perspectives, long term strategic view to student itself and similar complementary and supporting information which are never thought in the class rooms about where and how in the external world one can land and start serving society along side enjoying its personal gains. After completion of my degree I feel that I know a little bit of many things and hardly can be expert in one particular field and this is not in a normal sense in my opinion.»
- Try to motivate the students to do more projects and develop their skills in their free time! Talk about/arrange competitions etc... though this is probably outside the responsibility of the masters programme...»
- Mandatory Swedish course, spread over one year, for non Swedish speaking students.»
- take more attention to future of the students. »
- maybe build some ways that the new student they can talk to the elder student who already been here for a while, that will benifit a lot for students. Also, prepare some short language training courses for international students before the real courses start. That will definitely help. KTH is doing that and it goes very well.»

- Teacher doesnt have time and doesnt read through the thesis » (Not at all)
- I have done a 60 hp master thesis and so far I have only got 4 hours of supervision - In a WHOLE YEAR. That is superbad.» (Not at all)
- The focus from my supervisors were mostly on grammar and text structure, very little on the technical content. I don"t feel that I have learned more than I new from the start. But maybe this is normal, what do I know.» (Not at all)
- It was horrible. First of all it took a long time before we were appointed an examinator, we had to start the work with the thesis before an examinator had been appointed to us and we were not late with submiting our thesis plan. We only had an examinator from Chalmers, no supervisor, and the examinator didn"t give us any feedback whatsoever during the whole time we were working with our thesis. We started in January 2012 and expected to be finished in June. When we thought we were finished and had our presentation the examinator came with a lot of opinions and change requests which resulted in a lot of more work for us. Since we had limited time after the presentation due to our jobs and since the examinator took long times to respond to our further submissions, and since he always came with new change requests, we ended up not being finished until late April 2013. This would not have happened if we had got more feedback while we were actually working with the thesis. I am really disappointed for this. My degree was delayed a whole year.» (Not at all)

- Since master thesis is only done once in lifetime(for most of us master-students), and I have no relatives or friend which I could share thoughts with, my supervison from chalmers was suffered.

I couldn"t trust her, but then she woke up after half of my thesis and said I did things wrong, but we had hard to understand each other.» (Not so satisfied)
- More supervision is needed!» (Not so satisfied)
- No problem regarding the skills of the supervisor. But the organisation of the master thesis is ridicolus. Nobody knows anything regarding to dates and deliverables. There is so many conflicting messages» (Not so satisfied)
- wrong field of mine» (Not so satisfied)
- Very poor guidance from the supervisor (at the company). Large changes in the topic of the thesis after project start, relating to a ill defined problem to begin with. What the one-pager ad presented has not been what he wanted us to focus on, thereby making the thesis into something else than expected. This might have to do with the fact that he was not vary knowledgable on the topic. Not very pleasant for us doing the thesis, and a source of a lot of stress. It is very hard as a student to affect situations like this. Perhaps more guidlines, something like a FAQ, could be posted by the university covering situations like this.» (Not so satisfied)

- I have been treated as a lab helper and pushed into working 9-5 everyday and work on some red days without a salary. I believe there should be rules for how much a M.Sc. student should work in their thesis so as not to be treated in such a way.» (Not so satisfied)

- My company is kind of in the area.» (Yes (for the next 5 years anyway))
- Miss like a general comment box so I write here: The problem is a lot about communication. Chalmers always claims to have good contacts with the industry and that the students really easy will get job (there is a deficit of engineers) In reality is it hard to see that the student gets any contacts at all with the industry (except through CHARM etc). And the lack of engineers seems not to be to true, I know many friends that have had a hard time to find a job.
