Study plan

By Study plan we mean a concrete plan (on a paper or in your mind) regarding what courses you like to take and if you have decided what your studies at Chalmers will aim at.

- still follow my Study plan, but have added more» (I have changed my Study plan)
- I´,m doing my master thesis somewhat earlier than I originally planned.» (I have changed my Study plan)
- Most mandatory courses were not what I expected. The overall level of education was so much lower than the first three years at Chalmers. Much more cases, but the group members were not as skilled as during my first three years at I. I lacked some courses within the field of logistics. The logistics course was good, but the planning and especielly the ERP-course were below expectations. However, the optional course with Kenth Lumsden, "Mgmnt of Physical distribution" was by far the best course. My suggestion is that his competence should be used more within the SCM-program. The first course was a good introduction but the last course (Dist networks) felt very old-fashioned, with lots of examples from the early 90"s. The first course had so many different cases that it became difficult because of the previously mentioned fact that the group members had so different knowledge levels within this field. » (I have changed my Study plan)
- haven"t changed my study plan but definitively I am looking for courses outside SCM or even Chalmers.» (Other)

- Very good.» (Very satisfied)
- Very satisfied except for "Information Systems for SCM" where the assistant did really not have the right behaviour. insulting students on wrong bases is not a way of teaching I appreciate. The examiner was good.» (Satisfied)
- some of the "very satisfied", some of them "OK", average "satisfied"» (Satisfied)
- SCM 1 was really good, as well freigt transport system and distribution network. Manufacturing and SC planning was ok and information system was a disaster, however, the topic is very central and needed but the course have to be changed. » (Satisfied)
- The first course was a hell of workload. the tasks along the way should have given some points to LADOK since they were so many. It is not fare to have an exam that is for 15 studypoints. the stress made several crazy.» (Ok)
- extremely technical. Seem to go extremely into detail. After the course of SCM, just seems like we are hearing the same things once and again, just from other perspectives. would be more challenging to face new things.» (Ok)
- The first intro course in SCM was good, the second one about Material Planning was pretty good, but the last two mandatory courses were really bad.» (Not satisfied)

- I loved the Lean Production course» (Very satisfied)
- Many of the courses feel like they are the same. It is hard to see a clear line between the different courses.» (Satisfied)
- Mgmnt of physical distribution was by far the best course during this year. I really miss more advanced courses within logistics, eg masters planning, inventory planning, localization parameters etc. My second course, IP strategies was not really within the SCM-field, but it was a very interesting course. For quarter 4, no SCM-courses seemed interesting and from what I heard from the people who took them, they didn"t seem very good for me. As I mentioned before, more qualified courses directly related to SCM would be of interest. » (Satisfied)
- I weren"t satisfied with the ERP course» (Satisfied)
- But it is too few courses to choose from for the last semester.» (Satisfied)
- There are too few courses in supply chain management, there could be an optional SCM2 where you could get some deaper knwledge and another good course would be a SCM project (late year 2) course, filed with cases and seminars and where we could try to do test our knowledge and have discussions on how problems in different SCM areas could be solved. Would also like to have some elective distribution or marketing curse for SCM and also more lean production courses, maybe lean production for SCM where you handle the contact between lean companies, lean transportation and sustainability and so on» (Ok)
- they go with the same line as the mandatory...not real alternatives, if that"s what you are looking for.» (Not satisfied)

- The course was interesting, but it was mostly stuff that I already knew from previous courses. Furthermore, there was a misfit between the course and the exam where many people thought the exam would be really difficult and worried about it. However, it turned out to be quite easy and no one failed.» (The learning outcome was toolow, Other)
- I feel that I did not grasp the course and the subject during the time I took the course. Although now I feel that I did learn alot but still I think the presentation of the subject should be different, with a more indepth presentation of the meaning of the course and on information systems. » (Other)
- Reading a book and articles and having an exam just repeating bullet points isn"t that interesting... and the service industry does not fit into my future plans.» (It was not relevant, It was not interesting, The learning outcome was toolow, It was not in line with my study plan)
- See question 8.» (Other)
- The whole course was unstructured and the supervisor was not involved at all, and even rude from time to time. He positioned himself over everyone else in class, and could make really sarcastic comments.» (The supervisor made it not interesting)

- An MTS-course that we have to take.» (It was not relevant, It was not in line with my study plan)
- G. Stefansson was never there. The case was the worst we"ve done (lack of info, "instructions"). The textbook was a practical guide for managers, it was really hard to learn something from it. Additionally, the lectures didn"t try to connect the course to our program or to SCM at all, it was just summarizing the book chapters.» (It was not relevant, It was not interesting, The learning outcome was toolow, It was not in line with my study plan, The supervisor made it not interesting)

- even more than expected» (Yes, very much)
- The programme have been well organized and the courses fit very well together. Also, the lecturers seem really aware of the structure of the whole programme which enables them to connect the course content to the whole SCM area and the other courses we"ve studied. Unfortunately, I"ve discovered that I"m not very interested in the SCM area anymore. This has nothing to do with the programme, it"s just that I"ve discovered other areas that are more of interest for me.» (Yes, mostly)
- more lack of SCM courses that i expected» (Yes, mostly)
- Actually, it was worse than I thought. But the courses with Woxelius and Lumsden was so good that a OK-level can be reached. However, I miss some relevant management courses. I think the manufacturing planning course missed quite much and didn"t give me the knowledge I wanted. Additionally, the ERP-course was far below expectations and distribution networks was to old-fashioned (and boring...). » (Different from what I thought)

- However, some guidelines concerning compensation for participating in the course evaluation team would be great. I think that the students should get lunch on each meeting as well as get the course book (which we got in the Information Systems course, that was great)» (Yes)
- But it should be more strongly emphasised that the course evaluation team should talk with the other in the course and present their ideas as well as their own.

- aid/assistance/helping hands during the Six Sigma project. Consultation hours/hours of an open office at regular intervals would have been helpful.»
- The students from abroad. They have no respect for have we wrk in Sweden. Many of them copy+paste info from the internet right in to the cases etc. It is horrible.»

- The mandatory courses the second semester»

- Some of the administration parts haven"t been good, like the course election for the autumn, we didn"t get any information at all.»
- All students do not have the same study background so the graded group assignments are sometimes VERY unfair.»
- too different people regarding previous knowledge and language skills, some students were really bad and tried to gain from the work the other team mebers did without working/ being able to work theirselves (e.g. because they chose 3 or 4 course per quarter)»
