- The homepage could be more structured.» (Rather well)
- The homepage with all the folders was really confusing. It took to long time to find what you were searching for. Maybe a better structure would be helpful.» (Rather well)

- Pers lecture could be better and also the Rolfs lecture did have that clear substance» (Poor)
- Man lärde sig inte så mycket i slutändan, men det kanske inte är svårare än så med robotar...» (Fair)
- I like the scope of the course. The labs were good, but very time consuming. » (Good)
- I think the concept and the devision in the several parts is good. Also the guest lectures are interesting, but not relevant for the exam. Why? However, the teachers should always prepair their lessons and calculate equations at least once before. It"s a shame if you can"t solve a single one in front of the class and the students wn"t learn anything.» (Good)
- It can be better by better teaching in Kinematics part.» (Good)
- The second lab was a bit too heavy on the preparation part, but overall finally a course where you could see some applications first-hand.» (Good)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The laborations. »
- kinematic lectures»
- The labs»
- The labs were good. Videos showing how the robots work.»
- Labbar»
- The Lab assignments. »
- the labs»
- Laborations, meetings with industrial partners.»
- Laboration»
- one of the lab exercises»
- The devision.»
- The labs. Keep them, re-read the lab pms and update the layout/text to make it more understandable.»
- The laborations.»
- I think guest lectures»
- The laborations»
- The ABB and IBM lab!»
- The labs, but maybe work on the preparation assignments to shorten the time.»
- Laborationenra »

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Buy Per a laptop :)»
- kinematic lecturer»
- Some of the external lectures were marketing their companies rather than teaching within the robotic field.»
- Bättre föreläsningar om kinematik, ersätt de icke givande gästföreläsarna (de som bara gör reklam) med bättre»
- It"d be better to have all the course material together in a single compendium or something.»
- better exercises in kinematics»
- Many things, for once the course shouldn"t have an exam only a project where the project is like the ABB laboration. The article studies.»
- The course literature. It was hard to seek answers, and not very clear which texts that were important»
- Räknehandledaren skulle behöva en fusklapp då det MYCKET ofta räknades fel på tavlan och exemplen tog mycket långt tid. »
- The guest lectures should be involved in the exam and the presentations shoule be available to download. Otherwise student will think they are useless. The kinematiks part should be more structured and presented in a better way.»
- Some of the guest lectures were pretty bad.»
- lab work and assignments. I think there was not enough help and literatures regarding assignments were very poor. in general lab assignments were very poor designed, conducted and organized. »
- The projectwork...no problem with it but at least we had some issues with people dropping out. This meant a greater workload for the rest of us.»
- The project work!»
- kenematic excercises should be discuses more clearly»
- Remove Per Nykvist»
- Några av gäst föreläsningarna var för mycket in säljning av specifika program. Mer strukturerade föreläsningar i kinematiken, Pär bör inte räkna direkt på tavlan utan att ha stöd anteckningar, mycket tid gick åt till att rätta felskrivningar. i övrigt var kinematik föreläsningarna bra.»

16. Additional comments

- I think the setup for passing the second lab should be reviewed. Maybe it would be worth the cost having one more person helping out during those hours. As it were I think the workload for Per was too high which resulted in unecessary wait for those groups that were well prepared.»
- It think you have to do something about the exercises, more specify what the demands are in that area.»
- Jag vet att det är svårt men kanske lite mer objektivitet rörande fabrikat. Kanske lite väl styrt mot ABB då projekten skulle skrivas vilket även ledde till en del misförståd rörande opponeringen.»

- Bättre Lab-PM med tydligare instruktioner angående vad som rymms i flaskorna, vikter på flaskorna etc. Problemen med att fördela vattnet jämt ska inte vara det som tar tid i en robot-lab. » (Fair)
- too much to do» (Adequate)
- Hard if you don"t know how to programm.» (Adequate)
- The instruction should be more accurate and clear. » (Adequate)
- Good labs but Per i a terrible teacher.» (Adequate)
- Roliga labbar» (Good)
- It could be more practical, since basically there"d be no difference between making tea and for example a simple welding or such a thing in difficulty point of view. On the other hand, the tea maker became soooo boring after a while, when it came to understanding the fact that the bottles are not in a good shape and such annoying things. You know, the students take time on the assignment and they have other courses to accomplish as well. It"s really annoying to face such problems right when you think you"re finished with the assignment. It"d be highly appreciable if we see less problems like this.» (Good)

- Time consuming.» (Fair)
- Tydligare struktur gällande vad som förväntades av projektet, en mer enhetlig linje i vilka riktningar varje projekt syftade på. Förtydliga vilken fördjupning vareje projekt skall ta redan innan arbetet börjar. Gör presentationenra obligatoriska så folk går på dom» (Fair)
- Kändes mest bara att de va för att man skulle ha nåt att göra» (Adequate)
- It was o» (Adequate)
- The projects could be made larger or have an earlier deadline. It felt like not a lot of work had to be put into it even though we had several weeks to finish it.» (Adequate)
- The method for presentation and feedback was very helpful for better understanding of other projects. Using typical questions from each report in written exam was a proper evaluation method.» (Good)
- Very good team work and perfect appointments with the teacher. I felt exactly like when I was working in the industry, having meetings with the project control team and other managers. That was awesome! » (Excellent)

- Mest reklam för ABB och andra företag» (Rather poor)
- I would like to have a book or at least more texts on the homepage in a structured way.» (Rather poor)
- Too much to read!! I don"t know anyone who read all the cinematics parts.» (Rather good)
- Students don t need to buy expensive books!» (Very good)
- Unfortunately the presentations from guest lecturers were missed. That was very helpful to have some of the literatures and course PM before the beginning of the course.» (Very good)
- Was a lot of folders now and got a little messy towards the end, but the system is excellent.» (Very good)
