7. What did you think about the different lecturers/teachers?


- very bad teaching skills regarding Raul, it"s the exercise leaders task to solve the exercises on the black board not the students.»
- Rauls sätt att ta upp elever till tavlan för att lösa tal de aldrig sett och sen få dem att känna sig som idioter är kanske inte helt optimalt. Övningarna var i övrigt förvirrade och oklara.»
- The only thing that I can critisize about Lucien Koopmans" lecture is that he showed everything in a very small period of time (everything went very fast), but this is not his fault.»
- Sven is a great teacher.»

8. What did you think about the exercises/assignments/lab?


- Assignment 1: wrong input data, made it very hard to understand the heat release. Didn"t learn anything. Problem exercises: The problems were good, but the teaching not.»
- Assignment 1 needs to be more specified»
- Wrong compression ratio put many of us in a trouble in the first assignment, however it was very useful about learning how heat release rate could be handled.»
- Buy more and better tools for the dismantling!!»

- Labbarna tog mycket tid och gav lite kunskap. Hade denna tid använts till att föreläsa och läsa på kring dessa områden hade man lärt sig mer tror jag.» (Good)
- Very interseting course with good teachers!» (Excellent)
- Very interesting introduction course that was adequate detailed and reasonable "overviewing" at the same time.» (Excellent)

16. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Dismantling exercise.»
- The lectures given by Lucien and all the parts related to combustion»
- Assignment 2 and the dismantle lab»
- Everything was really good and well presented so no comments...»
- cinnamon buns and coffe»
- Heywood, the lab(dismantling), assignment 2, the midterm and all the lectures.»
- Föreläsningarna»
- dismantling»
- Almost everything»
- The dismantling»
- Assigment topics, examination strategy, friendly approach to the students and helping them inside and outside the class (I am sure that those will be preserved)»
- assignments, dismantling lab»
- Everything except the stuff that I think should be changed.»

17. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- who teach the lecture for excise for mid term should be improved»
- Clearer instructions for the assignments.»
- Assignment 1 should be more clearer what the purpose with tha task is!»
- The first assignment. Not the derivation of the heat release but the part about the Matlab code.»
- the exercise leader»
- The problem lectures with Raul, a different approch is needed. Indata to assingment 1!»
- Labbarna är jag skeptisk till. Både rapport och powerpoint presentation kräver mycket förberedelse.»
- The counting excersizes»
- Try to specifiy the assignments a little bit better. A lot of unecessary questions would have been avoided.»
- Time alloted to Lucien Koopmans" lecture should be increased if possible (to digest the topics covered in that course).»
- The timing of excersises: We didn"t get the problems from the web and we were supposed to do them in advance (indirect message from Raoul). I suggest that the excersises are a bit delayed (one week?) and the mid-term exam delayed as well. »
- The teacher for the calculation problems, Raul, was not good. It seems somehow that he"s not very competent, it just doesn"t feel that serious. I also think some of his solutions to the problems were wrong. For the course to be more serious next year this has to be changed. Also, the MATLAB program for exercise 1 did not work properly, which wasn"t that great. Another thing that I noticed was that the lectures often were shorter than they were supposed to. Whether this is good or not is up to each person, but some people might not like it.»

18. Additional comments

- should have like a spare help hours for midterm exam»
- I would like to see (or touch) more engines (maybe a longer distmantling lab)»
- Sven och Lucien var inspererande och jag tyckte man lärde sig mest under föreläsningarna. Bra med ett papper på vad som skulle läsas i kurslitteraturen.»
- Perfect course for learning the basics of ICE.»
- Good to have the mid-term done beforehand, so one could concentrate on the theory.»
- More laborations would have been fun. Very interesting course, I will continue with the advanced ICE course.»
