- Nothing.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Everything»
- It would be nice if you have some projects that are running in close cooperation with industries so that the students can get in touch with the real world.If possible also the students can take snack-training at the designated companies.»
- Everything. Engagement of the teacher. Clear project. Clear deadlines. The tutor should also force the group to set a project-leader. More help. Smaller groups. Scheduled project time. Mandatory meetings.»
- smaller group»
- To transfer this course to study period 2 and run it concurrently with Applied Computational electromagnet. This would allow the two courses power market management and power electronics solutions run in the 2nd study period be benefitted by many students. »
- the organisation»
- -organization of the course. -tutors»
