- The course is about control in general, not digital control specifically. This is the sequel to the basic control course.

16. Additional comments

- I didn"t like the home assignment for different reasons. The modelling part needed to be correct in order to get the rest correct. If something was wrong in your model, you had to redo everything you had done. It was also difficult to know where you should read to be able to answer the questions. Some more guidance would have been nice.»
- Our lecturer was very friendly, and had a very respectful attitude towards us students. He listened to our questions, and seemed to know what we would find hard. He really seemed to like teaching, and seemed to find his subject interesting. This was very inspiring. More lecturers (and people in general) should be like him. =)»
