- it gave a good introduction to what TRIZ is» (Good)
- it was fun to have a course that where hands on, even if the subject could be theoretical» (Excellent)

16. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- There should be contact persons for the projects, someone that knows there will be students asking questions this and that week and has set off some time to answer them. »
- Concentrated theory. The book is good too.»
- The project work, lectures and guest lectures.»
- Group-Project»
- The project work»
- Exam»
- The Emerson guest lecture»
- the project»
- The subject was really interesting!»
- The course is great overall.»
- Everything. I think 4 lectures + 1 guest lecture is quite little.»
- the course content is really nice. »
- everything»
- Having a guest lecture»
- The lectures»
- Guest lecture.»
- the project work»
- the project work»
- A guest lecturer presenting the benefits of the TRIZ-method in industry.»

17. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- More classes where only problem solving is done.»
- More guest lectures if possible. Give more feedback on the TRIZ analysis in the project. »
- Contact person with knowledge about the certain problem for the group-project»
- More time for preparation for the project work. »
- I think it would be better to do two smaller projects than ne large one.»
- Just make sure that all projects are suitable and not too wide for practical TRIZ application.»
- Nothing for my point of view.»
- The strategic side that is mentioned in the beginning of the course could also be examined during the course.»
- Perhaps somehow get people with the same motivation in the same group. It might be impossible in reality, but it would be good.»
- make accountability of the group mates. as many have a tendency to teach .»
- Have a exercise class going through one problem using methods of TRIZ»
- You must include 1-2 study session where we do problems together. »
- the lectures»
- more lecture time»
- the project group and its project should be published earlier»
- More lectures.»

18. Additional comments

- I would appreciate also more examples of real life problem solving using TRIZ.»
- Thank you very much for this subject, it was really interesting and brought a lot of knowledge.»
- Good course»
- more should be added into the course. maybe other problem solving techniques can be taught.»
- According to my opinion, this course does not match with the background of MEI students. This course can be useful for programs such as product development etc but not for MEI. In the first lecture, you talked about Strategy and Tactic, and concluded that this course is about Tactic. MEI programme is about Strategy.»
- more lectures!»
