Genomsnitt: 4.18

- The scope of the project was good but there was many students involved probably one team would be enough to do all the work and probably get a licence.» (Adequate)
- A very good course for gaining experimental experience.» (Good)
- I didn"t get what I expected from the course but I get something that I think will be useful enough » (Good)
- The goals should be somewhat clearer. » (Good)
- It was nice to get hands on experience.» (Excellent)
- This was my 1st exposure to a research work. I think it was excellent. Everything seemed perfect to me.» (Excellent)

20. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The focus on actual lab work.»
- The project based should be absolutely preserved, and the idea of seeing the supervisors before the period starts was great which save a lot of time.»
- Grouping the student to work under an appropriate research group.»
- same things»
- The diversity of projects, although I know it depends more upon the supervisors offering them.»
- the course itself»
- keep it up !!»

21. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Maybe not in the course, but our group should have more frequent meetings. Maybe the supervisors should make sure that they are frequent?»
- There should not be more than 2 groups working under 1 supervisor.»
- Each supervisor must hold only 1 group. The supervisors should explain the exact purpose of the project and if it is possible should give a brief presentation during the introductory session. The students should be motivated to look for their own projects of interest, in order to do so, a list of the different researchers with their main topics could be provided and the student should be able to go to talk to the researcher. Topics in fabrication should include physics, electronics, chemistry and biology in which the nanofabrication is relevant.»
- there"s should be a limit to the number of students per supervisor, and maybe more responsability in the hands of the students. »
- More topics for choice»

22. Additional comments

- The course as a whole was very good.»
- Very good course. I have learned a lot.»
- This coure can be joined with the industry. I mean some topics and projects should be provided by some companies. So that students can see real life application of the research.»
- only one supervisor per group should be allowed.»
- If it"s hard to find supervisors, maybe a substitue course could be instituted, where less teachers/supervisors are needed, there is a common project and a minimum number of instruments to learn how to use. groups of students make each a set of measurements, or a part of the project or something like that... But no matter what the course should be preserved for next year.»
- This general course format evaluation (especially regarding the first questions) is not suited for the particular Modeling and Fabrication course, »
