- It is possible to pass the course doing very little job since it has been poor monitored group projects mostly. Just let the other students do your work. The difficulties with giving a re-examination shouldn"t be a reason to let all students pass the course! What become the quality then?» (No, the goals are set too low)

- Extremely bad. I"ve never had a course with such a terrible administration before. Very embarrassing for us students since part of the course is given in collaboration with the industry. As a student you"ve struggled with your studies in several years and then a course like this make you look like a fool for an important possible future employer. The fact that the course will probably last until March when it should be ended in December prove this statement very well according to me.» (Very badly)
- course administration has been catastrofal. Bad planing, bad information and "say one thing do the other" is the reason why the course have been delayd.» (Very badly)

- Hasn"t worked well at all. Very crucial since we had to work in the same groups in almost four study periods. How can I get a fair grade when my performance depends totally on the other four students inmy group?! Also, very poor knowledge in English and writing technical reports among some students. I don"t want to spend several hours correcting terrible English and checking for plagiarism. Approx. 50% of the time writing the reports has been spent on this. And I don"t get anything useful knowledge out of that!» (Very poorly)
- There have been two groups throughout the course, one with good cooperation and one with bad. Luckily I have belonged to the well functioning group.» (Rather well)

- Project 2 in the course could have been finished within three or four weeks with a good administration. Intead, it lasted for around 16 weeks! And this was afterwards blamed on the students. During the project, the delay was no problem for the examiner. Simultaneously, when project 3 started it was expected that we shouldn"t do anything else, not even our second compulsory course.» (Too low)

- THIS COMMENT HAS BEEN REMOVED. Reformulated content: better leadership and friendlier treatment of the students was requested.» (Poor) (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Nothing. Erase this course.»
- Nothing.»
- The company projects»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The deadline of the projects should be clearify and fixed. The time for the part 3 should be longer and full time.»
- schedule, the course is last for 3 quarter. it really delay my plan. »
- Everything.»
- The course administration.»
- This course should be re-orginized. It was quite ironic to have many course organization problems in the course where we students were supposed to learn about project organization. We never had a course syllabus with including critical due dates. Consequently the course runover the time. For that kind of project courses, setting the due dates and making a time plan is vital from my point of view. »
- THIS COMMENT HAS BEEN REMOVED. Reformulated content: suggest a different teacher next year.» (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)

16. Additional comments

- the industrial study is not a good idea to run the course this way. »
- The small project 1 was pretty good. The quality demands on project 2 were extremely low. Then, in project 3, the companies had very high demands. As everyone understand, this became a large problem since we worked in groups. Its much harder to change a group"s performance than an individual"s.»
- There have, continiously, been many complains about how this course has been handled. I agree with them all! You talk about "ensure quality", to do that I suggest that you realy listen to the upset students and do som mayor changes.» (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)
