No, the goals are set too high»2 8%

Genomsnitt: 1.87

- I think this goals are set to low for students from the Z program. It felt more like a repetition then an extention of our prior knowledge. If this had been made clearer in the presentation of the course I would have choosen another course instead.» (No, the goals are set too low)
- I don"t realy know, as I am not quite sure about the goals» (Yes, the goals seem reasonable)

- The second lab was never announced on the webpage. I found out where to sign up for it from people attending another class doing the same lab. Thats really mot the best way!! And Jonas was surprised that not everyone knew about it!» (Very badly)
- worst ever!» (Very badly)
- No feedback» (Rather badly)
- There was some problem with the planing and organization all through the course. A better anouncement of lab2 had been useful. Lab 2 was before lab1 which wasn"t obvious for me, but maybe I just thinks irrational. » (Rather badly)
- The registration for Lab 2 was very fuzzy. could be improved» (Rather badly)
- More news need to be put on the homepage» (Rather badly)
- All recommended exercises should have been stated in the beginning of the course.» (Rather well)

Excellent»1 4%

Genomsnitt: 3.32

- I was dissapointed of the level of the course. It was somewhat uneven, I was expecting a higher level.» (Fair)
- I would have said Good if it had been harder. I understand that the students come from a multitude of backgrounds but either make sure that students have the necessary prerequisites or warn overqualified students that the course will be easy.» (Adequate)
- Too bad the company visit was canceled. It was tuffer for us who had truck/bus to get good data for simulation - ex. gearbox etc» (Adequate)
- I have missed the implementation aspects in the control courses I have taken. This course helped me understand these implementation aspects better!» (Good)
- very good course for a Z-engineer» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- - Both computer labs - Both physical labs - Paper reading »
- The guest lectures. They were good and provided insight to how mechatronics could be applied.»
- Bonus points!»
- Labs»
- The layout and plan of the complete course, exercises and labs were good.»
- laboratory exercises»
- Laboratory session was good»
- The hand-in assignments»
- The problem solving classes.»
- the laboratory sessions»
- the book»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Decrease number of lectures - add another lab/assignment?»
- Make the assistents solve all the problems we are to solve, because I haven"t got a good answer on any of my questions when something was unclear.»
- The level of the course and the information to the students about to select courses.»
- To rewrite again the computer assignment since the way is written sometimes its a little bit unclear and hard to understand.»
- Have the labs a little bit sooner»
- I think that all who working with the course have to know the theori much better. In the end of the course the students almost know it better than the supervisers. But the supervisers were still kind and helpfull in the way they could.»
- The articles were not really adding anything to the course, I thought it was just additional workload.»
- The presentation of specific papers were unnecessary.»
- Registration for Lab 2 should be on the web»
- Demonstrations at the problem sovling sessions!»
- Something can be done about the course workload.»
- the course is perhaps not as much "applied" that the title says... remove some part of the theoritical part in automatics»
- Exercise teachers must be prepared!!!!»

16. Additional comments

- A lot of the lectures were repetition and thus "unnecessary" to me.»
- more response!»
- Sven really tried to make changes to make things suite for everyone - good! Good communication with teacher"s. I liked that other "experts" from each area came and did a guest lecture.»
