- To pass the exam you just needed to look at the previous exams and memorize the answers. It did not measure if you had understood the contents or not.» (To some extent)
- But the mid-term exam was too concentrated on microwave tomography. (we had 2-3 lectures about it). And the other topics had some errors in the questions.» (I don"t know/have not been examined yet)

- Hoi-Shun is difficult to understand. He"s english is hard to follow. But the guest lectures have been excellent!» (Small extent)
- Antony had good slides but it was really hard to hear what he was saying.» (Small extent)
- The relatively large number of lectures was very helpful in keeping my interest in the subject and in avoiding studying the material only at the end of the course. The guest lecturers were easy to understand and useful in helping me learn their content. The lectures by Anthony and Andreas were good, but I found there were too few exercises based on them, the amount of theory was not reasonable to comprehend and remember without some practical application. Without practical application presenting the theory seems unneccessary.» (Some extent)
- To many guest lectures, not enough lectures about the course material.» (Some extent)

- I have also used resource from the internet and from other books.» (Some extent)
- Not the slides. Too muchinformation and too little explanation. Only useful if you have them before the lecture, attend it and add your own comments » (Some extent)
- The course book is a really good one. I had read a few chapters from it before the course also.» (Large extent)
- I really like the course book. » (Large extent)

- The lab is hard to do in groups of four when you don"t know the others. Smaller groups would have made it easier.» (Rather well)

- It was adequate in general, but the last lab work about Microwave Tomography has been a little difficult for all... It seems to me that no one really understands the questions. And when I asked the supervisor, then the answers were also difficult. But at least Andreas tried to explain what he wants us to do...» (High)
- more than 20 hours were spent on the sencond lab, but i do not think i learn much.» (Too high)
- Extreme workoad for the labs! Especially the last one. Did not have time to study the rest of the course material.» (Too high)

- It was ok but many parts were repetition and the MT lab was a joke. 90 % of the time I spent on making the lab didn"t give me any valuable knowledge. The program wasn"t working as it should and we had to run it many times which was very timeconsuming. » (Fair)
- Interesting subject but hard to get a grip of the level, problems with understanding the accent of the main lecturer and extremely time consuming last lab that did not give much knowledge.» (Fair)
- The guest lectures were excellent! Other lectures were difficult to follow and not so good... And the Microwave Tomography lab has been a big subject for a headache.» (Adequate)
- I would have liked more practical exercises as I personally learn much better by doing than by simply listening. Courses where there was an exercise or hand-in every week have been very helpful to me and are the ones that I remember the most from. I had big problems with the Microwave Tomography lab, however. I spent a very large amount of time just running the program and tabulating data, in fact so much time that I was discouraged from/forgot to use the lecture material as a basis for analyzing the results. Despite the time and effort I expended on the lab, I feel that what I handed in was simply a set of data. The lab did not help me grasp the related concepts, and I am likely one of the students who has a high chance of understanding the EM-field theory, having taken Mikael Perssons EM-field theory course in my undergraduate studies. The amount of time that would have been needed to produce the data needed for an adequate analysis and draw conclusions about MW-tomography would have been unrealistic (in my opinion). The CT-exercise was in contrast very helpful in my learning the concept. Perhaps more lecture time at a slower pace on MW-Tomography theory would be helpful?» (Good)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Guest lectures!»
- gust lectures»
- Guest lectures. They help to get a view of what we can do later and are more praxis orientated.»
- The guest lectures was good although siemens repeated their lecture from the biomedical instrumentation course which also is mandatory i the master program...»
- The structure of the final exam was very good, with a combination of different forms of knowledge. It was too easy to study from old exams, however. My success on the final exam was likely disproportionate to the amount of time I spent studying because I studied strategically from the old exams.»
- The course book, guest lectures.»
- Guest lectures»
- the content was ok, and should be kept this way»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Mid term exam. Please let someone who is really good in english (or a native speaker) read the questions and correct them so that you can understand them only in one way!»
- the second lab!! it seems like we spend lots of time to process the data and wait for the result, but don"t really understand the basic principles about how does it work. moreover, it"s really too close to the exam week. it is hard to believe that we have to spend more than 20 hours on this just before our exams.»
- The slides from the teachers, especially Microwave tomography»
- Change the MT lab so that the focus is on understanding the algorithm instead of making the program work...»
- The MW-Lab architecture. This is an interesting subject but the approach to the teaching should maybe be less theoretical and more general, or alterantely should span a greater amount of lectures and include some calculation exercises or something.»
- The last lab (MT)! I didn´,t learn anything from it, just put a whole lot of work into it and got really stressed. Have never worked so hard and gained so little knowledge. Frustrating.»
- In my opinion the course includes too many topics which they have vast area to learn.It would be better to dearease the subjects but learning become more in depth.»
- the labs were really time consuming and blind work , it was just too much to do without that much ouput to learning level, and it was too many lectures, slides and things to be covered for the exam.»

16. Additional comments

- The microwave tomography exercise should be better explained. I"m afraid that too many people had too much problems with it... I would not recommend this course to a friend just because of that microwave tomography lab...»
- It feels like a large amount of effort was put into making this course. I feel that the subject matter is critical to my goals in this program and I appreciate the weight of this course. Thank You!»
- The course was helpful, but it was too much to learn/do for that short time, so i guess if the load was decreased the quality of learning would be much much better»
