- The lecture Notes, uploaded files on student portal and other materials were good but the text book (Salih) was awful :( » (Some extent)

Course-specific questions:

13. Student Projects- comments and suggestions?

- Good, but to keep it to one page seemed hard for everyone. But it was intresting and I actually read about someone how hade made the lasik surgery and now I really understand how. I think it made the course more "real". I liked it. »
- I think it worked good.»
- Literature search + report and presentation is quite boring.»
- Great»
- it was fair but rather hard to find a nice subject to write about.»
- They give the opportunity to experience speaking in front of an audience (besides studying deeply a favourite topic).»

14. Study Visits - comments and suggestions?

- Good, I really liked to see what lasers were used for in the reality.»
- I would have liked a study visit to the MC2 clean room. But the three visits were good. Especially the last one at Micronic. »
- Very good!»
- Study visits were quite fine, We can have some visits to companies working on communication like Ericson.»
- Saab was not useful. It was mostly a commercial advertisement. The 2 other study visits were usefu and helpful»
- Those were great and very rewarding»

- The Labs were also very good» (Good)
- Maybe we could have learned some more» (Good)

16. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Study visits and projects, to make the course more real and closer to the reality. »
- Study visits. »
- The home assignments. »
- Study visits,Labs»
- The lecture notes in a revised version and sheila»
- Laboratory experiences»

17. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- No comment. »
- A bit clearer tutorial sessions would be nice. »
- Please write more on the board, use less overhead slides! Viewgraphs with both Swedish and English text on are very messy and difficult to follow.»
- MORE problems for students to solve on their own»
- a bit the lecture notes (see n.7)»

18. Additional comments

- Thanks for a good course!»
- Would be good to have some more laser-problems available to solve on your own.»
- 1. The final exam was too tough. 2. I think a part of the grades (scores) should be for Lab sessions. 3. Having Bonus points for home assignments will be much more encouraging. Finally, Thanks Shiela for a good course that we had. And thanks Carl, Göran and Petter. Also the guys in Micronic company were great.»
- Thanks for a good course»
