- VHDL should either be removed from the course or there should be good supervision for VHDL also. I was sort of lost while doing to first lab I could see no one to get a good answer about my questions.» (Fair)

- more understanding of the language is needed»
- course literature»
- hand in»
- no idea»

- labs and take home exams»
- Guest lectures: there are all very interesting!! some of them covers related research field which are going on in the Department, nice to know.»
- Lab and take home exam are very helpful for understanding the course goals.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Teacher»
- as a fresher regrd this course ,i found some difficulties ..but there could be labs session where TA could help student how to do ..and so forth»
- Teaching staff.»
- Extremely tough take home lava exam, especially for beginners to functional programming who are not used to it.»
- no need of so many guest lectures.»
- lecturer»
- New teacher. Better exam questions. (Question 4.2 was about things that hadn"t been covered, Question 7.2 was more or less "Write the answer to one of the lab questions", without any description etc, this has already been covered in the labs)»
- Maybe we can have a lecture specifically about how to use the Gaisler method in VHDL coding, because that"s been widely used in this course. Or maybe some exercises covers the exercises appeared in the two papers(Hu"s and Seger"s). This could very much help us to understand about the content of the paper better. »
- No»

16. Additional comments

- In case the take home exam, is intended to keep the standards. There has to be sufficient introduction in terms of classes, exercises and labs, for a beginner to learn it. Thank you.»
