- No»
- More signalprocessing»
- More signal processing.»
- yeah. More detailed and advanced courses in the field of structural dynamics, wave propagation, radiation, modal analysis for the group of Vibroacoustics.»
- A introduction course of digital signal processing will help student while doing the Matlab programming. Perhaps the sound and vibration course can include a course called " Applied Signal Processing" as a mandatory course, which usually takes place at study period 2.»

- Is a good option but is difficult to decide what course to choos,even though there is a huge list of courses and description,it would be good to have a core or suggested options depending on the field everyone want to focus on the future:vibration, room acoustics,environmental noise,building,psicoacoustics,etc.» (OK)

- I miss an internship in a Swedish company» (Small extent)
- I would like to have more interaction with the "real life", some field trips for instance» (Large extent)
- i attended to 90% of the seminars offered during this year and they were very interesting even though many concepts were totally unknown by the time. I think more study visit would be good, we only had one site survey to the Goteborg Opera, i would like to visit a lab for testing materials,a real contruction under process and look at the planning criteria, etc » (Large extent)

- Vill lära mig akustik, inte engelska. Dock är det extremt trevligt med en internationell miljö vilket förutsätter engelska. Det är både bra och dåligt. Jättebra att man kan fylla i på svenska när språkkunskapen brister... typ sent på natten..» (Bad)
- some times i get the impression that the teachers could use some english practise.» (OK)
- It allows to expand my English skills but also sometimes is more complicated when very theoretical issues come or when reading scientific explanation with abstract contents.» (Good)

27. What should definitely be preserved in your master"s programme?

- Allt. Möjligen skulle ATA inte vara obligatorisk, enbart obligatorisk för de som inte läst ISV.»
- The activities in groups,the labs,the lab reports,the feed back and their corrections with valuable comments,the seminars, the guest lectures»
- - atmosphere in the Department - laboratories - relationships between students & teachers »
- The Sound and Vibration Measurements Course is very good, but need a lot of work»
- The courses»
- I believe nearly everything in the department is good and I was very satisfied with the programme.»
- The close connection to the teachers »
- The labwork. The croissants. »
- The main framework is very good. »
- The courses including Sound and Vibration, TA1, Room Acoustics (using current course structure), Active Noise Control.»

28. What should definitely be changed in your master"s programme?

- Kanske fler kurser? Man vill kanske läsa en TA3 eller ytterligare fördjupning i rumsakustik istället för de kurser som finns. Valfrihet är bra. Kanske en kurs mer inriktad mot fordonsakustik?»
- - Better ventilation in the lecture hall»
- i dont have at the moment something i want to change»
- - modernize the website, update it more often - use other rooms for lectures instead of the usual one which doesn"t have any window - shorter breaks (~10min)»
- Three courses the same time every study period, makes it difficult to concentrate on the study.»
- its good as it is»
- Could not think of anything that was so annoying or irrelevant. »
- I"d like more of a fundamental rigorous mathematical treatment of acoustics. The master program doesn"t cover much of the contents in a standard textbook in acoustics like e.g. http://www.amazon.com/Fundamentals-Physical-Acoustics-David-Blackstock/dp/0471319791/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1243192062&sr=8-1 . Maybe some or all of the IPC-course can give room to this. I also think that the TA1/2 courses could handle the basic mathematics a bit better/broader, and all the report-writing in the TA2 course gave much work for much less learning. It could contain a lot more.»
- Adding more advanced courses. Less attention to reports and more practical works(labworks). »
- The courses including Building Acoustics, Human Response to Sound and Vibration.»
