- The old exams we had handed out was not very representative for an exam with 40/60 calculations/theory. The exam we had was valid for the course but not according to expectations looking at previous exams. Otherwise old exams or a set of questions are very good for learning the course.» (Yes, I think so)

Summarizing questions

13. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The parts that athe course is divided in are good. It is easy to see which parts that you need to study more or less on. I think the problems where goog, and I like that the problems had influenced the examquestions so that if you had done áll problems, you could gain some point on the exam.»
- diary»
- The project»
- The very good lectures and the very good compendium. Also the lab was very useful»
- The part about nanocomposites was interesting and also the laboration»
- The lab and the diary was a fun part and I like it when I learn during time. Showing of practical things was good.»

14. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- I would like to have more explanation about the coupling effects. If it is possible a studyvisit would be great since composites are a material that I haven"t been in contact with before. I both like and disslike that you need to have 20% on each part to pass the exam. It shows that you have studied every part, but at the same time you can have nailed one part, but don"t get passed. I also think that each part should have the same amount of points and include both theoretical and calculation problems. »
- more topic available to choose from»
- More lectures on nanocomposite will be appreciated.»
- the compendium... A printed version with no mistakes would be great!»
- Maybe som kind of variation in the course, I think Rodney is a good lecturer, but it would still be nice with some kind of change from time to time, like in MMCs, maybe some more guest lecturers or a study-visit somewhere.»
- A little more information about the diary. Did not understand how to do it from the beginning. Could be nice to hear 5 min from each group what they have come up to.»

- I think the parts covers much information and are reosanable. The D part could have more lecture time, and less on the B part, since that information is qiute easy to study in by your self. » (reasonable)
- But I would like some more topics on "breaking edge technology" and applications and maybe could this performance chapter be just somewhat shorter and at the same time it might be easier to grasp.» (reasonable)
