- The project work should have contributed to the final grade aswell, as alot of energy was put into this part of the course. I think it is also important to receive grade for this part as we are doing the project for a company. If it is possible to receive higher grades people might put more energy into the project which will also make the company satisfied with the results.» (To some extent)
- The exam was a too little part of the course» (To some extent)

- There was no teaching.» (?)
- I missed lectures carried by the teacher, » (Small extent)
- There was not really a teaching actually. Most of the lectures have been made by ... the students! The lectures were the results of laborations to be precise. The concept in itself is not bad but it should have never been the main part of the teaching. We students tried to teach something to the other students. The profesor itself did not really bring that much value, which is quite surprizing.» (Small extent)

- Linked to the previous comment, sure we had material to prepare the laborations but we did not have real lectures slides made by the teacher. So, how to really learn something? Have we really learnt something? Guess.» (Small extent)
- I did not feel motivated and did not put any effort in reading the material in detail after a while. In-depth studies first occured during the compnay project.» (Some extent)

- The web page is a mess! Hard to find the wanted information and know what has been updated. Annoying to use as well. Fang is terrible at answering emails. She needs to get a separate email account for the course.» (Very badly)
- The Course webpage should be more structured to find parts, just by adding tabs at the top or similar solutions. It was also hard to see updates.» (Rather badly)
- Bad update. Website is a bit messy, difficult to find things.» (Rather badly)

- I would like to have some introduction about the literature which is recomended to answer questions, e.g. magasines, books, ebooks accounts that are worth to create. Many articles I found on google have to be charged and are not available for reading unless you buy them. Since big part of the course was about searching for articles I would like to have some information about where to look for this sources, library, Books24x7 ebooks account etc. » (Rather good)

- Too much time put on creating the questions each week. Not rewarding and boring.» (High)
- Too much things to do, read every week, prepare questions, prepare presentation, project work (which started rather late) and examination.» (Too high)
- The project was a G/U-momentum which just added stress. If it would have been a graded momentum, one would have been more motivated to do it well.» (Too high)

- The company project is really awesome, but in general it is by far the worst course I have taken at Chalmers.» (Poor)
- Even if the last days were quite loaded (home exam + project), the workload was really ok. BUT, I (and I am not the only one I can assure you) have been so disappointed by the fact that finally the students have made the lectures by themselves. I may be rude when saying the teacher did almost nothing. The lectures made by studens have not been checked, I mean that the answers we gave to the questions asked by all the students may have been good most of the time but there was no real summary done by the teacher at the end of each "lecture" (if we can call that a lecture). Fortunately, the teacher did some lectures by her own (the first one and 1-2 others ... over 12 or so!). To finish on a positive aspect, the few which was possible to learn is really interesting, I do not regret that.» (Fair)
- Very interesting course. » (Good)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The project work which should be graded. Good that Fang picked out some of the questions that could be used as exam questions, however, could have been published sooner for those who wanted to start early.»
- The project with a company, that was very valuable and a good idea! Answering questions by groups, but I would like more comments and feedback from the teacher about students" answers. Guests from companies who carried lectures, that was interesting and should be preserved.»
- The project is interesting. »
- The content in itself is really good. The project with a company is an excellent idea, great way to apply what we learned and have a contact with the business reality.»
- student presentation»
- Literature diversity, lectures from companies, company project.»
- The project - one learnt how it really works at a company. »
- The company project.»
- More lectures by teacher.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The three questions that had to be submitted at each lab. Some of the presentations were just plain boring and did not give much at all. Reading the literature afterwards, when looking at the exam questions, I did not realize I had even heard the questions before. Hopefully these presentations could be done in a better more insightful way. »
- Asking questions by students- hard to ask reasonable questions within an area we just read one paper about, asking questions was a bit boring too. Maybe some kind of group discussions instead because even if we were supposed to prepare questions in groups we did it individually and there were no discussions at all within groups. I didn"t like to get negative feedback on my question I prepared in front of whole the class, I didn"t like preparing questions. What are charecteristics of a good question,I never understood it. »
- Not as much to read and don"t let the students held so many lectures. Some are really bad to do presentation, it ends with people can"t learn anything.»
- The way to teach, terrible! It is unbelievable a teacher does almost nothing and let the students doing the lectures (around 3/4 of them). Why? Because the teacher should teach us, the students should learn from the teacher. Am I wrong? Moreover, what we "teached" to the other students has never been officially corrected and resumed in a written way. Believe me, I did not learn as much things as I would have with a more classical way to teach.»
- less paper to read maybe»
- This course comes too late in the year... It should be in the beginning of the year or at the end of the first year in order for us to digest the approach, and try to use that in the projects. »
- The labs»
- The way of teaching. Fang should present the different themes and give us questions to answer. As it was not no one put any effort in creating good questions or making good presentations. No one cared.»
- Less focus on student present presentation. Another thing that is unnecessary is that all need to listen when reading up questions to the presenting group. Better to just send in the document.»
- The teacher can tell students more about her industrial experiences. We believed that students are are glad to know that. Anyway, we can feel the teacher put a lot of effort in teaching this course.»

16. Additional comments

- Good course - too much workload»
- A course with much potential that failed miserabely. The company project should be graded and be the main task.»
