- The way the material at class was presented was not great. Im thinking about old, high contrast overheads. Not the easiest to read or understand. Ronny was still really good, his great experience and knowledge made the lectures interesting. » (Some extent)
- The probebalistic part could have been better...» (Large extent)

- The course literature was rather terrible, I regret buying it. Fartygs stabilitet by Mikael Huss saved me but sadly it won"t help non Swedish speaking students.» (Small extent)
- Very hard to get a grip of a book without index. Hard to find the important information and alot of hours where spent just looking for it.» (Small extent)
- It would be better to have an actual book instead of the Compendium which is unclear and not too structured. The OH printouts is a disaster.» (Small extent)
- The book could have been better» (Some extent)
- This was by far the weakest aspect of the course. The compendium was not well put together and did not allow the lecturs to follow nicely. The lecture notes were not clear at all and was difficult to attain info from them without having been to the lectures» (Some extent)
- Could have been better descriptions in the course handouts.» (Some extent)
- köpte ytterliggare en bok "fartygsstabilitet" av Mikael Huss utöver kurskompendiet. Den boken var bättre än kurskompendiet.» (Large extent)
- I do belive that the literature can be improved.» (Large extent)
- It was not always covering what was in the lectures. The lecture notes could be more clear. » (Large extent)

- The solutions to the problems were really hard to read. The handwriting was bad and really really tiny. And since the image quality was rather low zooming didn"t help. Please spend some more time writing readable and less time using a ruler to make squares around everything. If writing the solutions digitally is to much to ask for, please at least use white line paper. Scans and copies look a lot better with white line paper. The solutions contained a few too many errors. Not acceptable for next year.» (Very badly)
- The correct answers to the home problems was not good at all. Really hard to read since it was shrinked scanned pictures that already without scaling had small handwriting. This made them really hard to follow. Some questions was not even answered correctly. The rest was OK» (Rather badly)
- Not ok to get handouts after lectures, they should be distributed in advance» (Rather badly)
- Det hade varit bra om vi fått föreläsningsanteckningarna dag ett.» (Rather badly)
- There were some errors in the tutorial solutions» (Rather well)
- It would have been nice to have a typed up version of the lecture notes, instead of photocopies after the lecture had already happened. Or maybe if the lecture slides followed more closely with the compendium. It seems like there was some unnecessary effort required to follow the lecture while matching it to the same information in the compendium.» (Rather well)

- Since I was not able to come Sweden in time, I had to spent 1st 2-3 weeks with some other works so I could not manage study and classes during that time. Which actually increased my workload at the end.» (Adequate)

- it will be absolutely perfect if the lecturers could give more time to more important topics ,instead of going through everything equally. perhaps some less important or preliminary knowledges can be assigned as reading task before lecture. » (Good)
- Jag valde att läsa kursen för att jag hoppades att den skulle ge mig en god allmänbildning om fartygskonstruktion. Den överträffade mina förväntningar.» (Excellent)

16. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- design assignments.»
- Most of the coarse was good and interesting. »
- Teachers»
- All the teachers. They rally made the course. The different parts, design class, tutorials, lectures was a good setup.»
- I believe that the tutorials were very good, and it was good to learn AutoShip.»
- The Probabilistic approach.»
- Design Class without the probibalistic calc. at the end.»
- Den fantastiska kunskap som lärare med erfarenhet från verkligheten kan ge.»
- The layout with theory lectures mixed with tutorials. »

17. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The corrections to the toturioals should be easier to read and to understand. I think that the probability part was difficult. I would appretiate some theoretical tutorials on that. »
- Course Materials»
- The problem solutions. Make them readable and correct errors. Also try to find a substitute for the course literature.»
- The lecture notes should really be rewritten in some real way, prefferably computer written. Less overhead during class. The corrected answers for home problems should also be redone in readable format.»
- Course litterature should be changed, Handouts to be given before lectures. The probabilistic assignment should be dropped or changed completely. It didnt give anything to sit and fill out an excelsheet with numbers..»
- the solutions at the web page are sometimes bad to read»
- The probebalistic part»
- The compendium should be redone with a view for it to follow the lectures better with more indepth explanations about the fundamentals.»
- The probabilistic stability assignment seemed to be not very useful to help in the learning.»
- The tutorials.»
- bättre kompendium. bättre undervisning om "probibalistic approach to rules", inte bara tala illa om det.»
- The probibalistic calc! »
- The handwritten handouts»
- I think bad handwritten course material gives a non-serious impression.»
- The overhead slides of the lecture notes could be renewed. They are not always very clear. »

18. Additional comments

- my total impression of the course was still good. Nice introduction to the naval architecture»
- Would be nice to have a guest lecturer that are pro-probabilistic to get a more balanced perspective of the issue. As it is now it is a very biased opinion that are given.»
- N/A»
- I"m happy with the course!»
- Lec: The topics on "Submarine Hydrostatics and Submarine Stability" should be included. Hydrostatics of other marine structures (other than ships) should be included. Intro to salvage engineering should be included. Tutorials: The solutions to the tutorial problems should be posted after the class. HW problems should be assigned at the end of each tutorial. HW problems should be collected and graded. Lab: Hydrostatic Analysis project should be included. The analysis report based on computer generated printouts should be turned in and the design work should be presented in class. The lab work should be graded and counted. »
