- More cred for the project.» (To some extent)

- Should be on the portal at least 1 day before the lecture if you want to read it through earlier. » (Rather badly)
- Course PM and reading instructions could maybe be merged to a more thorough study guide (the way the instructions are split today with reading instructions both in PM and "reading instructions" and the material both in the binder and slides makes studing a extensive papper work taking time from the "real" studying)» (Rather well)
- The handouts was always late - 1700 the day before is too late.» (Rather well)

- Group assignment is in my opinion a way of holding back hard working students and a way of making sure students with less (or poor) background knowledge passes the course. This is of course not very good if you feel that the group is limiting your own chances of making a good report/work.» (Rather well)

- lab time is too short to help us get familiar with the tech» (To a small extent)
- Lab 3 (MQL) had a bad system for the report. There were only general questions (describe the plots) and a huge group to organise (10 or 11 people), this is not a good combination as some will do nothing and others everything.» (To some extent)
- Good labs!» (To quite large extent)
- The labs were interesting, and I like the idea with just short conlusion-reports after each lab, it shows you have understood, but does not take very much time.» (To quite large extent)
- I find the MQL lab rather poor, I think that lab must develop a bit to next year. Now we just stood there and looked at the software, we could almost have gotten a table with the results and skip the lab.» (To quite large extent)
- Really interesting (we can see in practice how it looks like and how it works). Good that"s we"re in small groups» (To great extent)
- Learning by doing.» (To great extent)
- Great labs, gives good understanding and the focus on learning and not report writing were good. The best thing should be to have one lab for each production method, if that was possible.» (To great extent)

- no»
- Labs were great for increased understanding»
- assignment»

20. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- no»

- A proper course litterature, illustrative book would be an advantage.»
- Definitely the MQL lab, involve the students more in the lab.»
- Lab report in MQL.»

- Maybe a company visit.»
- A company visit should be fun and maybe more labs.»

21. Additional comments

- Consider making the course span a smaller area, this will in my opinion make it more interesting.»
- no»
- Varun, the lab assistant for "cutting fluids"-lab should have a theory walk through FURTHER away from the CNC-machine. All the noise there made it difficult to listen. Varun was good at explaining though, no remarks there :)»
- Including some visits to companies would be nice»
- One of the indian teachers were hard to understand.»
- handouts earlier please.»
