8. What did you think about the exercises/assignments/lab?


- not enough exercises and not enough time for dismantling.»
- The engine dismantling could be held this way. A whole dedicated for a team and the engine should be completely disassembled to each small part. Then the teams switch between the engines and then assemble it back again. This would help people to get a better and a more clear view. (JUST A SUGGESTION)»
- More practical sessions like the dismantling session can be organized to enhance learning.»
- In other to put the theory in practice,other laboratory could done to analyze parameters like spark ignition time,fuel ratio and emissions.»
- There schould have been more problem exercises. One instructur on the dismantling-lab had very little knowledge about the engine itself and repeatedly gave the wrong term for different parts. Assignment 1 Could have been a good one if we only had some more knowledge about the concept before we started the assignment. assignment 2 was good for better understanding of the powertrain but there was no need to be so anal with the reports.»

- the 2 assingments are rather good for a better understanding of ICE»
- All»
- Assignmets, Midterm, The concepts final exam, Sven as the principal lecturer.»

17. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Maybe define the requirements for the report before it"s no time to change»
- Shorter delay between hand in and hand out of assignments etc. Recieved all in the exam week.»
- More illustrations, more concrete cases»
- make the assignment 1 to be some practical »
- The level of correction of the second assignment.»
- none»
- Include another laboratory»
- The assignment "pass" conditions: Assignment should be evaluated mostly on results, not on presentation ! To have clear instructions how to write a report.»

18. Additional comments

- the course was very good and also good teaching but i was new here in quarter system so i did not manage and I that is my problem not for all the students»
- This course is really important for this program and hopefully, it will be better. Good luck!!»
- Stop using the phrase "pretty straight forward" because it´,s not. you have to explain what you mean after a phrase like this! I recall a lecture about using gasoline in dieselengines, dis question whas dismissed by sven with a laught. Boy was i surprised when this questing emerged on the exam, together with many other really strange questions!»
