- It was sometimes hard to understand the lectures and why the teacher was talking about something. It is good to give a background and a reason for a long mathematical deriving. Sometimes I read the lecture notes before the lecture and then I could understand better, but almost always the lecture notes were not handed out until after the lecture.» (Some extent)

- It should be clear from the beginning of the course which assignments and labs one has to do in the course. We always got to know only one week ahead when we were suppose to do a project or a lab and that makes it very hard to plan the time together with another course.» (Rather badly)

- A lot of errors were made during lectures. I dont know if this was on purpose or not, but it really was an irration. The course would have given me a lot more if I could trust what was said during lectures. I know that we are supposed to question everything and I always do, but what was questioned in this course, by the student, wasn"t quite what was expected. The question should not be "is this correct?" but rather, "why is it this way?" or "can it be done in some other way?"... I see the point in finding errors, but there were to many of them. » (Poor)
- It the beginning of the course I found it hard to see what the course was really about, but it got better every week and at the end I really enjoyed the lectures.» (Good)
- It is a shame that I had to give up this course. I can only recommend it to everybody. » (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Doing an experiment really helps understanding some of the (rather complicated)theory»
- The project was really good and it gave me a lot of understanding.»
- exercises exam format»
- The experiment. But maybe it should be more clear what you have to do for the report. »
- bill»
- The project (jet, wake, plume), but they will need more time.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- A better organization of the homework: clearer instructions and not everything in the last 2 weeks but evenly distributed over the course»
- The project should be given a couple of weeks earlier since there were a few points that could be made realively early in the course.»
- may be there should be a bit more exercises and tutorials, practical tasks»
- Ask students to submit the experiment report individually, not as a group.»
- More information »
- Give a clear course description and tell which assignments that are included in the course. Then people are probably more secure in the beginning.»

16. Additional comments

- Every single lecture was excellent and inspiring. Thanks a lot!!»
- Bill is an impressive lecturer, but a better structure during lectures is required for this course to be good. Please tell the students what the lecture is going to contain before start and what the goal is and its pupose. There were quite a lot of errors in the lecture notes, but I guess you know that...»
