Goals and goal fulfilment

No, the goals are set too high»0 0%

Genomsnitt: 1.85

No, not at all»0 0%
To some extent»6 40%
Yes, definitely»7 46%
I don"t know/have not been examined yet»2 13%

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The labs»
- The project»
- Computer assignments»
- the bonuses from the hand-ins. »
- Thomas Nygårds and the other teachers»
- The project»
- The labs and computer exercises were very good, they gave much understanding of different phenomena and it was easy to follow the whole process of vibration control.»
- The projects and the experiment»
- Maybee the project. »

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The lectures, more figures and text on the black board and less formulas.»
- Add more content to the course»
- More aplications on lectures. »
- The theory of the exercise problems could be more elaborate.»
- ...»
- Better planning of the course as whole. Course PM shall not be changed during the course. Better structure in the litterature (explain concepts, write with font with serifs since it makes it easier to read) Better preparation for exam with coordination between solving sessions and examples in litterature More difficult exam»
- The lectures needs much improving in structure. It was very hard to follow the reasoning. More written explanations on the black board should be added since not all people (including me) learn by listening to the lecturer. The lecture notes were also quite hard to follow. I think I learned the most from the formula sheet which contained concise explanations on using the theory. Lecture notes should contain more applications of the theories, especially for active control and variational calculus which doesnt contain any relevant examples at all. Maybe some exercise about these topics should be added? »
- Make a more clear statement of the Paper Review Project and involve the assistants in that.»
- The course litterature should definitely be changed. »

16. Additional comments

- The course could be improved if a higher level was set. Considering a background from mechanical engineering almost nothing new was introduced in the course.»
- Thank you for the fantastic course ,)»
- Thanks for a good grade!»
