- The good will from Ali and Behrooz to help»
- need some more exercise hours for practice. »
- The course content»

16. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- the tutorial teacher must be changed. there must be grades for the projects. the professor must improve his knowledge to large extent»
- The lecture topics, could be introduced with more basic concepts for better understanding»
- The pace of the tutorial lectures could be faster.»
- it should contain more theory of the book»
- Make the projects more reasonable dependeing on the time. It would be good to have grades for the projects since without there is so little motivation on group members to do the projects.»
- The depth and breadth of coverage of the content needs to be revised. The content was just touching many fields and that too not in a way that can help us gain understanding to do some research.»
- The instructions for project one could have been clearer. E.g. in the Huffman coding, what the Matlab program was supposed to do and what we could input manually, (the probabilities for example). Project two should have been released earlier so that we could have planned the time better.»
- Course should be less wide and more deep.People should have more time for project 2»
- Though Exercise sessions are good, the TA should be more active and interactive during the session. »
- Lecturer. I think the lecture has not his specialization in this area, he knowz little about the subject. He just reads out slides during lecture and that aint much helpful, you have study the whole concept on your own which makes workload quite high.»
