Adequate»2 25%
Good»5 62%

Genomsnitt: 3.37

- Worst course ever. learning by doing taken to far.» (Poor)
- The course itself is good, it in the context of the collaboration with the parallel course by Kjell and heavy time required by labs which drags it down.» (Adequate)

20. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- all the interface experiments»
- The guest lecture, I found it very interesting.»
- the way in which labs were assigned, I mean the lab"s possitions»
- The optional home exam»
- VHDL LABS, Lec series, guest lec»

21. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- grading of the labs, at least I think one should be able of getting a 4 by doing a real good solution on the labs.»
- Give Sven"s job to someone who wants it.»
- lab - 1 and 2 has to be removed.»
- The lab workload, it was really a lot, difficult to keep time for the other class.»
- lab workload is high for the first study period for an international student»
- Try to streamline the lab work more, so that it isn"t this isolated major part of the course which has really nothing to do with lectures and exam.»
- dont know»

22. Additional comments

- I think it"s a good idea to have two lab groups in two different days.»
- I really think the collaboration between this course and the course with Kjell is a bad and unproductive idea. It causes focus to break and tries to cover too much ground between them. Promoting theory and needed hands-on to the degree these two courses do at the same time is stressful to say the least.»
