- ..if it means that lectures are full with different methods and information that require very much in-depth knowledge. I think it would be better to concentrate on the most important things and make them clear. Not to try cover all possible things there are in the universe related to nanotech.» (No, the goals are set too high)

- Hand out the slide in the beginning of the lecture. Than it is much easier to follow the lecture. Maybe change the content and the order in the lectures to follow the new course book better. Now the lechure consist of material from many different places in the book.» (Small extent)
- I participated both lectures and lab exercises. Lab exs were very informative, I liked those, even though it was difficult to hear what was spoken there. Lectures helped a little bit, but they could have been better. There were good lectures and bad lectures. For some of the lectures introduction to the topics was very short or there was none. Slower pace, more explanation and less topics covered in the lectures would help more in learning. » (Large extent)

- The examination was mainly focused on the information provided in the lectures.» (Some extent)
- I have read course books, slides and quizzes. Books were good and helpful. Slides were sometimes full with equations and other un-informative stuff, that nobody explained even in the lectures. There should be more sentences and encapsulations of topics covered. Quizzes were of some help. » (Some extent)

- The homepage in the new studentportalen is very bad, never works. Close it down.» (Very badly)
- Lecture slides were put to web pages often too late regarding submitting quizzes. I missed one lecture because I couldn"t get any information about the class room. I knew that we were supposed to comment on the quizzes, but I had no idea where. And when I did, it was too late. Discussion group seems to be too difficult to follow, since there are over 500 posts. Those should be grouped somehow in advance.» (Rather badly)
- The web page (or I think the studentportal) has not been reachable, this has prevented me from studying quizes at some occations.» (Rather badly)
- could be more organized/standardized in terms of lecture notes. » (Rather badly)
- I think in general the administration of every course is very bad. Also I think that some of the posted questions are not well done in the quiz.» (Rather badly)
- but the new student portal is useless» (Very well)

- There is little lack of involvement with the fellow students, suppose to find the team members for projects. I think may be it"s most common. But It is very good once I found the team and I enjoyed the Team work.» (Rather well)
- There were 3 of us in the group and one of us was a chinese guy, who didn"t understand almost anything in english and he lacked initiative. So we 2 remaining members ended up doing the most of the stuff and it went well.» (Rather well)
- Some people did not respond to questions/suggestions/criticism on the forum - could be mentioned in class before to take part actively.» (Rather well)

- Though I bought the book, I rarely used it, had not time.» (The quizes, The slides)
- Can the lecturer have a look at his one slide and try to find a specific formula or specific information, it is almost impossible. No headlines or structure what so ever.» (The quizes, The book)
- I would like to use book, but there are too limited copy of books in library. I hope it can be more books in library.» (The slides)

- Level of students in master program is really bad. They cannot even make correct questions. More than 1/3 of questions that they made were wrong/poor english.» (Not at all)
- I don"t think letting students doing their own exam questions is good. » (Not at all)
- the student from the curse have a really broad knowledge and i consider they dont know deep enough the subject in order to do good questions» (Not at all)
- It would be good if the all the questions were well prepared and they are not! » (Not at all)
- but before the exam questions need to be corrected by the course lecturer» (Yes to some extent)
- The only positive result of this approach is that one is forced to continiously make an effort to understand and read up on the subjects that are presented in the lectures. However, it is very diffucult to assess what parts of the course are the most important and which matters that should be memorized. » (Yes to some extent)
- There was a lot of unneccesary overlapping in questions. 160 questions could have been reduced to less than 80 if you would have red the questions in advance.» (Yes to some extent)
- Maybe not the best way.» (Yes to some extent)
- If student make quizes, teacher has to spend a lot of time to filter the quizes. Some questions are good, but the majority is not very good. Students study in a way that only to answer the quizes, not in a way to understand knowledge in the course. In my opinion, questions made by teacher is the best.» (Yes to some extent)
- Sometimes questions are not very well made. They are ambiguous or unclear...» (Yes to some extent)
- However, it should be persued more strongly that students discuss an correct wrong answers on the forum more actively.» (Yes to a large extent)
- Students coming up with questions is the best part. Learning level is quite good when doing this» (Yes to a great extent)
- but would need constant viewing from the Instructor of the quizzes and correct them when necessary and making sure they are within the course syllabus. » (Yes to a great extent)

- Each of them is a wonderful resource. I like very much that the Prof. followed a specific book, makes easy to study throughly and quiz questions were very helpful to testify myself.» (?)
- The labs were really good. Learned a lot!» (Fair)
- Oly gets a brief overview is given for most of the subjects discussed in the course and therefore it is sometimes difficult to fully comprehend all the material that is presented. The result is that one focuses on memorizing certain key without fully understanding the underlying physics.» (Adequate)

16. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Take smarter students(entrance exam for this course) if you want students to make quizes.»
- Labs and Poster project»
- The labs sessions»
- should keep making quiz by students»
- lab sessions»
- Most parts of the course should remain, though some revisions would be beneficial. »
- The Teaching Style and pattern.»
- lab sessions»
- Lab exercises. Ulf.»
- quiz»
- slides»
- same pattern»
- »
- The laborations in the cleanroom they are important!»
- quizzes, the system is rather good.»
- Almost all the things what we had should be preserved.»
- the proffesor is really good»
- Course"s materials»
- Quizzes and Lab»

17. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Please take students who can write proper English and can make correct quizes. Otherwise teachers should make quizes»
- Quiz »
- The examination, not let students do their own questions»
- making the lecture more interesting»
- content of slides could be more descriptive instead of a lot of formulations.as many students study from slides they should include more information for those who are not into math or physic»
- The lecture notes could be made clearer, and contain a more explanatory text. Also, there is little point in presenting complex equations if these are not to be used in calculations. Instead, more precise descriptions of the physical processes should be included. Alternatively, one could put more focus on these equations and include some calculation exercises in the course. Finally, some more information should be provided on what is expected from the poster session and how the poster should be constructed.»
- It needs lot of improvement in making the quiz questions by the fellow students. Very clear and strict instructions to be given to make the proper questions. It would be more better, if it makes compulsory providing the comments/explanation for most of the questions they provide for the quiz, in order to avoid the lot of mistakes/junk.»
- Answer system in Quizes»
- Amount of topics covered in the lectures. Slides should be more understandable and readable. Avgust"s attitude.»
- Interaction between students and teacher should be there. Was almost absent in the classes. »
- the reply of the quiz. there are so many wrong quiz. and the correct answers are given so late. and even some of them are suspended. I hope the quiz can be corrected after hand in the quiz.»
- student made quizzes»
- Proper grouping of individuals even in all aspects»
- »
- lecture notes should be organized/standardized next time.»
- Maybe make a little bigger project and reduce the weight of the quizes.»
- Better if we had more laboratory hours.»
- the quizes»
- Don"t include questions that is not correct.»
- Exam. Contents in the exam should not contain largely the quizes made by students»
- Quizzes should be well checked by theteacher before the exam in order to tacke away wrong or not clear quizzes»

18. Additional comments

- No»
- I feel very happy and Thanks to Yurgens and Ulf. »
- »
- How can we challange the quiz exam before we got the result, that makes no sense.»
- in my opinion an oral examination is a really good option since in that way you can really prove your knowledge»
