- Sometimes it is confusing, may be it would be better to point something with an example» (Some extent)
- The project excercises were good» (Some extent)
- Im not very good at focusing at classes only based on power point presentations, its much more efficient for me when the teacher uses the black board to form his presentations. That makes it more understandable and interesting and also keeps my focus!» (Some extent)
- Really good way to concentrate all lectures (and examinations)towards the exercises. It is clear what to know and good guidence to learn is given.» (Large extent)

- I think we sooner should have gotten the pages missing in the "pärm" och i ett häfte satt bladen ihophäftade huller om buller. Lite slarvigt...» (Large extent)
- The calculations are poorly described in the examples. The literature could be more up to date» (Large extent)

- Unneccesary to go to Renova to do those calculations. It was quite easy for those with chemical engineering background and the tour in the plant did not give that much» (Waste of time)

- Did not cooperate with someone special during the project excercises which was partly my fault. Not something I"d recomend.» (Very good)

- The course was rather easy for us with chemical engineering background» (Low)

- Previously, I had learned a little things about pinch technology.Here, I am pleased to have opportunity to get into detail about industrial energy.For me, exercise projects were successful to enhance understanding of the course material.However, more we know makes we know if our know is nothing. » (Good)
- This wasn a good course with intresting objectives!» (Good)
- interesting» (Good)
- Interesting course!» (Good)
- Very good with all projects, and the effort from the staff by correcting them in time. That was a great help for the exam!» (Good)
- Definetly intresting and concrete.» (Good)
- Interesting.» (Good)
- It could have been a bit harder though» (Good)
- some of the lectures are slow and a bit time wasting. The excercises are excellent! it is very good that you all the time has to work with what we are laerning during the course. the exam questions could have been announced earlier to get a better chance of practicing...» (Good)
- I liked how the material you learned in the course was connected to the reality.» (Excellent)
- It is a great course with a very intresting content. I will recommend other students to choose this course next year. The course material is good.» (Excellent)

25. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- the exercises, but please make it possible to start calculating on your own if you feel like you already know some of it and can manage without help.»
- In a certain session, since this is International class, it is likely better to have a special session or an handout to recall and equalize the understanding of several definitions. For instance what entropy is, what enthalpy is, what heat pump is, what turbine is.etc.»
- The projects and their current workload. Good that it was a small summary in the beginning of the projects.»
- Excercise projects useful»
- The study progress should be maintain»
- The tutorials!»
- Exercise and laboratory settings»
- Projects, Renova visit»
- all»
- The projects exercise and renova»
- The compendium was very helpful and understandible!»
- The project exercises are really important for your learning outcomes»
- Simon»
- The Renova visit, the weekly exercises are also good.»
- hm...the course sheet...please if it can, earlier to put in the student portal..and check the accessability and for checking the project..maybe could be faster for whom that submit the project early»
- The project exercise sessions!»
- Projects!»
- The Renova Lab»
- The weekly exercises in which you get a good idea on how much of the weeks content you have learned (and learn the stuff you have missed and improve the understanding a lot)»
- The projects»
- Renova. Can"t get enough of get out looking on real stuff.»
- The exercises were good, learned a lot from them.»
- Industrial Laboratory at Renova Exercises every week»
- Good to have exercises to hand in, helps you to work continuosly on the course.»
- The binder (is it called "binder"?, i mean the folder with copies) bought at Cremona was A LOT of help»
- project exercices incineration plant visit»
- Good substance»
- The exercises!»
- excercises!»
- The projects»
- renova lab work»
- The exercises were very helpful»
- poject work, and labwork at renova »

26. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- make it possible to decide your own lab-partner. easier to work with someone you are used to. Perhaps make the lab at renova a bit larger or change it somehow to make it more interesting and rewarding.»
- Excercise projects taking up too much time in the last weeks - try to put longer projects earlier in the period as to not have to spend 8h/week in LV6 and LV7.»
- it will be better, if 1 week before the exam there isn"t any assignment left. The goals have to be more clearer, especially when exercise»
- Try to start with project 7 before LV7.»
- Information in some lectures is too dense, whereas in others it is too little. Can be evened out.»
- It was very stressful to have two exersises the last week, could be better to have more work in the middle of the course instead»
- Maybe an extra laboration»
- nothing»
- I think in some parts like evaporators and intergation, the materials have not been enough expanded.»
- The main problem in the projects was the description of the task. Sometimes the biggest challange was to find out what to do while the calculasions were rather easy. I think a more clear description of the system (pictures )is needed without an generall introduction which is often confusing. »
- Putting more exercises that student can do. »
- The solutions to the example examinations should really be solutions and NOT guidlines were you can find similar examples in the text material»
- Lennart kan vara snabbare och fokusera på det som är nytt iställlet för sånt vi redan kan.»
- Have some more calculation exercises, not only the weekly exercises.»
- More example of how to solve problem. I think this would be very helpful, specialty for the final examination.»
- hm..the course in separation..maybe could be more clearly»
- The answers in the old exams were not really clear, most of the just would refer to the course material and were not really helpful! »
- the weekly exercises should be longer and the teachers should be more to provide more help, or divide into smaller groups.»
- The errors in the power-point slides»
- No lectures before 10 am. :)»
- A higher pace, especially on Lennart"s lectures»
- more excercises to work with on your own»
- Not giving a new project in reading week 7, some of us has examination on that saturday. Put more of the work in the beginning of the course, and less in the end.»
- Try not to have exercises on wednesdays. They interfere with Digital control»

27. Additional comments

- It is likely better to regulate about the hand-in and return system of exercise report. I have lost my first exercise report. »
- More lectures with Prof. Thore Berntsson would be nice.»
- This course is the best orginised course I ever have had, very good with the exersises and the lecturs conected to them! »
- If you want an exam you shouldnt have so many projects. This reslults in a too high working load!»
- the lecture and the knowledge that we got for industrial energy system are good but the topic more in the HX..maybe could be added more»
- In the exam we had a question on evaporation, which was not emphasized during the course! Maybe it was better to give a hint to students that the questions in the exam are not going to be quite relevant to project exercises. But in all, I think it was ok. »
