- But since I study a more technological oriented programme I felt that the methodics of this course was confusing to me. I think this kind of methodics are common in economic and social sciences but not in engineering.» (Yes, the goals seem reasonable)

- I guess that it asses some parts of the course. I do however think that it would be better to have more questions but with less text per question. Maybe answer all 6 questions instead of 3 out of 6. But instead do not expect so much text in each question. I felt that some of the questions did not need so much text and that I had to insert some comparisons and stuff just to get enough amount of text.» (Average)

- I felt that I did not know where or how to look at relevant information for a project in such a subject. Also my project mate was not to any help whatsoever. You must realize that many of us studying engineering are not used to researching these "soft" subjects. We are used to doing projects where you solve a specific problem and clearly can asses the results. These kinds of projects is new to us.» (Bad)

- Something you have to do, but rather not likes to do, sorry ...» (Poor)
- very fragmented course with poor literature. It contained halfwritten papers with missing pictures and little structure put also very specific papers from journals with to high level for a course without prerquisits.» (Poor)
- The course in itself is okay, but unfortunantely it feel very "out of context". I don"t see why we would need this course in order to graduate. I would much rather spend time learning something more relevant to my education (engineering physics). Why not make our environmental physics course an MTS course for example?» (Fair)

18. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The way of examination.»
- The take home exam is a good way to learn. It"s flexible, and allows one to choose what to write about (to some extent atleast).»
- project on different topics. »
- The lectures»
- The project work»
- the project and the presentation.»

19. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The schedule.»
- home exam pattern. it should be more challenging»
- Well I guess you need a better understanding of that many students that take this course are not economists. For us the course methodics are not that obvious. We might need more help on how to do the projects.»
- Nothing..»

20. Additional comments

- Erik and chalita was very helpful during the course. »
- As a broadening coarse I think it is better to discuss a wider picture than just diving deep into different and very specific topics.»
