- The examination date is on the 24th and this questionnarie has to be done before the 15th. This is more or less always the case with course evalutaions so I dont understand why you bother to have this question if none is able to answer it.» (I don"t know/have not been examined yet)
- Seriously, send these evaluations AFTER the exam (or at least have the deadline set to after the exam).» (I don"t know/have not been examined yet)
- let us answer these evaluations after the exam!» (I don"t know/have not been examined yet)

- Have not started with it yet» (?)
- Don"t know, I haven"t done it yet.» (?)
- Deadline course evaluation: May 15 Deadline assignment 2: May 18 Don"t blame us for useless feedback when you mess things up like this.» (Very bad)
- This one"s really too hard. It"s interesting but should maybe be in some other form, or with more TAs. We got stuck all the time and had to ask friends because Mitra had alot to do during the consultation sessions. And the friends didn"t know either so this assignment didn"t give anything until Mitra had time to help you.» (Very bad)
- This part should be reconsidered to next year. The idea is good but another assignment on MPC should be used.» (Very bad)
- Haven"t done it completely sofar. (so it probably will end up in a "very good")» (Good)
- did not learn that much about MPC, most time were spent on understanding the code.» (Good)
- It was too much focus on the m-files library, and not enough focus on what MPC accually is. An introductory MPC exercise (on a simple plant) would have been good.» (Good)
- It was difficult to know what to do and it felt like some theory was missing to know how to do things. » (Good)

9. For next years course, MPC will be moved to a new separate course. Potentially, this leaves more time to the other parts of the course. What parts would you have liked more efforts on?

- Adaptive control maybe»
- Optimal Control, since it is very theoretical»
- Lyapunov, More exercises. (45min/week might be a little to low amount of time. perhaps two sessions per week instead with the same structure.»
- I don"t know»
- Optimal control should be separated»
- adaptive control maybe?»
- Describing functions.»
- Another lab, implementing the learned control theories on an actual physical plant.»
- The describing functions and also the Lyponovs function stuff.»

10. To what extent has the course literature and other material been of help for your learning?

- We have to read several books, There is no one single (complete book for this course). Course supplement is not enough. » (Small extent)
- The book can be a bit hard to understand sometimes. For example if it has some example solution it might skip many steps without explicity writing what is going on. Which causes uneccesary frustration when trying to figure out how solve a similar task by using solved examples. The Supplementary litterature was much clearer and helped more.» (Some extent)
- But it was a lot of chapters that was not part of this course and the book referred much to be chapters before so it was hard to just read about the stuff that was interesting for this course» (Large extent)

- Post PM earlier» (Rather well)
- Try PingPong next time, works very good as course web page» (Rather well)

- Mitra does a hell of a job out there but could use some support» (Rather poor)
- Very good with consulting hours for the home assignments. Assignment 2 should have had its consulting time booked in a Computer room for those that dont have laptops to get help also.» (Very good)

- Hur kan ni va så jävla dumma i huvudet att ni lägger de två vanligaste tentorna för MPSYS samma dag?????? Problemet var känt dag 1 men ändå gjordes inget åt saken. » (Poor)
- A bit hard to grasp everything, there is many separate parts» (Good)
- Good lecturer and teaching assistant!» (Good)

17. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Torsten»
- Lectures on blackboard.»
- Torsten, of course.»
- ---»
- Nonlinear and adaptive »
- Assignment 1 »

18. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The lab should be more like a lab with a real plant to control, otherwise it could be executed as a assignment»
- I think that the exercises lead by Mitra should have more of demonstration of exercises instead of "helpdesk" styled own work.»
- ---»
- optimal part and linear part»
- Maybe the exercises can be redrawn because some of them was really hard to know what to do and how to do them and some theory was missing to know how to do things.»

19. Additional comments

- Course evaluation should not be done before the end of the course...»
- Hur i hela helvete kan man lägga två stycken rekommenderade kursers (MPSYS) tentor på samma dag och tid??!?!??!???!?!??!!??!??!??!??!??!?? Om så, hur svårt är det att göra två tentor?»
- Det är ett jävla skämt att man måste skriva båda tentorna på samma dag!!! Trots att problemet är känt sen första veckan. Va sänder det för signaler? Kursen känns tillräckligt svår ändå! »
