- A good startup on the masters program» (Adequate)
- Interesting when you get to choose the subject of deeper study yourself.» (Good)
- MariAnne is a great tutor with excellent language skills and personal interest in what everyone do. I got the impression that she knew everything worth to know and she taught us very well. She made a "boring" course interesting. » (Good)
- Ive been studying similar things during exchange studies but I think this kind of course is really important since its concluding what has been teached so far during the education. Its also important to get some knowledge about ongoing research since it might interest many students in terms of future career.» (Good)
- Eventhough we all knew the basics of the PDP, I felt that this course brought a new and interessting perspective. » (Good)
- I found the subject very interesting and it was presented and worked through in a good and understandable way.» (Excellent)
- Made me want to go into the research field actually!» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- mariann´,s lectures, easy english to understand.»
- the final assignment, fine opportunity to study and do some asic research on our own»
- MariAnne»
- everything»
- Lectures and assignments in general, and the seminar was nice, keep that!»
- The individual assignments.»
- Ongoing research and presentation about methods to be used in different phases of the pd-process. It was a good balance in different research topics. I think its important to present state-of-the-art research, particularly in Sustainable development, since Chalmers is supposed to be a leading university in the area. Maybe this kind of research briefing could be even more emphasized? Not necessarily to inspire students to start doing research but to provide information, which will help students using up to date methods and perform project work that will contribute to the world development progress. »
- Assignment 4- very exciting to study an area of your own interest The seminars- I believe that I learned much from these »
- The wide variaty of lecturers and subjects, and the assignments.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- more seminars/discussions»
- The guest lectures wasn´,t very interesting »
- Move the tutering of assignment 4 so it is placed later in the study period and that we have come far enough in order to have use of the tutoring.»

16. Additional comments

- actually one of the most interesting courses so far during my years at chalmers»
- none »
- It is very important that the feedback from the first assignment is provided before starting the following essay. Students must be able to learn from their mistakes in order to produce a better result in the second assignment. I think this functioned rather well but some students were provided feedback too late.»
