- I cannot see how anyone can spend the 20 hours/week (or 25 hours/ week that the 7.5 ECTS corresponds to) with the limited material the course go through. The course should been expanded with at least 50-100% material to be that comprehensive that it should be. I have problems to see why courses on master levels must be more comfortable then during the bachelor. » (At most 15 hours/week)

- The lectures are totally useless, the teaching has to be mixed with problem solving if it is to give us students anything to connect the knowledge to. Someone talking about a heat pump or other device for 4hours straight is just not very stimulating. Most of us has not seen one in real life and what is actually useful for us is to learn how to calculate with it to understand the benefits of it.» (Some extent)
- to long lectures, no one listen for that long. Can be possible to shorten the lectures if less repetition. » (Some extent)
- The lecture didnt give me anything, almost. But the exercises were terrific, very well done» (Some extent)
- Learned most on the tutorials. The lecturers where too long. Hard to focus for four hours straight!» (Some extent)
- This is for the classic lectures. The "annex" teaching and help on the project have been a great help for my learning» (Some extent)
- Only some extent if assuming this is only for the lectures. The excercise teaching was extremely giving!» (Some extent)

- Never used/viewed them.» (Small extent)
- There were too many» (Small extent)
- Presentations worked as a summary of the text in compendium.» (Some extent)
- My focus was on reading the course compendium» (Some extent)
- it depends on the part of the course, it was pretty useful regarding the choice of the best fuel mix and regarding the investment costs and so on because this part of the book is really long and doesn"t really focus on what is important» (Some extent)
- There were some points in the presentations (e.g. calculation of the cash flow for different technologies) which were not mentioned in the book. Otherwise I mainly used the course book.» (Some extent)

- Professor Thore Berntsson had the best lectures in my opinion. Simon Harvey"s can be a bit tedious or slow.» (Moderate)
- It took too much time. Could"ve said the same things in half the lectures. But i guess that depends on the preknowledge you have..» (Moderate)
- the lectures on Mondays were really long (4h) even if we had breaks. it is really difficult to stay focused all the afternoon.» (Moderate)
- too slow» (Moderate)

Genomsnitt: 1.51

- A good way of learning about future employment possibilities combined with a rewarding exercise.» (Very interesting)
- Introduction of the plant could be improved.» (Good but could be improved)
- The tour was interesting but the guide did not speak so good english, and it could have been a little shorter.» (Good but could be improved)
- less walking around» (Good but could be improved)
- Only complaint is that the guide was not very fluent in english.» (Good but could be improved)
- The tour was not prepared and bad english speaking guide. The calculations was ok but there is no reason to go to renova if the tour has so bad quality. Could do the calculations at school instead.» (Good but could be improved)
- The Renova representant could have been better i english and when he helped us during the lab exercises he lead us into wrong directions which resulted in that we had to finish the exercise at home. » (Good but could be improved)
- The calculations asked enabled us to really apply our knowledge with real industrial figures, and to learn how to decipher control screens. That was really good. However, the visit was not really interesting: the guide was not speaking English very well and the visit itself did not have a real structure. It was more like: here is this, here is that, and some things made me even more confused than after reading the handouts about the plant.» (Good but could be improved)

13. What was your overall impression ot the exercise projects?

Genomsnitt: 1.4

- The projects were great, they helped my learning a lot. » (Excellent)
- Some minor improvements could be done to specify task to be done.» (Excellent)
- Great way of learning the calculation methods. Also it was very good that you didn"t had to revise your assignments if there was a numerical error although the method used was correct.» (Excellent)
- quite tuff sometime, but i learned a lot» (Excellent)
- The part of the course which provided the best possibility of learning when theory was applied in a very good way.» (Excellent)
- Exercise projects were the best part of course! the projects were very interesting and more helpful in understanding the course.» (Excellent)
- The exercises were very good to understand the theory. Special thanks to our teacher Jean-Florian!» (Excellent)
- This is where I learned the course. I"d say at least to 80%, with the lectures giving the basis. I really like this set up and you should definitely keep it.» (Excellent)
- They were very helpful to get some practice for concepts learned in lectures. In some cases I would say, that the projects were a bit too easy. It was easy to follow the instructions step by step. My suggestion is to leave some room for thinking and searching the course material when composing the instructions. » (Good)
- Quite stressful though» (Good)
- Very time-consumming, and maybe too dense. Several small exercises may be of greater efficiency to remember techniques instead of being stuck in writing reports... but this is also part of the job, I guess !» (Good)
- They take way to much time!!!!! 7 exercise projects and no credits for them is unreasonable when they take as much time as they did. We easily spent 10-15hours a week on the last ones.» (Moderate)
- In my case the exercises were not all that great. It would have been great if the different tutors had discussed what to say to their respective group beforehand. In reality I had the misfortune to end up in a group were we only go little initial help. What I"v see from other groups was that they got way more help in the beginning of each exercise... » (Poor)

- A very interresting course that treats interresting subjects.» (Excellent)

- One of the best courses I took in my superior education. A lot of interesting notions, well presented, in a structured way. The regular assignments enabled us to go deeper into the different technologies before the revisions for the exam, with the opportunity to ask questions more easily. Moreover, doing them in groups of 2 is really beneficial, especially if the 2 students had a similar understanding of the lectures. I really liked this course.» (Excellent)

28. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Less time consuming exercises, less 4h lectures, the lectures also need integrated problem solving on the whiteboard, not only listening.»
- I did feel as though I lacked some basic knowledge of things like turbines and heat pumps, since I haven"t touched that before. »
- Some lectures. »
- add some extra exersices for student too practice at home. One more example for each exercise done at home.»
- If possible at least one sovlved exam of any last year.»
- I would prefer to get some more exercises to work with throughout the course. Just a couple of exercises in addition to the projects. However, many old exams were handed out, which kind of made OK that there were no additional exercises.»
- some topics are in a lot of different lectures and so there are too much overlaps»
- Less monotone lectures.»
- Skip powerpoint and focus on some things with the blackboard as the tool»
- lenght of lectures. 4 hours is not OK»
- Try to involve students more in class to gain their attention»
- Add one or two extra lectures per week.»
- Getting some points from the exercise projects»
- Make the aim of the Renova laboratory clearer. I was a bit confused about what we were asked to do.»
- Would be good if there were more theory questions in the project exercises so that you get better prepaired for the exam where there were more theory questions that you could have thoght by just doing the project exercises. »
- try to not having so many excercises deadline almost at the same week.»
- the load of the exercise projects, the interactions during the lectures»
- maybe improve the visit part in Renova, shorten a bit the exam»

29. Additional comments

- Over all it is very good.I would like to thank all teaching staff.»
- Very pleased with this course. »
- Maybe have some lectures devoted to only the students from mechanical and some for chemical. I assume the chemical students are as bored of the pulp process as the ones from MPSES are of powerplant turbines. »
- Thank you for providing such a great course.»
- liked the course»
