- Plaese make this a homeexam instead, where you can use and write about what we"ve learnt in the course instead of memorizing definitions to later forget them! Please be brave to have something else than a regular writing exam for 4 hours!» (No, not at all)
- The exam was quite good, I think. Especially the improvement compared to the old exams, with the examinations. But all in all the course is so easy that you can pass the exam without any presence at the lectures...» (To some extent)
- The exam was really easy and I think that it is possible to pass this exam without being in the lectures.» (To some extent)
- The examination was good. Though, it popped up new things that had not been that clear that we should know about. It could have been clearer from the start what we should learn.» (Yes, definitely)

- The lectures were bad, the exercises were even worse. The feedback on the report was useless.» (Small extent)
- Some guest lectures were good, but the main lectures from Jutta and Matti were really bad. The exercises were not helpful for understanding and the feedback for the group work was just ridiculous. » (Small extent)
- Very confusing, un-inspired and disorginized lectures and different messages from different teachers!(some guest lectures very very good) Lack of information and very late information!» (Some extent)

- The course Literature was a compendium of papers and they did"t fit to the lectures.» (Small extent)
- No extent actually» (Small extent)
- The texts were very detailed, too much sometimes, and it would be good if the lectures could be a summary of the texts and the methods. It felt like some of the lectures said other things than the litterature! Better orginized lectures and "not as heavy" litterature would be better!» (Some extent)
- I don"t think that the compendium is good. I think some of the articles are uninteresting and not relevant. I would appreciate page numbers swell on the pages.» (Some extent)

- As an example it wasn"t clear until the morning of the exam that we should have broght calculators. It wasn"t clear what we were going to do on the literature seminars until we got there. There was a big, general uncertainty during the whole course about what was expected of us and what we could expect from the teachers. » (Very badly)
- Some things were not communicated in time or were not clear.» (Rather badly)
- Information very late, eg for the presentations and the opponents!» (Rather badly)
- If I keep a deadline, I would appreciate if the etchers did that as well. And one week in the course not knowing what is mandatory. And the course PM should be finished at the first lesson.» (Rather badly)
- The teachers didn"t appear at one of the dates for supervision. The rest worked quite well.» (Rather well)

- Not really interested in this area!» (Poor)
- I got the impression that the teachers are overtaxed with their task to hold a master course at an university. Their knowledge in the area of environmental systems analysis (asking students for help), skills at presenting it (rediculous lectures) and ability to supervise it (report and home exam) were simply not sufficient to provide a good or at least adequate course... » (Poor)
- I think the teachers were overtaxed with this course.» (Poor)
- The guest lectures were good, most of them. Maybe a bit too basic, and in some cases too much of promotion for their company. Regarding the other lectures, I got the impression many times that the lecturers hadn"t prepared themselves, but were just using material from earlier years, which of course makes it harder to present something.» (Fair)
- Since the teachers were new, I didn"t have very high expectations.» (Adequate)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Project work»
- ...»
- The hand ins, the project»
- The exercises.»
- Many of the guest lectures were very interesting, and should be kept.»
- The exercises that represent one extra point each. They were some good simplifications of real issues.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Higher weighting for assignment, or reduce scope»
- Better communication»
- scaling system, or the scoring system should be changed according to the corresponding workload.»
- Structure and orginize the course better!!! More lively, inspiring lectures -> a fun course, more students will attend the lectures!»
- The compendium!!!!!!!!!»
- The exercises should be mandatory.»
- It should be considered to change the whole structure of the course including staff. Sorry.»
- I think that the teachers of this course should change. I never had such a bad course.»
- project»
- Better administration. Clearer instructions about what should be done when, in advance(not only one or two days in advance). It should be clearer what is what in the schedule. Starting the project later in the course, when the students have a clearer picture of what the course is about. Better guidance to realize what the aim of the project is in the beginning. The study visit at renova could be really interesting with a different guide and with some kind of follow-up in a lecture afterwards. As it was now there were no real connection to the rest of the course, except from the subject.»

16. Additional comments

- Very interesting that the examinator of the course is not involved in the course at all... And to have 2 new teachers at chalmers for the course!»
- It might be more pedagogical to have four or five bigger mandatory exercises and one mandatory litterature seminar,and exclude the exam.»
- The correction of the home exams and reports was very subjective. When we handed in the same, we got different points from Jutta and Matty.»
