- The level of the examination questions was fine, but the number of the theoretical questions was too large.» (To some extent)
- The exam was however a bit to time consuming. I found myself not able to write as much as I wanted, not because I didn"t have the knowledge, but because it would take too long and I would not have time for the last questions. This was a bit frustrating.» (Yes, definitely)

- The lecturer was enthusiastic and communicative. However, the lectures included too much writing on the board. Trying to take notes and at the same time follow the lecturer often proved very hard. There were also too many derivations of doubtful usefulness. Finally the lectures often included just "mentioning" stuff that is related to other fields, mainly power systems (eg switching overvoltages). The (quite significant) time used for this extensive superficial "mentioning" could be devoted to material more up to the point.» (Some extent)

- tutor wasn"t that good at explanations, so formulas were often speaking of themselves.» (Some extent)
- The tutorials clearly illustrated most of the theoretical concepts that were taught.» (Large extent)

- The cooperation in the group for the first exercise was really bad. Some people have not been motivated to do anything, so that the main work for the report has been donde by only two of five persons. The groupconstellation for the second lab was different and it worked out very well. Everybody put effort in the report and shared his knowledge with the others.» (Rather well)

- teaching personal»

20. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The trial exam and the exam should be more adapted too the time you have too complete them.»
- The laboratory hours should be reduced.»
- New book. »
- -The balance between slides and writing on the board -Less "just mentioning" (superficial knowledge) -Fewer derivations»
- The tutorials could be included a bit more discussion.»
- It could be better to change the tutor or ask him to improve his way of explaining the material.»
- Nothing»
- Nothing to mention..»
- laboratory home assignment questions might not be that tricky»

21. Additional comments

- As an exchange student I really appreciated that I have the impression that the aim of the professor is to make us understand high voltage engineering and that it is easy to get personal help if a student has problems. I am used to lectures as an monologue of the lecturer and if students do not understand everything they are told that they might be at the wrong place.»
- Thumbs Up Jorgan! U r a man at High Voltage!!»
- Every person related to this course clearly tried a lot to provide good quality of education. Indeed the course provided useful knowledge. However, I think that there is considerable space for improvement.»
- I thought that the exam wasn"t as balanced as it should have been. The theoretic part was too extensive or that the calculative problems could be bigger in some way. Any way I had a problem with the time on the exam were I felt that the theoretic part took to much time considering the points that they were worth.»
- Please pass on my thanks and regards to both Jörgen and Thomas for a great course! Best one so far!»
