- As a civil engineering student I hoped for more building acoustics. The course felt very broad in it"s contents.» (Adequate)
- Man måste använda satserna som visas! Kanske kan skriva ihop övningsuppgifter? Eller visa på tavlan. Lite för mycket stoff.» (Adequate)

26. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The project work»
- The lecture notes as literature.»
- The teacher Patrik Andersson, haha! No, but I think the entire course was very well handled. With all the lectures, the supervision of the projects, lab, etc. »
- lärare, litteratur, mycket av innehållet. »

27. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- More information/leading in the project tasks to avoid "dead time". More focused on the important parts and the application of these.»
- Maybe add bonus points to the project work, as I said earlier this encourages better work from the students since they can get more points to the exam by doing this correctly. However, maybe not having extra chances of being graded (in exchange for the points). Just an idea! Otherwise, nothing.»
- Kortare utvärdering! kanske en fråga eller 2 där man utvärderar kursen med 1x2 frågor och 2-3 skriv med förändringar och att ha kvar.»
- färre moment. Exemplifiera och kommentera resulaten av härliedningarna mera! »
- Some calculation examples»
- Maybe it wouldn`t be a bad idea if the lecture notes become a bit simplified.»

28. Additional comments

- Keep it real, sound and vibration folks! Really good job.»
