15. What is your opinion about Tünde"s lectures?

- Good.»
- Very engaged teacher, made the course interesting and worthwhile.»
- Great lecturer. Made fusion more interesting to me at least. »
- Give a big picture of Fusion area. good»
- Very good.»

16. What is your opinion about Istvan"s lectures (icf, stellarators and discussions sessions)?

- Good.»
- Very interesting lecture about stellarators! Made me want to work at W7-X.»
- +The content was fine and if you have any question you could always ask him and get a really good answer, but the lectures were not as good. -Standing with the back towards the students reading of a power point is not the optimal way to keep people interested and wanting to go your lectures.»
- good»
- Very good, except he has the tendency to speak into the board sometimes when explaining a figure or picture.»

17. What is your opinion about Yevgen"s lecture (heating)?

- Good.»
- Good lecture, with a lot of information. Had great use of the slides when I wrote the term paper.»
- I gave up going to the lectures earlier so cannot comment on this lecturer.»
- good, but the heating part is not easy to under stand»
- Very good»

18. What is your opinion about Albert"s lectures (exercise sessions and design)?

- Good.»
- Good at the discussion sessions. The lecture was good too, but designing a fusion power plant in two hours made the concept and the details a bit "fuzzy". Maybe it could be a good idea to select some fewer, crucial details and go in-depth in those particular areas?»
- Good.»
- good and helpful»
- Didn"t attend.»

19. What is your opinion about Gergely"s lectures (safety and diagnostics)?

- Good.»
- Very nice lectures! I found them interesting, although the diagnostics lecture contained a lot of concepts and new information which I didn"t really have time to digest. »
- I gave up going to the lectures earlier so cannot comment on this lecturer.»
- A bit hasty, he felt kind of stressed»
- good»
- Good, but the diagnostics should perhaps have an additional lecture. Too many different topics crammed into one lecture.»

25. What is your opinion about the oral exam?

- Good with alternative of written exams.»
- A good and different way of proving that you learned what youre supposted to learn.»
- Good, nice, relaxed atmosphere. Helps you not being nervous. It"s good that if something is missing, they can ask you to elaborate or be more specific, which is not possible on a written exam. But perhaps four questions are too few? I think it would be better with more questions.»
- I havent taken it yet»
- Good, but perhaps the question should be chosen not at random but so as to complement the term paper. »

26. What is your opinion about the term paper?

- Very good! Forces you to actually get further involved in one of the subjects and was, for me at least, a great way of learning. »
- good way to learn things deeper»

27. What is your opinion about the hand in exercises?

- Adequate level.»
- Also good. I however think that the points could be distributed a bit different. »
- Very good! They get you started early and aren"t unnecessarily difficult. Very good indeed!»
- good»
