- Really enjoyed this course as a foreign student, the workload was adequate and teachers was available to help.» (Good)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Project 3 was in particular good. »
- More detailed poject description.»
- The lectures assigned for questions.»
- The projects and the question-sessions. »
- Projekten är bra.»
- The lab is good, but should be improved. Maybe have something more, because for now is the lectures quite useless, intresting but you don"t use much of the information you get to something, maybe something more than the project should be good to have!»
- »
- The possibility to ask specific questions about your MATLAB program both during lectures and outside the lecture rooms.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Better power points with more of an theoretical approach. There exists many interesting articles online which the course could use to go further in time series analysis»
- It would be helpful if we would have gotten suggestions on time series that are appropriate for the project, for example stationary time series. »
- Communicate what the expectations on the students are. Let us know how to reach different grade levels. »
- Jag tycket det behövs en eller två föreläsningar där projekten presenteras, startsträckan blir onödigt lång utan det tycker jag. »
- The teachers should have lokked more at the project and done it themselves, so they know more what problems that can rise and to some extent know what results to expect!»

16. Additional comments

- Ask more of the students!»
- It"s a fun course :)»
- I really feel that the teacher care for us students!»
