- Have seen them, dont remember» (I have not seen/read the goals)
- because of in some lectures Johan use to say !later you can understan by yourself!» (The goals give some guidance, but could be clearer)
- just by stating goals, it doesnt change the meaning of the learning outcome. Proper text books should be prescribed first. Exam should not be based on the slides only. Preserve the integrity of the advanced level of technical education. make it at par with leading universities in world.» (The goals clearly describe what I am supposed to learn)

- It was just slides and speaking without any extra explanation on the board in order to make it understandable.I thinks it is very necessary in engineering. » (Small extent)
- rather boring to sit while the lecturer is flipping thro slides.» (Small extent)
- The teacher wasn"t that inspiring, had dot follow Johan during lectures.» (Some extent)
- Sometimes "clear" questions got answered in a very complicated manner. Instead, answers should be more compact and precise.» (Large extent)
- It would be nice if you could use the PPT as an tool instead of puting every thing there. If you could write some on the blackboard and summeries it on the slides, I think, it would be better. And also put some effort and do your own slides:)» (Large extent)
- I must say that the teaching in this course has been great.» (Great extent)

- In my opinion the course is slightly deviating from the Aim of course. The course should mainly involve ,detailed description on choosing a perfect machine for the application based on its characteristics as per "learning outcome" mentioned in course page, but it has deal with more on dimensioning a machine( last two lectures). Like the course should have topic on how to choose a drive for steel mill, paper mill, cement factory , Robots etc, based on its environment of operation and application. Again, it is just my opinion.» (Adequate)
- Very diffuse. Previous exams was a lot easiser. Could be more focused and less of a power-point festival. » (Adequate) (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)
- Would have been excellent if there had been 48 hours on one day.» (Good)
- Some tutorial solutions could have been better prepared.» (Good)
- i learned simulink, yeah!» (Excellent) (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The labs»
- Laboration was quite good»
- Labs»
- The labs were very godo for understanding the machines»
- Course book»
- Labs»
- DC machines and its control. Induction machine. AFM,TFM, BLDC, SRM.»
- Better lecture.»
- Saidh he was a really good techer and tutor.»
- The labbs »
- The teachers and the book!»
- The teachers.»
- The tutorials with well-formulated answers. The lab was also good and easy to follow.»
- The great laboration assistants!»
- More stress should be given to control engineering subjects, and only thn introduce the drives and machine parts. high level should be maintained.Please try to introduce matlab sessions for students who are not knowing it. In my case it was difficult because i was dependent on others for it.»
- Said»
- lectures»
- The labs and tutorial sessions should be maintained»
- The labs are really usefull to understand more in details the first topics(DC-machine).»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- This course is a great example of why powerpoint lectures suck. They just stuff the lecture slides with so much unnecessary information that its ridiculous. And its impossible to see what to remember from the lectures that is important.. really worthless slides and boring lectures. »
- a clearer description, of how a current control and speed control works. Do not increase the amount of detail. Increase the understandability.»
- Some lab on, other motors»
- Not having the exam the day before the other compulsulary course, not having labs that conflict with lectures in the other course»
- Instead of lecture 1,5,15 & 16, other lectures could have been taken for more sessions to get a feeling that we are mastering on the subjects. Applications of machine, should not be in single slide of a lecture, it should be dealt in detail. »
- much less slides, instead more completing explanation on the board»
- johan some times were to fast in some lectures. Even he told us in many occasions: If you can not understand you will get it later by yourself it is not so complicate!! I think he should not assum that everybody know well about something. Lectures are extreamelly important.»
- Lab works originated from old lecture materials. New references and lecture materials introduced but introduction to lab is not completely introduced before the lab.»
- Maybe the minus point at the mid exam. And more time on the lab-exam. The most stressful test jet at Chalmers.»
- More practical»
- The course is fine as it is.»
- Own PPT and use the blackboard more.»
- Minus points on the trial exam, why??»
- laboration instruktions could be a bit more clear. A better book so not as many handouts are requiered»
- Updated laborations. Less power-point and more relevant knowledge.»
- Fix the lab PM! They are old and need updating. »
- prescribed text book»
- Some of the less practical parts of the course could be left out to make the work load fair for students without much background on this course.»
- The Lecturer. He has a laid back approach when it comes to delivering knowledge.»
- The tutorials should be more focused on the same kind of excercises that are found in the final exam. »

16. Additional comments

- would be nice to have a more energetic lecturer »
- E.g. there is a question on the slide and lecturer try to explain it with words, think if somebody may need more time to understand, if he or she write it down without just listening which there is more risk to forget , he can go through everything once more and try to understand....»
- At the end I fell so good with this course.»
- It wasn"t good to have the exams this period the days after each other.»
- The exam was more difficult than the last years and not tutorial orientated as before....»
- It"s very important that Chalmers educate the lecturers. Although a lot of knolledge there are obvius lack in pedagogic skills. Isn"t there any program to helping lecturers and tutors to be excellent in their teaching.»
- I would say the course was well presented by the lecturer who was always available to help»
- I think the exam of this year was more difficult and on a higher level with respect the lectures and tutorials.»

- This question as such has no meaning, excuse me for being blunt but we do have some very good professors, so stress should be given more on what they teach, different teachers taking the saem subject is of little or no consequence to the learning outcome. But advancement in knowledge should always be the prime goal of the teachers. » (?)
- preferable to have one!» (Small extent)
- One was better than the other» (Some extent)
- Quite boring with just slides. » (Some extent)
- Some lecturers were not necessarily as clear as others which was a problem.» (Some extent)

- It is good to have lecture from others who has core knowledge on the topic.» (Large extent)
- It feel like you are trying to teach be best !» (Large extent)
