- We spent too much time on the little minutia of things. I still barely understand how/when knowledge of this subject would benefit me as an engineer. Not enough practical examples have been given, instead the focus was on very detailed (and sometimes painfully slow and dull) theory without discussion of application or context.» (Fair)
- The course is good. But I think the course is not worth 7.5 credits.» (Good)
- An interesting subject, and well performed lectures. It gets more interesting when you hear that Bengt is interested in the subject. » (Good)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- This class is great, needs no changing except that 4 hours straight in any lecture can be quite draining.»
- Everything. »
- The lectures are good.»
- Everything!»
- The homeassigments, learnt alot. The lecturer, very good in explaining! »
- Everything.»
- Real-world examples like mars robot were good. Queuing theory at the end was the most interesting, definitely preserve or even extend.»
- Everything»
- I thought the first assignment was rewarding.»
- home assignment»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Not present new material on the lectures so close to the exam.»
- Nothing»
- Nothing.»
- The mathematical proofs seem unnecessary. Could be shortened or even taken away. It is important how to apply the knowledge, not to proof the background - that has already be done by others.»
- There originally was a lab component, but that was removed. I believe that that lab component, and actual hands-on PLC programming, would have made the course MUCH better.»
- The final two assignments were a complete waste of time, especially the third one. The oral exam was a joke, and completely unnecessary considering how close it was to the final exam. »
- add some lab job»

16. Additional comments

- Bengt is a great teacher and really knows how purvey his knowledge»
- Hello»
- the exam was incredibly unfair when comparred to previous exams»
- No»
- Make sure to visit both rooms on the next exam»
- It would be better if exam is more focused on the subject we"ve had some training at. I mean, not presenting new things on the exam, such as predicate expression for transitions. »
