- The biggest problem is that although people may be assigned to what they (their first priority), they could get teammates whose 3rd priority was this project. Therefore there will be a mixed climate of people who are interested in their projects, and people who are not. Bottom line: Let people choose their team-mates as well.» (Rather poorly)

- Considering it is a 7,5 credits course, the workload for me was huge!! I guess the time needed varies a lot between different projects, but it is important that the supervisors, throughout the project, adjusts the work they expect the students to do if some parts turn out to be more time consuming than expected. As a student, it is hard to scale down the project because that might result in a lower grade even though you have done a great job.» (Too high)

- Hoped it would have given more, but since there was poor documentation it was hard to get started» (Poor)
- It got potential!» (Adequate)
- it"s a nice opportunity to take a break from all the theoretical math and physics.» (Good)
- I learned a lot. The project stimuated the engineer thinking.» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The close contact between students and supervisors, I am completely satisfied with the amount of time and discussions we had with our supervisor.»
- the projects. they are interesting and fit well in the "mechatronics" program.»
- Three presentations: One initial, One mid and one final. »

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- More clear descriptions of what is expected to be presented/done by the time of deadlines. The communication between supervisors and course examinator needs to be improved, what is considered for grading must be clear and presented much earlier. For example, in case of hard work and overall good analyses but bad results, how should the grading be done? None of those aspects about grading were clarified.»
- Make sure to get the information out to the students in a better way. Maybe, write some material (just a simple document) that clearly specifies what is expected from the students during presentations.»
- make sure the work is done thoroughly and it"s well documented. there needs to be a better way to "hand over" the projects to future groups.»
- Course homepage. More restricted presentations. Would be nice with example presentations from the examiner.»

16. Additional comments

- It is hard to, in advance, estimate the time needed to complete the different projects. It is therefore important that the supervisors delimits the projects during the course if they notices that one were trying to reach for too much. Make also sure that, as a student, scaling down the project is not a failure that will affect the grade but instead a good thing if it is necessary.»
- 1- It could be interesting to choose the best team each year based on some criteria. it gives students more motivation to raise the quality of their work, otherwise their final product would be just "LAGOM". 2-Let students decides who they want to work with.»
