- The relation between the lectures, the project and the exam is non existent. they should all have a clear relation so that you learn "by doing"» (No, not at all)
- Think the written exam tested other things than the goals.» (To some extent)
- It even test other things that was not in the goals of this couse» (Yes, definitely)

- Again, the relation between the lectures - there is no connection between them, and to the project and exam is again very small. Why is ONE slide of 17 lectures (with many many many many slides) worth 10% of the course (hence 10p at the exam)?» (Small extent)
- Except visit teatchers» (Large extent)
- The exercises were a bit strange. The first exercise was not good to have in hole-class in a lecture room. It should have been in half-class in a room where you could place the boxes in the middle of a table and more than 4 people could see things at the same time. Exercise 2 was not enough organised, it needs some additional material to make sure people understand the steps. For example not clear how the line is drawn and so on.» (Large extent)

- Didn"t like Whaltmans book. The course compendium was okej.» (Small extent)
- In the compendium there was not so much about geophysics and if you did not have time to write everything that they said it was not easy to learn it. And it is hard to write everything... The TW book was hard to read and understand» (Small extent)
- To much information in the course and we need to learn everything by heart. To get a better knowledge the course should focus on an understanding rather then learning by heart. » (Some extent)
- In the group project there were a lot of material that was missing, which made the project harder then it was suposed to» (Some extent)
- The course compendium was good but the book with colour didn"t help much at all, it was too widely spread and too little information about things. It jumped too much so you lost focus.» (Large extent)

- The course is very badly organized. This is a 4th year civil engineering course but it is all set up as high school. Everything is compulsory and the attitude over all from lectures are that we don"t want to learn but you have to. Maybe give the students (which are all grown-ups) some responsibility about their own studies and Please change the attitude to next year. We are studying to learn and for our own sake and please let us. And for those students who doesn"t feel that way - I am pretty sure you can"t fix them. But one good thing - quick reply on e-mails.» (Very badly)
- The previous exams didn"t come out until a week before the exam and this is too late. About 1,5 days before the exam new excersice material was handed out on pingpong which also is too late. » (Very badly)
- Old exams was put on the home page to late, the same for som examples.» (Rather badly)
- not for the group project» (Rather well)
- The exams got out on the homepage way too late» (Rather well)

- VK has very bad ventilation and the length of the lectures has been longer then necessary. To many lectures with to little connection or useful information for the goals. » (Small extent)
- hard to find a computer, in the lecture hall bad ventialtion » (Some extent)
- The Civil Engineering lacks enough computer labs and study rooms in general, but I think it worked ok this period.» (Large extent)

- 40%: This course took up most of the time in the beginning but after a few weeks the other course got a bit dominant. Still this course took a lot of time especially in the end since you couldn"t find any other way to study than to read the literature and hope something would stuck. The course would benefit from a stronger connection groupwork-exam and possibly some questions to answer while reading (not a hand in, just for help). Now the groupwork and the exam were quite different from each other.» (20-40%)
- Very much focus on the project - I think it is really bad that the knowledge from the project didn"t pay back at the exam.» (60-80%)

- I am very disappointed about the attitude from the lecturers and project supervisors. We are not kids and we are here because we want to. Please don"t force us. Let us decide what is best for our own learning...» (Poor)
- Courseproject to big and it did not even help to pass the examination. If they should keep the project it should have a grade and some hp points.» (Poor)

- I do not understand the question itself.» (?)
- I will always remember the extreme amount of !!!! on the exam. e.g. Please mention four (and only four!!!!) ... Again an example of how you treat us like kids and make us feel stupid and yelled at. » (Very small)
- I"d like some more supervised exercise sessions» (Neutral)

13. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Field trip, exercise, lab, and group work are very good way to get a comprehensive understanding of the subject. I love the teaching method on this course.»
- The project is very good if it is better integrated with the rest of the course.»
- the study visit and the group project»
- More time is needed in geophysics’, lectures »
- Field trips»
- Perhaps everything.»
- the project»
- The labwork»
- the group project and the exercises»
- The feasability study.»

14. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- No.»
- The attitude from the lecturers - if you want people to attend and to learn - please make it better - not compulsory!!!!!!!!!!!!!»
- Too much time and effort was spent on the project work. This seems unfair since it wasn"t graded and it hardly helped at all for the exam. The project work should either be graded or the exam and project work should be more similar.»
- ---»
- The tunnel visit»
- I have not any ideas.»
- The project needs to be removed or alternated. It took too much time and wasn"t to any help for the exam., »
- the planning with the other course»
- Course project and the examination should not test more than the goals for the course. Better explination on the structural engineering »
- less lectures, cause they take up to much time»
- Better connection between group work and exam.»
