- The World Solar Challenge project didn"t really have any clear scope from the start. We as students were relatively free to decide it for ourselves, which in some sense is really good and in some sense really bad. » (Large)

- As expected» (Adequate)
- Since the scope and layout of the WSC project wasn"t stated at the start the workload was to a high degree up to us as students. » (High)
- This is due to distribution of work not being divided properly in the beginning of the project.» (Too high)

- Nice and comfy, but that"s because i only had the project course during the second period of the project. It"s nice to not be too exhausted when it"s time for master thesis.» (Adequate)
- I chose two elective courses (apart from the Automotive project) from the Applied Mechanics master, which proved to require a lot of work.» (High)
- Again due to the work distribution of the project.» (High)

- The course is fun, but can be improved.» (Fair)
- It was a very interesting and ambitious project, but should maybe have been more controlled from the school. Especially the fact that we were required to learn software which no one at the department knows isn"t really optimal. Much of the project was devoted to learning Star-CCM+ rather than developing the concept.» (Adequate)

20. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Lectures, General structure, Let students be autonomous.»
- The CFD part of the project. Even if it is not an aerodynamic project, CFD is used in many applications within the automotive industry.»
- Good supervisors is important. They should try to inspire the teams.»
- This sort of project is one of the few chances you get at Chalmers to really apply your knowledge, which is something that is really good. »
- The MGMT courses with Mats Fredriksson.»
- The EEP project!»
- Presentations»
- Writing the report together! Though with an earlier agreement to it...»
- The course it self and project in GT-Power.»
- The presentation day»
- The EEP project provided a good opportunity to learn a lot about the latest in power-train technologies.»
- The entire concept of projects should be preserved especially the competition between different power train groups»

21. What should definitely be changed or added to next year?

- More focus on the topic and not project management.»
- Make sure that the supervisor(s) knows that they are required to get involved and help. We are students to learn and develop and for that we need help and supervision. I"m assuming that the supervisors get some sort of credit for their work and if we as students are required to work in order to earn our credits, than so should the supervisors. »
- No seminars. This things should be shown by each supervisor.»
- The Value model is to heavy to grasp during such a short period of time. There should be an easier and more understandable model/book!»
- A basic course in MatLab/Simulink could be included at the beginning of the Programme for Non-Chalmers students. As it isn"t necessarily a part of Bachelors degree in all countries.»
- May be more number of projects to choose from and people should not allowed to choose partners and should be paired up by the faculty themselves»

22. Additional comments

- This Automotive Course was very well designed and managed.»
