13. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Literature seminars (although other literature) and small scale project works - though more practical EIA.»
- Ass 1 and Ass 4»
- GIS, and more focus on it»
- The project. I was fortunate to have a really good project group and was happy with the outcome. It was nice to work creatively in an engineering course. The essays were also interesting to write.»
- The urban farming lecture/work shop, was really interesting and fun-more like that. As well as the lecture from the teacher from Switcerland.»
- The excel model that Leonardo have done.»

14. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Administration and language knowledge of teachers. More focus on Swedish EIAs.»
- ass 2 and ass 3»
- material gathering, no use in the understanding of urban metabolism »
- The excel exercise: if you want us to learn the ideas of making a MFA, there are better ways to explore it than copying someone else"s work. Generally the focus on data, the point that it is important was really hammered home, it would have been nice to focus more on implications of urban metabolism, and the sustainability aspects of it.»
- The 5% assignments where horrible. I spend probably 15 hours alltogether to do it, and get it right (it crashed few times and to find the error took forewer) and it was only 5% and then most of my friends they just handed in the same copy and got the same grade as I, despite only one boy did the whole assignement. Bit frustarating and pointless. »
- A More specific description of how to approach the writing assignments.»
- More material to start with during the big group work»
