- There were not an introductory lecture which went through the goal, aim and scope of the course» (I have not seen/read the goals)
- The goals could be clearer. There are many parts to go through in this course, and I thought that it could be confusing to know what to learn in some parts.» (The goals are difficult to understand)

- A lot was repetition for us in MPSES. I don"t think it"s a good idea to combine us with the master students who hasn"t read any thermodynamics (so it seemed. I think the topic of this course was really interesting and I would have wanted to learn more than we did» (No, the goals are set too low)
- Heat pumps and refrigeration are just repetition. » (No, the goals are set too low)

- very good exam! covered all parts» (Yes, definitely)
- I don"t know about the goals really but I think the exam questions was reasonable since it was about what we have gone through during the lectures» (Yes, definitely)
- The examination was very good, I think it covered a very large part of the course. One question was a bit strange, since we had gotten information that we did not need to make calculations on that part.» (Yes, definitely)

- Very confusing course materials!» (Small extent)
- sooo messy!! please make a compendium» (Small extent)
- It was not that clear which text correspondend to which part of the course. » (Small extent)
- The literature was very difficult to grasp, since it was so extensive and covered things that were not relevant for the course. A proper course compendium with texts that are more adapted to be used in the course would help.» (Small extent)
- I have read all the litterature, it was good to read it as a repetition» (Some extent)

- The organization of the thousand different documents was very bad. Either put up a porper course handbook or good slides.» (Very badly)
- It would be better if the material (especially course literature) could be handed out earlier than in the same week. It was sometimes hard to find everything on the web page that belonged to a certain topic in the course.» (Rather badly)
- some things came out rather late» (Rather badly)
- Would have been nice with a better introduction which explained the different parts of the course.» (Rather badly)
- It was hard to find things sometimes and the lecture slides were put up sometimes and sometimes not. I think that in week three there was nothing since the lecturer used OH-sheets instead. Then it was hard to go through that material afterwards. I understand why the posting of the exercises turned into a mess, since we asked for them and you had to arrange that in short time but there was a lot of mistakes in both qustions and answers and the whole thing was pretty confusing. But I think that next year it won"t be like that.» (Rather badly)
- It is important that each student can plan their own pace of studying, all the litterature should"ve been posted at pingpong at once. That is the first week. The» (Rather badly)
- Would have liked to have the problems on duration diagrams a bit earlier so one could start with them and have the time to ask questions about them.» (Rather well)
- could be better organized on the course homepage» (Rather well)

- The part were unstructured, and too basic as the background was so different. Did not think it worked to have two courses in one, as it was, with two different background tracks.» (Poor)
- Feels like all the material is there, and the knowlegde. But the course was unstructured and it was unclear for a long time what was expected of us in terms of calculation-skills » (Poor)
- I really do not know why this course is so important for us as Energy Engineers...» (Fair)
- The course should be more organized in some ways to be good, but it was not bad.» (Adequate)
- It is good but to low working load. Some projects would be appreciated.» (Good)
- I think Anders is a great tutor and especially his lectures have been very entertaining and interesting to visit!» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The bv2 exercise»
- The content of the course.»
- All interesting seminar lecture (solar, district heating, etc.) from outsiders »
- course literature handed out on web page (but earlier)»
- the phd was very structured and explained very well»
- exercises»
- anders lectures were really good, it was also good that there were a lot of exercise-lectures.»
- Mollier diagram exercise and the duration diagrams parts were interesting to work with»
- - Focus on thermal comfort, fans, introducing the different diagrams by doing excercises.»
- Calculations. And also BV2 excerisce. »

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Would be nice with a course compendia instead of 12 different sources of literature»
- We should have a larger project that makes us do more calculations.»
- You should probably incorporate some kind of project that helps you understand more.»
- More projects.»
- Little less basic exercises»
- More exercises earlier than in the last weeks.»
- - Course handouts material - Structure of the different lectures and how they are linked together»
- Jan! dont be so messy! Also, we need a compendium for this course»
- It is very hard to stay focused during 4 hours of lecture. Would been better to alternate a little with exercises.»
- more exercises in class»
- Jan(I think that"s his name) was really hard to follow, he was both unstructured and spoke with a low voice. It would be good if you post the exercises at ping-pong from the beginning of the course. Or at least the same week as the lectures for every part. I undertand that it might not be possible but I don"t think that masterstudents with such different backgrounds should take the same course.»
- Split the course, one for the MPSES programme, one for the other. Introductory lecture so we get the scope of the course. Better communication between the different people teaching the course. Had been even been better to have a single teacher, and the other to do calculation classes. Split the lectures into 2 hours lecture, then 2 hours exercise, instead of 4 hours of lectures. No point to have it that way.»
- - Fewer lecturers (The lecturing was a bit repetitive). - Reduce the amount of lecturing hours. Lectures about solar and district heating are more or less completely unneccesary.¨, - The mentality that "the course has to be for everyone", like exchange students with a different background. All other courses has requirements of background and a lot of the focus in this course was on things that we alreday knew. Less basic information, listen to the students and find out what background the majority has. If this is not possible, inform people of a certain background what lectures that are repetetive so we don"t have to spend time on lectures that we already have taken in another course. - More calculation excercises, starting way earlier in the course. - Focus on thermal comfort/discomfort, fans, introducing the use of different diagrams by doing excercises. - Make the literature available all at once. - maybe take another look on if some of the litterature is really necessary (like legionella information), since we have that in class. »
- Maybe have more of an introduction lecture on the first opportunity stating compulsary moments and general layout of the course.»
- More in depht calculations. By that i mean that calculation examples should be repeated. If a heater is installed, how does it affect the system and how will it be shown on the stochmeter diagram? What happen when a cooler is installed. These were jus examples how i think those who dont have background in this field wilm find easier. »

16. Additional comments

- Interesting lectures, but you listen more efficient if you have a project or a "dugga" to finnish within soon compared to an exam in 5 weeks...»
- Please reasses if this course can be moved from obligatory to semi obligatory and therefor DIEE can be transfered to obligatory.»
- Overall this course was good. And all the lecturers were good, but Jan was a bit messy. »
- We were specifically told that we didn"t need to know how to calculate questions like number 8 on the exam, we were just told that we needed to understand what happened when changes like these were made. It would have been ok if we had some exercises on those problems and it would have been clear that we should know it, but we were told several times that we didn"t need to know how to calculate these types of questions.»
- Torbjörn should believe in himself, he was good at explaining. »
- Overall interesting course, but should be delivered better prepared, and better delivered.»
