- The course and its content gave me a macroscopic view through materials properties which was new and interesting.» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- the group project»
- The small group assignment was a good way of seeing how the theory could be used in reality»
- The project»
- The CES program and the examination methods.»
- of, course- the use of CES. This provided valuable knowledge»
- The assignments and the project work should be preserved.»
- The assignment»
- The individual assignments were helpful to be in touch with the literature for the whole course period»
- The project work.»

- nothing»
- Maybe there could be a better and more thoroughgoing introduction to the CES software. »

- nothing»
- No examination was needed. If something to be done with the examination, it will get better, especially when students see the course as project base course.»

- Very good, have used it in other courses now.»
- it is helpful even in other courses.»
- good»
- It was rather good.»
- good. But it would have been good to be able to draw more than just one line on one graph to better simulate how it is done in practice. »
- Very useful. Didn"t understand the point with indices fully.»
- Very good»
- Excellent»
- Once you knew how to use it it was good and helpful in the project as well as in later projects in other courses.»

- Good»
- quite interesting and helpful for understanding the CES programme.»

- Good. They were adequately difficult and very relevant to the project.»
- Good»
- They are well connected to the key points we learnt in class.»
- I didn"t do them since I didn"t aim for any higher grade.»
