- Some courses was not so well performed (Modeling and Simulation, Mechatronic Design).» (Satisfied)
- Some lectures are a bit messy, but this I have commented on in the course evalutaions.» (Satisfied)
- I think the workload is not very well distributed. Some periods are extremely heavy. » (OK)
- I think the possibility to choose different courses is really good, but the quality of many of the courses is lacking. There"s no reality-connection within most of the courses which makes them hard to grasp.» (OK)
- Nivån på programmets kurser varierade mycket. Det fanns några riktigt dåliga, (Modeling and Simulation och Mechatronic Design), halvdålga (Embedded Control Systems, Linear Control System Design) samt några mycket bra, till exempel Model Predictive Control. De dåliga kurserna kändes oseriösa, trots att ämnet de berörde var intressant vilket var synd.» (OK)
- The structure needs to be improved. It"s not rare that the lab/assignment-PMs are ambiguous or incorrect (when techers remake the PMs from year to year they"re quite sloppy and don"t make sure the whole document is up to date)» (To some extent)

- It doesn"t teach you so much about how to work as an engineer, e.g. document your work, cooperation between teams, managing projects (in terms of files, versions and communication)» (Somewhat)
- I would want to have some more practical experiance and a professional engineer talking about his/hers experiance from theirs first job after graduation.» (Somewhat)
- Because many things is just on computer programs such as Matlab and Matlab isn"t that integrated into the future work places, it feels that the education is taking the easy way out instead of actually preparing us for the real working environment and the prerequisites at hand!» (Yes)

- See above comments for understanding of why it"s not the best "grade"» (Yes, to some extent)
- Some courses were not that good in content and structure - Mechatronic design. Also, for thoose that did not study any C-coding or IT before, the Embedded Control Design were very hard (the exercise-supervisor did not explain very good).» (Yes)
- The course is more textbook based and needs to focus on more overall project based approaches» (Yes)
- Some courses for example Mechatronic Design (2013) did not meet expectations.» (Yes)

- It varies from course to course. Some courses have exxesive workload and some very less.» (Adequate)
- But some periods are not so bad. The different courses should be better disposed or maybe some courses should be reduced in workload.» (High)
- But not too high» (High)
- Depending on which courses you take MPSYSs workload during a studyperiod can be too high. » (To high)
- I have actually no life besides the school. I am in the school from 08.00 to 20.00 every day of the week, sometimes even to 23.00. And I am not alone with needing to put that time aside. I know that it"s said that we need to make an effort now that we"re on the Master Programme, but hey is this really okey to be needed to spend this much time? If this mirrors the reality, I will change my career, but I don"t really think that it"s in this way. Therefore I think, again, that you make a poor job mirror the reality for us. One example is that during our "easter break" we have gotten 2 hand-in"s needed to be done with deadline at the 2nd of May, but as there is Valborg and 1st of may (a red day) there is 3 days that week whereas we therefore are forced to do it during our "vacation"! This is a big lack of respect from the faculty and I think that this is one of the reasons that me and my classmates are stressed really ALL THE TIME! Try to think like a student sometimes and I think that the content of the courses will be getting into our heads better! Sorry to sound so bitter, but I have been feeling stressed, dumb and confused all the way back to when I started the Masters programme because I NEVER learns the intended course-material in-time. This kinds of making the content not so funny and interesting most of the time.» (To high)

- I like the thing in Embedded, that we"re forced to work with other students, I got to know people from other countries. It should be mandatory in more courses (though not all, it"s very practical sometimes to get to choose, if you have the same schedule as somebody else e.g.)» (Very satisfied)

Genomsnitt: 3.47

- The big different between master and bachelor is that I have no idea what course evaluations are made, besides the enquete. We never get any feedback and also there"s no Studienämnd so I don"t trust all teachers to have them. I think it should be mandatory for teachers to present the course representatives first two classes!» (To some extent)
- In some of the courses (at least one, the "Discrete Even Systems and Control"/DES, we didn"t even have a evaluation...). And how should we then be able to give our opinion? In some other courses the teacher is arrogant enough to just say "It should be really hard, your engineers aren"t you?". I feel that the teachers doesn"t reflect us students to have two courses each semester and just acting selfish regarding their own course. This is again that you need to think like a student.» (To some extent)
- Good for seeing which courses have good rating. But some courses with poor rating seems to not impove over years.» (Could be improved)
- It is hard to know as you never take a course again after leaving comments. » (Yes, definetly)

- Though I"ve exprienced lecturer/examiner that uses his position as lecturer/examiner, which i sreally bad I think. This particulary case we solved, with help from the Studienämnd in the Bachelor program, but I think it"s dangerous that lecturers uses their position of power in discussions, instead of wanting to solve a discussion.» (No, none)
