- Sustainable development, HVAC (low) and calculation courses as DIEE (high)» (Yes, very large)
- I thought that the Heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems engineering course was too easy. Note that I remember them saying that it was a basic introductary course.

Genomsnitt: 4.6

- personal preferences changed» (I would need to think more about it)
- I have encountered other specific fields of interest that would have been easier to pursue studying other programmes. This however has nothing to do with the quality of MPSES» (I would need to think more about it)
- I would be more inclined to choose this course if there were more energy related finance/economics.» (Probably yes)
- It been a really nice program, some corses like SEPS and HVAC drags down the general impression. However really interesting, close connected to industy.» (Yes)
- Because it is fun to learn, to actively take part in group works and to feel that we will have a use for it in the future.» (Yes)

25. What should definitely be preserved in the Master programme?

- Sustainable energy futures»
- The technical approach of the environmental issues. This point of view in electricity production and heat generation is so important and interesting. Also how they are connected to the electricity grid are good. Over all the how the face the issues we are facing. »
- The freedom of choice between semi-compulsary courses.»
- David Pallares»
- Sustainable Energy Futures as the first course is a brilliant start to the programme. Keep it!»
- everything except for the Heating ventilation and airconditioning.»
- To start the programme with Sustainable Energy systems»
- The general structure of the programme with the including course.»
- the possibility to choose between different courses and even take some outside of the programme!»
- Power Market, Energy Systems, Energy futures, Policies and SEPS.»

26. What should definitely be changed in the Master programme?

- Sustainable electric power systems.»
- Be more specific about the semi-compulsory courses and add some more. »
- Maybe try with the industrial environment program to make both more specific. Make use of each other and have a clear point of view with the different tracks in the program. »
- Make the Heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems engineering semi-compulsary.»
- More semi-compulsary courses. Computional fluid dynamic should be semi-compulsory when considering the workload and content of the course. Modelling and planning should be re-structured in order to be interesting rather than focusing on workload. »
- The information about the Master Thesis work was good to start with. But, there was a lack closer to the presentations. It would be good if there was a forum where all presentations could be found. Is it not of the programmes interest to have people attending the presentations?»
- the Heating ventilation and airconditioning.»
- Do not preserve the semi-compulsary courses. Its better to change them to mandatory courses. »
- More compulsive elective courses in different study periods to chose from (or requirement to take only 2 instead of 4), so that planning is easier with the other free courese we can choose and they don"t overlap»
- HVAC, CFD and Life cycle assessment and sustainable development.»

Extra comments/suggestions

33. Finally, if you have some extra comment and/or suggestion about the Master"s programme, this is a good opportunity!

- MPSES class of 2014 rules! Really satisfied with the programe.»
- I know it"s a bit hard, but could be more clear about the exchange with Stuttgart. That it takes quite a long time and try to make the choices clearer so that it doesn"t take so much time when you get down here. »
- Thank you for this time David. You put a lot of effort in to improve the program and are concerned about the students, this definitely shows! Good job! »
- Not really, feel like I"ve gotten everything important out. Thank you for two good years.»
- Regarding the exchange with stuttgart and the future of it. Do not forget to ask the people doing the exchange before you decide on new conditions for future years. It might adventure the whole exchange.»
- Thanks to everyone here at Chalmers! It was a great experience! :)»
- Thanks for a great master programme. I happy with most of it :)»
