- Informera om möjligheten att läsa kurser från kemi också vilket inte framkommit alls. Generellt fler kurser som DIEE och combustion engineering och mindre system och logistik. » (Yes (indicate which))
- It would be nice if you made more courses semi-compulsory, especially the more computationally heavy. For instance cfd or Turbomachinery. In that way the students that choose a more Computational path does not have to take extra soft courses like for instance sustainable transportation. » (Yes (indicate which))
- Advanced heat transfer» (Yes (indicate which))
- A more specialised course in solar cells. We have some interesting projects here on chalmers and it would be nice to have a course with up-to-date technology and the whole thing around it.» (Yes (indicate which))
- More process engineering focused courses!» (Yes (indicate which))
- More chemical courses Increase the number of semi-compulsary courses with more technical subjects » (Yes (indicate which))
- More courses should be offered as semi-compulsory. e.g. courses within electrical engineering program, such as sustainable power production and also power market management.» (Yes (indicate which))
- Preliminary plant design. More chemical and energy process courses that could go under the Chemical Engineering and Heat and Power track. » (Yes (indicate which))
- It would be nice to have even more courses on transportation, and also about the automotive industry (how to cope with the reduction of emissions in that sector etc). But maybe it"s unrealistic since there are already "sustainable transportation" and "sustainable power production and transportation". It would be nice to have some extra course enabling us to be a bit better prepared for working in the transport sector (with a sustainable perspective).» (Yes (indicate which))

- The Hvac course was a discrace to chalmers in every aspect. The teaching was bad and the teachers were arrogant, it Was bad structured and you did not learn much new» (?)
- The HVAC course was really bad, the course in it self can be good, but the teachers and structure of the course was extremely bad.. Remove that course of make huge changes to it.» (Yes (indicate which))
- Revised: electric power systems and HVAC, interesting topics but where the courses were really bad» (Yes (indicate which))
- HVAC. I heard it got better this year, I really hope it gets developed even more, because that course was not worthy being compulsory in the state it was.. I know several of the paying students were very disappointed.» (Yes (indicate which))
- HVAC systems engineering!» (Yes (indicate which))
- HVAC - I see the importance of that course, but it have to be heavily revised to fullfil the standard of the programme. » (Yes (indicate which))
- HVAC I think it is a very important area of advance but the course design and method and teaching was not worthy of beeing part of the program. Sustainable electric energy systems: Also very important for the program but maybe choose a different teacher. Jimmy is a nice guy but not really a good teacher.» (Yes (indicate which))
- I think the HVAC-course should be included and obligatory (like it is), but it needs to be revised . The learning material felt badly structured and the projects done are without ample supervision nor material. The lectures where good though. » (Yes (indicate which))
- HVAC needs to be revised. Very bad course planning! Heat and power doesn"t have to be so heavy or even compulsory! Even though it was a really good course in general, I learned a lot, but I never liked it nor do I wanna work within this field.» (Yes (indicate which))
- HVAC. Content should be heavily revised. » (Yes (indicate which))
- HVAC» (Yes (indicate which))
- HVAC should be at Sustainable Energy systems students level to really be giving for the education » (Yes (indicate which))
- Sustainable Electric Power Systems Heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) Sustainable Transportation» (Yes (indicate which))
- HVAC (Heating ventilation and air conditioning...). I understand that this course is relevant for those who are interested in the building track of the programme, but in my opinion it should rather be semi compulsary than compulsary. None of the other courses I took had clear connections with the HVAC course. » (Yes (indicate which))
- Sustainable transportation» (Yes (indicate which))
- The "Heating and ventilation"-course is not bad, but it sticks out a bit from the other courses. It feels like it"s not my field, it feels like it"s more of a construction engineering field. But the course has great teachers who are really motivated and passionate about their subject!» (Yes (indicate which))
- HVAC!» (Yes (indicate which))
- The HVAC » (Yes (indicate which))

- SEF and ESMP. But it is ok.» (Yes (indicate what and between which courses))
- Energy futures and energy system modelling. Everything we learned about heat exchangers in Industrial energy system were repeated again in HVAC!» (Yes (indicate what and between which courses))
- Sustainable Energy Futures & Sustainable Transportation» (Yes (indicate what and between which courses))
- Many courses overlap in some lectures which I think you should consider changing. Not sure about the courses but especially lectures about nuclear power. Felt like we had the same lecture 3-4 times » (Yes (indicate what and between which courses))
- Heat and power - Design of industrial energy equipment - Combustion engineering. All courses taught about different combustion techniques, but I don"t think this is a bad thing! It"s good that you see that the topic is relevant from different point of views. HVAC course had a lot of repetition from my bachelor courses (ex. Mollier diagram), but I guess it"s hard to find a level that fits att students with our different backgrounds. » (Yes (indicate what and between which courses))
- I do not remember which ones» (Yes (indicate what and between which courses))
- Sustainable Development and Sustainable Energy Futures» (Yes (indicate what and between which courses))

- Difficult: CFD for engineers, combustion engineering. Easy:Sustainable energy futures, sustainable transportation.» (Yes, very large)
- Standard of the HVAC course is too low» (Yes, very large)
- It is a huge difference in difficulty level between the environmental courses and the more technical courses, but I think it is more due to the nature of the subjects rather than evil/lazy course administartors. » (Yes, very large)
- HVAC - very easy Heat and Power - more time consuming and difficult» (Yes, very large)
- HVAC- easy Heat and power- difficult (but more fun!)» (Yes, very large)
- Heat and power technology (hard), sustainable energy futures (easy)» (Yes, very large)
- I think Heat and power and sustainable development are the ones that most students had problems with. Sustainable development mostly due to very hard correcting, Heat and power because it"s a rather technical course..» (Yes, rather large)
- HVAC and Combustion, for instance.» (Yes, rather large)
- Heat and power was way heavier than all other courses.» (Yes, rather large)
- Mostly with HVAC, it"s very low level. Heat and power and sustainable energy futures had the best (and expected) levels of difficulty. » (Yes, rather large)

- Yes. Especially the cfd and combustion engineering courses were heavy. It was hard to take them in the same period. » (?)
- Heavy load: Heat and power, CFD for engineers, Light load: Sustainable energy futures.» (Yes, very large)
- Energy systems modelling and planning had way higher workload than most other courses, which coupled with co-reading combustion engineering made for quite a shock compared to HVAC+DIEE.» (Yes, very large)
- CFD super high work load HVAC no work load» (Yes, very large)
- HVAC - very easy Heat and Power - more time consuming and difficult» (Yes, very large)
- Heat and power- a large project that took almost all our time. Sustainable energy futurs- a lot of assignments and one debate HVAC- nothing compulsary at all (but I took the course in 2013, I believe they changed a few things until 2014)» (Yes, very large)
- for example CFD and Combustion is war more loaded then Suistanable transportation.» (Yes, rather large)
- Definitely, Energy systems modelling and planning had an absurd work load considering the difficulty of the course which was on par with Sustainable Energy Futures, which had a more reasonable work load. Of course the technical courses (DIEE, IES, electric power system..) had higher work load but that was at least in proportion to the difficult level » (Yes, rather large)
- Combustion engineering was rather heavy, could be because I"m not that good on chemistry» (Yes, rather large)
- Heat and power technology (high), sustainable energy futures (low)» (Yes, rather large)
- The HVAC and the CFD for engineer» (Yes, rather large)

- I should have learned Swedish before I started MPSES.» (Yes, to a too large extent)
- Whenever the parties are made to work together, friction appears. Different schedules, backgrounds etc but primarily the differences in attitudes.» (Yes, to a too large extent)
- Although some segregation exists I have made friends with a lot of international student student, and when I compare to my friends at other master programs we seem to have good relatively good cohesiveness between national and international students.» (Not much, but there was a litlle)
- As there were no class activity planed for the for the first days I think many international student ended up with each other while the swedish talked mostly to the people the already recognized» (Not much, but there was a litlle)
- I think we swedish people have already been at chalmers for 3 years and by that, we already made enough friends for a life time. So we don"t have the same need to socialize with new people, as non-Swedish students do. Therefore, some of us Swedish haven"t really been that active in making new friends, which might have lead to a slightly segregated social life between people. » (Not much, but there was a litlle)

- I would take the chemical engineering program instead. I feel like i have not learnd much that they have not. In many cases when they have been able to read advanced courses i have had to take basic courses or courses that have not given me much, like Hvac and sustainable transportation. » (No)
- Had I known about the rather poor selection of process engineering courses I might have chosen differently, but no other programme is significantly better. The worst part was the small selection of semi-compulsory courses coupled with the rather bad compulsory HVAC.» (Probably yes)
- Great university, interesting mixture of swedish and foreign students in the programme, relevant/exiting topics... » (Yes)
- Because it deals with the most important engineering challenge of our time, and the programme itself is very well organized with relevant courses.» (Yes)
- The programme has definitely fulfilled what I was looking for and everything I learnt is also very useful.» (Yes)

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

- The structure of the programme is very good and follow a red line. First heat and power then IES and DIEE and combustion.»
- DIEE, Combustion, Heat&Power, the nice atmosphere and David Pallares»
- The first four courses are realy good»
- The social committee»
- Good coordination and engagement from the coordinator. The excellent courses of Heat and Power systems engineering and Design of Industrial Equipment.»
- The teamwork approach for most of the courses.»
- A wide range of technical topics»
- The high level of didactic skills of the teachers. The broad choice of courses leaving the choice of the area of advance within energy systems to the students.»
- David Pallarès and the good range of different courses. »
- Energy futures course»
- I took energy systems track and loved all of the courses»
- David Pallarès »
- David Pallares Heat and Power Sustainable Energy Futures Design of Industrial Energy Equipment Industrial Energy Systems Combustion Engineering»
- Programme director (David), guest lecturers, Sustainable Energy Systems course.»
- The core values and inspirational programme direction (David)»
- Everything basically.»
- The system modeling and planning course!»
- The basic courses like the Heat and power, the CFD and the Industrial Energy Systems.»

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

- Less semicompulsory courses or more alternatives to choose from»
- Remove some of th "soft courses" (sustainable transportation, sustainable development etc) and make more Computational courses semi compulsory (cfd, turbomachibery, preliminary plant design etc) »
- Reduce the number of semi-compulsory courses, or make them only elective. »
- The HVAC course. There is nothing wrong with the field, only the course. Also, year 2 autumn has few reasonable course choices due to the block schedule causing conflicts.»
- More semi-compulsory courses»
- Nothing should defenately be changed but it could make the program even better to get rid of compulsory courses and make all of them semicompulsory. I know its not possible ,-) »
- I think there are too many mandatory courses focusing on the environment which often has the same or similar content. I would rather had selected a course that would have been relevant to my professional career instead of learning the same things about the environment and climate change over and over again. But my impression of reading to many courses about the environment could stem from my Bachelor where we also had many environmental courses. »
- Nothing in general, but some modifications in certain courses.»
- HVAC. I would also appreciate more weight given to projects, like I notticed in few of my courses, but notticed it was more common in other master programs. »
- HVAC class content »
- Remove or revise HVAC. At least remove as a mandatory course. »
- I think it is good to think about the balance between compulsary and semi-sompulsary courses.»
- Perhaps changing the "heating and ventilation"-course from, mandatory to semi-mandatory. Not because the course is bad (it isn"t), more because it feels like a course that is more useful for construction engineers.»
- Include a sort of introduction in the chemistry involved in energy production»
- The HVAC course!»
- The HVAC course,the course is useful, but the way to make it comprehensable is not good at all.»

Extra comments/suggestions

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

- In TU Delft or University of Stuttgart, they have a 3 months compulsory internship training in the industry. It is an idea that we can give a try.»
- I think you"re doing a pretty good job in keeping the courses up-to-date, and my suggestion here is to never settle! Keep the concept fresh and include new technology, I think it will catch the interest of the students and keep the programme innovative and avant garde!»
- You are great! Keep going! :) »
- the link to the learning goals is dead. And finally a big thank you for the excellent work and this very special program. It was and still is a great time!»
- Thank you for the great experience! I loved (almost) every second of it!!! Amazing program, fantastic university and a wonderful country! »
- The program is good! In the second year, you lose a little thread. It"s hard to connect and choose the right elective courses. Maybe you find one relevant. It is also difficult to find a relevant theses work and knowing what subject or area you should focus on. Where can one get a job, and with what? It becomes almost too wide and selectable, so you might want some more guidelines. Other than that, very good! Very interesting and relevant area of research.»
- Thank you for a good education! David Pallares is doing a fine job, and he takes the quality of the programme seriously which I/we noticed already from the start.»
