- the computer assignments and the computer lab was not challenging and everything was sort of a given, and it would be great if we could test advanced control schemes such as MPC on a real plant as well » (Some extent)
- The main literature was not so useful but the other two literatures were really comprehensive. » (Large extent)
- The recomended book is one of the best to date. Short and informative information.» (Great extent)
- Some times I tried to study the book Applied Nonlinear Control, in my opinion it is better than Glad/Ljung » (Great extent)

- information about the lab was late, there was not much room for planning anything else as times came out to late. Hand-ins were ok. The same problem as most other courses - there was absolutely NO info about the course on the homepage before the coursestart, which makes it hard to plan part-time work, etc.» (Rather badly)
- Some material was handed out a bit too late. But not a big problem.» (Rather well)

- Hand-ins and labs were nice to get a hang of it. It"s a hard course, but interesting.» (Good)
- administration and lecturing good. difficult subject» (Good)
- Very interesting course!» (Good)
- But very hard» (Good)
- Tack vara Bo E.» (Good)
- On my top three list of courses on Chalmers.» (Excellent)
- One of the best courses so far, very well structured and the course is moving on at a resonable pace so you can actually contemplate what you are learning.» (Excellent)

16. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Bo Egardt as the teacher»
- The study visit to a company.»
- Hand-in and labs.»
- the good administration and the field trip»
- The content and the type of lecturing»
- The assignments and computer-lab»
- Hand-ins and lab. Learnt a lof from these. Although if would have been fun to do the lab on a real pendulum. Bo has shown a lot of examples using Matlab on the lectures. This I think he also should do next year.»
- Bo Egardt, company visit, Magnus Nilsson»
- Nothing, it is already excellent»
- excercises consulting hours magnus nilsson»
- the teacher, material( an extension would be okay too)»
- Most things»
- MPC, The visit to preemraff»
- The compancy visit. Very informative.»

17. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Make the computer lab as a hand-in. Not much of a laboration.»
- nothing»
- The administration around the course. Info must go out sooner to students! This course is not the only thing we do!»
- predefined lecture halls»
- Some more exercises on each section.»
- Don"t change anything.»
- The main literature.»
- More assignments to force the students to start working with the exercises in time. Less focus on lemmas on the lectures and much more exercises. The course is far too theoretical in my opinion.»
- computer lab and assignments(definitely)»
- I wouldn"t say definitely, but the computer lab might be structured in a better way.»
- The LAB could be better, perhaps make a home asg. before.»
- Perhaps site where the methods and theories can be used in industry, i.e. where is the theory applicable in industry.»

18. Additional comments

- One of the most interesting courses I have attended.»
- Bra kurs, men väldigt svår. »
- Good but hard course.»
- I just have a comment about the assignment,I think for the second one the important job was to write the m.file and learn how to implement MPc in Matlab but I as a student did not do any thing and every thing were prepared by TA.»
- Overall, an excellent course! Well structured and thourough. Like the balance of course load to independent study.»
- I decided to quit the course due to too much work in other courses this period.»
