Genomsnitt: 2.41

- Too much topics, and lots of students from different backgroung, take my example, i am from communication, i know nothing about network, we should have a basic introduction before lecturer talk about quarlity of service and ipv6. But there is no, i sit there with a blank brain. Many students i asked have the same situation. » (Poor)
- Dåligt upplägg. Bättre med traditionellt upplägg utan projekt.» (Poor)
- This course does not have a lecturer, they just invite guest lecturers. The lectures were not related. The topics was not understandable by students from the network program. Most of them needed deep knowledge of communication. This course should not be presented to network students» (Poor)
- I had very high hopes for this course since I thought a certain lecturer was going to manage this course and give lectures. But it has been huge disappointment. It is good for the students not registered for it to attend some of the more interesting lectures.» (Poor)
- The project was bad. It was strange that there was no report. It is hard to hold a presentation without writing a report first.» (Fair)
- administration has to improve to give better guidelines and structure for students. » (Fair)
- Really interesting!» (Good)
- It is a good way to learn more not just about the theory behind the wireless networks, but also about the market itself and the necessities of the purchasers.» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- lectures on networks, security, basics of signal processing, LTE etc»
- The guest lectures are welcomed and the examination style is expected. »
- Guest lectures. They give a good impression of how the current market works and also the insight of the work done in different areas thanks to their own experience.»
- Stephan Parkvels lectures on LTE..»
- The review questions where good»
- Some of the topics should be given coverage next year like: 3G, LTE, HSPA, WiMAX and sensor networks.»
- The same procedure and course plan should follow to the next year.»
- No project it"s a bad way to learn»
- Lecture about the communication process.»
- presentation»
- some lectures ,for example the presentation skill»
- guest lectures, but with adequate synchronization. this period were quite many redundant topics presented.»
- the project »
- Lectures from industry experts were very good, so they should be preserved.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Some lectures that are totally related to business, how to create the market, from where we can get the profit etc»
- The lectures have to be more basic and fundenmental next year since the students are variable with different majors. We can not master all the knowledge deeply.»
- teachers are supposed to give more lectures specific on some topics that are hard to be understood.»
- The wireless networks, and communication engineering students should be separated then the lectures could have a better efficiency»
- There should be one teacher, with 1-2 guest lectures. The lectures should be continues and related to each other. The communication parts should be presented to communication students, the higher levels should be presented for network students. It"s better to have 2 different courses for each speciality.»
- The pace of updates in the webpage. It could be a bit faster for next year, although it could depend also on the guest lecturers themselves.»
- nothing»
- The project shoult have a report. That way students will work harder on the project and learn more.»
- This course needs a single lecturer which presents the material in orderly manner. It also desperately needs a solid course book!!!»
- I find nothing to be changed.»
- Have no project»
- the way of the exam»
- the whole course and lectures»
- some lectures »
- see summary commentary »
- lectures»
- Instead of presentation on hot topics, there should be some implementation projects.»

16. Additional comments

- There must be some basic lectures regarding signal processing by some good and experienced teacher. Students from Networks and Distributed Systems program have problem in this area. »
- The course plan was good and very organized.»
- The guest lectures were good»
- I like the old course structure with Eric better. With lectures and quiz. Those guest lectures have no consistency and boring »
