- I feel that I would learn much more if the lectures & tutorials would be like in the HVE style: mostly black board writing and only sometimes the usage of slides.

- It is better to recommend the students to read Kreuger book and if you can make order some copies to Chalmers libarary that would be great, Kuffel Zaengel book is really killing the time only!» (Large extent)

- Interesting theoritical part, but too many project for no marks.» (Fair)
- Didn"t have a clear goal nor a good plan but the subjects themselves are very interesting.» (Adequate)
- it is an interesting topic» (Adequate)
- The material should be handed out, not forcing us to print... And there should be WAY less slides and much more on the blackboard.» (Adequate)
- Very good and inspiring teachers! The labs was well organized and it is nice that it is enough time so you doesn"t feel stressed» (Good)
- Unfortunately, I don"t think the lectures with professor Gubanski was very good, he was talking about so many different things it was difficult to follow what was important. On the other hand, Yuriy was a good teacher and it was easy to ask questions. He was always very helpful!» (Good)

19. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The laboratory exercises and Yuris computer teaching.»
- the labs as they are organized»
- Keep the laborations! Gives the students more understanding than some of the lectures together.»
- Almost all things»
- the demonstrations were very helpful. Guest lecturing is very helpful.»
- Study visit, Labs»
- Laborations, computer exercises, demonstrations»
- Experimental parts»
- project work lab exercises study visit »
- Everything»
- The study visit to Industry.»
- the study trip and the labs!»
- Elizabeth supervision (labs + lectures !!!), guest lecture (electric arc)»
- ludvika visit»
- Study trip Those lectures we had at the blackboard. (With Jörgen and Elisabeth) The Arc-guy, very interesting... »
- The study-trip, Jörgen´,s and Elisabet´,s guest starring, »
- Laboration/demonstration, study trip»
- Ludvika visit, labs & demos, guest lectures (except the one from Graz that was extremely boring, get someone else to do that part please)»

20. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- More effort and clearification on what problably could be hard to understand.»
- update the project PMs»
- The project should start in Week 3 or 4. Make Kreuger book available at Chalmers Bibliotek»
- students should be aqcuainted earlier in the course so that they could do thier assignments faster. Also,some guest lecturers make their important topics boring.so when they are invited, their English should be checked, and they have to be very explanatory.»
- The project work description should be updated! The way it is now is time consuming both for the teacher and the students, since we have to ask all the time.»
- The course is somewhat "scattered". I guess this could be repaired by a tight planing between all involved teachers and tutors. »
- Update the project discriptions, please! It is very annoying having to ask for a lot of information that was previously given in a prepared file.»
- The project must be inform in beginning of course. and add some application example.»
- The demonstration...»
- LESS PROJECTS or projects and labs with MARKS»
- project time»
- Do not wait until two weeks before the exam to give out a projekt. this should be given erlier in the couse»
- i have to say the whole first week. Lessons with ppt-slides is not good for learning, it went very fast aswell.... Go back to the blackboard. if the ppt-slides will stay, make them more "easy", dont just put some pictures to describe things... »
- Better prepared computer exercises, updated project tasks (they are ten! years old), better planning of the course to not waste that much time with no classes in the middle of the period but classes in the very end of the period. »
- All those slides, we really nead to write down things during the lecture, to be able to slow things down for better anderstanding and also to have something usfull to look at after the lecture.»
- Skip all the huge pile of slides and take 99% of it on the blackboard. If there is material, please hand it out.»

21. Additional comments

- As always, this kind of survey can not be performed before examination..»
- I really wonder how the exam will look like because the order of the topics of the lectures was quite confusing to me and seemed to be rather arbitrary.»
- There should be choice of courses within the department besides selecting from other departments»
- in Generally, there are high load in ending of course.»
- As said earlier felt almost like every teacher had it"s own plans. The tutorials and lectures felt almost like two different courses, unfortunately »
- It is not yet to late to give us some marks for labs and projects .... It is easier to follow and understand handwriting on the blackboard. »
- Not right now. Didn´,t really start to study that intense yet.»
- All the teachers, tutors and lab assitants have done a great job and I really want to say that Jörgen and Elisabeth are among the best teachers I"ve had. Stanislaw and Yuriy have been very helpful every time I have asked them and it"s really noticable that they know what they are talking about. Great work! :)»
