In this case study, we have gathered teacher and student experiences on electronic examining system EXAM at a technical university. We will introduce the electronic examination system EXAM, the process of completing an exam and data of user experiences. Computer-based exams are often considered hard or even impossible to use in engineering subject exams but in this research it is shown that both engineering teachers and students find electronic exams easy to use and adaptable. In the spring of 2017 EXAM consortium implemented a national student feedback survey on EXAM. Feedback was collected from almost 750 students and 40 teachers of Tampere University of Technology and the data gathered is analysed and shown in this study. The results indicate that teachers as well as students are generally very satisfied with the electronic exam system and often prefer the electronic version over the traditional paper version.
