Specific course information

This course presents the fundamentals of the graphic language used to represent shapes and dimensions at scale. It also seeks that students develop the abilities to abstract and represent reality by means of two- and three-dimensional drawings and plans of the projections of objects and assemblies of parts. The use of computer aided drawing is emphasized.

Specific goals of the course

Learning objectives:
  • To apply appropriate criteria to represent drawing plans with regards to labeling, line types and scales.
  • To apply the principles of dihedral and orthogonal projections, sections and dimensions to represent three-dimensional objects.
  • To use appropriate drawing techniques
  • To use software tools for the computer-assisted drawing of engineering projects.
