Spatial vision and knowledge of graphic representation techniques by both traditional methods of metric and descriptive geometry as well as computer-aided design applications.
Technical Drawing is a basic subject in all Engineering Studies, but in the branch of Industrial Engineering it has a special relevancy since it is practically impossible to avoid its use in any of its professional applications. Managing plans or three-dimensional models made by computer is key for their design, creation, edition, reading, simulation and execution, both in manufacturing or building processes. In addition the plans of a project are, at he same time as the budget and the schedule of conditions, contractual documents in the adjudication of the project. That is why its definition, unequivocal character, accuracy and absence of mistakes are very important since they may notably change the costs and benefits of the promoter and builder.
Methodology and grading
- Lecture: Pass on knowledge and activate cognitive processes in students, encouraging their participation.
- Problem-based learning: Develop active learning strategies through problem solving that promote thinking, experimentation, and decision making in the student.
- Solving exercises and problems: Exercise, test, and apply previous knowledge through routine repetition.
Qualifications will be based on 20 % on the note of practices obtained of the controls and of some of the obligatory ones; and 80 % of the note of the examination.
The exam will be structured in two parts, the first one (60 %) of manual execution for the most part practical, but with theoretical brief questions, and the second part (40 %), which will be realized by means of AutoCAD.
All this without preventing that any pupil demands a global examination of the subject, in these cases would have to realize a few additional exercises in each of two parts of the exam.That is, pupils could do an exam with questions about practice part moreover theoric part.
