The course focuses on mechanical drawing that is mainly used by product designers. It includes theoretical lectures (2h/week) and laboratory lectures (2 h/week).

The subjects of the course are:

  • Introduction to technical and theoretical aspects of engineering drawing, engineering communication
  • Introduction to Descriptive Geometry
  • Projections and construction techniques of different views
  • Sections and dimensioning
  • Drawing, reading and interpretation of mechanical drawings

The students will:

  • Learn the fundamentals of engineering drawing
  • Develop skills in producing, understanding, and interpreting technical drawings of industrial products, in order to be able to support all tasks involved in product design
  • Be able to understand and represent 3D space in two dimensions
  • Learn how to organize a technical drawing
  • Use modern computer based tools to produce an engineering drawing
