Descriptive Geometry

The 'Descriptive Geometry' is a compulsory subject for the first semester in the bachelor's degree programs Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering as well as Vocational Education, specializing in Construction Engineering. The lecture of 2 SCH takes place each winter semester. The written exam is offered twice a year.

The course introduces different methods of correctly depicting technical objects and trains the ability for spatial visualization. Possibilities on how objects can be represented in a two dimensional plane and corresponding geometric problems will be discussed. Furthermore, methods of amending and modifying simple projections, e.g. through text, dimensions, scales and line styles, to create technical drawings will be presented. During the course different drawing styles (free hand and guided drawing, computer aided design) will be introduced.

Learning Outcomes

After completing the course students will be able to depict three dimensional object on planar surfaces by projection, solve geometric problems in space using planar representations and correctly produce and read technical drawings.
