    Competences and skills that will be acquired and learning results:

    To read, understand and develop engineering graphics, plans, drawings, drafts and sketches.
    To be able to use the systems for representation: their geometric foundations, symbols and standards
    To be able to draw and to define graphically ideas, designs and projects in a precise, clear , unique and standardized manner.
    To know the geometric and functional basis for 3D computer aided design (CAD).
    To use at least one 3D CAD program.

    T - GEOMETRICAL TOLERANCES
    P - ERA ENVIRONMENT: Animating, rendering and exploding views. Video generation
    T - PROJECT PRESENTATIONS: The final project will be presented by students.

    Learning activities and methodology:

    There will be theoretical lessons and practical lesson in computer room. The objective is clearly practical and the students will demonstrate their skills by drawing.
    In addition to the exercises proposed during the classes, every student must elaborate a final design project.

    Assessment System:

    The performances and exercises demonstrated in the classes will be eventually evaluated by tutors. In addition a final project has to be presented by the student (see cronogram for details) and will be evaluated. This, altogether, will constitute the continuous assessment. It will contribute to 40% of the total ordinary score. A final exam will also be held (60% of total ordinary score). This exam will be practical and held in computer rooms.
    The extraordinary exam will also be practical. In this case, extraordinary exam will be 60% of total score and continuous assessment - including project - will be 40% of it or, according to UC3M rules, the exam will be 100%.
    Attendance to practical sessions is mandatory.
