Course detail

Mathematics and Geometry

FA-MAGAcad. year: 2019/2020

Course content addresses the needs of mathematics to solve technical problems and graphically illustrate the architectural objects in working on engineering and architecture. Lectures provide information on different ways to address problems and current trends, including the use of computer technology. Seminars are focused on individual work of students in skills that apply to specific tasks.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will focus on the use of mathematics and the ability to use mathematical apparatus for solving technical problems. Will be able to graphically illustrate the architectural design. Gets the orientation in the use of computational techniques for graphical representation of curves, surfaces and solids.


Knowledge of mathematics and descriptive geometry in the range of secondary grammar school curriculum.

Course curriculum

In lectures, the development of knowledge and information, individual work with students is carried out in workshops and consultations.


The goal is to use mathematics to understand the principles and apply them in solving practical problems. Another aim is to support spatial imagination, the ability to graphically express their ideas and develop materials for processing the project.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Teaching is through lectures and seminars. During the semester students to develop individually selected problem seminar work. Among other topics individually processed graphical outputs. Attendance at lectures is optional, control does not take place here. Attendance at seminars is compulsory, attendance is under review. Compensation determined Study and Examination Regulations and Guidelines BUT Dean Faculty of Architecture.
