Course detail

Selected Chapters from Descriptive Geometry

FSI-0KDOptional (voluntary)Bachelor's (1st cycle)Acad. year: 2016/2017Winter semester1, 2. year of study2  credits

The course familiarises students with the fundamentals of three-dimensional descriptive geometry, theory of engineering drawing and graphical method of solving space or solid analytic geometry problems. Presentation of these concepts will enable students
to understand descriptive geometry who will be able to relate it to engineering and technology.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will acquire basic knowledge of three-dimensional descriptive geometry
necessary to solve real life situations in various areas of engineering.

Mode of delivery

90 % face-to-face, 10 % distance learning


Students are expected to be familiar with the fundamentals of geometry and mathematics at the secondary school level.
