Course unit code: FSI-0KD
Academic year: 2016/2017
Type of course unit: optional (voluntary)
Level of course unit: Bachelor's (1st cycle)
Year of study: 1, 2
Semester: winter
Number of ECTS credits:
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.
Not applicable.
Recommended optional programme components:
Not applicable.
Course contents (annotation):
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.
