Engineering Graphics
Bachelor in Energy Engineering (Plan: 452 - Estudio: 280)


Department assigned to the subject: Mechanical Engineering Department

Type: Basic Core
ECTS Credits: 6.0 ECTS


Branch of knowledge: Engineering and Architecture

Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
Students are expected to have completed Technical Drawing in the High School.
Upon successful completion of this subject, students will be able to: 1. Know, interpret and use the representation systems, their geometric foundation and the conventions and standardized symbols that underlie industrial design and computer-aided design. 2. Apply your knowledge and understanding to read, interpret and correctly develop industrial drafts. 3. Understand and use different methods to graphically express ideas, designs and projects in a precise, clear, unambiguous and standardized manner. 4. Develop technical level and computer-aided design laboratory tasks. 5. Select and use appropriate tools and methods to graphically document industrial designs. 6. Combine theory and practice to solve problems of engineering graphics. 7. Work effectively both individually and as a team.
Skills and learning outcomes
CB1. Students have demonstrated possession and understanding of knowledge in an area of study that builds on the foundation of general secondary education, and is usually at a level that, while relying on advanced textbooks, also includes some aspects that involve knowledge from the cutting edge of their field of study. CB2. Students are able to apply their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional manner and possess the competences usually demonstrated through the development and defence of arguments and problem solving within their field of study. CB3. Students have the ability to gather and interpret relevant data (usually within their field of study) in order to make judgements which include reflection on relevant social, scientific or ethical issues. CB4. Students should be able to communicate information, ideas, problems and solutions to both specialist and non-specialist audiences. CB5. Students will have developed the learning skills necessary to undertake further study with a high degree of autonomy. CG10. Being able to work in a multi-lingual and multidisciplinary environment CE5 Módulo FB. Ability for spatial vision and knowledge of graphic representation techniques, including traditional methods of metric geometry and descriptive geometry as well as computer assisted design applications. CT1. Ability to communicate knowledge orally as well as in writing to a specialized and non-specialized public. CT2. Ability to establish good interpersonal communication and to work in multidisciplinary and international teams. CT3. Ability to organize and plan work, making appropriate decisions based on available information, gathering and interpreting relevant data to make sound judgement within the study area. CT4. Motivation and ability to commit to lifelong autonomous learning to enable graduates to adapt to any new situation. By the end of this content area, students will be able to have: RA1.1 knowledge and understanding of representation systems, their geometric basis, normalized agreements and symbols about industrial design and computer-aided design. RA2.1 the ability to apply their knowledge and understanding to read, interpret and perform Industrial drawings.
