Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
Students are supposed to have studied Technical Drawing in the High School Students will use a CAD software that is in Spanish.
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. COCIN1. Ability to draft, sign and develop projects in the area of industrial engineering for construction, renovation, repair, preservation, demolition, manufacture, installation, assembly or operation of: structures, mechanical equipment, energy installations, electrical and electronic installations, industrial plants and installations and automation and manufacturing processes. COCIN3. Knowledge of basic and technological subject areas that will capacitate them to acquire new methods and theories and endow them with the versatility to adapt to new situations. COCIN4. Ability to resolve problems with initiative, decision-making, creativity, and critical reasoning skills and to communicate and transmit knowledge, skills and abilities in the Industrial Engineering field. COCIN5. Knowledge to perform measurements, calculations, assessments, appraisals, surveys, studies, reports, work plans and other similar jobs. CEP1. Capacity to design a system, component or process in the area of electrical engineering in compliance with required specifications. CEP2. Knowledge and ability to apply computational and experimental tools for analysis and quantification of electrical engineering problems. CEB5. Capacity 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.
