Learning Outcomes

Students will learn to create 3D part models, sheet metal models, sub-assembly and assembly models. They will also learn to create assembly and component drawings by using CAD software. They will also learn basic knowledge of the theory of technical drawing and understand the symbols used in mechanical drawing.

Student's Workload

40h lectures, exercises
40h practical work, preparing for exams

Prerequisites / Recommended Optional Courses

No previous studies are required.


-Theory of technical drawing
-3D modelling and general theory of modelling systems
-3D modelling of products and assembly models
-Drawing planes and sheet metal designing
-Diagrams and their standardised symbols

Students will do exercises using the Solid Edge 3D CAD programme.
