3.2. Competences



CB01. Students have demonstrated knowledge and understanding in a field of study that is part of the general secondary educationcurricular, and is typically at a level which, although it is supported by advanced textbooks, includes some aspects that involve knowledge of the forefront of their field of study.

CB02. Students can apply their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional manner and have competences typically demonstrated through devising and defending arguments and solving problems within their field of study.

CB03. Students have the ability to gather and interpret relevant data (usually within their field of study) to inform judgments that include an important reflection on social, scientific or ethical issues.

CB04. Students can communicate information, ideas, problems and solutions to both specialist and non-specialist audiences.

CB05. Students have developed those skills needed to undertake further studies with a high degree of autonomy.




GC06. Ability to generate the necessary documentation for the proper transmission of ideas through graphics, reports and technical documents, models and prototypes, oral presentations in Spanish and other languages.

GC07. Ability to use and master techniques, skills, tools and techniques and communication and others specific of design engineering needed for design practice.

GC08. Ability to learn continuously, to develop autonomous learning strategies and to work in multidisciplinary groups with motivation and determinationto achieve goals.




SC04. Capacity of spatial vision and knowledge of graphic representation techniques, both traditional methods of metric geometry and descriptive geometry, such as through applications of computer-aided design.


5.1. Methodological overview

The learning process that is designed for this subject is based on the following:

  • Type 1 (Diédrico theory classes and Perspective System) Teaching: Based on classroom exposure of theoretical concepts using slate and animated PowerPoint presentations.
  • Teaching type 2 (kinds of problems Diédrico System and Perspective): casework in the classroom to each student find difficulties in solving problems and cases.
  • Type 3 (classes Laboratory Practice Computer Aided Design) Teaching: Based on the explanation, exercise approach and personal attention in computer use.control, assistance and evaluation, individually, of the exercises by mandatory appointment in office.
  • Type 6 (tutored practice tracking exercises Industrial Standards) Teaching

5.2. Learning tasks

The 6 credits of the subject correspond to 150 hours of student work, which are organized in:

    Theory class
: 30 h.
Classes of problems: 15 h
CAD Practices: 15 h.
Personal work of the student: 84h.
Testing and testing: 6h.

The program offered to the student to help achieve the expected results includes the following activities ...

Teaching type 1: Theory classes (30 hours). Classes of Normalization theory of Industrial Drawing and Representation Systems. It is based on classroom exposition of theoretical concepts with the use of blackboard and teaching didactic means (transparency, PowerPoint presentations, etc.).
Teaching type 2: Classes of problems (15 hours). Classes of problems of Standardization of Industrial Drawing and Representation Systems. For this learning process an individualized assistance in the classroom will be established to the difficulties that each student finds in the solution of problems and cases.
Teaching type 3: Laboratory practices (15 hours). Classes of laboratory practices of Computer Aided Design. It is based on the explanation, approach of exercises and personalized attention in the use of the computer.
Teaching type 6: Practical work supervised. Practices supervised to follow the exercises of Normalization, technical applications and systems of representation, which includes control and assistance in an individualized way in the exercises presented, by appointment mandatory in dispatch.
Teaching type 7: Personal study. Individual dedication necessary to consolidate a correct learning process.
Teaching type 8: Evaluation test. In addition to the qualifying function, the evaluation is also a learning tool with which the student tests the degree of comprehension and assimilation he has achieved in the subject.

Other activities: Tutoring. Direct attention to the student, identification of learning problems, orientation in the subject, attention to exercises and works ,.
