Learning Outcomes

The course constitutes the basic introductory course on environmental systems using Computer Aided Design in theoretical and practical level.

The theoretical level includes scales, area of rectilinear and curved figures, Cartesian and polar coordinates, contour lines, elevation zones, slopes, incisions and visibility, ground plan, plan and elevation.

The practical level includes usage of CAD, description of the design environment, introduction, file manager, screen management commands, drawing commands, object editing commands, dimensions, marking, insert text, layers and insert block.

2) Upon successful completion of this course the students will acquire new knowledge and specific skills on the following subjects:

  • Will have knowledge of basic and critical characteristics of technical design, with and without the use of computer,
  • Will gain knowledge on design tools and techniques,
  • Will be able to understand the difficulty degree of technical design in a case study and be able to estimate the necessary time for technical design in a project,
  • Will be capable to use the methodologies of technical design for the definition of basic elements, like distance, perimeter, area, slope etc,
  • Can work with his/her colleagues for the creation and presentation of technical plans in a case study, which include, apart from others, ground plans and plans and elevation of the technical work.
