Course description and aims

Descriptive geometry is the science of method to project geometric form on to planes.
The aim of this course is to improve the comprehension of space through the understanding of basic spatial figures with an accurate drawing technique.
The topics of this course are Point, Line, Projection of planes, Composition and Projection of curved surfaces, Development and Cutting of solid.
This course will be followed by "Descriptive Geometry for Space Design2" in the 3rd and 4th quarters.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) understand drawing techniques and methods.
2) comprehend space


Descriptive geometry, Graphics. Design, Projection, Architectural space

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

Lecture and practice quiz classes are held in turns.
Drawing exercises are provided to understand general techniques based on the previous lectures.
