Course description and aims

Descriptive geometry is the science of method to project geometricl form on to planes.
This course will collaborate along side "Descriptive Geometry for Space Design1" and "Descriptive Geometry for Space Design2" aiming to teach the descripting technique of spatial figures and basic engineering drafting.
Two or Three quizes will be given during each class.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Use the descripting technique of spatial figure
2) Use Basic engineering drafting technique
3) Draw with beautifully and accurately by finding the right sollution.


Descriptive geometry, Graphics. Design, Projection, Architectural space, Drawing

Competencies that will be developed

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

Class flow

The class is opend every two weeks. This course is to examine the accurate solutions and techniques that based on the lecture and practice at "Descriptive Geometry for Space Design 1", "Descriptive Geometry for Space Design 2".

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend a certain length of time outside of class on preparation and review (including for assignments), as specified by the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Undergraduate Learning (東京工業大学学修規程) and the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Graduate Learning (東京工業大学大学院学修規程), for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
