Learning outcomes: Knowledge Student knows the concepts, commands, drawing tools and methods necessary to create technical documentation for two-dimensional drawing (2D), consistent with the principles of engineering drawing standards for construction industry. Student is conscious of possible usage of the software in solving of graphically defined engineering problems. Skills Student is able to exchange project information as drawing files between members of the workgroup. Student is able to implement the software to solve graphically defined engineering problems. Student can create 2D drawings containing all the required elements (descriptions, dimensions, tables, etc.) in accordance with the principles set out in appropriate standards. Social competences Based on the acquired knowledge of the methods and tools of AutoCAD student is competent and a full member of a project team.
