Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will:
_        be familiar with the basics of CAD, technical drawing, spatial representation and architectural presentation.
_        have basic knowledge about topics from the field of descriptive geometry, such as: types of perspective, shadow construction, rules and methods for technical-constructive drawings, simple constructions for floor plans, views, sections, representation standards.
_        be familiar with the basics of producing technical drawings by hand, the standards that must be complied with in this respect and how to implement them using CAD applications for architectural work.
_        be able to represent objects geometrically and spatially and understand the complex and theoretical principles of different projections.
_        be able to apply different types of perspective to spatial designs.
_        be able to apply this knowledge to other design tasks, both in the presentation of their concepts, designs and their technical implementation.
Personal competence:
_        Students will train their ability to present results in digital form and in large formats.
_        Students will train their ability to think and act in a conceptual, creative manner.
