Learning outcomes:
_ After successfully completing this module, students will have acquired basic knowledge about the representation of three-dimensional objects in two dimensions and developed their spatial visualization ability.
_ They will able to represent three-dimensional elements by hand in two dimensions.
_ They will be able to calculate the true length of distances and angles in any position and shape by hand, as well as calculate areas and volumes.
_ They will be able to construct special components and structured plans with the help of a CAD system.
