Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Descriptive Geometry and CAD II
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2017

The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
P110-0031, P110-0032
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
4VU (4 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 2
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Descriptive Geometry: Term paper Technical Drawing: Written exam (50%)  
CAD II: Term paper (50%)
Exam components can be completed individually and must each be passed separately.

BIBA241 (P110-0031, P110-0032) Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.04.2009 , semester 2, mandatory course
BIBA241 (P110-0031, P110-0032) Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2011 , semester 2, mandatory course
BIBA241 (P110-0031, P110-0032) Civil and structural engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2017 , semester 2, mandatory course
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 120 hours (equivalent to 4 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 75 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):

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.
