Objectives of Programme's Learning Outcomes

  • Implement an engineering approach dealing with a set problem taking into account technical, economic and environmental constraints
    • Implement a chosen solution in the form of a drawing, a schema, a plan, a model, a prototype, software and/or digital model
  • Understand the theoretical and methodological fundamentals in arts, science, engineering and construction to solve problems involving these disciplines
    • Identify, describe and explain the basic artistic, scientific and mathematical principles
  • Communicate in a structured way - visually, orally and in writing, in French and English - giving clear, accurate, and reasoned information
    • Use several methods of written and graphic communication: text, tables, equations, sketches, maps, graphs, etc.

Learning Outcomes of UE

understand main methods used to describe curves, surfaces and volumes for engineering application (conical projection, axonometry, cylindrical projection and analytical modelling) understand technical drawing and use of standards (introduction to standardisation) use with ease a computer aided design software to model complex shapes, produce technical drawing and perform surface rendering model complex surfaces (cylindrical, revolution, conic, ruled) using analytical geometry solve planar and spatial geometric problems using analytical geometry develop space vision competence and solve spatial problems

Content of UE

descriptive geometry (cylindrical projections, axonometry, conical projection applied to 2D and 3D space including non-polyhedral volumes) and technical drawing  analytic, vectorial and differential geometry basis of computer graphics and surface rendering

Prior Experience

basic of geometry, algebra, calculus and trigonometry geometry tested during entrance examination
