Course detail

Engineering Drawing Fundamentals

FSI-1K-KAcad. year: 2023/2024

The course provides theoretical and practical knowledge related to reading and creating of an engineering drawing documentation in terms of imaging, dimensioning, accuracy of size, surface quality, geometrical accuracy, function and interchangeability, selection of material quality and semi-finished product. Attention is also paid to the overview and selection of standardized functional and technological elements, basic machine components and assembly units in terms of function and drawing documentation.

Entry knowledge

Students are expected to have only knowledge acquired at secondary school.

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

The subject is completed by taking an exam after the credit has been previously awarded.
The credit confirms that the student actively participated in the work during the semester and obtained at least 50 points out of the maximum number of 100 points. Evaluation criteria are participation in exercises, development of graphic works (programs), tests and work assignments.
The exam determines the comprehensive mastery of the material defined in the subject card and, in particular, the ability to independently apply the acquired knowledge. The exam consists of a computer test with multiple-choice and production tasks. The degree of mastery of the issue is evaluated in the range of 0 to 100 points. The student must obtain at least 50 points out of a maximum of 100 points.
The resulting classification is according to the ECTS scale.
Attendance at seminars is mandatory and controlled. It is not necessary to compensate for absence from max. two seminars.


Graduates will be able to do a design drawing documentation, apply dimensional and geometric accuracy including the appropriate surface roughness with respect to production, measurement and interchangeability in production and assembly.

- Knowledge of imaging, dimensioning, dimensional and geometric accuracy, surface quality, choice of material, semi-finished products and standardized elements of machine parts.
- Ability to apply the acquired knowledge within doing a drawing documentation of components made of moulded semi-finished products regarding their function and interchangeability.
- Ability to read drawing documentation and understand the technological processes needed in the production of basic engineering components.
