Technical Drawing and CAD

Students are assumed to be able to produce orthographic drawings using engineering software such as AutoCAD when they begin.

Course limit: 45 students due to size of computer class. If the limit is reached, students who
do not have this course as a mandatory part of their curriculum in the given period and year may take the course via independent learning using the available online resources.

Essä, rapporter, produktioner och portfolio


-Submission of the "Introduction to SolidWorks Tutorial" (10%)
-Submission of individual assignment Design of a Chair (90%). Note Urkund will be used to analyze these reports for similarity. Correct scientific writing skills are a very important consideration in the assessment. It is not based on just the engineering design work.
-There is no compulsory attendance of lectures for this course. Although attendance is recommended, students may choose to complete all work entirely individually also.
-Passed assignment marks can not be improved by resubmitting marked reports.
-Previous year's assignments are not valid.

50-59 Grade 1 Satisfactory
60-69 Grade 2 Satisfactory
70-79 Grade 3 Good
80-89 Grade 4 Good
90-100 Grade 5 Excellent
