Computer Aided Design
This course aims to give students the basic knowledge to design domestic electrical installations. Students will develop their work based on current legislation in the areas of electrical installations, supported by AutoCAD software. Lightning project will be addressed with the support of dedicated sotware.
It is also our aim that students acquire knowledge about drawing orthogonal projections of an object, as well as the three-dimensional object reconstruction from orthogonal projections, based on rules of technical drawing, supported by AutoCAD software.

The concepts and techniques are explained by the teacher in the classroom.
In practical classes students will test their knowledge by executing practical work supported by computer aided design software.
- Execution of 5 individual works for evaluation. The work with the worst classification will be excluded. The final grade, which must be greater than 9.5, will be equal to the arithmetic average of the remaining 4 works.
The classification in the course is only obtained by doing practical works.
