Subject fundamentals
The basic language of all engineering activities is represented, in the majority of cases, by design processes that involve the engineer in two distinct activities: modeling and communication. In areas such as systems design and analysis, industrial plants and processes, which are typical fields of automotive engineering, the engineer uses technical drawings in order to identify construction solutions, carry out design calculations, and perform a technical-economic comparative analysis of the various solutions. In this sense, technical drawing is not a merely graphical exercise, but becomes a synthesis of the engineer's expertise about a product which must respect economic, manufacturing and functional specifications.
Today technical design is a document to communicate all information of an industrial component with the main objective of its manufacturing.
Expected learning outcomes
The student will be expected to acquire the ability to representing and dimensioning the most common industrial components, taking into account their functional and manufacturing requirements. as well as interpreting unambiguously and correctly drawings of parts and assemblies.
The module therefore intends to provide undergraduate engineers the knowledge and methodologies necessary for components modeling and graphic description, in accordance to national and international Standards.
Prerequisites / Assumed knowledge
Basic principles of orthographic representations.
- Introduction to technical drawing
- Technical Standards: drawing conventions
- Orthographic representations, Sections
- Functional geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, surface roughness
- Mechanical parts: fastening and joining. Threaded fasteners, definition and standards. Standard pins, retaining rings. Threatening systems: screws, bolts, studs and nuts. Bearings, belts, pulleys and gears
- Computer aided modeling and drafting
- Modeling and drawing of industrial parts and assembly.
Delivery modes
The exercises consist of graphic representations (so traditional and through computer aided design software (CAD)) of mechanilca parts and assemblies. The components must be represented in the most appropriate way indicating dimensions, tolerances and roughness. The functional dimensioning method is recommended.

Assessment and grading criteria
The final examination consists of a graphical test and an evaluation of the drawings carried out during the course. Students can only take the oral test if they achieve a rate of at least 18/30 in the graphical test. Students cannot take the examination unless they have completed at least 80% of the technical drawing required in the course.
