Evaluation of grades

The module is not graded (only study achievements)..


Students gain basic knowledge about the use of professional IT solutions for three-dimensional Computer Aided Design (3D-CAD) and its possible applications in design tasks. Starting from sketches, the basic functions for geometric modeling in two and three-dimensional space are covered. Subsequently, students learn how to create assemblies from individual components. Interactive exercises and tasks are based on the established design methods of direct and parametric modeling. Thus, the acquired knowledge can also be transferred to the application of other CAD systems and thus be used in a more general application context.

The module itself takes place on one to three of the following CAD software systems, depending on the semester plan and availability. The exact combination, which CAD systems is offered in English language can be seen in the Olat course.

  • NX (Siemens)
  • Creo (PTC)
  • Catia (Dassault Systemes)
  • Onshape (PTC)
  • Inventor/Fusion (Autodesk)

Competencies / intended learning achievements

Students are able to
  • perform computer mechanical design tasks using geometric shapes, CAD methods and identify design problems
  • use basic functions for drawing creation, convey structured design process, use of standard parts and model exchange (model export)
  • apply different solutions and strategies for a design problem
  • apply theoretical knowledge from previous courses on the subject of component design in practice
