Descriptive Geometry is one of the disciplines, comprising the basics of engineering education, aiming at providing students with the skills to make drawings both by hand and computer aided. It teaches the principle projection methods for representation of 3D objects on a plane, which enable the visualisation of solids as well as of whole sets of objects in construction and architecture. The three main methods of representing 3D spaces on a plane: Monge projection, axonometry and perspective are explained Students learn how to represent points, lines and planes in space, and their relative position. They solve affinity and metric problems. Plane figures, 3D objects and their plane cross sections are depicted. The correlation between the three models is identified.
