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