  • Purpose and learning objectives

    Subject element Technical Documentation deals with technical documentation with correct approval criteria in accordance with current norms and standards.

    Knowledge

    The student will gain knowledge about:
     the practice of the profession and the subject area as well as key applied theory and methods, including:
    o (1) structure and coherence in building a 3D model
    o (2) types of technical drawing and hierarchy in relation to subsequent application.
     practice and key applied theories and methods as well as the profession’s use of theories and methods, including:
    o (2) current standards and directives
    • technical drawing, line weight, layout of views and drawing layout
    • CE marking
    • common file standards for export to CAM (Computer-Aided Manufacturing).
    o (2) the complete technical dossier, its structure, purpose and scope
    • the importance of technical forms of documentation in a global and legal context
    • technical drawing as a means of communication.

    Skills

    The student will get the skills to:
     apply the key methodologies and tools of the subject area as well as the skills associated with employment in the industry, including:
    o (1) the use of 3D CAD (Computer-Aided Design) software in the construction of a 3D CAD model at part as well as assembly level
    o (2) the use of 3D CAD software in the preparation of technical production drawings in accordance with current norms and standards as well as subsequent application
    o (2) the preparation of illustrations based on 3D models and prototypes.
     assess practice-orientated issues and suggest and select possible solutions, including:
    o (2) application and assessment of commonly used IT tools for the acquisition of knowledge, data processing, documentation and presentation.
     communicate practice-orientated issues and solutions to partners and users, including:
    o (1) conversion of sketches, concept descriptions and design calculations to a 3D CAD model.

    Competences

    The student will learn to:
     manage development-orientated situations, including:
    o (2) the use of relevant software solutions for technical documentation
    o (2) the application of relevant standards and norms for the purpose of documentation in complex contexts.
     participate in academic and interdisciplinary cooperation based on a professional approach, including:
    o (2) management of essential parts of the technical documentation in an interdisciplinary development process while taking into consideration input and output from the other core areas.
     acquire new knowledge, skills and competencies in relation to the profession in a structured context, including:
    o (2) 3D modelling and documentation standards.
