Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim is to get an idea of the importance of technical documentation as an international means of communication of technicians. The aim is also to develop the imagination of technicians, logic and creative thinking of students. Graduates acquire basic knowledge and skills to read, use and creation of technical documentation and also learn to express their ideas graphically. They get acquainted with leading software systems for the creation of project technical documentation in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


Technical documentation is a means of applicable to communication the result specific activities for wide range of people, mainly workers of development, research, design, construction, production, including the use of ordinary users of the device. The connecting links to enable an understanding of the technical documentation for a wide range of workers are agreed signs, symbols, descriptions, rules for the use, creation and drawing diagrams and terminology contained in the standards. It's actually documentation of information and of activities for all participants realized project. The reason for the introduction of uniform technical terminology is intelligibility and clarity of interpretation. A means for its implementation are of international standards, including technical terms and definitions in several languages.
