Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
CAD in CATIA - The Basics
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Industrial Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2013
Module code: WIBASc-525-625-Ing13
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
1V+1U (2 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 5
Mandatory course: no
Language of instruction:
Written exam

Applicability / Curricular relevance:
All study programs (with year of the version of study regulations) containing the course.

WIBAS-450/550-M2g Industrial Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2007 , semester 5, optional course
WIBASc-525-625-Ing13 (P450-0016) Industrial Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2013 , semester 5, optional course
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
30 class hours (= 22.5 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 90 hours (equivalent to 3 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 67.5 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be familiar with the working environment of the CATIA V5 software. They will be able to reproduce individual parts and assemblies on the basis of technical drawings and design or produce new ones in virtual space. In doing so, they will apply basic systematic procedures and develop their own systematics. Students will be able to use the software to produce standard-compliant individual part and assembly drawings.
