Knowledge in Engineering: A View from the Logical Reasoning

Edgar Serna M. and Alexei Serna A.
Abstract—It is accepted widely that the work performed by the engineers fundamentally consists in detecting, identifying and solving problems, but most of the educational systems and related subjects seem to ignore the need of educating students for the development of logical reasoning in order they can properly perform this function. This article reviews the concepts of logic, abstraction, problem solving and logical reasoning, which are described and analyzed like a functional need for engineering and its professional application, by considering the requirements of today’s Information and Knowledge Society, and making a relation fitted to the educational processes of current and future engineers.

Index Terms—Knowledge, logic, engineering, logical reasoning, problem solving.
