Getting It Right: Conceptual Development from Student to Experienced Engineer
Christiansen, Frederik Voetmann; Rump, Camilla Osterberg
European Journal of Engineering Education, v32 n4 p467-479 Aug 2007
In an empirical study, the use of knowledge by two groups of students and a group of professional engineers' use of knowledge when solving complex problems was investigated. The applied method was adopted from similar investigations within the field of medicine. Qualitative analysis of problem descriptions, solutions and interviews show interesting differences between novice, intermediate and expert groups. Results resembling those found in medicine are reported. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
