Engineering and the Mind's Eye
Eugene S. Ferguson
Publisher: MIT Press (MA)Format: Paperback
This essay demonstrates that good engineering is as much a matter of intuition and nonverbal thinking as of equations and computation. It argues that a system of engineering education that ignores nonverbal thinking will produce engineers who are dangerously ignorant of the many ways in which the real world differs from the mathematical models constructed in academic minds.
