EXPERIENCING ENGINEERING DESIGN
The paper offers an anthropological view on engineering praxis, multidisciplinary research and science reasoning. The paper is based upon experiences from both student activities and the research in a classroom laboratory at NTNU. The aim of the paper is to show how a potent action research methodology, with experience oriented ontology as a foundation, developed in the meetings of disciplines and persons. The paper argue that engineering praxis is interesting to understand, not only by results, but as a praxis and a process in itself, and suggest that abduktive inference is an important and often neglected aspect of engineering praxis.
