- The cultivation of computational thinking is not a requirement of computer science, but an important part of general education in the whole university. Thinking cannot be restricted by professional. Students of different professional backgrounds have common characteristics in thinking problems, solving problems and dealing with problems. This paper discusses two unique properties of computational thinking, which can be used to explain and relate the world. These two qualities are the boundaries between computational thinking and empirical thinking and logical thinking. This paper theoretically expounds the connotation of these two characteristics and their position in computational thinking. At the same time, the significance and function of these two characteristics to computer science and computer engineering are further discussed, especially in Computer Engineering, which become the important theoretical basis and background, and influence the quality standards and development standards of engineering technology. Combined with the practice of teaching reform, this article puts forward that we should strengthen the understanding of this aspect in teaching contents.
