Summary: The following paper shows the results of a study performed to a group of fifteen Industrial Engineering students, related to their Argumentative Text production skills in engineering related topics. In this research, thirty Argumentative Texts were analyzed according to their superstructure level, allowing the researchers to find the strategies and forms that the students tend to implement in order to structure this kind of texts. During the analysis of the essays considered as drafts, only one showed the correct and expected coherence of ideas related to the text’s superstructure, in this case: the correct topic’s structure, the essay’s main part and its final conclusions. Later on, the same students received training in the Argumentative Text basics, and were asked to restate their texts, where nine students could design their text according to the pertinent and expected elements.
