Definition of the noun utilisation
What does utilisation mean as a name of something?
noun - plural: utilisations
- the act of using
- examples: Education is the acquisition of the art of the utilisation of knowledge. | As science advances as some describe it, into itself, - by creating technology which is then subsequently of a higher complexity than the ideas it is to help explain - complications often can arise, such as a need for higher education for those who utilise it. This may not be a negative complication in itself, but gives rise to another problem: that this causes education about the subject's fundamentals to be sacrificed for the training in the utilisation of ever changing technology.
