This study has as objective the analyze of Knowledge Management based on the principles of Constructive Elements proposed by Probst, Raub and Romhardt (2002), and considering the Seven Dimensions of Knowledge Management described by Terra (2001), at Universidade Federal Fluminense , especially at Escola de Engenharia . This study intends to check if the possible actions of Knowledge Management are linked to the institutional strategy to develop organizational competences, as well as protect competitive advantages. It is presented a study on the administration and identification of positive points and the ones which need improvement. In addition, it is supposed to give the managers information to add value to future initiatives related to Knowledge Management. The work is concluded proving that the identified actions, although not intentionally formalized and defined as a mechanism of knowledge management officially instituted by the direction of the Escola de Engenharia , are, in fact, linked to the institutional strategy and can lead to the improvement of its processes and the development of organizational abilities, fortifying the Institution in order to get sustainable competitive differential.
