There are Houses dedicated to almost any type of Science or Magic theory that someone has thought up. After a primary school is finished children are expected to choose one or a few of these Houses to dedicate their secondary learning to. When they finish this learning and ascend to Journeyman, they can become a resident worker that allies themselves to a House or form their own.
Duels are common, but usually non-lethal means are used, like their creations dueling each other; boxing or wrestling matches, etc. Sometimes sabotage of inventions is included in this dueling, but it is frowned upon by most others.
