Open your inventory, and look in the upper-right corner. There is a checkbox with a label that says something like "Reverse Engineer"

Click the checkbox, and everything that can't be reversed will fade out, and everything that can be will still be bold.

Then hover over the item you want to RE. The tooltip will tell you if you have a chance to learn a schematic by reversing it. If there is nothing to learn, it will tell you so in red, and all you will get will be some materials.

Note that you can only RE items in your crafting skill (e.g. Artifice can RE hilts and enhancements, Synthweaving can RE light armor, etc)
