Abstract

The role of identity construction in learning to become an engineer is explored through the examination of ethnographic interviews over the course of four years and video data from group-work in engineering senior design projects. Focusing upon engineering students' identity development within the figured world of engineering we trace the development of trajectories of identification. We focus upon what can be traced over time along trajectories of identification in becoming an engineer.
