Abstract [en]

This paper reports on experiences from a new combined engineering and teacher-training programme, run by The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and The Stockholm Institute of Education (LHS) in cooperation. We give a brief description of the structure of the programme, where integration of subject matter, didactics and engineering skills is a key concept. We describe the profile and the expectations of the student group; it seems that this programme to a very large extent has attracted students that do have a wish to work as teachers in science and mathematics, but would have gone for a traditional engineering education in the absence of this new opportunity
