Abstract [en]

Engineering education and narratives told about engineers’ roles in society are study objects at the heart of organizational studies discussing professions and how engineering ideals are narrated, institutionalized and moulded into practices and categories of knowledge and skills. This study engages with the topics of educational mission of universities and university-industry relations as transfer activities by raising a set of questions about engineering narratives and university rhetoric of academia-industry relations.
