The target on the power unit is to run as much as possible and be reliable to allow the team to evaluate the chassis upgrades we will bring. How well did the car deliver in Canada, especially regarding the power unit? For the first time this season, we were able to see our whole package performing throughout the entire weekend.
What counts is doing it again and we have a great opportunity in France, our home race, to repeat that and deliver to the same level. We clearly have engaged with our season now, but we have more hard work to get through. This inbound trajectory was also sustained through the project work, which Arvid constructed as relevant to his engineering trajectory through a focus on the model metal cutter as aesthetically pleasing and well-functioning. Out of the four students, Arvid was the only one that commented on the actual themes of the projects and said that their decision to build a tool was not typical for the student group at large.
The case of Arvid demonstrates that inbound trajectories are not straightforward, even when all the elements for success are there. He was on an inbound trajectory into the engineering community that was helped by his orientation to the practical aspects of the program.
He was also aided by his ability to see beyond the simplicity of his group project, perceiving it instead as elegant and something to take pride in. In terms of his trajectory through his education, he — like Arvid — sought to balance the theoretical and practical aspects. He was, in a very concrete manner, able to make use of skills developed as an industrial mechanic and get recognized for those skills by his course mates. His experiences of working in the Industry provided him with a distinct vision of how a future as engineer in the same industry might play out, and he could imagine returning there in a different position: And then it had been kind of nice, actually, to return as a trained constructor and give directions to your old colleagues.
But you got to dream a little too. Calle constructed the choice of engineering as natural choice in that he had always been interested in technology. He suggests that he would have preferred to become an architect, but his grades were not good enough. Calle was strongly focused on the practical aspects of the engineering education; he stressed that he enjoys tinkering and considered himself as more well-suited for the Bachelor of Engineering Program than a Master of Engineering Program, given that he was much more interested in the practical than the theoretical aspects of engineering.
Despite authoring himself as passionate about technology, he did not construe the project work as integral to his engineering trajectory. Calle also deviated from the desirable engineering student by his single-minded focus on the practical aspects of engineering. Perhaps most importantly, though, it was his unclear vision of the future that contributed to his peripheral trajectory. He stressed the good possibilities for employment and how it would make a comfortable 8 to 5 lifestyle possible.
However, he had a strong sense of belonging in the engineering education community, which contributed to keeping him on a peripheral rather than outbound trajectory. In particular, his engineering student identity was centered around laddish behavior partying, staying out late, sleeping in and a bookish behavior would put this identity to risk.
Notably, Calle was simultaneously motivated to pass his courses since he noted that he otherwise could not afford his living costs nor finish the program so that he can have the comfortable lifestyle he is after. Yet he did end up in engineering education, hence, his trajectory into engineering was so untroubled that it does not render an explanation.
Like Calle, Danne enjoyed the practical aspects of engineering, but was also unable to connect the project to his engineering trajectory. Danne described their project as simple, but also said that he would not have wanted to do something complicated.

For him, the key to the project was the completion of the task and how the efficiency of the task completion could have been increased by dividing the work. The choice of the engineering mechanics program thus emerged as unproblematic for these students.

These participants saw their educational trajectories as enabling the possibility to make themselves intelligible in their childhood communities. However, the trajectories of the men in this study suggested that movement through the engineering mechanics program could be troubled in spite of this perceived naturalness. We found that the production of localized masculinities in the program confronted men with troubled forms of identity work.
In the following section, we discuss these masculinities, and the troubled identity trajectories that some of the students formed around them.
Emerging in the findings were two different local masculinities that construct a natural association between men and engineering in the EMP. In particular, we highlight two emergent masculinities related to the professional technical competence and to the student engineering laddishness. View all notes She has also pointed to machine-related skills and physical strength as being measures of masculine status.
In this study, we also observed a professional masculinity that was associated with hands-on competence.

In this respect, the homogeneity of the group becomes apparent; they come from similar backgrounds and they are also first year students. The latter could be of importance to the identification with the technicist masculinity; this is a cultural model readily available both within engineering and their childhood communities cf. Consequently, his negotiations around this masculinity more concerns the perceived perception of the engineering mechanics program than whether he is able to identify with it. Laddishness in the higher education context emerged in this study as a form of masculinity around which students do considerable identity work.
Here, we saw it emerging as a focus on alcohol in social settings, and jocular behavior in the classroom, in line with Jackson and Dempster. This construction of laddishness was appealing to some Calle, Danne but was troublesome for Arvid who did not participate in the social aspects of EMP culture.
The laddish attitude to education doing as little as possible regarding the project work, sleeping in, partying, etc. We noticed in our study that a laddish attitude prevailed in an educational context where the students claimed a passionate interest for the content. Ottemo has also shown how engineering students combined a passionate interest in technology with an instrumental approach to educational assignments. View all notes So it is un-surprising that some of the interviewed students were unable to enact this passion in the context of the project work despite a passionate interest in technology.
In a sense, an instrumental approach to the assignment was well-aligned with an authentic engineering practice, where dividing a task to increase efficiency often would be a preferred mode of work. An implication for engineering educations is that project work assignments need to balance the striving for authenticity which in this case might imply the students dividing the labor so that everyone takes on the tasks they are already most proficient at with challenging individual students. It capitalizes on a technisist masculinity that is also recognizable in their childhood communities.
Hence, skills and values from their childhood communities can be seen to function as capital in the EMP context, but also the other way around, skills and values developed during the EMP can function as capital in their childhood communities.

Introduction This article explores the identity work done by male, working-class students who participate in a Swedish mechanical engineering program. Theoretical framing This article is inspired by sociocultural theories of activity and identity, where identity is conceptualized as co-produced with social, material and cultural activities. Identity trajectories We conceptualize identity work over time as identity trajectories to investigate the manner in which students engage with discourses of engineering education and masculinity as they move through their academic programs.
