Gender and information technology (English)
This thesis discusses how the education in the Master of Engineering program can change to become more into line for the students needs, especially for the women, both directly in the education situation and later in their occupational roles. This is done using a gender perspective. Both the education and the occupation today is characterised by masculine norms and values. The education lacks gender perspective and is created by men, for men. The thesis gives concrete proposals on how to change two existing courses to better fit the students. Some of the most important changes are to make the goals of the courses more accessible and visible for the students, make sure that both men and women occurs in teaching positions and have course literature written by women as well as men.
