Abstract [en]

This study looks at two Swedish attempts at increasing the percentage of women in computer engineering education by changing the curriculum. One of the reforms concentrated on teaching methods and the other on creating a single-sex introductory class for women with a non-science background. The incentives for the reforms, the impact of the different institutional contexts, the role of the leaders as well as the needs and role expectations among the academic staff engaged in the reforms are discussed. The study reflects on the multi-faceted problems in changing a curriculum for the benefit of marginalised groups.
