Abstract: In this paper, I present a case study of a student becoming an engineer to highlight the ways in which women become engineers. Drawing on theories of situated learning and feminism in engineering education, I analyze the gendered practices of engineering education. My analysis suggests that the construction of gender in engineering education has implications for how engineering learning occurs, resulting in implications for both engineering education and learning theory more broadly.
