When the Danish polytechnical school opened in 1829 under University of Copenhagen basic sciences were given a dominant role. There was an uneasy and debated relationship between basic sciences and technical subjects. In this talk I will look into how the school dealt with this relationship and the practical executive issues up to 1929. Teachers invoked both the theoretical bodies and the methodology of the natural sciences in the creation of engineering knowledge systems reaching beyond fundamental sciences.
