The current state of the industrial system in the Russia of post-Soviet period is characterized by the re-industrialization. It is the main vector of the development and modernization of the Russian economy. Training of highly qualified engineering and management specialists of a new formation has one of the highest priorities in the list of activities to be implemented within the framework of re-industrialization process. The innovative industrial enterprises demand the specialists of combined engineering and economic profile who possess interdisciplinary technological and business competences and practical skills to work in the conditions of modern industry. This requires the development and realization new approaches in the training of such specialists at universities.
At present time, a significant part of Russian universities do not provide the needs of the national economy, because of, among other factors, the lack of possibility to train students using modern industrial facilities. At the same time the industry is vitally interested in well-trained professionals who are familiar with the new technologies and could work without additional instructions and teaching. In this case, the unique opportunity of professional training, meeting all the requirements of the labor market, is provided by high-tech industrial enterprises, equipped with sophisticated expensive equipment and organized in clusters with innovative universities.
This report proposes and describes an approach to the organization and development of educational technological clusters as the most favorable environment that allows training specialists of international level. Principals of educational technological cluster formation, combining the innovative enterprises and technological universities, are presented. It is confirmed that cluster approach allows maximizing the synergistic effect of interaction between the educational institutions and industrial systems in the process of re-industrialization of the Russian economy and training of competitive specialists of combined engineering and economic profile.
In our report we would like to share our experience of introducing this approach in the educational practice of leading Russian technological university.
