SYSTEM OF DUAL TRAINING OF ENGINEERING PERSONNEL FOR KNOWLEDGE-BASED ENTERPRISES AND HIGH-TECH INDUSTRIES
Keywords:dual form of higher education, system of dual education, higher education institutions, aviation engineers, high-tech industry
Background. Nonconformity of training of qualified engineers for high-tech companies with the requirements of high-tech manufacturing industries in Ukraine.
Objective. The purpose of the paper is to develop a three-stage system of dual education for Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute and companies “Boeing Ukraine” and “Progresstech-Ukraine” that will be focused on efficient trainings of future technicians to solve applied engineering and technological tasks for the above-mentioned companies.
Methods. Analysis of successful cooperation of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, “Boeing Ukraine” and “Progresstech-Ukraine” aircraft corporations in the sphere of implementation of higher education concepts using dual form of education.
Results. It is shown that the implementation of the dual education for graduate students, where theoretical studies are augmented by solution of applied engineering problems will boost the number of high-skilled engineers available for hire by hi-tech companies. The advantages of dual education for both sides of recruiting process are discussed. It is noted that the implementation of dual education in universities has a complex multi-level structure, where the role of the instructor and the teacher should be treated as one of the most important one. A recent success in the cooperation between the Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, the “Boeing Ukraine” and “Progresstech-Ukraine” shows the advances and the achievements in higher education driven by the dual education strategy.
Conclusions. System analysis of engineering and technological problems of aviation companies of Ukraine showed that the qualification of the graduates does not meet the requirements of high-tech companies. Therefore, the main goal of a multi-layer dual education, that was jointly developed by Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, “Boeing Ukraine” and “Progresstech-Ukraine”, is to train qualified specialists for the solution of everyday practical and technological tasks that are common for “Boeing Ukraine” and “Progresstech-Ukraine”. Cooperation of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, “Boeing Ukraine” and “Progresstech-Ukraine” was launched in 2012. Since that time, more than 130 Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute graduates have become engineers of these corporations. Joint dual education master’s degree “Dynamics and Strength of Machines” was certified by European Network for Accreditation of Engineering Education (ENAEE). The broadening of the three-level system of dual education offered by Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, “Boeing Ukraine” and “Progresstech-Ukraine” to the multi-disciplinary level has a good potential and will be beneficial not only for the educational institutions but also for the high-tech companies.
