Within the Federal Educational Standards 3+ and stricter employers’ requirements, there is an issue of new engineering thinking for Bachelor students’ development. A training complex based on “subject-to-subject” interaction should be developed. This dialectal dependence can be solved with the systematic organization of specialists’ and bachelors’ professional competences development, where practical application, team-work, and peer learning are dominant.

The study intends to enhance the level of professional competences development of students in engineering universities. The results are: (1) project learning technology based on “subject-to-subject” interaction via group problems solution which provides development of professional knowledge and skills; (2) relevant methods and stages of project fulfillment tailored for a certain industry has been grounded; (3) it has been proved that group project fulfillment is necessary and important for learners’ immersion into the future profession; (4) a method of “Sparring-partnership”, used at practical classes and lectures, has been developed; (5) the conditions for ecological group projects have been stated as key ones for Tyumen region in terms of “Innovations in oil and gas refining cluster. Technology. Ecological compatibility. Safety”; (6) methodology of interactive methods application aimed at professional competences development via combination of different activities has been suggested.

We applied theoretical, empirical, and experimental methods.

Key results: aspects of engineering education modernity, importance, and its social and cultural role have been described; interactive methods (Sparring-partnership method, project method) have been developed and incorporated into the disciplines of the basic and variable part of the main professional educational programme (MPEP).
