Abstract

To meet the global labor market requirements and to be able to contribute to the economical development of the mother country a contemporary engineer should enlarge his/her general outlook and be socially and professionally mobile. In order to be ready to be employed by the international European companies, the students alongside with acquiring the specialized engineering competences have to be familiar with the common characteristics of the European markets, to be competent in cross-cultural professional and business communications and to share European values. The new original academic course “Psychology of Professional Success” aimed to contribute to the engineering students’ participation in the International European projects was introduced to some engineering curriculums. Empiric study showed that the course as a part of a comprehensive system of educational measures to train global engineers is efficient and helpful.
