Abstract: The relevance of the problem under consideration is caused by the existing discrepancy between the increased need of society and the state for high quality engineering education, and the actual level of readiness of graduates of engineering universities to perform their professional functions, as well as insufficient development of the theoretical foundations of students training in research in the context of competence-oriented education. The purpose of the article is to solve the problem of training students for the research activity in the course of independent work and research during the educational process at engineering university. Based on the systematization and development of existing approaches to solving the problem of training of students of engineering universities for research, which contributes to the development of a functional model, the authors propose the method of preparing students for research. The article describes the development of practical experience in research activities during the participation of students in scientific seminars; represents the process of using the project method, end-to-end research tasks when preparing the course and qualification works; the issue is considered on consolidating and improving the experience of research activities of future engineers during all kinds of practical training. The pedagogical experiment was aimed at identifying the effectiveness of independent and research work in the course of formation of students’ readiness for research activities in the framework of the functional model. The materials of the article can be used by the academic staff of engineering universities, specialists in the field of pedagogy, theory, and methodology of vocational education, as well as in the system of extended education.
Keywords: Engineering education, Research activity, Readiness for research activity, Project method, Research tasks.
