The paper presents the experience of integration of Ukrainian technical universities and industry as well as its role in creation of a modern model of an engineer. In practice, it means cooperation between leading technical universities of the country and national and international businesses in the areas of innovative medium development, designing and realizing scientific, technological and educational projects.

The authors analyze prerequisites for crucial structural and economic changes in Ukraine resulting in the situation when employers will compete for highly qualified university graduates motivating them by grants and scholarships, new bases for practical training, providing innovative medium for realization of promising ideas. The demand of Ukrainian society brings about the necessity to develop an up to date educational system.

The mechanism of interaction between students, instructors and employers that creates favorable conditions for building a modern model of an engineer has been elaborated. It is emphasized that highly competent specialists and enhanced well-being of society are grounded on innovative methodological thinking of university graduates.
