Abstract

Engineering education tends to be more and more attractive to Russian students in response to the growing demands of the labor market in this area. However, there is a serious problem of high percentage of drop-outs during first year of study in STEM courses (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) and mathematical disciplines are the most typical reason for that. This problem is addressed by international TEMPUS project MetaMath whose aim is modernization of the Russian education system in accordance with international trends and Russia's cultural and educational traditions as well as needs of business and industry. The purpose of this chapter is to describe research results and analysis of modernization experience of educational programs based on the produced methodology.
