Innovative approach to the formation of complexes of control of the educational process on the economy of high technologies

Innovations in the nuclear industry are inextricably linked to economic evaluations of new engineering solutions. To improve the economic literacy of students of engineering areas of training at NRNU MEPhI, an innovative course on the economics of digital design and engineering in the nuclear industry has been implemented since 2016. The structure of the interdisciplinary course is modular, which makes it possible to involve in the teaching activity specialists who are most competent in the respective areas of training. To increase the involvement of students, a software and hardware complex has been developed, which provides through the wi-fi classroom system a permanent online contact of the teacher with students. During the lectures, students respond in real time through their gadgets (smartphones, laptops, tablets, etc.) to 5 questions on the materials of each specific lecture, and during the workshops – solve about a dozen problems in the explanations of the teacher also through gadgets. This at the end of each lesson allows the teacher on his laptop not only to have a list of responses of each student to the second, but also to adjust the subsequent sessions to the understanding of certain aspects of the course. The work of students in the network allowed even as a creative task to develop a technological package «Nuclear technology-2035», showing a promising vision of the development of the domestic nuclear industry. In 2016-2020, more than 1400 students of various engineering specialties were trained. Statistical processing of the results of the control of the educational process allows us to make preliminary conclusions about the abilities (giftedness) of students to certain activities described, including in the course materials. Software and hardware complex can be used for other educational programs, which, depending on the subject area of study allows you to form a kind of «digital portrait» of each student
