Formation of horizontal links mechanisms between university professors and industrial enterprise employees as the basis of the engineering personnel training system

The article analyzes the problematic issues associated with the increased needs of the labor market for highly qualified engineering specialists, in the context of the practical skills and other competencies they acquire during their education in technical universities of the country. A new approach is proposed to enhance the practical orientation of the training of engineering specialists, based on the formation of horizontal links between university professors and specialists from industrial enterprises

Keywords: higher educational institutions, industrial enterprises, training of specialists, horizontal connections, effective form of interaction.
