of TPU students in compliance with SEFI requirements

O.N.Imas, E.G.Pakhomova

There are two experimental educational programs in Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU): Electrical Engineering, elaborated in accordance with Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) requirement and Computer Engineering, elaborated for approbation of ECTS. Mathematical part of engineering education of TPU is discussed. The requirement for level of mathematical education of engineering first-year students and second-year one, declared by TPU, and real knowledge of them after finish of basic courses are considered. Mathematical part of Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering curriculum are compared to SEFI-MWG requirements.
New experimental elite technical educational program which started in 2004 is considered. It is made a comparison of the mathematical part of a new experimental elite technical educational program and Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering programs. Merits and demerits of mathematical engineering education are analyzed.
A role and a place of basic of mathematical disciplines for master's degree programs elaboration is discussed. Experiment in development of parallel deep basic courses in particular mathematics of TPU is represented.
