Background. The concept of engineering education modernization taking into account the needs of the labor market sets the problem of specialists training quality improvement on the basis of introduction of a competence approach to training at all levels of the education system. Therefore, the problem of this study is to consider aspects of technical university students’ professional competence formation within the physics course. The purpose of the study is to reform vocational training in the framework of the competence approach and to provide competencies with specific content based on the integration of fundamental and professional orientation in composition, methods, forms and means of education.
Materials and methods. At the present time, one of the priority goal of the educational policy to switch from the knowledge paradigm to the competence approach. Various aspects of the competence approach to learning have been discussed by E. F. Zeer, John Raven, G. K. Selevko, M. A. Kholodnaya, A. V. Khutorskoy, V. S. Shishov, B. D. Elkonin and others. L. V. Vasyak, V. V. Gorodetskiy, N. A. Kraevaya, I. V. Ovchinnikova and others have researched the problem of future engineers’ professional competence formation.
Results. The study has revealed that the formation of professional competence should be based on fundamental and professional orientation of education, integrated in each section of a studied discipline, in order to consistently develop the required engineering knowledge based not on abstract concepts, but on examples related to the future professional activity of the student, taking into account scientific and technical progress.
Conclusions. The conceptual foundation of physics is the link between physics and technology (technosphere), which is most important in formation of technical university students’ professional competence, because deep fundamental knowledge of the physical principles of modern technology allows professionals to find and apply the most effective, in specific economic conditions, technological processes, and the formed professional competence will undoubtedly serve as social protection for the student-future engineer.
