Abstract
The development of new Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and end-to-end digital technologies has led to the advent of the Digitization Era at the present stage of development of society. Thereupon “digitization” is the basis for transformation of engineering education. It is analyzed the significance of interdisciplinary approach to the training of a modern specialist of engineering-technical type with a justification for the need for mutual integration of knowledge at the level of ICT and fundamental technical sciences by the example of the disciplines “Computer Science – Mathematics”, that is informational and mathematical modeling. The aim is to identify impact of Digitization on the theoretical and methodological foundations of an interdisciplinary approach in engineering education. Methods: it is used general scientific dialectic method, theoretical and methodological analysis and generalization of the content of informational, mathematical, pedagogical, methodological, scientific and technical literature in the field of engineering education. This allows to define the concept of integrated training task in Computer Science and Mathematics, complementing both the conceptual apparatus of the theory of learning tasks and interdisciplinary approach to the training of engineers. Results: it is formulated the concept of integrated training task in Computer Science and Mathematics. The concept is based on meaningful and activity approach to information and mathematical modeling. It is defined the typology of integrated training tasks in Computer Science and Mathematics characterized by the corresponding types of professional activity of technical engineers. It is substantiated the role of information and mathematical modeling as the main method for solving integrated training tasks. Conclusions: it is revealed the need for expanding interdisciplinary approach to the training of the “digital generation” of technical engineers in the conditions for the modern innovative economy of Russia.
