The problem of modernization of federal state educational standards, which no longer meet the requirements of the sphere of labor, is considered. It is proposed to use a common approach to the training of an engineer and a bachelor of engineering and technology, whose competencies are reduced in a broad sense to the ability to research, design and manage. The general professional and professional competencies of a graduate of this field (specialty) should be formulated in the main educational program of each university. It is recommended to develop educational standards for the levels of training for the relevant fields of activity (science, technology, pedagogy, medicine, etc.). The need to improve the management system of training for the modern economy is shown.

Key words: professional education, educational standard, educational program, competencies, quality, management.
