The main problems associated with teaching physics to future bachelors in technical areas of training are considered. These include the insufficient level of basic readiness of freshmen, necessary for the perception and assimilation of natural science and professionally oriented academic disciplines, low motivation of students to study physics, lack of time allotted for classroom activities. In modern conditions, to improve the quality of physical education in a technical university, a reasonable differentiation of the content of teaching physics is proposed, which is most important for the development of general professional and special disciplines in a specific direction of training, the formation of the competencies of graduates provided for by the Federal State Educational Standard. Successful assimilation of the selected educational material is possible as a result of the implementation of the “flipped learning” model in the educational process.

Key words: technical university, academic discipline, physics, training content, the method of matrices logical connections, the model of “flipped learning”.
