Increased attention is paid to the formation and development of universal characteristics of future specialists in the process of training at the University due to the integration of different types of their professional activities. In terms of scientific and technological progress, it is natural to assign a leading role to engineering activities, which includes the design, construction and creation of innovative objects of the material world. At the same time, the requirements of the world community and employers to future engineers have increased, which, along with the leading function, require a number of socio-cultural knowledge, skills and qualities, among which legal ones occupy a special place. Legal culture of a specialist is an integrative education of a person, which allows to realize their professional rights and obligations within the legal field.
This work is aimed at presenting the results of the study of legal culture of future engineers, which was determined by content analysis of the opinions of teachers of legal disciplines and graduates of engineering specialties of the same University, and subsequent comparison with the requirements of potential employers. The analysis of the results showed a significant difference between the indicators of formation of legal culture of specialists and the request of high-tech enterprises. In conclusion, the prerequisites of the results are analyzed and possible solutions are proposed.
