At the second stage, the authors propose to distribute the contact work as follows: 60% for theoretical training and 40% for production-based. The final stage is devoted to the evaluation of the of the dual education system implementation effectiveness. The model was tested for the Novouralsk Institute of Technology — branch of the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI. The study presents a stage-by-stage description of the model and examines examples of the education dual form positive effects at the university, as well as considers emerging “noises”.
