The Value Potential of an Engineer in a High-Tech Environment and Digitalization of the Economy
Keywords:higher education, value orientations, engineering activity, high technology, digital economy
The article examines the socio-philosophical aspects of the formation of value orientations of modern engineering personnel in the context of high technologies and the digitalization of the economy. We analyzed such philosophical concepts as: “value”, “value orientation”, “engineer”, “engineering”, “technical culture”. Particular attention is paid to the consideration of the social functions of engineering in modern society. The mechanisms of the formation of value orientations of future engineers in higher education are considered. The conclusion is made that in conditions of high technologies, the functions of engineering activity change. In particular, the predictive function of the engineer is increasing, as well as the requirement for his social and environmental responsibility. The process of forming the value orientations of the future engineer is particularly influenced by social, humanitarian and philosophical education, which contributes to the interiorization of information about such values that are necessary for successful professional and civic activities: life, health, morality, peace, preservation of the environment, professionalism, communication, humanism.
