The paper addresses the training of specialists in civil engineering, having skills in project activities and advanced design techniques. Including technologies for the design of facilities, taking into account environmental norms and rules of nature management. Teamwork skills are one of the important competencies of a modern specialist. The paper describes ways to implement students’ teamwork in the training process at universities. It is shown how collective training techniques are introduced to the training process of engineering students. The author notes the importance of further development of project-based learning for the training of specialists in civil engineering, architecture and other engineering fields. It is also noted that the accomplishment of assignments — and not only individually but also in micro-groups — often adds a competitive aspect to the process, helps reveal leadership skills, and makes it possible for students to fulfill themselves at their best and demonstrate their talents. Collective assignments always require thinking outside the box, looking for unconventional solutions, and make students have an open mind. The paper also addresses matters of developing the graphic culture in students during their training and highlights the importance of the graphic culture in the training of highly qualified specialists.
