The paper describes the concept of Elite Engineering Education Programme (EEEP) adopted by Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) that provides prospective students with additional training aimed at improving their general and professional awareness and developing their capability to adapt to the current highly volatile engineering environment. The paper states and focuses on the tasks for developing and implementing the Programme that include developing the EEE concept itself, creating a student selection system and a teacher selection system, and designing a programme that allows its students to meet the requirements of the modern engineering labor market. An overview of the system currently operational in TPU is provided, and the current composition of the program's curricula is presented as a table. A conclusion is made reasoning the EEEP as a viable means of attracting talented students into engineering.
