The international aerospace industry needs to hire specialists who possess a broad range of skills and are able to work independently in a diverse, multi-disciplinary team, generate innovative ideas, solve non-standard problems and make important decisions. To meet new challenges, universities promote active learning and encourage students to participate in research activities. This paper studies the organization of research activities at universities, and factors that benefit their productivity. It also presents the results of a short survey among bachelor students of the Institute of Non-Destructive Testing, Tomsk Polytechnic University, showing their interest and active participation in research work.
