The article discloses a study on the identification of multidisciplinary master degree majors, which interest potential employers and students in Russia. Results of the initial phase of the research project conducted at Tomsk Polytechnic University are presented. The study focuses on collecting raw data from two categories of respondents: potential employers (industry representatives) and potential master students (4th year bachelor students of engineering majors, TPU). The respondents underline the demand for double major master programs and rate reasons for studying two majors. The study proposes particular pairs of master programs that should be harmonized on the latter stages of the project. The importance of the research lies at the root of communicating modern issues and requirements of industry and society with the responses provided by universities, i.e. the quality and relevance of students’ professional training.
