This paper presents an observation of the positive experience obtained by Kharkov State Technical University in the area of education specialists for the development of an information society programme. Economic problems postponed the beginning of the information society programme in Ukraine. Nevertheless, Ukraine now has good possibilities to apply the best experience of western universities and speed up the process of transferring existing education to the European level. The paper also presents an analysis of the main trends that are taking place in that education. The paper uses the example of one of the leading Ukrainian technical universities to show the possible ways of positive changes in education in the framework of developing the national infrastructure of Ukraine. The examples show how the universities’ sciences can be involved in large-scale transEuropean projects connected with problems of the global information society.
