The paper deals with the training specialists in the field of petroleum engineering ready to work in interdisciplinary teams and projects. The interdisciplinary approach including globally conditioned interdisciplinarity has been discussed in the context of engineering education since the beginning of the 21st century. This approach contains a number of basic components, namely: structure, process, language, identity, and technologies. The efficiency of interdisciplinary training depends on the general dynamics of a team. The international community has not disputed on the significance of interdisciplinary approach for engineers, but the key issue remains – how to apply theory to practice in both curricula development and learning process itself. Interdisciplinarity in the petroleum education is considered as a basis for critically new competitive engineering solutions. The indicators proving the presence of interdisciplinary management system at a university are outlined. Based on the elaborated principles of interdisciplinary activities a set of required tools and elements to manage the interdisciplinary training of petroleum engineers is presented.
