The article considers the possibilities of using massive open online courses (MOOCs) to build professional competencies of engineering students. Engineering online courses delivered on international educational platforms are studied. The criteria for inclusion of MOOCs in the list of courses recommended for integration into the training of future engineers at university are given. The integration models of these courses are generalised. The positive aspects and difficulties of MOOCs integration are given. It is concluded that MOOCs are efficient for usage in teaching foreign language for specific purposes.
