This paper deals with the issue of polytechnic education as a highly topical issue at the current stage of the socio-economic transformation of society. In the diachronic approach, paying attention to the concept of education with regard to the current and future development of society, i.e. the information society, and knowledge society, this article focuses on the transformation of the concept of polytechnic education as a result of the industrialisation and digitalisation of society, the demands on the professionalization and intellectualization of the manufacturing processes. With regard to the problem of social development in cyberspace, this study further considers polytechnic and polymetic education in the context of the application of digital technologies and with respect to the application of the dual system of education. This article also deals with the issues of supporting the development of a positive relationship to technology, taking into account the terms of readiness of the young generation for productive activities with the support of the creative relationship to reality.
