Optimal design of teaching process in higher school is realized to a considerable extent intuitively or on the basis of expert evaluations. Such an approach allows to achieve an approximate solution of the problem only. The experimental study of the teaching process and learners’ characteristics, computer-aided technologies of statistical processing of experimental data, computer simulation of the educational process, computer analysis of simulation results are proposed as methodology of this problem solution. This curriculum design is prominent for the logical project development of education, the content areas of each course, and for the professional qualification. Other opportunities of using this procedure are linked with the development of a new and modifying existing curriculum.
