In the age of modern technology and search for innovative solutions to technical problems, engineering education plays an important role. Supporting students in technical development, equipping them with specialized knowledge and skills is a key task for university and companies. Therefore, universities often offer a variety of internships and international exchanges. However, that involve time, financial or attendance constraints. Technical organizations allow students for flexibility in gaining professional experience during the study.

International technical organizations such as IEEE and BEST are an incredible opportunity for students to become involved in technical activities internationally. BEST-Board of European Students of Technology - brings together technical students from 32 European countries. Since 1989 help students with international communication, co-operation and exchange opportunities. One of purpose is the formation of a new generation of Euro-Engineers. Priority is to offer high quality services and bring all partners in the "student-company-university" triangle closer. BEST organizes conferences and meeting, engineering competitions, and executes projects such as: academic courses abroad, internships. IEEE-Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers - is the largest professional technical organization for people all world. For students, IEEE offers to create branches on the universities, which is a join to the community of technology and engineering professional, participation in conferences and workshops, publications in scientific journals, access to network platforms and educational programs. Affiliated with an IEEE engineer is value for employers. IEEE help with a career.

In this paper, the author present the international technical organization-IEEE and BEST, explain their role and importance for gaining experience and career development of a student. Then describe the research - participants were students and PhD students who are members or non-members of international technical organizations(90 students). Research shown that over 92% of students consider international organizations as a source of experience and a great start to career. The strengths are: contact with specialists, transfer of knowledge and access to news, possibility to participate in various programs, courses and practices. 95% indicated that their participation in IEEE / BEST facilitated their technical career and gained experience. 87% plan to continue to participate in the organization in the future. The most attractive form of exchange of experience in these organizations are: workshops and branch (55%), conferences (41%).
The creativity, professionalism and openness of international technical organizations is conducive to the development of the science-student-work relationship.
