Methods and structure of the study. The study was carried out at Moscow State Industrial University. The article presents the peculiarities of work of the Physical Education Department, organized in accordance with the requirements of the FSESHE.
Results of the study. The authors note that according to the requirements of the Federal State Educational Standard 3, the multiyear (2012-2015) educational process resulted in a positive increase of the students’ physical fitness rates. In view of the transition to training within the FSES 3+ that happened in 2015, the algorithm of operation of the Department changed: the academic discipline was divided into two parts, the volume of classroom hours decreased, the funding was cut, which negated the effectiveness of work of the Physical Education Department.
