Abstract. This article discusses implementation of a multi-disciplinary educational environment in the field of computer simulation as a tool to create conditions and to stimulate lifelong learning, creativity and intercultural competencies of future graduates of international double degree Master's programs of ITMO University, Russia and University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Teaching methods are based on the diversification of global academic and professional activities of master students by their immersion in group multidisciplinary research projects. Environment’s structure consists of the model of desired competencies of our graduates, which in turn is based on a generalized life cycle of the object of development, e.g. a mathematical model and its specifics in various subject areas. Along with professional and general cultural competencies, special attention is paid to the development of technological competencies for the efficient use of computing systems of different architecture and a variety of programming technologies, as well to the formation of creativity of the graduate.
