Abstract: 
Problem and purpose. The paper substantiates the rationale to use empirically approved mnemonic techniques in developing the foreign language communicative competence in the professional field in students of the industry-related non-philological higher educational institution. Representation is given of the experiment conducted at the Siberian Transport University that was aimed at studying the impact of mnemonics application on embracing and perceiving specialized professional information in a foreign language as well as anticipating ways to improve such teaching techniques by means of digital educational technologies. The purpose of the study is to determine efficiency of mnemonics used by both students and teachers in the build-up of professionally-oriented foreign language proficiency as well as to identify the most effective relevant technologies and provide argumentation in favor of their implementing in practice. Methodology. The research is based on analysis and systematization of related theoretical and applied psychological-pedagogical and methodological materials, study of student research works, student questionnaire-based surveys and generalization of benchmarked teaching practices in higher education. The conclusion is made on the use of mind mapping as a productive method to acquire profession-related information in the development of algorithms for learning both foreign languages and profession-related courses.
