The article is aimedat revealing the content of the design of educational technology of research and organizational activities of graduate students in higher military education. Research methodology is to use the analytical method. The result of the studyis a designed educational technology of research and organizational activities of graduate students. Educational technology is designed to develop methodological competence in the context of their postgraduate training. The practical significance of the study is the description of educational technology that represented a certain structure and was ready for use. This allows to uncover all the main characteristics and is possible for mass reproduction in practice. The novelty of the work lies in the fact that the author first proposed the concept of educational technology of research and organizational activities of graduate students and the mechanism of its design. The conceptual basis of the technology is in providing post-graduate students with practical experience of research and organizational activities by simulating the organization of activities of a smaller constituent order in the context of the dissertation research. This means that the process of writing a thesis can be represented as a set of organizations of activities from creative activity to public approbation. When a post-graduate student conducts dissertation research in the framework of the research school, all post-graduate students form a temporary research team. Technology here acts as a main contractor of the thesis throughout the entire period. Technology contributes to positive development of social skills of PhD students. The process of target setting and orientation is described, namely: to develop skills in planning and organizing research based on the methodological activities; occasional monitoring of the timeliness of these types of operations of a post-graduate student at the control points; constant self-control by the student over the timeliness of performing these types of operations; formation of labor discipline among the post-graduate students in the process of implementation stages and report the results of checkpoint supervisor, as well as the meeting of the Department (laboratory) at the dates of the annual reporting (attestation). The position of a post-graduate student in the educational process is defined, namely: the organizer of dissertation research; the chief executive (similar to the procedure of the research).
