The article is devoted to the problems of training highly qualified personnel in the specialty of “Space Geodesy”. The solution of geodetic fundamental problem, i. e. studying the shape of the Earth and its gravitational field, based on using tools and methods of space geodesy allowed in a short historical period to obtain results of high accuracy. This created an opportunity by the beginning of the XXI century to make a breakthrough in terms of studying the dynamic processes taking place in the bowels of the Earth. The achieved results were obtained through training highly qualified personnel. In the Soviet Union, Moscow Institute of geodesy, aerial photography and cartography engineers (MIIGAiK) became the first higher education institution where training in the specialty “space geodesy” was carried out. Graduates of MIIGAiK in this specialty have made a significant contribution to the development of domestic space geodesy. The analysis of the problem with training in the specialty “Space Geodesy”, which is overdue to date, leads to the following conclusion: in order to solve the fundamental problems of modern geodesy using space technology, it is necessary to return to the system of training engineers in space geodesy and navigation with a training period of 5–5,5 years, taking the trends in the development of modern space geodesy into account.
