The paper raises the question of the necessity of implementing the supercomputing education in the leading research and technology universities. The paper discusses the experience of Russia in forming the national system of training high-qualified specialists in the area of supercomputing technologies, which might be useful for solving the problems of supercomputing education in other countries. This experience can also be taken into account in organizing the large-scale educational programs in other current areas of information technologies.
