"MORE PRACTICE, LESS THEORY," SAY SOFTWARE COMPANIES
Software companies say American universities are turning out students with
little practical training applicable to the real world of software code
writing.  "There's no reason why a class can't build a whole operating
system in a semester.  But that rarely happens," says an Oracle Corp.
senior VP.  But educators contend that a broader approach is more
beneficial over time: "Employers encourage students to get very narrow,
very deep experience that meets their company's current needs, but in the
long run breadth is better," says a computer science prof at the University
of California at Berkeley.  The University of Illinois is experimenting
with letting 10% of its computer science majors tackle a commercial project
during their senior year. (Wall Street Journal 2/21/95 B1)
