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)
