Was talking to a friend about this recently. I agree that the ICT curriculum in the United Kingdom is terrible, would probably be better teaching word processing and stuff like that as part of other courses given the cheapness of computers these days that isn't an impossible realisation. Personally I study Electronic and Electrical Engineering but have many friends over in the comp sci department. Oddly I reckon only 1 in 3 want to program. Some want to do what I do, others want to manage. Fortunately for them Aberdeen in the UK is full of oil businesses desperate for project managers and engineers and through my work experience it is very common to find computer science graduates in both roles. From what I understand they generally get the roles by demonstrating the skills necessary from group software development to apply to projects. So there is plenty of work for the programming hating computer science students out there.
