When I consulted for a Florida University Computer Science
department, I recommended that they teach typing to their computer
science majors. I found PhD students in Computer Science hunting and
pecking their code into the computer. I documented that their
lines-per-code was limited by their input speed, not their coding
speed. I was told that typing was not academic enough to qualify as
a course for this particular university.
