It's really a shame that Universities nowadays do not even teach any systems programming languages anymore. Not even C++.


I'm going to be doing my 4th year of computer science at a major Canadian university this coming fall. My intro to algorithms course used C++. So did my computer graphics course, although most of the code I saw in that course was very C-like. Both computer systems courses I've taken used C. Granted, we were never explicitly "taught" C or C++, per se, beyond a bit of syntax. Students were expected to figure things out on their own, and from what I could see, generally did. The intro to programming course they gave to first years when I was in first year used Java, but they now use a dialect of Lisp. Java is only used for generic software development courses.
