This should be a serious requirement (and I say this as a new graduate student in a top ten Computer Science school). The systems group that I am currently working in consists of guys who have excellent programming ability, but considering the scope of a project (its a joint research effort with another top-notch university), we're currently running into big bug issues because of two main problems with our project(IMHO)

a) Lack of a testing framework (this is not taught effectively in university level)
b) Lack of proper source control (again, only one very vague course in our university emphasizes this)...and its surprising to think how very few people at university level have a strong idea of source control

I feel that had proper attention and detail been given to these things, maybe we wouldnt run into these big bug issues...

Sorry if my English isn't very perfect!
