Few CS courses have the luxury of hiring industry experienced people. Look at the ad which was on gamesindustry.biz for Abertay for about 12months. (dunno if its still there). Im sure theres loads of ads like these knocking about.

Lets face facts like. Its tough enough to get an experienced games coder teaching in a Uni course. Why would they learn all these games programming techniques for a couple of years and then leave and go teach entry level people with the salaries lecturers get? I’m not sure exactly now what games programmers get paid but it surely beats a lecturers salary? Working in a development team is going to be much better financially wise not to mention being heavily involved in the thing you spent so long learning in the first place.
