I generally agree with others that have posted by trouble-shooting is a way of looking at the world and breaking it down into manageable parts. However, one can't trouble-shoot what one doesn't understand at some medium to deep level. Surface understanding won't cut it. That's why universities don't teach debugging - the students are too new to really go there in any serious way.

But universities should do better.
