I am under the impression that university's purpose is to
give the student tools to learn and appreciate knowledge and
not necessarily educate and train a student for some
practical task (or a set of tasks).

If you end up leaving university without being able to self
learn and to appreciate knowledge then you probably missed
the whole point.

Of course, having a respectable degree is a big plus too
when you want to show your credintials
