I think this is an overly narrow perspective. 

NEU works with a lot of co-op employers (100s) and almost all of them care about high quality programming. Indeed, they forced NEU to re-train MS students when they enter because the typical NEU/MS co-op student wasn't as good as the undergraduates we produce. 

I am sure there are companies that don't care what kind of software they produce but there is a dearth of good programmers as far as our co-op employers are concerned.
