Agreed, all developers should spend time with CS basics, and at the very least understand the data structures available to them, and how understanding the strengths and weaknesses of those structures helps them write better code.

As for research, I had been assured before signing up for the program that Flash and other deprecated technologies like .NET (YMMV on how deprecated that is.....) were being struck from the curriculum and replaced with newer tech, but 2 years later, ¯_(ツ)_/¯ was the only answer that the dept head had for me. Even with more updated curriculum, I would be deeply skeptical of most traditional college's ability to teach web development well. Software engineering is another matter since the tools don't move as fast.
