Maybe I have read too much thedailywtf.com but that doesn't apply to everyone in the field... Formal training might lead to at least some things which are helpful for coding. Like thinking is there better way to do do something (standard libraries...) and is the way really efficient...

Still for CS major I would expect at least some very basic experience, the stuff don't even need to be overly complex with more modern languages like Python.

There is some fields which don't require it, but for others I think at least some grasp of actual process would be very helpful.
