I think it's hard to teach people how to write clean software. It's more a skill that is acquired gradually, both by seeing examples of good software and by writing software yourself, letting it "speak to you" as the saying goes, and being willing to refactor it even when it works. The largest piece of code I wrote in university was in assembler, something like 6,000 lines of code. In a high-level language, more like 3,000 lines. This doesn't quite prepare you for something that's far larger.
