It has the ability to become into a laptop anytime and is running Android 3.0 Honeycomb. A really good device in my opinion!
The Android NDK lets you run native C++ applications.
AFAIK there is no native IDE or compiler (aside from the Dalvik JIT compiler)
Tablets by definition don't have keyboards, so there isn't really any demand for programming.
Your university probably has a linux workstation that you can remotely access (mine does). So if you wanted to you could always do your programming work on the tablet then just SSH into the workstation and compile/run your code.
If you want to do that you're going to need an Android tablet, since the iPad is still just running a phone OS with tablet apps, and one does not simply SSH into Mordor
a remote server on an iPad.
You can also run linux distros like Ubuntu on Android devices. You need to use VNC to get the display but it does work...
That should at the very least get you access to the GNU compiler collection and a decent text editor.
