Important to note that engineering majors at Harvard still have to take all of the core classes, so they are left with very few electives. This is very different than the curricula at technical schools, and is a double edged sword - Harvard graduates highly competent engineers who also have a liberal education, but it really limits the course offerings for students - my son was not able to take all of the classes he wanted in just four years.
ABET has loosened the chains a great deal over the past few decades.
