My college CS program (late 70's) gave me the useful tools for learning new things. The most useful are OS theory, data structures, and state machines. It took being in industry to learn the basics of systems engineering (SE) . So I basically agree with you. The basic problem is time. The entire CS program would need to be engineered around making SE an integral part of the program. Meaning every class with a project starts with the SE process and carries it through the entire project, and the grades also depends on the SE process. Given what I know of academic departments, this is non trivial.
