You're in luck! AutoCAD is coming back to the Mac OS! http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/pc/index?siteID=123112&id=15421056 You'll need a recent Mac with an Intel processor, though.

While I know that there is engineering software available for the mac, I am somewhat involved with engineers and out of the 20 or so that I know I can only think of 1 who uses a mac. But he even has a pc to run Autocad on. You should do some extensive research and find out what software you are likely to want to run in the next 4-5 years and see if it will run on a mac. It would be very limiting for you if you can not run the software you need on your computer.

For what kind of engineering? Electrical, mechanical, design and rendering, other...?
