Explanation: If Mr. Schmidt holds a degree analogous to a master's degree, Mr. Schmidt, M.E. (master's inengineering) or M.S. (master of science) are the best American equivalents, although this would sound a bit self-aggrandizing to an American audience. If he holds a degree analogous to a Ph.D., then Dr. Schmidt, or [first name] Schmidt, Ph.D., are better.

Explanation: This would be the correct way in the US.
Where there's a title incl., the Mr. is dropped. Plain grad. engineer is a bachelor of science (B.S.), Diplom-Eng. is Master of Arts (M.A.), Doktor is Ph.D. (Dr. of Philosophy). Construction falls under mechanical engineering, for which the official abbr. is mech.eng. (no word space)
