Mechanical Engineer

In english the "handasay" is also an "engineer" - by default.
To enphasize that the the "engineer" is a graduate in an academic engineerinmg faculty you add the B.Sc. (Bachelor in Science) or M.Sc. (Master in Science or Magister in Science (if he teaches))and there is the difference.
To use "Practical engineer" is not a mistake.
By the way I have both titles "handasay mechonot" from Yad Singalowsky Technical School- Tel Aviv, and "mehandes mechonot" (B.Sc.- Mec.) from the Technion Institute of Technology - Haifa.
