Polish term or phrase: inż. vs. dr inż.
Tłumaczyłam to po prostu jako:

- Adam Kowalski Eng. (inżynier)
- Karolina Kowalska MSc, Eng. (magister inżynier)
- Maciej Kowalski PhD, Eng. (doktor inżynier, jeszcze zazwyczaj habilitowany, ale tutaj już żadnego angielskiego skrótu nie ma)

Tymczasem na dwujęzycznej stronie politechniki widzę coś takiego:

- Prof. dr hab. inż. Maciej Kowalski -->
- Professor Maciej Kowalski PhD, DSc

Jeśli chcą DSc to po co jeszcze PhD? I jak w takim razie przetłumaczyć samego inżyniera (jeszcze nie magistra), żeby to wszystko razem do siebie pasowało?

Na stronie inżynierami się nie chwalą, piszą tylko o "undergraduate engineering level".

These are approximations anyway. There is no true equivalence between two educational systems.

A Bachelor of ScienceM (Latin Baccalaureus Scientiae, B.S., BS, B.Sc., BSc, or B.Sc; or, less commonly, S.B., SB, or Sc.B., from the equivalent Latin Scientiae Baccalaureus)[1] is an undergraduate academic degree awarded for completed courses that generally last three to five years, or a person holding such a degree.[2]

Whether a student of a particular subject is awarded a Bachelor of Science degree or a Bachelor of Arts degree can vary between universities. For example, an economics degree may be given as a Bachelor of Arts (BA) by one university but as a BS by another, and some universities offer the choice of either.[3] Some liberal arts colleges in the United States offer only the BA, even in the natural sciences,[4] while some universities offer only the BS even in non-science fields.[5] Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service awards Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service degrees to all of its undergraduates, although many major in humanities-oriented fields such as international history and culture and politics.

North America
In Canada, Mexico & the United States, It is generally a four-year undergraduate degree typically used in engineering, computer science, mathematics, economics, and the natural sciences. Many universities are starting to offer accelerated 3-year BS programs.[11][1
