    Question Engineer with 's on end of word?

    Hi,
    I have a question. Are these correct sentences?



    1. The engineer's studies at the Department of Information Technology, majoring in Computer Networks chosen by Mr. Jan Kowalski conclude with preparation of engineer's thesis and engineer's exam.
    2. The title of the engineer's thesis prepared by Mr. Jan Kowalski was: [title].
    3. Mr Jan Kowalski, having defended his thesis and passed the engineer's exam conducted by the Examination Board, obtained the engineer's diploma and engineer’s title.


    Thank you in advance.

    In all cases I would replace "engineer's" with "engineering".

    I agree with bhai, but I would also suggest getting rid of a couple of "engineering" uses. It is repeated so often, it becomes tedious.
