I am a graphic designer and have never heard of engineering format, I presume its like setting the currancy (£, $)
This came up in Google and I would also suggest using the search function in the user manual for more information:

not quite -- engineering notation is like scientific notation but only multiples of 3 are allowed as exponent values ie 1e-3, & 1e6 not 1e4 or 1e7. There is nothing in the documentation nor google that shows that this is possible. In excel, you simply use the formatting code ##0.0E+00 and you're done.

Hi, there is a small trick to engineering notation in Numbers:
You need a excel spreadsheet that has a cell in engineering notation.
Open it with numbers, copy the style and paste it into the cells of your spreadsheet and there you have! :O
I hope it is useful.
