If you would like to push further and have it for several years, you must consider the HP49G or HP50G certainly.

You make assertions but don't back them up with facts. Why isn't the Prime suitable for engineers?

Because of experience, studies, and my expertise.
It is just a point of view like another one. Feel free to buy an HP Prime of course, without considering it.

The HP Prime is good for high school and more. For Bachelor and master, it is more or less fine, sufficiently good of course.

Major reasons are functionalities, features, system (although CAS is more advance on HP Prime) which are considered,... It is important to have an efficient machine with numerous features, functionalities,... rather than a shinny windowing and user interface. There are of course cool apps on HP Prime, but it won't replace all the features, system and tools of the HP50G graphical calc. Let's say that you can't do half of what you can with HP50G.

Considering serious studies (fields biology, chemistry, computer sciences, engineering, as well geometry, mathematics, physics, surveying, weather sciences, trigonometry, statistics).

Naturally, feel free of choice.
