FilledSmallSquareEngineeringForm[expr] prints with all real numbers in expr given in engineering notation.

FilledSmallSquareEngineeringForm[expr, n] prints with numbers given to n-digit precision.

FilledSmallSquare In "engineering notation" the exponent is always arranged to be a multiple of 3.

FilledSmallSquareEngineeringForm takes the same options as NumberForm, but uses a different default function for ExponentFunction.

FilledSmallSquare You can mix EngineeringForm and BaseForm.

FilledSmallSquareEngineeringForm acts as a "wrapper", which affects printing, but not evaluation.

FilledSmallSquare See The Mathematica Book: Section 2.8.7.
