2.93E5, or 2.95 times 10 to the 5th power.

The difference between "scientific notation" and "engineering notation" is that scientific notation generally has one digit before the decimal point and can have any exponent, while engineering notation uses exponents divisible by 3; so, 3, 6, 9, 12 and so on. So in "engineering notation", this number would be 293 times 10 to the 3rd power, or 0.293 times ten to the sixth power.
