I follow the installation process for Matlab engine API explained in:
I use Matlab R2020a, Spyder4(Anaconda3)/Python 3.7 distributions in my Windows OS.
I managed to install the library in the default folder
C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2020a\extern\engines\python\build\lib\matlab\engine
But when I run the following command in Spyder
import matlab.engine
it returns an error:
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'matlab'
Could anyone please tell me what am doing wrong?

That page states "You might need administrator privileges to execute these commands." Do you have administrator privileges?

Yes I do. Sorry I re-wrote my question as I realised the point you mentioned. Now I managed to install the engine, but cannot call it from Python. Would you have any insight to it?
