I used the Matlab Engine for Python a lot last fall, without any trouble. I just tried to reuse my old code today and I get the following error:
>>> import matlab.engine
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "/Library/Python/2.7/site-packages/matlab/engine/__init__.py", line 59, in <module>
raise EnvironmentError('The installation of MATLAB Engine for Python is '
EnvironmentError: The installation of MATLAB Engine for Python is corrupted. Please reinstall it or contact MathWorks Technical Support for assistance.
I am on MacOSX 10.11 (El Capitan), using Python 2.7 and Matlab 2015a. I reinstalled the Matlab Engine twice already, but no difference, I still get the same error.
Looking at the ini.py file, it seems that the line that fails is the following, yielding the error copied here:
>>> pythonengine = importlib.import_module("matlabengineforpython"+_PYTHONVERSION)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/importlib/__init__.py", line 37, in import_module
__import__(name)
ImportError: dlopen(/Applications/MATLAB_R2015a.app/extern/engines/python/dist/matlab/engine/maci64/matlabengineforpython2_7.so, 2): Library not loaded: @rpath/libpython2.7.dylib
Referenced from: /Applications/MATLAB_R2015a.app/extern/engines/python/dist/matlab/engine/maci64/matlabengineforpython2_7.so
Reason: image not found
I have read a similar question where the answers pointed towards an issue with the libpython2.7.dylib HERE but I'm not sure I understand the solution. I can see the libpython2.7.dylib file in my /usr/lib/ folder.

I just removed the matlab folder from my site-packages folder and did a clean install of the engine. I still get the exact same error message.

The error message "Library not loaded: @rpath/libpython2.7.dylib" means that the Python library is not found or it is incompatible.
Would you try the solution that you already found?

Oh but wait, this table is just for Matlab in general, right? Matlab 2015a works fine on my computer right now... Why would the Engine not work if Matlab does?

What the version of Python? Python Engine from MATLAB R2015a works with CPython 2.7.12 from python.org on Mac OSX 10.11.

I highly suggest you to reinstall your Matlab. It works for me after I reinstall my Matlab and upgrade my python to the newest version (cause I have done these two things at the same time so I can't tell if both are needed or only one of it is needed).
Hope it works for you. :)
