I understand that you would like to install the MATLAB Engine, but you do not have the administrative rights on the computer.
Howerver, Installing MATLAB Engine would require the user to execute the command in the administrative mode.
python setup.py install
You could refer to the following documentation for more information on installing MATLAB Engine API for Python: Install MATLAB Engine API for Python - MATLAB & Simulink (mathworks.com)
