No. Permissions may only be set  at the Web Application (by policy),
site collection, site, list/library, or list item/document level. There
are ways to only display certain Content Types via views and/or audience
targeting, but this isn't really security.

I have a document library called "project document library" and it contains 8
different content  type.I want my engineers to only view only 2 of the content
types . How can i set  it ?

As i tried i only found a way where : i can create two different library's and
separate the content types.But i asked to create the content types in same
library and restrict engineers to see the content types.

Is there a way to do it?

SharePoint doesn't allow us to manage permissions  for a content  type... I would
say.. try and create a jquery function and add it to the page... to look for
that content type  and hide it.. I am just putting an idea.. I am noit sure if
you can do it that way...

Hi, if you have still this requirement try the ContentType Permission for SharePoint 2010 / 2013 from Solutions2Share. There you can control who can create a content type.
