Boot Camp is an easy-enough way to bring Windows 10 to your Mac. But it's not always the best option available, so when forum user misupakanunu asked about using it for their engineering work, I had a pretty good idea of what to recommend.
Looking into those engineering tools you mention, I see that their requirements vary and can start out very low. I take it that they can become quite intensive, however, so you're wondering if your MacBook Pro is more well-suited, as that machine (likely) sports a 6th Gen Intel CPU, as opposed to the 5th Gen model on your HP laptop.
As someone who has used Boot Camp to get Windows onto a Mac, I have enough experience with this to ask a follow-up that will decide my answer
How much space is free on your MacBook Pro?
If you've got its hard drive even half full, realize that you're going to start to run out of space once you put a Windows 10 installation on that system. And after you install those programs into the machine, I'm pretty sure you're going to be running out of space.
A lack of space will make running Boot Camp (and macOS) a pain. I know, because that is a probIem I ran into while trying to run Cuphead via Boot Camp on my MacBook Pro.
So, unless your MacBook's sporting a sparsely laden hard drive, your best bet is to upgrade your PC. Maybe check first to see if those programs can run on that PC without the upgrade. I'm not sure what HP laptop you have, but I hope it's easy to customize.
