    I would say that you could use sentences 2, 3, 4, 6, and 7. They would all mean the same thing.

    However, I would suggest changing "popular" to "common" because it seems odd to talk about engineers being popular. "Popular" means well-known and often it can mean well-liked. "Common" means that it's found often.

    If you wanted to use the word "popular," you can say, "The most popular field of engineering in China is civil engineering."

     

    In China, the most popular engineer is a civil engineer.

    In China, the most popular engineers are civil engineers.
