Windows Server 2012 Beginner – File permissions and security

Windows Server 2012
I am a complete beginner with server 2012 and I'm trying to give a test user permission to access ENGINEERING shared folder, but not ACCOUNTS shared folder. I also want all users to be able to have complete admin control over their own machines (to install software etc). Their machines are joined onto a domain controller.  The problem is I can only seem to allow them to install software if they're setup as admin on the domain controller, but I need to restrict what folders they can access. Hope that makes sense? Any help appreciated!

    For many admins, it's considered a best practice to provide full control /read & write permissions to shares & then use ntfs permissions to further restrict access if necessary. Simply grant a user or group full share permissions, which would not restrict any access. However, if necessary then allow only read rights on the items in the shared folder, you would use ntfs permissions & grant just read rights. This is basically a theory based, not discussing the practical way as assuming you know the procedure.
