* ''VideoGame/{{Anachronox}}'' has Dr Rho Bowman, who employs weaponized scientific principles in battle and is your go-to girl for any advanced devices that needs to be messed with.



* In ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'', having to manage nearly all aspects of running a fortress means you have to account for every element of logistics, from making/buying the equipment to building a defensible fortress, resulting in several support dwarves serving this role. And following the historical usage of the word engineer, you can have [[SiegeEngines siege engineers]] setting up catapults and balistae.

* Focused and Methodical, Vauban from ''VideoGame/{{Warframe}}'' is the Tenno's resident engineer, taking his namesake after the renowned french military engineer Marquis de Vauban. While his engineering prowess is [[InformedAbility seemingly informed]], he excels at defending a point, boasting a wide arsenal of traps that can stun, displace and even crush those who oppose him. Additionally, Vauban gains 25% additional armour for every friendly Warframe within 20 metres.

Note that this trope is about The Engineer as a particular type of character, not as a profession, so it would not actually comprise ALL that army engineers do. An engineer who deals with sanitation and construction of things like storehouses and office/administrative buildings would [[TropesAreFlexible usually but not necessarily be outside this trope]], and most characters referred to as "engineers" in media are actually closer in function to mechanics in the civilian field then they are to civic engineers. This trope applies primarily to Engineers as a palpable force in combat, be it as support or participating in battle.

* In ''KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'', T3-M4, as well as Bao-dur in the sequel. Bao-Dur in the second KnightsOfTheOldRepublic is a Tech Specialist (a class unique to him). His hit points aren't great, but he gets insane bonuses to his technical stats, making him very useful for slicing, droid repair, and most anything that isn't brawling or bluff.
** Bao-Dur's most obvious indication of his skill is his artificial arm, which he fashioned himself and which connects his hand to his upper-arm using a constant stream of energy. His technical genius is also a major plot-point, as he served under the Jedi Exile ("[[InsistentTerminology The General]]") during the Mandalorian Wars where much to his regret, [[spoiler: he designed the [[EarthShatteringKaboom super-weapon]] which ravaged Malachor V, ending the war once and for all.]]

* The "Trường Sơn trail", also known as the Ho Chi Minh Trail, was considered one of the deciding factors of the VietnamWar. This supply trail, largely located in Laos was maintained by a literal army of North Vietnamese combat engineers, supplying North Vietnamese forces throughout both North and South Vietnam. They kept the supply line in operation despite it being located in some of the most remote and inhospitable territory in the world and [[TheDeterminator getting nearly constantly air-attacked and assaulted by U.S Special Forces]]. Many--including the American NSA--consider it the greatest feat of combat engineering of the 20th century.
