engineering Branch

Engineers are highly specialised technologists, responsible for the maintenance and repair of critical ship systems and the operation of the vessel's power generation and distribution systems.

The engineering branch has one of the widest range of specialisations, reflecting the number of systems aboard the vessel - engineers are responsible for maintaining the systems used by other branches.
