Military Engineering

A military engineer is a soldier whose occupation involves military engineering. According to NATO, “Military Engineering is that engineer activity undertaken, regardless of component or service, to shape the physical operating environment.” Military Engineering incorporates support to maneuvre and to the force as a whole, including military engineering functions such as engineer support to Force Protection, Counter – Improvised Explosive Devices, Environmental Protection, Engineer Intelligence and Military Search. Military Engineering does not encompass the activities undertaken by those ‘engineers’ who maintain, repair and operate vehicles, vessels, aircraft, weapon systems and equipment.
