The Starfleet Corps of Engineers (SCE), also known as Starfleet Engineering or Starfleet Engineering Corps, is a Starfleet division that deals with specialized engineering problems.

The Corps' mission is to provide engineering services to Starfleet, including the following:
  • Planning, designing, building and operating civil engineering projects
  • Designing and managing the construction of military facilities for Starfleet
  • Providing design and construction management support for other defense and Federation agencies

Organization

Due to the extensive spatial volume of the United Federation of Planets, the Corps has a number of different divisions which maintain and service specific areas of Federation space. The Corps is organized geographically into numerous divisions and subordinate districts throughout Federation space. Subsequently, each district oversees offices directly in charge of projects as large as a colonial settlement, or as small as a single, temporary construction site. Divisions and districts are usually defined by Sector boundaries for civil works projects and military projects.

Research & Development

The Engineer Research & Development Center (ERDC) is the Starfleet Corps of Engineers research and development command. ERDC consists of several unique laboratories.

Research support includes:

  • Mapping and topography terrain analysis
  • Infrastructure design, construction, operations and maintenance
  • Structural engineering
  • Cold regions and ice engineering
  • Coastal and hydraulic engineering
  • Environmental quality
  • Geotechnical engineering
  • High performance computing and information technology
  • Spaceframe, Zero-G and Micro-G structural engineering
  • Theoretical Engineering
  • Holoprogramming and related engineering

Recent developments

Leadership

The SCE is led by the "Chief of Engineers," a staff officer at Starfleet Command. The CoE advises Starfleet administration on engineering matters and serves as the topographer and proponent for real estate and other related engineering programs. As commander of the SCE, the CoE leads the Federation's largest public engineering, design, and construction management agency. The current Chief of Engineers is Rear Admiral Hovin Goruth.

The Starfleet Corps of Engineers Headquarters is made up of an Executive Office and 17 Staff Principals. The Headquarters, located in San Francisco, Earth, creates policy and plans future direction of all the other Corps organizations.
