You are the head of the Engineering Department, which includes not only Station Engineers, but Atmospheric Technicians as well. Essentially, your job is to boss your staff around and make sure the power and air flows.

You are expected to do everything you except from your average Engineer and Atmos Technician (if you haven't completely blanked out on that part of the training). You also will handle more sensitive matters such as but not limited to fixing sensible areas such as Bridge, the Vault, other heads offices. Your special tool belt gives you the Jaws of life, Drill, Experimental welder, a full stack of LV cables, and a Multitool.

In your locker you can find even more useful gear such as Advanced Magboots, CE hardsuit, Oxygen Canister, Engineer door Controls, CE stamp, breath mask, insulated gloves, and a jetpack that can fit in your suit storage.


It is VERY easy for CE to go fix everything. You have the best tools, move the fastest, and you have great boots that don't slow you down. Don't be the only person to respond to issues. Your engineering team is here to help you. Issue with atmospherics? Send an Atmos Tech to go bring a scrubber on it. Power outage? Have your engineering team respond to it.

Be a leader, not a boss. Lead your crew in repairs, but let them do it. Don't just take everything onto your shoulders.

At the start of the shift, it's very likely that you may have gaps in your department or new guys in your department. Make sure you can pick up the slack in the meantime for those departments and spend some time teaching the FNG before they walk into a spaced area.
