Engineer is a specialization assigned to Kerbonauts. Engineers can repair broken parts with repair kits and repack parachutes. They also greatly affect the efficiency of Resource Harvesters and Converters on the craft they are aboard. Bill Kerman is the engineer of the Original four - he "builds" stuff.

Since 1.11, all engineers are able to access an EVA Construction Mode allowing them to place parts stored in storage containers or move existing parts in EVA.


Additional abilities are unlocked as Experience is gained.

Level Effects provided Harvesting/Conversion Multiplier G Tolerance
☆☆☆☆☆ EVA Construction Mode 25% 1x
★☆☆☆☆ Repack parachutes / Repair parts (>= 1.11) 45% 1.1x
★★☆☆☆ Repair lander legs (<= 1.10.1) 65% 1.2x
★★★☆☆ Repair wheels (<= 1.10.1) 85% 1.3x
★★★★☆ None 105% 1.4x
★★★★★ None 125% 1.5x

Note: with no engineer aboard a craft its production rate multiplier is 5%.


  • Engineers can enter EVA contruction mode, level 1 engineers can repair broken parts with repair kits.
  • Added G force tolerance
  • Changed the resource drill boost mechanics.
  • Engineers can boost the speed of resource drills at the cost of safety.
  • Initial release
