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.
Additional abilities are unlocked as Experience is gained.
