Career path offers certain bonuses towards specific play-styles in space and ground, character roles are not very rigidly defined in Star Trek Online, and any character may fly any ship, wear any uniform, and equip almost any item.
Engineering officers are best suited to the Healer and Tank roles. Engineers wear the color gold for their uniforms and are ideally matched with Cruisers of Federation and Battle cruisers of Klingon Empire, which are also best suited for tanking. Tanks take the brunt of damage in battle and try to attract all enemies to them, while the DPS or Damage players do the majority of the actual firing and damage.
Roles and Unique Traits of Engineers for STO Credits
As healers, Engineers are adept at healing hull damage, although they also have strong shield healing. Their focus is primarily on survivability and resilience in space combat, while supporting their Away Team in both space and ground combat with fixed-position automated weaponry, shield and medical generators, technological buffs, and other repairs and improvements.
In ground combat, engineering kits generally involve fabricating turrets and shields, supporting your team with weapon buffs and seeker as well as support drones, and laying mine barriers and bombs.
