The Engineers are a ground unit in Civilization II. Upgrading from Settlers, this unit works at double the speed of its predecessor and also gains the ability to transform tiles. These enhanced capabilities come at cost of 20 additional shields required to produce.
As technology progressed through the centuries, people began to specialize in a single skill or field of knowledge. The early pioneers who acted in the multiple roles of farmers, builders, and just about any other occupation required by their situation, were replaced by engineers specifically trained in a single discipline. Specialized training provided engineers the time and the skill necessary to accomplish feats of construction and environmental manipulation never before experienced in history.
