"The Empire's engineering branch is tasked with constructing garrisons and other structure of strategic value, including ore mines, power generators, and space stations."
Admiral Wullf Yularen, Imperial Handbook: A Commander's Guide[1]

The Imperial Engineering Corps, also called Imperial Engineering or Imperial Corps of Engineers, were a corps of engineers in the Galactic Empire's Military. They were responsible for building operations for the military, such as constructing bases.


"It was Imperial Transport who brought you there, Imperial Supply who arranged and provisioned that house for you, and Imperial Engineering who built the camouflaged island landing site for your use."
―Grand Admiral Thrawn[2]

Engineering's constructions included the Imperial Ore Facility on Raxus Prime and the Raxus Prime Imperial Shipyard in orbit of Raxus. The latter used metal collected from the surface to build Star Destroyers and was mentioned to be the most important construction project undertaken by the Corps at the time, around 2 BBY. The Engineering Corps also searched out for obedient alien populations to act as laborers.

In 9 ABY, Grand Admiral Thrawn mentioned to Joruus C'baoth, the mad clone of Jedi Master Jorus C'baoth, that the Corps was responsible for building him an island on the planet of Jomark.
