This regiment was formed by the amalgamation of nearly all of the Danish military engineering corps into one regiment in 1997, simply named Ingeniørregimentet. The core of the Danish combat engineers are the so-called armored engineers. These units usually work in detached squads, each under the command of and attached to an infantry company, and equipped with an M113. Their roles are combat demolition, minefield clearing, basic mine laying and EOR. They are also extensively trained as infantry, to support the ordinary troops in combat. Besides these units, the regiment has the different work fields of combat engineers (construction, EOD, CBRN) spread out over different companies.
