The implementation of extremely large-scale design projects, often in planetary size of more.

Macro-engineering (alternatively known as macroengineering or macro engineering and as mega engineering) is the implementation of extremely large-scale design projects. It can be seen as a branch of civil engineering or structural engineering. In particular, macro-engineering is the process of marshaling and managing of resources and technology on a large scale to carry out complex tasks, whose direct results are visible even on a planet-sized scale.

In contrast to conventional engineering projects, macro-engineering projects are multidisciplinary, involving collaboration from all fields of study; they involve not only engineers, but scientists, lawyers, industrialists, soldiers and politicians as well. Macro-projects are usually internationa.

Macroengineering projects likely need the advanced usage of robotics, both for production and also for maintenance.
