Engins is a French commune located in the department of Isère in the region of Auvergne Rhône-Alpes, formerly part of the ancient province of Dauphiné.

It is the obligatory passage from Grenoble, via Sassenage, to the northern Vercors, also known as the "Quatre-Montagnes". It is the most economically and demographically developed area of the massif. The village is well served by a road that connects it to the Isère valley and to the major cities of the region, including the nearby Grenoble area, and the Lyon area, where access to the motorway is less than 10 kilometres from the village.

Historically, the parish of Engins depended on the Lords of Sassenage, whose castle, now a museum, is situated below the cliffs of Engins at the entrance to the neighbouring commune of Sassenage. The commune is also one of the entrances to the Vercors regional nature park. During the 19th century, the first carriage road that opened up the Vercors massif passed through the territory of Engins (hamlet of Jaux), thus allowing the agricultural and forestry economy to open up to the outside world.

The municipality, which hosts the Berger chasm network on its territory, well known in the caving world, is incorporated into the Fontaine-Vercors canton created in 2014. It is also a member of the community of communes of the Vercors massif and its inhabitants are called the Enginois.
