The Titanic Engineers' Memorial is a memorial in East (Andrews) Park, Southampton, United Kingdom, to those who died in the RMS Titanic disaster on 15 April 1912. The bronze and granite memorial was originally unveiled on 22 April 1914.

It features a bronze statue of Nike, the Greek Winged Goddess of Victory and carvings which represent the engineer officers of the ship, who died in the disaster.

The inscription down the center of the monument:
