I am contemplating a project where there is not going to be access to ArcGIS Desktop and wondering if Engine and/or Server install ArcPy and Python? Is this possible? Does anyone have an example?

Python gets installed with every product level, and yes, arcpy is installed and will work in both, including things like map automation.
