The question is heavily generic.

Classification of engine can be in any manner - Automobile/Aerospace/Space, Diesel/Petrol, Single cylinder/multi-cylinder, Jet engines, Turbo-fan.....The list can be quite huge. If you can be a bit precise, it will be helpful

Modern vertical marine engines once were called "inverted".  That was because screw propellers came after paddle wheels and the cylinders of paddle steamers were below the paddle shaft - or Inclined.
