There are 3 chances why you are not able to see Database engine there:

1. Installer is present in 2 CDs and you are viewing the second CD which will not have Database engine within it.
2. You have the installer available and under SQL Server installer, there would be 2 folders named Servers and Tools.
If you choose Tools, then it will list only these Client tools and Database engine will not be listed.
3. Or someone have removed Database engine related components from the installer you are using.
