The engineering division provided two essential services on which the rest of the establishment depended:

This division provided all the necessary engineering services required by the research worker and equipment designer. There was a Main Workshop equipped with modern machine tools and Specialised Workshops. The workshops were staffed by highly skilled technical personnel capable of producing novel engineering techniques to satisfy the mechanical requirements of scientific teams. It also had a Drawing Office, and an Illustrators section. The Engineering Services also had its own Research and Development programmes on power units and on other general engineering fields, which included mechanical engineering, the installation of equipments in vehicles, also packaging and the suppression of electrical interference and radiation.It also controlled Publications and Photographic sections and an Environmental Engineering section.
