The aim was to entrust the implementation of community housing projects, the university and the engineering consulting firm acting designs. But this did not happen on a large scale. The division continued with the same functions to intensify the efforts of the previous request of the Bureau and its members’ wages for the business assigned were not included in the investment. Then it became an Engineering Section and it continued to do all the work required by the colleges, centers and institutes .It is currently divided into divisions and units of its own, although the nature and size of the business entrusted to it is so big. A proposal to the ministry is sent to re-structure it into a Directorate.
