Partnering With Engineering
The Engineering Division at the Berkeley Lab partners with scientific and operations divisions throughout the Lab to offer engineering expertise in support of individual and overall scientific missions. Although our primary customers are the Advanced Light Source and other Physical Science Divisions, we partner with other Divisions as well and seek to expand the breadth of our customer base.
Internally, we use a matrixing system to deploy engineering staff to other divisions, projects, or programs to provide specialized engineering support. This matrix approach allows us to maintain specialized multidisciplinary state-of-the-art expertise and accumulate transferrable job knowledge for increased efficiency and productivity. Additionally, this system minimizes resource fluctuations and supplies the Laboratory with highly capable experts who are able to execute assignments, projects, and programs with optimal efficiency and superior results.
