[Samba] subfolder sharing with "valid users"

I'm currently using the following smb.conf file so that everyone can browse any subfolder without a login prompt under /engineering. (I have neither AD-based nor Winbind-based authentication now)
Even, as long as the UNIX permission is 777, anyone can write onto some folders somewhere down under this folder.
workgroup = Engineering
netbios name = smb1
security = share
path = /engineering
available = yes
browsable = yes
writeable = yes
guest ok = yes
readonly = no
Now I need to tighten the per-folder security so that I grant access for select users per folder.
Under the /engineering folder, I'd like to have different combinations of security:
/engineering/electrical (want this readable by everyone)
/engineering/electrical/ee140 (want this to prompt for username & password per user)
/engineering/electrical/ee150 (want everything under this browsable and readable by everyone)
That is, how can I make it such that the top-level folder (/engineering) is still readable (w/o login prompt) by everyone and only some select subfolders prompt for login/password?
Thank you for your answer in advance!
