Historic Mechanical Engineering Hall, connected to Management Hall and enclosing a central courtyard, houses the Owen School's Executive MBA program. This Victorian building was constructed in 1888 to house Vanderbilt's fast-growing engineering program. It was the first building in Tennessee built specifically for engineering. As a sophomore engineering student at Vanderbilt in 1953 I took machine and welding shops in this building.
