Since then the Sibley School has grown to become one of the largest academic units in the University. Currently housed in Thurston, Kimball, Upson, Grumman and Rhodes Halls, the Sibley School is home of the mechanical engineering (ME) B.S. degree program as well as graduate programs in the fields of mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering (AE) and theoretical and applied mechanics (TAM).
