The Maker Hub is the College of Engineering's space for design, prototyping and fabrication. The 16,000-square-foot facility, located in the Klages Center, consists of a variety of work spaces designed to support the educational, humanitarian and professional design aspirations of the College of Engineering. These spaces include a 24-station computing lab; eight meeting rooms with 48-inch monitors; a wood shop with a large computer numerical control (CNC) router; a metal shop with a CNC milling machine; a welding shop; a paint booth; a prototyping lab with 3D printers and laser cutters; and a PCB fabrication lab.

These spaces surround an open configurable collaboration space known as "the Hub," a 6,000-square-foot area used by students representing a wide range of majors. It is equipped with workbenches and a variety of tools and equipment such as sewing machines, mobile computer stations, electronics lab equipment, and a large vinyl cutter.
