      In order to more fully meet the needs of Lenawee County students and regional manufacturers, SMCSI is opening an East Campus on the campus of Tecumseh High School, allowing students the same access to the mechatronics curriculum as the students in the Hudson site. The SMCSI program will be a partnership between the SMCSI and Tecumseh Public Schools, located on the campus of Tecumseh High School.

      The Amatrol Mechatronics curriculum is a curriculum developed by and for industry and uses industrial components in all of its trainers. It provides a skills-based, interactive technical learning curriculum. It is designed to engage high school students as they learn critical science and mathematics concepts. It incorporates the use of CTE instructors that have modern manufacturing experience. The SMCSI expansion will allow for partnerships with key industry leaders that provide guidance, thousands of dollars of supplies and hundreds of thousands of dollars towards equipment.

      High school students will use a project-based curriculum that is focused on integrated technology concepts. The program will require students to integrate multiple technologies such as; mechanical, electrical, telecommunications, control, and computer technology to solve predesigned project goals. During this process they will learn critical workplace skills that will prepare them for the team-based, problem solving approach utilized in modern manufacturing facilities.

Funding & Incentives

Tecumseh enjoys a proactive business environment and has been recognized multiple times by the University of Michigan eCities program for its entrepreneurial climate. The City of Tecumseh has a history of working with businesses to provide them with the tools they need, including property tax abatements, Brownfield incentives, job training initiatives and other resources to help businesses grow.

  • Michigan has reinvented the incentive process. Instead of offering tax credits that may provide future savings based on jobs and investment targets, MEDC has programs that provide immediate benefit. Couple these innovative programs with a low 6% Corporate Income Tax and the proposed elimination of the Personal Property Tax, Michigan offers one of the best pro-business environments in the country. Each year, $170 million is available in incentives and assistance. Plus, $100 million is available in loans to small and midsize businesses.
