        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 function under the general supervision of Hudson Area Schools, located at Tecumseh Schools and serve all Lenawee County students and school districts.

        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.
