OUR STORY

Like most small towns in Michigan, Hudson was deeply affected by our stateʼs economic decline during the last decadeʼs great recession. Not satisfied to allow the past to define their future, Hudson city and school officials came together to find a solution. They understood that the key to Michiganʼs future economic development depended on filling the skills gap. On September 9, 2014, the Southern Michigan Center for Science and Industry opened its doors. Matching education with industry demands, CSI brought together a team of people with a passion to train students and adults wishing to pursue immediate employment, further training, or obtain degrees in engineering and manufacturing. CSI is Michiganʼs solution for continued economic recovery.
