Mott Community College in Flint received its largest in-kind donation in school history with a $55.8 million software grant from Siemens Corp. Siemens, the U.S. subsidiary of German-based Siemens AG, donated its product life cycle management software to the school for classes in manufacturing design, development and engineering.

The software will be used in Mott’s curriculum for certificate and associate degrees in design, manufacturing and service industry specialties.

Siemens, which has 13 offices in Michigan including Troy, Livonia and Plymouth Township, has made more than $2 billion in investments and donations to nearly 30 of Michigan’s community colleges and universities.
