Project Description

The Jackson State University (JSU) organizes the Mississippi Summer Transportation Institute (MSTI) program to introduce high school students to transportation engineering as a career. During the program, students participate in academic and enhancement activities to improve their skills in mathematics, science, engineering, and leadership. Co-funded through the STRIDE Center, the Marine Transportation Research and Education Center (MarTREC), and JSU, the MSTI collaborates with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) and Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) to provide guest lectures, laboratory tours and/or investigations.
