JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi State University and Jackson State University are teaming up to teach a pre-engineering course at a Jackson high school.

The pre-engineering course will be offered at Jackson Academy beginning in the fall. It came about after informal discussions with high school administrators in Jackson about providing students with pre-engineering and science classes.

Kenneth Hughey of Clinton, an MSU engineering alumnus who recently retired from Entergy Mississippi, will lead the course with Jackson State professors as guest lecturers.

Students can earn college-level credit that may be applied at Jackson State or Mississippi State - or transferred to any other institution.

A minimum of 10 students are required for the class. Participants must be juniors or seniors, a 3.0 or higher grade-point average and meet other prerequisites.
