Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) plans to open a technology center at the Cyber Innovation Center’s national Cyber Research Park, Gov. Bobby Jindal and CSC executive David Zolet announced Tuesday. The company is expected to bring 800 jobs over the next four years.
The Virginia-based company offers IT services, including cloud solutions, cyber security and technology consulting. Its Bossier City technology center will be the anchor tenant of the research park.
Zolet said he envisions CSC as an anchor for future technology corridors in Bossier City and northwest Louisiana.
“We look forward to our partnership with Louisiana Tech University and other local universities and colleges … for developing the next generation IT workforce,” he said.
Louisiana plans to provide $14 million in state funding over the next decade to expand higher education programs to increase the number of annual computer science graduates.
Louisiana Tech — which would receive the lion’s share of the funding — plans to quadruple its total undergraduate degrees in computer science, computer information systems and cyber engineering over the next five or six years, according to Jindal.
