IBMlogo3 EbizIBM and Louisiana State University have formed an alliance to boost career and education programs related to computer science, The Daily Reveille student newspaper reported Tuesday.

Alexis Rebennack writes the state of Louisiana will invest $14 million into the partnership with the goal of increasing the number of college graduates in the field.

The technology firm will help LSU develop coursework focused on math, technology and software development, according to the report.

The Louisiana Economic Development expects the IBM project to generate more than 1,300 jobs in the region and be completed in mid-2015.

“LSU is committed to having a top computer science program and welcomes students to take advantage of the opportunities offered through the Geaux Digital partnership and the LSU College of Engineering,“ said LSU President F. King Alexander.
