Learn More about CSC

Bossier City-Shreveport is a family-friendly city that values schools and students, neighborhoods and neighbors. With nearly a half-million people living here, Bossier City-Shreveport offers the diverse cultural experiences of a much larger city, but we still welcome new friends the small-town way, with a handshake, a glass of iced tea and an invitation to supper.

There’s really no one way to define who we are. Located in northwest Louisiana, we’re part Cajun, part cowboy, equally at ease at a crawfish boil or Texas-style barbeque. We have great, old buildings that are filled with history and young professionals brimming with new ideas, and we embrace them equally. We think it’s perfectly natural to enjoy performances of the Shreveport Metropolitan Ballet in the same building that was home to the Louisiana Hayride, which launched the careers of Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash.

We’re a community of cozy neighborhoods and wide-open spaces. Bossier City-Shreveport is proud of its top-rated restaurants that offer fine dining, and we brag about our farmer’s market, consistently ranked as one of the best in the United States. We love a Saturday night concert by the hottest band or the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra followed by a Sunday morning walk to church or a sailboat ride on Cross Lake. During the week, we work hard and take care of business, but it’s just important to take our children to the neighborhood ice cream shop.

In Bossier City-Shreveport, there is no one-size-fits-all. We know that different perspectives, tastes and talents drive our thriving and diverse community.

Louisiana Tech

The CSC partnership with Louisiana and Louisiana Tech University will develop new academic programs targeted at specific industry needs. Over the next few years, Louisiana Tech University expects to more than triple the production of graduates in cyber-related programs.

Dr. Leslie Guice (President of Louisiana Tech University)… "The workforce needs of CSC align exceptionally well with the academic programs offered at Louisiana Tech University. I am confident that this partnership will have a transformative impact on North Louisiana and will serve as a catalyst for further economic growth."

Louisiana Tech University is nationally recognized as a leader in information technology (IT) education, with degree programs focused on next-generation technology, ethics and cyber security.

Louisiana Tech was the first to offer a four-year undergraduate degree program in Cyber Engineering (CYEN) in the United States. This was an important plus in the selection of Bossier City for the CSC technology center. Continuing their innovative excellent, the school has launched a new doctoral program in Cyber Engineering.

The University was first to offer their entire Engineering and Technology Management Degree curriculum online - garnering national attention.

The University's Industry Consortium for Innovations in Communications, Information, and Cyberspace {IC}3, brings industry leaders, educators and students together, promoting workforce development and research.

There is access to supercomputing and high density computing capability. The United States Air Force Global Strike Command is steps away. State of the art infrastructure houses educators, researchers, government and industry leaders. This is the National Cyber Research Park and Cyber Innovation Center (CIC) in Bossier City, Louisiana.

CSC’s has announced the selection Bossier City for their new technology center. A large part of the decision was the due to the CIC and the National Cyber Research Park. While the CSC technology center is being constructed, they will operate out of space in the Cyber Innovation Center. The CIC’s goal has been to develop and expand Louisiana's Information Technology (IT) workforce. What started, as an investment by local and state government has become a hub of industry, academia and government leaders, all focused on accelerating cyber research and technology.

Several top IT companies have set up shop at the CIC, including Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, and Boeing. It's also home to the National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center and the Cyber Assurance and Defense Center. Now the Center welcomes CSC, a global leader in next-generation information technology services and solutions. Their Integrated Technology Center will move to the CIC until CSC's permanent facility is complete in late 2015. The move brings 800 direct jobs to Bossier.
