BATON ROUGE - LSU and IBM are entering into a partnership to help fill the new jobs slated for Baton Rouge with the construction of IBM's new facility downtown.

The state has earmarked $14 million to improve LSU's Computer Science department, with most of the money going to hiring more professors.

The goal is triple the number of LSU graduates in that department, which would put LSU in the top 15 percent of universities in the nation.

News 2's Rob Krieger spoke to students and instructors today about the changes, and will have their reactions tonight starting at 5 p.m.
