Through the new LSU Shreveport Cyber Collaboratory and partnerships, students are starting to see what it actually means to boost high-tech innovation in northwestern Louisiana.

“It’s cheaper and faster for us to partner with LSUS,” said Russ Mathers, director of STRIKEWERX, a hub of the Air Force Global Strike Command. “And whether it’s their hologram table or 3D-printing or the new laser cutter they’re getting, the Cyber Collaboratory is providing the Air Force with capabilities and skills we need; things nobody else is doing.”

The LSU Shreveport Cyber Collaboratory is a major boost to LSU’s ongoing effort to develop homegrown cybersecurity talent to defend the state and nation and vital industries.
