AUSTIN (AP) - Microsoft founder Bill Gates is in Austin to help dedicate a new computer science center at the University of Texas named in his and his wife’s honor.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Computer Science Center and Dell Computer Science Hall are to be dedicated Wednesday on the UT campus in Austin. Gates is scheduled to deliver an address at the center Wednesday afternoon.

The complex is home to UT’s Computer Science Department and its more-than-1,700 undergraduates and 42 faculty members. It produces 20 percent of computer science graduates in Texas.

The 140,000-square-foot complex cost $120 million. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation contributed $30 million to the project, while the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation contributed $10 million.
