Helping students launch their tech careers

Neumont College of Computer Science

It's unusual for a university to brag about their students getting jobs immediately after college. But at Neumont University, it's a core focus for our staff and faculty. We work with tech companies to develop a curriculum that will teach our students the technical and interpersonal skills they will need to succeed in a professional environment. That means from day one, we're working with ever student to launch their career in technology. The experience culminates for students with Enterprise Projects in their final year when they work with companies on real projects. 

Chief Academic Officer Aaron Reed explains the role he plays in bringing together students, faculty, and staff with industry partners to help our grads get great jobs. 

Alumni Panel 2015

Neumont College of Computer Science

We always love when our alumni stop by to visit. And on November 3, 2015, we were lucky enough to have four graduates from the Class of 2014 join us for a panel discussion. Watch the video for their insight and advice into life after college. 

From left to right, you'll hear from Aaron Martinez (Rakuten Marketing), Sam Fisher (inContact), Ryan Adams (React Games), and Zach Hunt (Performance Systems International). They each graduated from a different degree program and have different jobs in technology.

Alumni Spotlight: Anthony Corbin, Software Developer at Google

Neumont College of Computer Science

Ninety-seven percent of Neumont University graduates are employed in their chosen field within six months of graduation, and they average a starting salary of $63,000.* We have the data to prove it, and it’s not a statistic we shy away from. But what the numbers can’t express are the unique stories of those individual alumni. Before Anthony Corbin (Class of 2015) even graduated, both Google and SONY Santa Monica Studios were knocking on his door with lucrative offers.

We sat down with Anthony to hear about his decision, his experience with project-based learning, and Neumont’s role in his road to Google.

Alumni Spotlight: Korvyn Dornseif, VP of Exchange Solutions at Towers Watson

Neumont College of Computer Science

Enterprise Projects are key to Neumont University’s success in helping grads get hired. They place student teams in a real companies developing software and working on other important tech tasks during their final year of school. In addition to refining technical skills and professionalism, Enterprise Projects help students build a strong network of connections in the tech industry through the projects.

One of Neumont’s Enterprise Partners, Towers Watson, has hired more than 30 Neumont graduates in less than 10 years. Towers Watson is an international professional services company with a key office in Salt Lake City.

“We rely heavily on Neumont to educate skilled developers,” says Korvyn Dornseif, Nuemont Alum (Class of 2006) and vice president exchange solutions at Towers Watson. “We know exactly what to expect from them, and we don’t have to wash away any bad practices. They’re passionate about their work.”

Joshua Kirk, director of quality assurance at Towers Watson says Neumont graduates are “very self-motivated, and they’re comfortable asking the right questions. They’ve all come from the Enterprise Projects, so they’re all familiar with our business and can hit the ground running.”

Although 82 percent of Neumont University’s students come from out-of-state, more than half of them accept their first job in the tech industry at a Utah-based company. As reported in Forbes, Utah was recently ranked #2 Fastest-Growing States for Tech Jobs in 2015, and Neumont is playing a key role to help further that distinction.

We met up with Korvyn to discuss his Neumont experience and why the partnership with Towers Watson and Neumont works so well.
