Neumont University's Keynote Speaker Commencement Address by Dr. Ludmil B. Alexandrov

Neumont University

On Wednesday, March 15, 2017, Neumont University Alumnus and Oppenheimer Fellow at Los Alamos National Laboratory Dr. Ludmil B. Alexandrov gave the speech below at the Commencement Ceremony celebrating the Class of 2017.

Dear graduates, dear members of the faculty and staff, dear parents, family, and loved ones – we have gathered today to share and to celebrate an important, dare I say, a milestone achievement.

To those of you graduating on this day, I offer my most sincere congratulations for successfully completing this stage of your formal education. I know that the past few years at Neumont have not been easy. I am sure that for many of you there have been numerous sleepless nights trying to finish a homework assignment, or attempting to meet a project deadline, or preparing for an important presentation. Now, it is the time to relax! It is the time to celebrate! You made it – you have finished your degree and moved to that ever elusive next level. Give yourself a round of applause! You really deserve it!

It is really an honor to be back at Neumont and to address this newly minted group of alumni. I have to confess that when Aaron Reed called me and invited me to present this commencement address, I was deeply flattered and I was completely overwhelmed. Without any hesitation, and with little thought about the task at hand, I accepted this honor. As time passed and the date for the speech came closer, I started realizing that I do not really know what to talk to you about. Of course, I did the most natural thing for a computer scientist – I went on the internet and I googled “how to write a great commencement speech”. As I learned from Google, the goal of a commencement speech is to plant a seed that will inspire the graduates towards a better path forward. This is indeed a daunting task and I am not quite sure whether I will be able to live up to this expectation.

In fact, I decided that the best approach is to tell you a story. To tell you a story of a fellow Neumont graduate. To tell you my story. And by telling you my story, I hope that I will be able to show you two things. First, that your education at Neumont will be invaluable in your future jobs, whatever these jobs might be and wherever these jobs might take you. And, second, I want to challenge you to not be afraid to follow your dreams, no matter how crazy these dreams might be and no matter where these dreams might take you.

It was almost exactly 10 years ago when I was in your position. I have just completed my education at Neumont and I was looking forward to going to my first serious job. I remember looking at a piece of paper. That same piece of paper many of you got today – your degree, your diploma. I also remember reflecting on my decision to come to Neumont for my bachelor’s degree.

At the time of my graduation, I did not know whether I have made the right choice. Whether the education at Neumont has been sufficient for paving the way towards a successful future career. Now, a decade later, I have absolutely no doubt. I know for sure. The foundation that Neumont gave me was not only sufficient to make me an exceptional employee of a fortune 500 company but this education also gave me the necessary courage and vision to apply what I have learned at Neumont into completely different fields. Indeed, I was able to take the project-oriented mentality and use it in all parts of my life including in my education and my scientific research.

I can still clearly remember my decision to become a student at Neumont University. I remember receiving a brochure in the mail, looking at it, and thinking – this place seems great for a person like me.

And what do I mean by a person like me? I have been passionate about programming since a very early age and I am sure that many of you share this early adoration for computers. My passion was first expressed in regards to playing computer games-a habit that still persists to this very day. As timed passed, I found it much more fascinating to program computers and to create my own games and my own tools. I deeply enjoyed programming and savored every moment of it.

During my time in high school, in all honesty, I was super nerdy.

At that time, I constantly participated in competitions for mathematics and informatics. Not only did I compete but I also deeply enjoyed being part of these competitions! When it came time to decide where to go for college, I knew that I wanted to go to a place of like-minded people. A place full with “nerds just like me”. A place that could educate me in cutting edge technologies. I understood the value of knowing mathematics, theory, and algorithms but I was more thirsty for learning hands-on technology skills necessary to solve the problems relevant today rather than solving the problems of yesterday.

I do clearly recall my very first day at Neumont’s campus – everyone around me was excited about various aspects of computer science and everyone was eager to learn. Indeed, it was a great place; it was almost a perfect place.

During my years at Neumont, its students, its staff, and its administration became like a family for me. The numerous hours spent developing projects brought us, the student at that time, together creating friendships that have endured the test of time. The projects we all worked on were not simply college assignments, rather, these projects became voyages that we took on together as teams, in some cases, these projects even became battles that we fought together.

The staff and administration of Neumont were ever present and always there to help and guide us throughout these journeys, making everyone’s time at the University truly unforgettable.

A few months after graduating from Neumont, I started my very first job as a business technology consultant at Deloitte Consulting. I was justifiably worried, as I did not know what would be expected from my first job. After my first week on the job, I was not worried any more. Not even the slightest bit.

The job as a consultant at Deloitte was so very similar to the many projects that I have done at Neumont and I knew exactly what I should do and when I should do it. In fact, I recall thinking that one of my enterprise projects was much more complicated than my current job as a consultant. To my surprise, the situation was rather different with my colleagues at Deloitte who came from other colleges. Many of them were indeed quite smart and they have completed their education at top universities across the country. However, what they lacked was the exposure to the rigorous project-based education and the type of thinking that Neumont has given me, and has also given you.

Most of my Deloitte colleagues were experiencing projects for the very first time and, naturally, they were struggling with this first encounter. After the first six months on the job, my manager came to me, he looked me in eye, and told me, “Ludmil, you really know what you are doing. You are operating on the next level we keep talking about. I think we should promote you as soon as possible." 

Indeed, I got this first promotion by the end of that fiscal year. In contrast, it took several years for most people from other universities to achieve this career step since they first needed to learn the rules of the game. The rules that I knew and you know from your time at Neumont. I should confess that this was not only my experience; many of my friends and classmates from Neumont were also excelling at their jobs with remarkable pace: getting promoted faster and receiving significant salary raises.

Indeed, what you probably do not realize at this moment but you will almost surely know within a few years is that your education at Neumont has provided you the necessary road map and experience to steer through the turbulent waters of corporate America. The completion of this rigorous education has given you both the necessary knowledge and the know-how to shine in your new jobs and to be more successful than you have ever imagined.

But going back to my story. After working for some time as a consultant, I discovered that I am extremely passionate about understanding scientific problems and, more specifically, about solving biological conundrums. It was an unexpected personal discovery and, in fact, it was a scary discovery. I felt valued and appreciated in my current job as a consultant. I also felt that my career was moving forward and I was being well compensated and promoted. In contrast, I was unsure whether I will be any good as a scientist, especially in a new field like biology. At that time, I remember thinking that while there is a good chance that I will fail as a scientist, if I do not try to be one, I will regret it for the rest of my life. Indeed, in parallel with my day job as a consultant, I started using my computational skills and training at Neumont to help scientists at Harvard with the analysis of large biological data sets. As time progressed, I found myself enjoying biological research more and more and I eventually I applied for a master’s program in Computational Biology at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom.

I was very blunt in my application essay – I wrote that I have limited knowledge in regards to biology and that I have a strong project-based computational education from Neumont. To my surprise, I was not only accepted at Cambridge but I was also given full funding to support my master and subsequently my doctorate studies.

I would later learn that my diverse academic background and education was an essential reason to get these scholarships. Nevertheless, going to a place like Cambridge was intimidating. Cambridge is a university that is more that 800 years old, it is older than most countries that currently exist. Cambridge has educated a big proportion of Nobel prizes winner and it has effectively created most of the modern fields of biology, physics, economics, and literature. To my dismay, completing my master's, and later my Ph.D., was much easier than I expected. Without realizing, the hands-on learning at Neumont has prepared me to educate myself on my own.

I was not reliant on lectures, rather, I looked at each class as a project and I developed a set of tools around it. For example, instead of simply readying and comprehending lectures in neuroscience, I developed various programs simulating neural networks, synaptic plasticity, single-neuron models, and many others. The ability to learn on my own and build projects from any topic allowed me to successfully complete my graduate studies and to develop a thread of science which has been novel and unique and has set the standard for future work in an important area of cancer research.

Ten years ago, I graduated from Neumont University and during the past decade I managed to go from a successful consultant to a respected scientist who is currently a co-investigator on one of the largest cancer research projects in the world. Reflecting on the past ten years, I can clearly appreciate that the education and foundation, which I received at Neumont, have been essential for my personal and my professional development. You may or you may not realize it today, but the education you have received will allow you to shoot for the stars. Ten years from now, many of you will be on the top of the world and I hope that you will be able to look back and to grasp the fundamental importance of completing this very first step. Of completing your education at Neumont!

Again, congratulations! Congratulations on finishing this phase of your life. I wish you all the best in your future endeavors and do not be afraid to change the world.

Thank you and good luck!

Neumont University Graduate Dr. Ludmil B. Alexandrov Returns to Alma Mater as Commencement Speaker

Neumont University

Neumont University honored students at their 2017 commencement ceremony on Wednesday, March 15 at the Salt Lake Masonic Temple with special remarks from Dr. Ludmil B. Alexandrov, a Neumont graduate from the Class of 2007. 

President Shaun McAlmont welcomed the distinguished guest and opened the ceremony on behalf of Neumont’s administration, noting that the purpose “is to honor you with this ceremony; to motivate you go on and do great things; to remind you that the path will be tough; to listen and keep learning; to be grateful to those who got you here; and most importantly, to be proud of this accomplishment and have it serve as the foundation for the successes to come in your lives.”

The sentiment was echoed in Alexandrov’s address, as he reflected on his time at Neumont and the impact it had on his achievements and contributions to science and research. “A decade later, I have absolutely no doubt, I know for sure, the foundation that Neumont gave me was not only sufficient to make me an exceptional employee of a fortune 500 company, but this education also gave me the necessary courage and vision to apply what I have learned at Neumont into completely different fields.” He explained, “Indeed, I was able to take the project-oriented mentality and use it in all parts of my life including in my education and scientific research.” 

After earning a bachelor’s degree in computer science, Alexandrov went on to University of Cambridge in Cambridge, England where he earned both masters and doctorate degrees in computational theory and biology. He currently works at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in Los Alamos, New Mexico as an Oppenheimer Fellow furthering his cancer research. 

Alexandrov also encouraged the graduates to look forward to the future with great optimism. “I want to challenge you to not be afraid to follow your dreams no matter how crazy these dreams might be and no matter where these dreams might take you,” he said.

The ceremony honored approximately 170 new alumni who have earned their bachelor’s degrees in the computer sciences. Students earn their degrees in three years by attending classes year-round.

A Message From Neumont's President

Neumont University

As we prepare to open our campus and classroom this weekend to prospective students and their families, I wanted to take a moment and address the unique situation Neumont University is in with changes and opportunities both inside and outside our campus. 

I want to note a few of the many accomplishments we should be celebrating. Our student outcomes continue to impress. With offers coming in from across the country, many of our upcoming graduates have already signed offers with companies from Google to Hewlett-Packard to Axxess and more. Six of our Enterprise Partners have also extended offers to students, illustrating the value of Neumont’s formula for career-ready graduates.

2017winteremployers_v1.png

Our faculty is key to preparing our students for success after graduation. I wish to congratulate Aaron Reed, chief operating and academic officer, on receiving his doctorate this past fall. I'm also delighted to welcome Kellie Thompson to Neumont. She is the first female chair of the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree and joins the faculty with more than two decades of experience and teaching in the computer science field. I would also like to welcome Dr. Kevin Erickson who is currently teaching Decision Support Systems and Server Administration I & II. He has worked in the IT industry for the past 17 years and holds a Ph.D. in cyber security. Additionally, please welcome Jason Hammon who graduated and worked at Harvard University before completing a computer science teaching fellowship at Google. He now joins the Neumont team where he will develop online courses to help increase our offerings. 

Even with all this to celebrate, there is uncertainty. Changes in our country’s leadership have also meant changes to the administration at the Department of Education.
 
As I mentioned last fall, our current accreditor (ACICS) can no longer accredit institutions of higher education. However, because of Neumont's good standing, the Department of Education has granted the university temporary accreditation while the institution transitions to a new accreditor. ACICS’ status is currently working its way through the court system and what seemed to be a “final decision” may not be so final. Their future is uncertain. 

The good news in all this is that Neumont is officially considered “in process” with a new accreditor (as defined by the Department of Education). Staff and faculty are now at the critical stage of submitting a self-evaluation report.
 
The accreditation process notwithstanding, we remain laser-focused on student performance and outcomes; employer needs; and industry-proven curriculum.

I hope you will join me this weekend in welcoming new faces and families to see the best of Neumont. 
 

Meet Computer Science Chair Kellie Thompson

Neumont University

From “algorithm enchantress” Ada Lovace to Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, there are many stories of women in the tech industry whose talent, skill and brilliance have done incredible things for technology.

However it's well-established that there are not enough women working in technology today. Especially when you consider that in 1984, 37 percent of computer science graduates were women compared to only 18 percent today. 

We sat down with Kellie Thompson, the new chair of Neumont University's Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree to talk about women in tech, her 15 years of experience in the industry, the value of failing, and her love of animals.

(This interview has been edited for clarity and content.) 

NU: Thanks for taking the time to meet. Let’s talk a little bit about your path to Neumont, and computer science in general. 

KT: Yes, I love technology. Originally I wanted to work in tech as a veterinarian. I followed my Mom and moved to Northern California. As I worked in the veterinarian field as a technician, I decided that I really loved animals but I didn’t want to be a vet. My mom was a computer programmer, she did RPG and she told me, "Don’t go into programming." 

So I did, (laughs) and I’m glad I did. I love the problem solving, the constant learning and got my degree in Computer Science from Cal State Hayward. I failed one of my first tests in school and wondered if I should continue. But it was okay, as I’ve gotten older I better understand that failure is learning. 

There are a lot of opportunities for women in tech and a lot of us are trying to figure out the puzzle as to why they are not [more women taking advantage of the opportunities]. For example, I’m not a morning person, but the world seems to be more geared to morning people. And the same thing is happening in the workforce – it is so geared towards men. So I had to look at the puzzle, and I’m still trying to figure it out, but how could I make it work for not just me but other women.  

NU: Are there certain things that need to be done to make women feel more comfortable?

KT: You look at the numbers, and 90-plus percent of tech is men, that includes the leadership. But there are so many of the traits and characteristics we could all benefit from having more influence of women in this workforce and these leadership positions. One thing we could all do better is to reinforce positive behavior and look at the contribution of the individual instead of a person’s gender. I say I learned about the kind of boss I wanted to be a lot by working for people and learning what not to do. 

NU: Not to go negative in the interview, but are you willing to share a few examples? 

KT: I’ve seen lot in this industry, from the Dotcom bubble to experiencing sexism first-hand in the workforce. When I started in what I thought was my first ‘tech’ job, I had moved to the east coast, and it turned out to be more of a job as a secretary. That wasn’t for me. They had some very old ideas about the roles women should play in leadership and technology. I was told I was not qualified for positions and the main reason was that I am a woman. 

NU: That seems crazy to think about people saying and believing. How did you handle the hostility? 

KT: Looking back, I didn’t think about it or how it was playing out. Where I worked, for most of my life, I was one of, if not the only woman – but like I said, I didn’t think about it as much as I just worked hard, learned, created, and kept my eye on the prize. 

NU: So along the lines of being one of the only women in tech at your job, I’ve been reading a lot about the pipeline to these jobs – that there just aren’t as many women to choose from by the time it gets to the workforce. The non-profit Girls Who Code reported that about 74 percent of young girls express interest in STEM fields and computer science, but by the time they are deciding what to study, there’s already been a drastic drop off in that pool. Is there something we should be doing different, earlier in their development? 

KT: It makes me think about the larger issue of gender, and then something so simple as their toys. I mean, I love Barbie, sure, Barbie’s great—but how much problem solving is Barbie doing? You give a boy a truck, blocks – what does he do? He builds and creates and problem solves. He probably makes mistakes and figures it out. Our girls need to see it’s okay to make mistakes. In fact, the problem-solving piece of Neumont’s curriculum is one of the things that influenced my decision to come here to teach. 

NU: Can you elaborate a little bit more about that?

KT: I like Neumont’s curriculum: the problem solving, the opportunities to create, and the hands-on approach. I like that instructors have flexibility within the curriculum to use their experience and passion to help these bright minds – many who are smarter than me – make valuable contributions to society.  

NU: Wow. That's a great point! Thanks so much for you time today. It's been great meeting you.

Showcasing Student Projects One Event At A TIme

Neumont University

Twice a year, Neumont University hosts Project Showcase. Students are encouraged to show off projects they've developed both in and out of the classroom in a friendly competition with gaming, non-gaming, Capstone, and Enterprise project categories.

In March, Project Showcase coincides with Freshman Experience to give future students a chance to see project-based learning in action and better understand what a Neumont computer science education entails. 

This year is no different. Students are asked to register their projects by Friday, March 3. (You can register your project here.) In the past, we've seen security systems, websites, apps, games, race cars, and more presented at the event. Anything students code from the ground-up is fair game to be included at this event. 

Beyond inviting future students and their parents to the event, we also invite alumni, staff, faculty, and the tech community to participate. During the event, all guests are encourage to vote for their favorite projects in each category. The winners will be announced with the highest honor going to the Ultimate Grand Champion selected by the audience. 

Project Showcase is on Friday, March 10, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Nemont University's campus in downtown Salt Lake City. RSVP for the event on our Facebook page

A Change of Pace

Neumont University

Dani Meyer knew Neumont University was the right college when she visited campus during Freshman Experience in 2015. The small classrooms and computer science focus put her at ease that transferring from the University of Wisconsin was the right choice for her career. 

After taking Databases in her first year at Neumont, she was inspired to tackle the challenges of software development and declared her major in computer science. She says, "With databases, I want to find out the solutions of these problems, and I want to find a better way of doing things."

When it comes to finding solutions, Dani is willing to put in the work required. She manages to consistently make the Dean's List and stays busy on campus as a Resident Advisor and Student Ambassador. Roles in which she helps future and current students navigate life at Neumont. A life that can sometimes be difficult, especially for a woman looking to make it in an industry with a shortage of women working in the field. Dani says, "It's a fun thing to try and excel in your program and show that you can be an innovator just like anybody else."

Watch the video above to hear Dani share her story of why she chose Neumont. 

Can't wait to join the Neumont community? Submit your Application for Admission by Monday, March 27 and automatically be considered for merit-based financial aid. 

I Chose Neumont

Neumont University

Neumont is a big choice with even bigger results. And we want to highlight the individuals who choose to join the Neumont community. The students, alumni, staff, faculty, and parents who make up our small community both online and in-person. We know choosing the right college can be daunting, but every year we're honored with new students and their families who choose us. 

We've heard some amazing stories, like Communications Instructor Jeremiah Harrison who's father pushed him to finish his master's degree. And now he teaches our students here helping them to change their lives and create a better future. 

And Computer Science Instructor Josh Krebs who graduated from Neumont, worked in the tech industry, and returned to the college to teach because he helping students learn and grow is one of the most rewarding experiences of his life. 

We also heard from Interim Computer Science Instruct Matt Warner who came to Neumont five years ago after more than 10 years in the industry. He says, "I see the classroom as a conversation between myself and whoever else is in the classroom. Education is a path that we walk together." He enjoys helping students understand technology and seeing them use their knowledge, skills, and experience to transform their lives. 

We've been delighted, humbled, awed, and amused by the stories coming in across social media as students, alumni, and parents share why they chose Neumont. We hope to continue to see your stories online and hear them in person. Thank you for being a part of what makes the Neumont community a special place. 

What are Enterprise Projects about?

Neumont University

One of the secrets to the success of Neumont University graduates in the tech industry is our Enterprise Project program. At Neumont, students don't do internships. They don't provide enough of the hands-on experience required to launch a successful career in technology. And we want every student to graduate into an exciting and fulfilling career.

So we examined traditional education and found that by working with tech companies we could improve our curriculum and provide students with the hands-on experience they need. We've done this by creating Enterprise Projects. 

A team of Neumont University students completed an Enterprise Project with 1-800 Contacts. During the course of the project, students learned how to adapt Applitools and Selenium to 1-800 Contacts websites providing automated QA across browsers and devices.

An Enterprise Project is when a small team of students joins a company like IBM, eBAY, Nike, Pluralsight, Workfront, Oracle, 1-800 Contacts, Wobbl3 Entertainment, Willis Towers Watson, and more. The student team then works with a Neumont instructor and a company manager to create software development solutions over the course of a 10-week quarter. 

During their senior year, Emerson Shaffer and Jacob Meyers completed an Enterprise Project with the team at Wobbl3 Entertainment, an indie game dev studio in Salt Lake City, to bring the game DubWars to PC. The game is now available on Steam.

Of the more than 418 projects Neumont students have completed with more than 94 companies across the US, we've seen projects like automated QA testing, video game development, mobile app development, data visualization tools, and more.  

Some students will complete an Enterprise Project with the same company for up to three quarters. Other students will move to different companies. All students are required to fulfill a variety of roles throughout their senior year on each project. Each student spends up to 20 hours a week on an Enterprise Project to complete the credits required for graduation. 

With experience like this, it's no wonder 77% of Neumont graduates accept a job offer before they graduate.* They have the skills and experience needed to push technology forward for companies in all industries. 

If you would like to attend Neumont this fall, submit your application at www.neumont.edu/apply

If you are a company looking to hire Neumont students or would like to complete an Enterprise Project with us, please contact Director of University Relations Teresa Zundel at 801-302-2807 at tzundel@neumont.edu
