Neumont University announces Robert Lamb as the new chair of the software and game development bachelor’s degree program.
Lamb was promoted to the position after a year of teaching game development courses at the Salt Lake City institution. He will continue to teach as he takes on the new responsibilities of chairing the program. Lamb joined Neumont University in 2015 after a career in game and user development. He has worked on projects of all sizes, the most well-known of which is Disney Infinity through EA Games.
"Throughout Robert’s time as a Neumont instructor, he has displayed a real depth of passion for the software and game development program. His passion combined with his authentic concern for the success of each and every student has made him the perfect choice to lead and guide the BSGD," says Director of Academics Tim Clark. "We look forward to the great progress we will see within the BSGD program through Robert’s leadership."
The university is also pleased to announce that adjunct instructor Ryan Cox will now join the university in a full-time position as a computer science instructor. Cox began teaching at the university while working as an information security project manager for Walmart.
"Ryan has actually been one of our most counted upon adjunct instructors over the last five years. It seems the stars finally aligned and he is now a permanent member of the Neumont family," says Clark. "We are excited to finally have him full-time and are expecting marvelous things."
“While I was an adjunct, I loved working with students, but I didn’t have a lot of time to get to know them.” Cox says, “Already, the way I’ve been able to help them is more complete.
