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.
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.
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.
