At Neumont College of Computer Science, we're all about technology. And, we firmly believe the best way to master tech is to get hands-on experience from day one. That's why all students are automatically enrolled in Intro to Computer Science, a Java-based programming course in their first quarter.
(If you haven't tried out programming before, check out this free Java course from Codecademy to get a sense of what software development is like.)
Intro to CS is just the beginning of your tech education at Neumont. From there, you'll dive into other languages, tools, and frameworks with increasing emphasis on the tools needed for your chosen major: computer science, software & game development, web design & development, information systems, and technology management.
But it isn't all programming courses. We offer general education and electives too, so you can go hiking, wireframe an app, and write an essay on Tolkien all in the same day. Although theory is important, our curriculum is developed in partnership with leaders of the tech industry and emphasizes project-based courses where students learn how to apply what they've learned in a real world setting while developing communication, collaboration, and creativity to solve problems. When you graduate from Neumont, you'll have the knowledge, skills, and experience needed to launch your tech career.
One of the best examples of our project-based curriculum is Project Showcase. At this STEM fair, students demonstrate their projects to future students, alums, industry partners, faculty, and staff.
You're invited to join us on Friday, March 9, any time from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. to see what students have developed. All visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite projects in gaming, non-gaming, Capstone, and Enterprise project categories. The awards ceremony will be at 3:45 p.m. Neumont's campus is at 143 South Main Street in Salt Lake City. Visitors are encouraged to take TRAX (City Center) or to park at City Creek Center.
If you'd like to drop by during Project Showcase, please let us know you're visiting by calling 888-638-6668 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. All visitors are asked to check in at the front desk.
