Neumont College of Computer Science isn't like other colleges and we're okay with that.
The Neumont Difference
Most college try to be everything to everyone. At Neumont, we focus on one thing and on thing only: technology. We teach faster, more intensely, and more in touch with the realities of the tech industry than any other institution. Our compressed, project-base curriculum means students graduate with the experience and the degree they need to launch their tech careers.
Pure computer science
Tech is our singular focus. We offer five bachelor's degrees in computer science, information systems, software and game development, technology management, and web design and development. Each of these degrees better prepare our students for the realities of the tech industry by combining theory with hands-on projects.
Real projects, clients, and experience
When we say our curriculum is real-world, we mean it. Our curriculum is developed with input from our industry partners to ensure students are working on meaningful software development projects from day one to better help them hone their creative, analytical, and collaborative skills. Enterprise Projects are what truly set Neumont students apart. For up to three, 10-week quarters, students work in a team creating a tech solution for a company. Companies like Workfront, Pluralsight, and Thing Big have partnered with Neumont over the years to develop software, quality assurance, and information systems projects that help their company accomplish more. Students also complete small, team-based projects and Capstone Projects on their own to show they're ready to tackle the challenges of the tech industry.
Bachelor's degree in 3 years
Our students graduate in only three years by attending classes year-round. Our compressed curriculum means students work in sprints (just like devs in the tech industry) to master skills quickly and sequentially so they graduate with knowledge, experience, and confidence. Instructors focus on teaching students how to learn on their own so they can continue to master skills and technologies in the quickly evolving industry. Students get in, get out, and get coding. No wasted time.
Computer science optimized
Our focus on computer science is in high demand. There are 8 times more computing jobs available than there are CS graduates to fill them. That helps CS graduates earn an average starting salary of $65,000 a year and estimated lifetime earnings of $1.5 million. Employers that have hired our graduates include Google, Microsoft, Oracle, Blizzard Entertainment, and Amazon, just to name a few.
