Each year at Neumont College of Computer Science, our students exceed expectations and create remarkable projects. To display their work, we host the Capstone Project Invitational–a 10-week project-based challenge–where faculty selected students present their final product to a panel of industry professionals and alumni. In addition, we extend the invitation to Neumont students, staff, and community members to bask in the effort, progress, and successes of our presenters. Below you’ll get a quick look at the finalist and their projects from our CPI 2019 event:
Senior, Madeline Richard majoring in BSWD, created Photofolio, a social networking website. Her site is used as an online portfolio building tool for photographers to highlight and sell their work. If you’re an aspiring photographer, this is the perfect platform for you! On the technological front, Madeline utilized the MERN stack (MongoDB, Express, React, and Node), Redux, Cayman, AWS technologies including S3 buckets.
Colin Misbach, Neumont senior who will be graduating with a BSGD major, spearheaded his project, Nomads, which is a social media platform for gaming connoisseurs. The podium allows players to connect on a central hub and communicate with others also engaging in the site. Colin used Unity and high-level API’s for this project. Neumont is full of gamers and you know we’re really looking forward to exploring Nomad.
If you’re a foodie, then soon-to-be grad with a degree in BSWD Melissa Buena’s app is for you. Her project allows users to find unique and varied food options near them. The application function is similar to that of Tinder, where the users can swipe through choices based on their search preferences. Melissa intended to give food lovers more opportunities to discover different restaurants when launching this app. When creating Crave, she used the MEAN stack (MongoDB, Express, Angular, and Node). If your stomach is grumbling, it’s time to pull up Crave.
Lastly, Ramon Caballero Villegas who’s working towards his degree in BSCS, created a martial art training program in his senior year at Neumont. This will allow a master to record their technique and a student can then go home, review, and practice. For his project, he used C# as the main scripting language, Unity as the game engine, and a Microsoft Kinect to capture body movement and positioning data.
After learning what our Neumont students are capable of, we recommend checking out our site to see if this is the right college for you. If you’ve already been accepted and want a taste of what our school is all about, it’s time for you to sign up for our upcoming freshman experience, FReX.
