Why choose Neumont?

Neumont University

Neumont College of Computer Science isn't like most other colleges and universities. And, we're okay with that. 

At our campus in downtown Salt Lake City, students learn in small, hands-on, project-based classes where they complete projects modeled after the tech industry. Students demonstrate what they've learned at our tech science fair Project Showcase. Then after two years of intense learning, they prove themselves to their peers and faculty through Capstone Projects. Finally, they work with real companies on meaningful projects during their senior year gaining relevant and practical experience prior to graduation. 

When you graduate in only 3 years with a bachelor's degree in technology, you'll have the skills and the experience you need to launch your tech career. Learn more about Neumont's unique curriculum by watching this video

An Easter egg hunt, project presentations, faculty reception, and more FReX nonsense

Neumont College of Computer Science

A complete wrap up to all things FReX last weekend as the Class of 2020 got to know Neumont Unviersity and Salt Lake CIty. 

Neubies and their guests arrived to a light breakfast and checked in at a hotel in downtown Salt Lake City. They listened to presentations from Chief Operating and Academic Officer, Aaron Reed, Director of Academics Tim Clark, Director of Corporate Relations Teresa Zundel, Career Services Manager Britta Nelson, and alumnus and Computer Science Instructor Josh Krebs.

Presenters shares why they chose to work at Neumont, highlighted stats and data about the future of computer science in the United States, and explained that Neumont is the best choice for a degree in technology because of our project-based curriculum devleoped in partnership with the tech industry, hands-on approach, and real-world experience. Not to mention, a dedicated Career Services team to help students find jobs before graduation.

The presentations were followed by lunch as a panel of current students and alumni tackled questions on everything from why they chose Neumont to their day-to-day life to their careers. A huge thank you to each of them for taking time out of their day to share their Neumont story. Chris, Furqan, Mary, and Melissa were happy to share their experiences as students and alumni.

After lunch, attendees and their guests were invited to Project Showcase Prime at Neumont's campus at 143 South Main Street in Salt Lake City. At Prime, students with the best projects from Showcase are invited to present once more. These dedicated students showed off apps, games, and software they had developed independently and in small groups to prove their skills in Java, C#, and more.

During Project Showcase Prime, guests were invited to tour a student apartment in the Tower Suites, chat with faculty, and search for Easter eggs in honor of the holiday weekend. 

As if all of that wasn't enough, accepted students were invited to get to know current students with a night of gaming on campus. (After a break for dinner at a nearby restaurant of the guests' choosing.) Parents were invited to get to know each other at a small mixer event at the Little America's Lucky H Bar and Grille. 

Students and visitors competed in tournaments for Super Smash Bros and Overwatch. They also had a choice of games to play including Cards Against Humanity, Pathfinder, Resident Evil 7, and more. 

Thank you for visiting! We hope you had as much fun as we did!

I Chose Neumont

Neumont University

Neumont is a big choice with even bigger results. And we want to highlight the individuals who choose to join the Neumont community. The students, alumni, staff, faculty, and parents who make up our small community both online and in-person. We know choosing the right college can be daunting, but every year we're honored with new students and their families who choose us. 

We've heard some amazing stories, like Communications Instructor Jeremiah Harrison who's father pushed him to finish his master's degree. And now he teaches our students here helping them to change their lives and create a better future. 

And Computer Science Instructor Josh Krebs who graduated from Neumont, worked in the tech industry, and returned to the college to teach because he helping students learn and grow is one of the most rewarding experiences of his life. 

We also heard from Interim Computer Science Instruct Matt Warner who came to Neumont five years ago after more than 10 years in the industry. He says, "I see the classroom as a conversation between myself and whoever else is in the classroom. Education is a path that we walk together." He enjoys helping students understand technology and seeing them use their knowledge, skills, and experience to transform their lives. 

We've been delighted, humbled, awed, and amused by the stories coming in across social media as students, alumni, and parents share why they chose Neumont. We hope to continue to see your stories online and hear them in person. Thank you for being a part of what makes the Neumont community a special place.
