2018 Fall Quarter Course Schedule For First-year Students

Neumont College of Computer Science

A project-based curriculum at Neumont College of Computer Science, means you'll receive a well-rounded education wtih an edge. You'll learn relevant technologies along with the skills you need to succeed in the workplace throughout your time here. 

From your first class to your last, courses are designed with input from employees at tech companies large and small. That's why you'll take math and social sciences along with computer science and technology courses. Through our hands-on approach, you'll learn far more than programming: You'll learn how to work in a team, how to communicate effectively, and how to present yourself and your projects as a professional.

You can see that combination of theory, skills, and experience in the brief list of courses you're likely to take in your first quarter listed below.

Classes may be taught in a traditional, blended, or online format. This is not a complete course schedule and your personal schedule may differ depending on certain criteria. For more details, check out the 2018-2019 Course Catalog.

  • NEU100: College Success Strategies
    Learn effective time management, communication, and research skills to help you succeed.

  • CSC105: Using Modern Operating Systems
    Learn the most productive ways to use modern operating systems like Windows and Linux.

  • CSC110: Introduction to Computer Science
    While building applications, learn fundamental computer science concepts.

  • MAT110: Sets, Probability, & Number Systems
    An introductory course to set theory, practical applications in probability, binary, floating point representation, and more.

  • SSC250: Human Relations & Personality Development
    Examine yourself, evaluate future expectations, and learn practical skills to develop a strategy for success.

We mean when we say the best way to learn to code is to code. You'll pick up your new Lenovo P1 laptop and course schedule at Orientation Kickoff on Saturday, September 22. From day one, you'll start learning to code by coding. We can't wait to show you how.

Theory, skills, and experience

Neumont College of Computer Science

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. 

STEM-MX_enterprise_team-edit.jpg

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. 

If you'd like to see project-based learning in action, drop by Project Showcase on Friday, March 9, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at 143 South Main Street in Salt Lake City, Utah. Students will demonstrate their project work as they compete for prizes.
