- 1. An Intense, Focused Education
Toga parties are for the saps who will be stuck in their senior year while you're already working toward that first promotion, raking in the cash. Of course, that also means that while in school you’ll need to work hard: attending classes up to eight hours per day, Monday through Friday, year-round for 10 quarters*. It’s challenging, but definitely worth it, and you'll graduate with a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, Software and Game Development, Web Development, or Technology Management.
- 2. Master Bleeding-Edge Technologies and Methods
You'll learn core competencies in key technologies and work on exciting projects to create technology solutions for use in real environments, for real clients. And speaking of those real clients…
- 3. Work in Teams, on Real Projects and Gain Incredible Exposure
Not only will you learn from our expert faculty and Enterprise partners, but we also regularly invite industry-leading partners to take over the campus to interview and interact with our students. The result? Insanely high employment rates (see number five).
- 4. Technology ... Computers ... More Technology
You eat, sleep, and breathe it. We teach it. Employers want to pay you for your expertise with it - win, win, win! At Neumont, even your general education classes have a tech twist to them. It’s a match made in heaven.
- 5. Abundant Career Options at a Remarkable Starting Salary
In 2011, over 96% of our graduates began careers in their field of study within six months of graduation. In fact, many students accepted job offers before they graduated, and had multiple job offers. Additionally, our students accept positions with average starting salaries of over $62,000 per year.**
- 6. Gain Relevant Industry Experience
You’ll work on projects in teams, just as you will professionally, and learn by doing -- while building an impressive resume. Sure, lectures on theory are one way to teach, but frankly, they put us to sleep. That is why we provide a hands-on approach and partner with Industry Leaders to create projects with relevance. After all, your future employer isn’t going to have you sit in a classroom and lecture to you are they? No. No they aren’t.
- 7. Geek Heaven!
Think Project Showcase (an opportunity to bring your in-class projects or that thing in your basement you've been tinkering with, and show it to all your classmates), LAN parties, skiing, mountain biking, computer and gaming clubs, camping trips, zombie hunts, code camps, and more. Everyone here (including the faculty) is passionate about tech and loves the same things you do, because we’re the same... except you’re better looking. Find out more about Neumont student life, Neumont reviews from current students, and more on the Neumont Forums.
- 8. 500 Days to Get You In, Out, and On With Life
This isn’t some weak-sauce educational institution. We’ll push you-hard. But it’s for a reason: while here you’ll develop the stamina and expertise needed to hit the ground running from day one at your first job. And, you'll have relevant experience under your belt before your competition even graduates.
- 9. Utah is Beautiful, Livable, and Fun!
Think "country feel, city appeal". Neumont is located in South Jordan, Utah 20 minutes away from downtown Salt Lake and world-class back country with biking, hiking, camping, snowboarding, and skiing. Utah has four complete seasons with arid temperatures in the upper 90’s for summer highs, and the 20’s for winter lows. No, we aren’t exaggerating when we say we have it all.

- 10. Laser-Focused on Measurable Results
By working in project teams to create real project solutions, you’ll earn a professional education that is focused on Industry Best Practices, experience the entire lifecycle of a development project, and leave with a relevant, applicable education. Why is this important? Because, it all leads to the big goal -- exciting career opportunities with companies that will reward and appreciate your expertise, and handsome salaries. We think college should launch your career, and our programs are designed to focus on doing just that.
