Salt Lake City, June 3, 2015 --Neumont University, an accredited university offering bachelor of science degrees in three years, announces a Capstone Project Invitational, on Friday, June 12, at 3 p.m. at the Salt Lake City Public Library in downtown.
“We think of our Capstone experience as a senior project on steroids,” explained Aaron Reed, Neumont University executive vice president of academic operations. “This year’s Capstone contenders are easily some of the coolest projects Neumont University students have ever built.”
The event will highlight a handful of the most unique and tech-savvy Capstone Projects, selected from more than 40 students – with two student projects ultimately crowned Capstone Project Invitational Champions.
Prior to beginning their Enterprise Projects -- the pinnacle of Neumont’s project-based experience where teams of students work on large-scale, enterprise-level projects chosen by an Enterprise Partner with input from Neumont University — Neumont students must independently complete a Capstone Project. Students start with an idea and software development know-how, and then in just 10 weeks build out the project full-scale.
The final Capstone Project Invitational presenters will be announced Thursday, June 11. Potential presenters and their projects are outlined below:
“These projects are really a testament to the type of education these students are getting at Neumont,” says Reed. “The majority of our students have little-to-no coding experience when they join our ranks. It’s pretty incredible what they’re able to accomplish with our unique project-based learning model.”
