"Mount Mercy employees are competent, hard working, and self-motivated. They explore solutions and research issues to achieve business objectives. Their most notable trait is their calm demeanor under pressure, regardless of customer changes, aggressive timelines, or project switching."
"My two years at Mount Mercy took me from knowing almost nothing about coding to landing a full time job as a software engineer at Rockwell Collins. The classes taught here give insight into coding languages, concepts, math, and critical thinking skills necessary for a professional job."
"I enjoy the small class sizes and individual attention I have received from my professors here. Computer Science classes I have taken encouraged me to approach problems at work from different perspectives. The excellent direction I have received from my advisor has kept me progressing quickly through my academic career."

During spring semester 2018 Joshua Jurgensmeier implemented the ORB-SLAM2 algorithm on Softbank Robotics’ Nao Robot. He solved the Monocular Visual Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (Mono V-Slam) problem. Joshua completed this faculty-student computer science research project through Mt. Mercy’s Pathways Scholarship Program.
In conjunction with the Nursing Department, over 30,000 lines of code were written for a Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Web application that simulates a realistic electronic health care system. This web application is used by the Nursing Department to train the nursing students. The project was named "Linda," in honor of the late Linda Groepper who was an Associate Professor of Nursing and Director of the Clinical Simulation Laboratory. Linda was developed by the CS/MIS Senior Class of 2012 and is now a common tool for the Nursing Department.
