COMPUTER SPEECH, TEXT, AND INTERNET TECHNOLOGY

ONE YEAR MASTERS COURSE

THE DEPARTMENT OF ENGINEERING AND THE COMPUTER LABORATORY

UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE

------------------------------------------------------------------------

** STUDENTSHIPS AVAILABLE **

A key aim of the masters course in Computer Speech, Text and

Internet Technology is to teach the fundamental theory of speech and

natural language processing. However, the course also focuses on its

application to information management and access within the

framework of Internet standards, such as XML text and speech annotation.

It runs from early October to end of June and consists of two terms

of lectures and practicals followed by a three month project. The

final degree is awarded on the basis of coursework, examination

and project.

The course differs from some other programmes by providing an

in-depth practical and theoretical grounding in the techniques for

speech and language processing which form the basis for today's

commercial and research prototype systems. There are strong links

with industry and many of our past students have gone on to work

for high-tech start-ups and industrial research laboratories, either

immediately or after completing a PhD.

Cambridge is a major international centre for research in both

speech and language processing. The course is taught by leading

researchers in these areas who have active collaborations with

industrial and academic laboratories in Europe, the US and Japan.

There are a number of funded studentships for the course which

are currently available to qualifying EU/UK applicants. We

especially encourage applications from students with a background in

engineering, computer science, mathematics, and/or linguistics.
