Apologies for cross-postings.

Dear colleague(s),

I would be grateful if you could please kindly forward the message below to (undergraduate) student mailing lists and/or associations at your site (computer science and/or linguistics and related disciplines).

If you would even be willing to print out and display a small poster, it would be fabulous -- you can download it here: http://www.lct-master.org/files/LCTPosterNov2012.pdf

Thank you very much for your kind cooperation.

Best regards, Ivana Kruijff-Korbayova Department of Computational Linguistics and Phonetics Saarland University Saarbruecken, Germany http://lct-master.org

The EMMLCT Program in Brief

The EMMLCT program is an international distributed Master of Science course. It is designed to meet the demands of industry and research in the rapidly growing of language technology. It offers education and training opportunities for the next generations of leaders in research and innovation. It provides students with profound knowledge and insight into the various disciplines that contribute to the methods of language and communication technologies a.k.a computational linguistics a.k.a. natural language processing and strengthens their ability to work according to scientific methods. Moreover, the students acquire practice-oriented knowledge by choosing appropriate combinations of modules in Language Technology, Computational and Theoretical Linguistics, and Computer Science.

The program involves studying one year each at two different European partner universities. Optionally a stay at one of the non-european partners is possible. After completing all study requirements, the students obtain two Master of Science/Arts degrees: one from each European universities where they studied.

The course consists of compulsory core modules, as well as elective advanced modules in Language Technology and Computer Science, possibly complemented by an internship project, and completed by a Master Thesis.

The EMMLCT program is approved and supported by the Erasmus Mundus Program of the European Union [ http://ec.europa.eu/education/external-relation-programmes/mundus_en.htm http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/erasmus_mundus/ ].

Application requirements (please see the program website for details)

All applicants must satisfy the following prerequisites:

1. Degree: a Bachelor degree or equivalent in the area of (Computational) Linguistics, Language Technology, Cognitive Sciences, Computer Science, Mathematics, Artificial Intelligence, or other relevant disciplines. The degree must be completed before the course starts.
