The Masters in Language Technology (MLT) at the University of Gothenburg is an international masters programme which can lead to either a one-year or a two-year degree. Deadline for applications in the current round for Swedish and EU students is 15th April, 2011. For further information see http://www.flov.gu.se/english/education/masters-second-cycle/mlt/. Students are taught by researchers who are engaged in developing the latest technologies within the University of Gothenburg's priority research area in language technology at our Centre for Language Technology (CLT, http://www.clt.gu.se/), a collaboration between four departments at the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology (Department of Philosophy, Linguistics and Theory of Science, Department of Swedish, Department of Computer Science and Engineering and Department of Applied Information Technology). We encourage students to work on their masters projects in one of CLT's three labs: dialogue technology lab, grammar technology lab, and text technology lab. Language technology research and teaching in Gothenburg is characterized by a focus on the contribution of theoretical and rule-based approaches appropriately combined with statistical techniques. Students therefore receive instruction in linguistic theory as applied to language technology as well as current approaches to language technology. The programme draws students from a wide variety of backgrounds including linguistics, computer science, cognitive science and philosophy. The programme is heavily oriented towards practical programming techniques (currently using the programming language Python) but we do not require that students entering the programme necessarily have a background in programming. They should, however, be prepared to learn programming techniques in an intensive introduction provided at the beginning of the programme. _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(at)_mailman.let.uu.nl http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
