*** ONE YEAR GRADUATE COURSE *** ** STUDENTSHIPS AVAILABLE ** ------------------------------------------------------------------------ COMPUTER SPEECH, TEXT, AND INTERNET TECHNOLOGY ONE YEAR MASTERS COURSE THE DEPARTMENT OF ENGINEERING AND THE COMPUTER LABORATORY UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE ------------------------------------------------------------------------ This course has replaced the highly successful M.Phil in Computer Speech and Language Processing. Like its predecessor, 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 new course also focuses on its application to information management and access within the framework of emerging Internet and W3C standards, such as XML text and speech annotation. It runs from early October to end of July 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. To further strengthen our links with industry, we are making this course available to students wishing to pursue it on a part-time basis. (Note that part-time enrolment requires attendance in Cambridge 1+1/2 days / week during term time.) 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. The EPSRC have funded a number of studentships for the course which are currently available to qualifying applicants. We especially encourage applications from students with a background in engineering, computer science, mathematics, and/or linguistics.
