ONE YEAR GRADUATE COURSE **STUDENTSHIPS AVAILABLE** ONE YEAR GRADUATE COURSE
- ------------------------------------------------------------------ COMPUTER SPEECH & LANGUAGE PROCESSING
The course covers the theory and practice of speech and language processing. It runs from early October to September and consists of two terms lectures and practicals followed by a three month project. The final degree is awarded on the basis of coursework, examination and project.
Unlike some alternative programmes, the course aims to provide a 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 the great majority of past students have gone on to doctoral work or to jobs in industrial research laboratories.
Cambridge is a major international centre for research in both speech and language processing. The course lecturers and demonstrators are directly involved in leading edge research within the university and in collaboration with other European and US industrial and academic laboratories.
There are currently a number of EPSRC studentships available for the course to qualifying applicants. We encourage applications from students with a background in engineering, computer science, linguistics and/or psychology.
