 COMPUTER SPEECH, TEXT, AND INTERNET TECHNOLOGY

 ONE YEAR MASTERS COURSE

 THE DEPARTMENT OF ENGINEERING AND THE COMPUTER LABORATORY

 UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE

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

 This new Masters course replaces the highly successful 
 M.Phil in Computer Speech and Language Processing. 

 Like its predecessor, a key aim of the new 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 and 3G
 wireless communication.

 It runs from early October to August 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.

 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, linguistics and/or psychology.
