The EMMLCT Program in Brief

The EMMLCT program is an international distributed Master of Science course.
The program involves studying one year each at two different Universities of the
consortium. After completing all study requirements the students obtain two
already approved Master of Science/Arts degrees with legal value in the countries
of issue.

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

The EMMLCT program provides students with profound knowledge and insight into
the various disciplines that contribute to the methods of language and
communication technologies and it 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. As such, the
EMMLCT program is designed to meet the demands of industry and research in
the rapidly growing area of Language Technology. It offers education and training
opportunities for future generations of leaders in research and innovation.

The EMMLCT program is approved and supported by the Erasmus Mundus
Program of the European Union. More information:
