             COMPUTER SPEECH, TEXT, AND INTERNET TECHNOLOGY

                        ONE YEAR MASTERS COURSE

       THE DEPARTMENT OF ENGINEERING AND THE COMPUTER LABORATORY

                        UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE

                      ** STUDENTSHIPS  AVAILABLE **   

  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 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.

  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 EU/UK applicants. We
  especially encourage applications from students with a background in
  engineering, computer science, mathematics, and/or linguistics.
