                      ** STUDENTSHIPS  AVAILABLE ** 
  
The main aim of the MPhil course in Computer Speech, Text and Internet
Technology is to teach the fundamental theory of speech and natural
language processing and its use in a variety of advanced applications,
especially those related to the Internet.  Applications covered
include information retrieval, information extraction, dialogue
systems, machine translation and question answering.
 
The course runs from early October to the end of June and consists of
two terms of lectures and practicals followed by a project.  There are
strong links with industry and many of our past students have gone on
to work for 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.

A number of studentships are available for qualifying UK and EU
applicants. We especially encourage applications from students with a
background in engineering, computer science or mathematics.  The
deadline for applications is March 31, 2006.
