> Subject: Masters in Language Technology at the University of Gothenburg
> 
> The Masters in Language Technology (MLT) at the University of
> Gothenburg is an international masters programme which can lead to
> either a one-year or a two-year degree.  Deadline for applications in
> the current round for Swedish and EU students is 15th April, 2011.
> For further information see

> 
> Students are taught by researchers who are engaged in developing the
> latest technologies within the University of Gothenburg's priority
> research area in language technology at our Centre for Language
> Technology (CLT, http://www.clt.gu.se/), a collaboration between four
> departments at the University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of
> Technology (Department of Philosophy, Linguistics and Theory of
> Science, Department of Swedish, Department of Computer Science and
> Engineering and Department of Applied Information Technology).  We
> encourage students to work on their masters projects in one of CLT's
> three labs: dialogue technology lab, grammar technology lab, and text
> technology lab.
> 
> Language technology research and teaching in Gothenburg is
> characterized by a focus on the contribution of theoretical and
> rule-based approaches appropriately combined with statistical
> techniques.  Students therefore receive instruction in linguistic
> theory as applied to language technology as well as current approaches
> to language technology.  The programme draws students from a wide
> variety of backgrounds including linguistics, computer science,
> cognitive science and philosophy.  The programme is heavily oriented
> towards practical programming techniques (currently using the
> programming language Python) but we do not require that students
> entering the programme necessarily have a background in programming.
> They should, however, be prepared to learn programming techniques in
> an intensive introduction provided at the beginning of the programme.
