The University of Wolverhampton is offering a Master’s course in Language and Information Processing at the world-renowned Research Group in Computational Linguistics (part of the Research Institute in Information and Language Processing), starting this October.
Full-time 12 months
Part-time 24 months
Start date 14/10/2013
The Masters course in Language and Information Processing is aimed at students from linguistics, computational linguistics, translation, languages, computer science and mathematics backgrounds.
The duration of the course is 12 months full-time (or 2-4 years part-time) and it gives students valuable hands-on experience through lab-based practical sessions as well as a solid theoretical grounding via lectures.
The modules offered in this programme focus on different areas within language and information processing, ranging from computational linguistics and programming to translation tools and Cybermetrics.
As the teaching on the course is based on research carried out within the Research Institute in Information and Language Processing (RIILP), graduates will be well-placed to continue their academic/research careers by applying for PhD positions within RIILP or at other leading centres for language and information processing. This degree will also enable graduates to access research and development positions within the natural language processing and human language technology industry, as well as in related areas such as translation, software development and information and communication technologies, depending on their specific module choices and dissertation topic.
The course will cover module topics such as:
- Computational Linguistics,
- Programming for Corpus Linguistics,
- Machine Translation and other NLP Applications,
- Translation tools for Professional Translators and Introduction to Cybermetrics.
The modules delivered by Research Institute in Information and Language Processing (RIILP) staff are underpinned by research carried out within the Computational Linguistics and Cybermetrics groups. Both groups have built an international reputation for research excellence, and are committed to delivering practical (including commercial) applications based on their research findings. All staff teaching modules are engaged in high-quality research, as evidenced by the latest RAE results.
