The EMMLCT Program in Brief

The EMMLCT program is an international distributed Master of Science
course. It is designed to meet the demands of industry and research in
the rapidly growing of language technology. It offers education and
training opportunities for the next generations of leaders in research
and innovation. It provides students with profound knowledge and insight
into the various disciplines that contribute to the methods of language
and communication technologies a.k.a computational linguistics a.k.a.
natural language processing and 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.

The program involves studying one year each at two different European
partner universities. Optionally a stay at one of the non-european
partners for some months is possible. After completing all study
requirements, the students obtain two Master of Science/Arts degrees:
one from each European universities where they studied.

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

The EMMLCT program is approved and supported by the Erasmus Mundus
