Both Computer Science and Electronic Engineering and Linguistics offer opportunities for studies in Language and Computation:
  • the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering offers modules in natural language engineering and projects in NLP/IR areas
  • the Department of Languages and Linguistics offers an MA in Computational Linguistics for Linguistics students 
Students following these courses are allowed to take modules offered by both Departments; the Language and Computation group also runs joint research seminars attended by both faculty and students in which recent work is discussed. These courses would also give students an excellent background for subsequent PhD studies, particularly in areas such as Constraint-Based Grammars, formal and corpus-based semantics, and the acquisition of lexical and commonsense information.
