About the course

The Erasmus Mundus Master in Language and Communication Technologies (LCT) is designed to meet the demands of industry and research in a rapidly growing area. 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 and it strengthens their ability to work according to scientific methods.

The main objective of this master's degree is to analyse language and to get to know the existing techniques and applications for computer language processing, with a double orientation, both research and professional in the field of language technologies. Moreover, the students acquire practice-oriented knowledge by choosing appropriate combinations of core, specialized an free choice modules, while following at least one of the specialization tracks: The Digital Language Resources (DLR) track, The Natural Language Algorithms and Applications (NLA) track and The Language Data Science (LDS) track.

Double degree and student mobility track: the LCT program involves studying one year each at two different European universities of the consortium. After completing all study requirements, the student will obtain two Master of Science/Arts degrees approved in the respective countries of issue.

This master's degree gives direct access to several doctoral programmes e.g. to Language Analysis and Processing at UPV/EHU.
