Curriculum - BTech in CSE + MS by Research in CL

Five-year Dual Degree in Computational Linguistics

(Leading to B.Tech in Computer Science and MS by Research in Computational Linguistics) [Subject to Changes]

June 2012

I. The Trans Disciplinary Programme in Computational Linguistics prepares experts who will lead research in the area of computational linguistics. They will be the professionals who will work towards developing man-man and man-machine communication systems which includes natural language processing and natural language understanding. The applications of this would be in the area of machine translation, dialog systems, intelligent search engines, information extraction, etc.

Since the area is inter-disciplinary, it would be better to start young so that the knowledge synthesis from the two disciplines – Computer Science and Linguistics - happens earlier and thus deeper.
