Language Technology and Computational Linguistics

Computational Linguistics, or Language Technology, is an interdisciplinary field dealing with the computational modeling of natural language. Research is driven both by the theoretical goal of understanding human language processing and by practical applications involving natural language processing, such as systems for automatic translation, information retrieval and human-computer dialogue.

Education in Language Technology at Uppsala University can be found at the first, second and third cycle. Students may follow a program at the Bachelor's or Master's level as well as take elective courses. Subject content is continually updated to reflect ongoing research in the field as well as the needs of the job market.
