Overview

Studies in Computational Linguistics at UC will give you applied skills in computer modelling language, speech processing, psycholinguistics, and machine learning for use in language technologies.

Computational Linguistics has a wide range of applications in industry – from analysing public opinion on social media platforms, to creating speech-recognition interactions with smart systems, to developing multi-translation tools.

More research and practical knowledge is needed in this field as language becomes increasingly digitised, and human-machine interactions continue to evolve.

Note: This new major is subject to Te Pōkai Tara | Universities New Zealand CUAP approval, due December 2020.
