All large technology companies working on the web and social networks need engineers trained in Language Technologies. Not only the best known ones because they belong to our daily environment (e.g. Google, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon) but also tourism, medical, banking, patent, advertising, online reputation, etc. because they all handle large amounts of textual information that people can no longer process without the help of computers. An expert in Language Technologies is a highly demanded profile to occupy jobs related to innovation and product development.
The study programme is based on the experience of close collaboration of the lecturers and proffesors staff with more than a dozen European and North American universities in the context, above all, of carrying out European R&D projects. From the perspective of the research profile of this programme, the activities, results and international presence of the faculty involved guarantee the validity and interest of the proposed programme.
Although this Master's degree is research-oriented (as opposed to other professional types), it offers interest for professional practice in innovative sectors, since most of the techniques studied in it have proven to be useful for solving problems of commercial interest, which is why an increasing number of computer service companies are looking for specialists in these subjects.
