The undergraduate Computational Linguistics certificate provides students interested in areas like machine translation, speech recognition, and natural language processing (NLP) with a solid understanding of both computational tools and fundamental linguistic theories and methodologies. This diverse, interdisciplinary skill set will prepare students for a variety of positions in the tech industry, or to pursue graduate work in Computational Linguistics.
As language technologies become widespread in our daily lives, computational linguists are in high demand in companies such as Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, IBM and many others. The certificate provides students with a strong linguistics background, thus complementing their computing abilities with a deep understanding of linguistic data. This type of training prepares students for careers as computational linguists, language scientists, language analysts, and language engineers.
