||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 11 (Postgraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||This course requires students to undertake a significant group project in natural language processing, with the advice of a member of staff. The project requires the application of skills learned through other courses and requires the development and synthesis of new skills, including problem-solving, communication, and teamwork skills.
This course requires students to undertake a significant piece of individual, self-directed research in natural language processing, developed in consultation with a member of staff. The project requires the application of skills learned through other courses and requires the development and synthesis of new skills, including:
* The ability to coordinate the work of a team with diverse intellectual background.
* The ability to design and carry out experiments, implement systems, or prove mathematical results needed to answer NLP research questions.
* The ability to communicate novel scientific results orally and in writing.
Entry Requirements (not applicable to Visiting Students)
||Other requirements|| This course is ONLY available to students on the first year of the PhD with Integrated Study in Natural Language Processing.
