The MA in IT and Cognition at the University of Copenhagen is a very exclusive program for a small group of talented and focused students who wish to excel in developing advanced cognitive technologies. Students will learn to deal with the complexity of human language, vision and cognition, design innovative and intelligent information and communication technology (ICT) using knowledge of language and human cognition, and identify new interesting applications of cognitive models. In the MA program students are presented with cutting-edge technologies such as natural language parsing, object recognition, virtual agents, machine translation, or visual scene analysis.
Since the program is very exclusive, the staff offers considerable guidance and support, incl. monthly interviews with the students, guest lectures, supervision of voluntary research projects and the organization of student workshops. The monthly interviews are used to continuously evaluate the study program, to supervise the students and to be able to better recruit students for research projects and collaborations with industry. Past guest lectures have, for example, been about language acquisition, authorship attribution, epistemic logic, learning mathematics, and visual attention. We invite both researchers and industry partners to give guest lectures.
Candidates will be interesting to industry as well as research, and are popular in both places. Our past students have jobs at places like SAS Institute, Gallup, Textkernel, or continue their studies in PhD programs at universities in Denmark or elsewhere.
