The Computer Science and Electrical Engineering programs represent the education mission of the Center for Spoken Language Understanding (CSLU). We train students to be able to understand, design, and apply computer algorithms and signal processing techniques. Unlike many other programs, ours is focused on solving complex problems in:
- speech and language processing,
- machine learning,
- biomedical problems.
Skills learned in our program are in high demand in industry, with major US companies (for example, Intel, AT&T Research, Microsoft, Apple, Nuance) making large investments in these areas. All of our former graduates have obtained exciting jobs in these and other companies.
Our work on language processing, using symbolic reasoning, falls within the domain of CS, while our work on signal processing falls within EE. However, much of our work, such as machine learning, speech signal processing, and using statistical techniques for language processing, falls within the intersection of CS and EE.
You can also take up to 12 credits of courses as a non-degree student.
