This one-year master's in Voice Technology will give you the expertise you need to contribute to the cutting edge in voice synthesis and speech recognition.
Whenever you dictate a message on your smartphone or ask Alexa the weather, you are using voice technologies. But this is only the beginning! Soon speech technologies will be present in even more smart places, with applications in health, cybersecurity, language learning, and much more. For now, people with scientific expertise in the domain of VT are in short supply. We aim to fix that!
This programme is suitable for students from different academic backgrounds with a strong interest in tech. You will work in teams to make your own synthetic voices, speech recognisers, and more. Interact with guest speakers from speech tech start-ups, multinationals, and research labs around the world and have the chance to collaborate with PhD students. In the final semester, you will even make your own voice tech demo as a final project.
The programme was developed in consultation with partners from Silicon Valley, local start-ups and universities worldwide to ensure you acquire expertise in voice synthesis and speech recognition and have the requisite mastery of programming, machine learning, and speech sounds to make an impact when you graduate.
