The term Semantic Technologies is used to describe languages, software, methodologies and models that are aimed at representing and manipulating metadata which encodes explicit meaning. By doing so, we open up the possibility of using machine processing in order to help us search, organize and understand our data. Semantic Technologies are being most visibly applied in efforts to build a "Semantic Web" - an application of such technologies in a web setting and at web scale. Semantic Technologies is a pathway that combines intelligent reasoning technologies from the "Ontology Engineering and Automated Reasoning” theme with web related topics from the “Data on the Web" theme. Students choosing this pathway will thus gain insight into both topics, and how they can be used and combined fruitfully in ontology-based applications and the Semantic Web.
We require a First or strong Upper Second class honours degree, or the overseas equivalent, in computer science, or in a joint degree with at least 50% computer science content. Applicants with extensive computer science industrial experience and a good honours degree, or its overseas equivalent, may also be considered for admission. All students are required to be proficient in spoken and written English. See website for accepted qualifications.
