New Online Module on Research Methodology at Màster Tradumàtica: Translation Technologies

Posted in General |

A pilot test was carried out during the 2017-2018 Academic Year with 5 students

The Tradumàtica master’s degree, currently in its 17th edition, opens up a new online module on research methodology for students interested in starting an academic career. The module, with 15 ECTS, includes an introduction to research methods, research tools and methodologies, as well as case studies and project analyses (see the teaching guide 2017-2018).

For 12 weeks, students follow a detailed schedule through a Moodle platform that includes course materials, detailed bibliography and submission of coursework. Instant messaging tools such as chats and forums are also provided in order to complement the students’ learning process. The module provides students with the necessary competences to submit a research project that students will defend through a videoconferencing system. Current research projects by the students of the pilot course include neural machine translation, pre- and post-editing and translators’ training.

By completing this module, Tradumàtica MA students and ex-students will be able to apply for the PhD programme in Translation and Intercultural Studies of the Departament de Traducció i d’Interpretació i d’Estudis de l’Àsia Oriental, and for the Catalan Government’s Industrial Doctorates programme, which allows the PhD student to carry out academic research as an employee in a company.

Applications are open until June 29, 2018.
