The course is divided into two modules: Computer-Aided Translation and Basic Programming and Machine Translation and AI.
A total of 12 ECTS credits are required to successfully complete the CAS. Module 1 totals 5 ECTS while Module 2 totals 7. One ECTS credit corresponds to a workload of 30 hours, which consists of attendance time during course days as well as preparation and follow-up.
An assessment must be completed for both modules:
Module 1: Multiple-choice test on all topics covered in the module.
Module 2: Course paper on a topic from either module.
Participants select a paper topic after consultation with a lecturer. The paper should be approximately 15 pages and can be written in English, German, or French. Each participant will present their project on the last course day in March 2023.
The lecturers are faculty members of the University of Zürich (UZH), the Zürich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW), or guest lecturers from other renowned institutions in their respective fields.
