This article presents a description of a machine translation (MT) and post-editing course (PE), along with an MT project management module, that have been introduced in the Localisation Master’s programme at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona in 2009 and in 2017 respectively. It covers the objectives and structure of the modules, as well as the theoretical and practical components. Additionally, it describes the project-based learning approach implemented in one of the modules, which seeks to foster creative and independent thinking, teamwork, and problem solving in unfamiliar situations, with a view to acquiring transferable skills that are likely to be in demand, regardless of the technological advances taking place in the translation industry.
