This research aims to understand the influence of game-based learning methods on engeineer competences. Competencies expected from an engineer, which competencies are commonly explored by game-based learning methods, and perceptions from a sample composed of 92 respondents about the question that drives the research are explored. All competencies analyzed had more positive influence responses than negative ones, or non-impact responses. The competence analyzed most positively is “problem solving”; the one with the most negative impact responses is “second language learning,” and the one with the most non-impact responses is “continuous search for career improvement.” This study fills the following gaps: compiles and analyzes articles on game-based learning methods and carries out unprecedented research regarding the influence of game-based learning methods on the professional competences of graduates of engineering courses.
