In this paper, a game based learning application in engineering education is presented. A Learning module with support of a 3D game environment was developed to teach the design of driving system of a recreational boat powered with renewable energy sources. 3D game was designed to enable learners to meet learning objectives of competency based learning module. The 3D game environment enables experiential learning so that learners are able to practice real world problems.
