Software Engineering course has become very important not only for Software Engineers but other Engineering careers such as Computer Science, Information Engineering, Business Engineering, among others. Therefore, depending on the Engineering career the Software Engineering course tend to be whether more technical. Thus, in some Engineering careers, students do not have a strong background to understand abstract concepts of Software Engineering. To overcome this problem, we propose to teach basic background concepts using computer games. Through this strategy, we will be able to improve the results and to achieve the learning goals of the Software Engineering course.
