Modern day computers have allowed us to predict virtually, structural performance using finite element analysis (FEA). This has led to the emergence of superior mechanical parts while minimizing the expense incurred during validation. The level of expertise required to formulate FEA models and interpret their results takes years of training and development. It is highly unlike that current FEA experts would live forever. A radical and swift intervention is therefore required to preserve this technique. The effective intervention would be to transfer the expertise into younger minds who are able to reach years beyond our reign. A gamification approach to the transfer of FEA expertise might expedite the learning process among these minds. This should be based on a bank of classified questions about the FEA technique. Questions are classified according to the difficulty level ranging from questions about the fundamentals of FEA to the validation of a mechanical part. A digital resource like h5p could then be used to progressively choose a question. An answer supplied by a Student is used to determine the choice of the next question. After a series of questions the Student is given a badge ranging from beginner to expert. Indeed the badge could be allocated to a group of students competing against another. The online resource could be used to foster animosity among the groups by offering each group an insight into the level of expertise recorded for the others in the same class. An offer is then made to the student or group to improve the rank by playing the game again. The gamification of the course would infuse the students with the essentials to being an FEA engineer. Let’s preserve our expertise in the new generation by gamifying the pedagogy of the FEA.
