Students from Bath University are using a computer car-racing game to help them to learn the principles of engineering.

The computer simulation game 'Racing Academy' allows first-year engineering students to theoretically design aspects of a racing car, such as the tyres, gearbox and engine, before racing it against a computer-generated car.
