Course Objectives:

To provide sound and comprehensive coverage of engineering economics especially. To explain how the business operates, how engineering project decisions are made within the business, and how engineering decisions can affect the bottom line (profit) of the firm. To build a thorough understanding of the theoretical and conceptual basis upon which the practice of financial project analysis is built. To satisfy the very practical needs of the engineer toward making informed financial decisions when acting as a team member or project manager for an engineering project. To incorporate all critical decision-making tools

– including the most contemporary, computer –oriented ones such as simulation techniques in risk analysis so that engineers can make informed decision making under uncertainty.
