For courses in engineering and economics
Comprehensively blends engineering concepts with economic theory
Contemporary Engineering Economics teaches engineers how to make smart financial decisions in an effort to create economical products. As design and manufacturing become an integral part of engineers’ work, they are required to make more and more decisions regarding money.
The Sixth Edition helps students think like the 21st century engineer who is able to incorporate elements of science, engineering, design, and economics into his or her products. This text comprehensively integrates economic theory with principles of engineering, helping students build sound skills in financial project analysis.
