Course Description
This course is meant to equip the engineering students the fundamental concepts of
engineering economy and process of integrating engineering disciplines with economic
analysis .

This is extremely important in order to make informed financial decisions

in

selecting among viable alternative projects. Emphasis on financial and cost information, money
management, cash flows and project risk.
