This book is intended for undergraduate engineering students taking the introductory engineering economics course at the university level.
The fourth edition of Contemporary Engineering Economics has been thoroughly revised and updated while continuing to adopt a contemporary approach to the subject, and teaching, of engineering economics. This text aims not only to build a sound and comprehensive coverage of engineering economics, but also to address key educational challenges, such as student difficulty in developing the analytical skills required to make informed financial decisions.
