Course Description
Engineering economics is concerned with the problem of investment decision making or capital
expenditure analysis. An “investment” problem involves making a decision to allocate financial
resources to acquire productive assets that will generate cash flows in future time periods.
Engineering economics seeks to develop and apply a logically consistent methodology for
evaluating investment projects. Discounted cash flow methods are used in analyzing such
projects. In this course we will assume certain cash flows and ignore taxation implications. After
developing the mathematics of cash flow equivalence, absolute and relative measures of project
worth will be developed and applied to individual and multiple projects. The emphasis will be on
private project decisions, but similar methods will be applied to public sector projects.
