  • Streamlined: This text was carefully optimized to serve a 1-semester, 1-3 credit-hour course without sacrificing rigor or essential content.

Fundamentals of Engineering Economic Analysis is tailored to the allotted timeframe, in an effective manner.
  • Accessible: This text supports a broad spectrum of engineering students with the best-integrated pedagogy, in both print and electronic formats.
