Summary

Engineering Economy, 7th edition, provides undergraduate students and practicing professionals with a solid preparation in the financial understanding of engineering problems and projects, as well as the techniques needed for evaluating and making sound economic decisions. Information on cost estimation, depreciation, and taxes has been updated to conform to new tax laws. Eighty percent of the end-of-chapter problems are revised or new to this edition. Distinguishing pedagogical characteristics of this market-leading text include its easy-to-read writing style, chapter objectives, worked examples, integrated spreadsheets, case studies, Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam questions, and numerous new end-of-chapter problems. Graphical cross-referencing is indicated so users are able to locate additional material on any one subject in the text. Quick-solve (Q-Solv) and Excel-solve (E-Solve) icons found in the text indicate the difficulty of a problem, example, or spreadsheet.
