Engineering Economics in Canada is designed for teaching a course on engineering economics to match engineering practice in Canada today. It recognizes the role of the engineer as a decision maker who has to make and defend sensible decisions. Such decisions must not only take into account a correct assessment of costs and benefits. They must also reflect an understanding of the environment in which the decisions are made.
