This is a concise and reader-friendly introduction of Economics for Engineering
students who do not have prior knowledge of the subject. As engineers need to know
economic tools to be able to apply them in their main field, i.e., engineering, the
treatment of the book is very simple and takes care of syllabus which is being followed
at the engineering programme of various universities. Apart from introducing main
branches of Economics, the book also discusses some advance topics, such as
forecasting, price determination under perfect competition and monopoly, decision
making and linear programming. Subjects such as Operations Research and
Accountancy have been discussed, which are used in judging economic viability of
engineering projects. However, the most significant among all is detailed introduction
of Engineering Economics in the last two chapters of the book unlike only one chapter
of the first edition. Besides ‘Elementary Engineering Economic Problems’, the
discussion has also been made on evaluating projects through Present Worth, Future
Worth, Annual Equivalent Rate of Return, and Replacement Analysis, which will help
students understand and analyse engineering problems. Not only for engineering
students, the book will also be helpful for students of science and medicine, who want
to appear for UPSC examination or pursue MBA programme.
