Book Description

Contemporary Engineering Economics, 5/e, is intended for undergraduate engineering students taking introductory engineering economics while appealing to the full range of engineering disciplines for which this course is often required: industrial, civil, mechanical, electrical, computer, aerospace, chemical, and manufacturing engineering, as well as engineering technology.

 

This edition has been thoroughly revised and updated while continuing to adopt a contemporary approach to the subject, and teaching, of engineering economics. This text aims not only to build a sound and comprehensive coverage of engineering economics, but also to address key educational challenges, such as student difficulty in developing the analytical skills required to make informed financial decisions.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“The Park text is one that students can engage better because of the emphasis on personal finance issues and clear explanations of business finance issues and why and when they are requested in industry.  I find that students learn Engineering Economy much more effectively when they can relate it to their own personal situations and understand how critical these finance skills are to their personal success.”

-Dr. David Sly, PE, IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY

 

“I believe that it is a superior text for its purpose due to the clarity and strong examples.”

-Stephen Smith, DREXEL UNIVERSITY

 

“The collection of stories in the opening vignettes and its overall writing style makes the adjective “contemporary” in the title of the Park text well deserved.  I would describe this text as a textbook written with students’ interests in mind.”

-Alla Kammerdiner, ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY

 

Contemporary Engineering Economics provides a very good coverage of fundamental issues in engineering decision making with contemporary examples and opening cases.”

-Bahattin Koc, UNIVERSITY AT BUFFALO (SUNY)

4Problem numbers are not the same as original 6E
By Trevor S
Chapter content seems to be the same, and the book binding is fine quality. The book problems themselves are the same as the original 6 edition, but the numbers are different. (for example, a 1000 dollar principle would be a 1500 dollar principle for the same problem for the international edition). If you don't need the problems to be the same, this is a good, cheaper alternative to the original 6 edition copy of this book.

3I have to mention the most annoying thing in this book
By Kevin Walsh
Not the easiest book to understand.

I have to mention the most annoying thing in this book:

Example problems often reference previous example problems. Thats normal. BUT this book builds on that to a stupid degree. I think the author was lazy and the editors didn't care. Those example problems are very hard to follow.

Example (numbers are not actual): problem 6.8 references problem 6.7, but 6.7 references problems 6.6 and doesnt have its own dataset.
