Engineering economics, previously known as engineering economy, is a subset of economics concerned with the use and “application of economic principles” in the analysis of engineering decisions. As a discipline, it is focused on the branch of economics known as microeconomics in that it studies the behavior of individuals and firms in making decisions regarding the allocation of limited resources. Thus, it focuses on the decision-making process, its context and the environment

As a discipline though, it is closely related to others such as statistics, mathematics, and cost accounting. It draws upon the logical framework of economics but adds to that the analytical power of mathematics and statistics

Engineers seek solutions to problems, and along with the technical aspects, the economic viability of each potential solution is normally considered from a specific viewpoint that reflects its economic utility to a constituency. Fundamentally, engineering economics involves formulating, estimating, and evaluating the economic outcomes when alternatives to accomplish a defined purpose are available.

Since engineering is an important part of the manufacturing sector of the economy, engineering industrial economics is an important part of industrial or business economics. For this reason, the major courses that are covered in this course are:

  • The economics of the management, operation, and growth and profitability of engineering firms;

  • Macro-level engineering economic trends and issues;

  • Engineering product markets and demand influences; and

Break-even analysis, unit cost of production, cost-benefit analysis, feasibility studies, value analysis in designing & purchasing.

  • Time Value of Money: Simple interest, compound interest, cash flow diagrams, interest formulas, nominal versus effective interest rate, continuous compounding.

  • Depreciation and Depletion: Purpose of depreciation, types of depreciation, economic life and what can be depreciated?

  • Comparing Alternatives: Present economy, selection among machines, materials, processes, and designs, payback period method, present worth method, uniform annual cost method, rate of return method, alternatives having identical lives, alternatives having different lives.

Linear Programming in Economics



Economics is a complex subject filled with a maze of confusing terms and details which can be difficult to explain. Even economists have trouble defining exactly what economics means. Yet, there is no doubt that the economy and the things we learn through economics affect our everyday lives.

In short, economics is the study of how people and groups of people use their resources. Money certainly is one of those resources, but other things can play a role in economics as well. In an attempt to clarify all this, let’s take a look at the basics of economics and why you might consider studying this complex field.

The Field of Economics

Economics is divided into two general categories: microeconomics and macroeconomics. One looks at the individual markets while the other looks at an entire economy.

From there, we can narrow economics into a number of subfields of study. These include econometrics, economic development, agricultural economics, urban economics, and much more.

If you have an interest in how the world works and how financial markets or industry outlooks affect the economy, you might consider studying economics. It’s a fascinating field and has career potential in a number of disciplines, from finance to sales to the government.

Two Essential Concepts of Economics

Much of what we study in economics has to do with money and the markets. What are people willing to pay for something? Is one industry doing better than another? What is the economic future of the country or world? These are important questions economists examine and it comes with a few basic terms. You can find answers to all these questions from this course.

Requirements for the course

  • The course is designed for learners of all levels.
  • All concepts are introduced slowly and gradually, but comfort with thinking analytically will be helpful.

Who this course is for

  • IB students
  • A Level and AP students
  • You can be a student in high school or university, an entrepreneur, a lawyer, a banker or an engineer
  • This course is designed for people who are not coming from economics background, or just started studying Economics or studied Economics but forgot most of it
  • Anyone wanting to progress from Beginner to Advanced in Economics
