    Although it has never been defined, engineering economics is a discipline accepted by technical consultancies. It is basically used in making choices between alternative technologies with respect to the client's finances not the national economy. Outputs are assumed equal from all alternatives and are ignored. Because there has been no general agreement among engineers concerning what comprises en... View full abstract»

    From the earliest stages in the development of a hydroelectric scheme, economists, planners and engineers must work closely together. Within the engineering group, collaboration is even more essential and it will be most effective if civil, mechanical and electrical engineers have a sympathetic understanding of each other's technical problems. This collaboration should continue from the initial pl... View full abstract»
