There are many text books about engineering design and some include
project evaluation techniques. There are text books on accounting
methods and yet others on business management. This book does not aim to
replace these specialized texts but brings together the elements of
these subjects that young engineers working in industry - particularly
the construction industry and its customers - need to understand. Most
engineers learn about money the hard way: by experience in the
workplace. The authors having done this themselves recognized the gap in
engineers' education and set out to bridge it. This book is based on a
1996 course George Solt pioneered for final-year engineering
undergraduates. The book is written in an approachable style and gives
young engineers as well as mature engineers an insight into the way
engineering businesses run, the importance of capital and the problems
of cash flow.
