Setting the Scene


 Lets start with a simple question ? What is
Economics ? Anyone ?

 There are variety of definitions of Economics but let


me place the most relevant one for this course

 A social science that studies how individuals, firms,


governments and nations make choices on
allocating scarce resources to satisfy their
unlimited wants

Why Engineer Need to know about


Economics ?
 Individuals, Engineers, Managers all made choice
among various alternatives in their every day life
..Any Example ?

 Mostly these choice is associate with money (more


specifically capital or capital funds) but money (or
resources) is limited

 The selection of any choice depends on the


expected future return of each alternative

 Engineers plays a vital role in “such decision” due


to their ability and experience to design, analyze
and synthesize
