Accounting Basics for the Engineer targets the engineer and engineer-owner/manager in outlining key accounting and financial concepts. Simple and basic topics are introduced to aid the professional practitioner in dealing with non-engineering professions such as commercial bankers, investment bankers and accountants. The course participant will learn the differences between: cash flows versus profits, return of investment versus return on investment, accrual versus cash accounting, and book versus market values.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
