Learning Outcomes

The main objective of this curricular unit is the familiarization of students with the issues of enterprises accounting and management. After this curricular unit the students should be prepared to perform economical and financial calculations related with the engineering activity (such as determining the cost of production, etc.), to understand the economic and financial reality of companies where they will work and to dialogue with their managers, economists and accountants. Also, cannot be forgotten the fact that a technical in Engineering and Industrial Management must needs enough habilitations to integrate multidisciplinary teams (and lead them if prompted to do so) and to be able to carry positions where management skills are important. In this curricular unit we will dwell with economic and financial aspects, but from the engineer perspective.
