These are the recommended books for our Engineering Economics university course:

Main Textbook

N. M. Fraser and E. M. Jewkes, Engineering Economics: Financial Decision Making for Engineers, 5th edition, Pearson, Toronto, Ontario, 2013

Supplementary Resources

D. G. Newnan, J. Whittaker, T. G. Eschenbach and J. P. Lavelle, Engineering Economic Analysis, 3rd edition, Don Mills, Toronto, Ontario, 2014.

J. A. White, K. E. Case and D. B. Pratt, Principles of Engineering Economic Analysis, 5th edition, Hoboken, NJ, USA, 2010.

I found the main textbook easy to follow. Hope this helps!
