The integration of a web-based interactive simulation into a Rowan University course on engineering economics was discussed. A game simulating economic decision-making was devised and integrated into a Rowan University course on engineering economics in 2001 and 2002. The game itself challenged students to not only learn engineering economic principles, but also to use them to make realistic economics decisions in a competitive setting, using a software that automated the game. The software was written using standard HTML and Active Server Pages with a Microsoft Access Database. The software was written in ASP, primarily because it ws built in feature of Microsoft Windows and was suitable for interacting with the large databases.
