Electronic Enterprise Engineering Program

The multi-disciplinary Electronic Enterprise Engineering (EEE) program seeks to help organizations prosper in the rapidly changing electronic marketplace. EEE will develop techniques, methodologies and architectures for enterprise engineering and train the next generation of enterprise engineers in these skills.

Electronic Enterprise Engineering: Program Goals

The Electronic Enterprise Engineering program strives to help organizations fully utilize computer support in operations and decision making. We propose a process-oriented approach that will enable enterprises (companies, educational institutions and non-profit organizations, governmental agencies, etc.) to: The three goals interact with each other. Effective process engineering requires broad access to an organization's information base for process design, on-going analysis and enactment. The combination of improved processes and the integrated tool environment our EEE architecture provides for process engineering will make many workers more effective at their jobs. Additionally, processes which embed standard rules as well as well thought-through decision options would enable employees to perform their jobs with less management supervision and greater flexibility. Here too, greater access to information, along with processes to help evaluate this information, will empower employees with more autonomy. The EEE approach should empower an enterprise to make the best use of its informational assets for operating effectively in this new era of electronic commerce.

Electronic Enterprise Engineering: Program Structure

At the New Jersey Institute of Technology, we view Electronic Enterprise Engineering as more than an academic research effort. We have an industry consortium through which we shall conduct requirements analyses and field studies. We also are developing a full curriculum so we can train an EEE-cognizant work force. The EEE program spans multiple departments and research centers at NJIT, and eventually at other partner universities.

To this end we actively are developing the following components of the EEE program:

NJIT Commitment

NJIT has committed ten faculty positions to the Electronic Enterprise Engineering program for the next five years.

Affiliated Researchers and Practitioners

The following researchers participate in the Electronic Enterprise Engineering program: We welcome other interested faculty, researchers and practitioners to consider joining our program. We invite everyone to join our weekly seminar series and to get to know us better.


We are seeking researchers at all levels as well as visiting practitioners interested in Electronic Enterprise Engineering and its diverse subfields. For further information, see our recruiting Web site.
