IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu (IEEE-HKN), the honor society of IEEE, promotes excellence in the profession and in education with ideals of Scholarship, Character and Attitude.
It was founded on 28 October 1904 for students of electrical engineering. Today, IEEE-HKN promotes professional accomplishment, service, and development for students and professionals in electrical engineering, computer engineering, and other IEEE fields of interest.
The 263 IEEE-HKN chapters worldwide are your local link to the valuable resources offered by IEEE-HKN. Chapter activities may include guest speakers, workshops, seminars, as well as social functions.
IEEE-HKN is a lifetime designation. Alumni, as well as professional members, are encouraged to stay connected and take advantage of the many volunteer opportunities that IEEE-HKN offers.
IEEE-HKN is supported by the one-time induction fee of new members—but that only covers part of the annual operation of IEEE-HKN. Please consider donating to IEEE-HKN, so we can continue to foster scholarship, attitude, and character.
