In a shady spot under a large cottonwood, on the campus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, our founders saw the need for an honor society – one that by invitation would recognize scholarship, character, and attitude. The vision of these inspired young men was to promote the highest ideals of the engineering profession and form an organization where professionals and students help each other.
Founders Day is a way for us to share the Eta Kappa Nu story, raise awareness of the value that an IEEE-HKN Chapter brings to a University, show the many ways a chapter serves fellow students and the community, and encourage industry to support us. Today’s IEEE-HKN students are the leaders of tomorrow. Let’s celebrate who we are and what HKN represents.
Congratulations to the Winner of the
“We Are in This Together” Chapter Video Competition
The Mu Beta Chapter at the Arab Academy For Science & Technology in Alexandria, Egypt is the winner of IEEE-HKN’s latest video competition is “We Are in This Together.” We asked our Chapters to show us what they have done to work, to mentor, to teach or to socialize together (even if it was virtually) during COVID-19. Thirteen chapters posted their entries to their social media channels with #HKNTogether so the entire HKN community could celebrate their strength and creativity. Go check them out!
