Kansas State University, Beta Kappa

Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is an international Electrical Engineering & Computer Engineering honor society with chapters at approximately 200 locations in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Kansas State University is home to the Beta Kappa Chapter. While one goal of the society is the stimulation and reward of scholarship, Eta Kappa Nu has a far broader purpose than merely to award a badge of distinction to scholars. Eta Kappa Nu and its members are dedicated to helping fellow members and non-members alike, improve the standards of the profession, the courses of instruction, and the institution in general, where its chapters are established. Its members are primarily comprised of outstanding Juniors and Seniors in ECE. To be considered for membership in HKN you must be a Junior in the top quarter of your class or a Senior in the top third of your class and have successfully passed Circuit Theory 1.
