New Jersey Institute of Technology, Gamma Kappa Chapter

Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is the national Electrical and Computer Engineering Honor Society. Our chapter is called the New Jersey Gamma Kappa chapter which was established over 51 years ago at the Newark College of Engineering on May 23, 1953, and its office is located at Faculty building room 330. Our mission, in general, is to stimulate and reward scholarship while assisting and encouraging our members to grow professionally throughout their entire lives. Students who are eligible for membership are later required to be involved in pre-initiation activities where they have the opportunities to prove their outstanding qualifications beyond their scholarship achievements which include their capacity and willingness to hard work, and congeniality and adaptability for working in harmony with all sorts of people, in addition to many other criteria.
