Eta Kappa Nu strives to be a platform for recognizing outstanding Electrical and Computer Engineering students in the UT Austin ECE department. We extend our services to the department and the community through participation in multi-disciplinary extra-curricular programs throughout the semester. These programs offer community and leadership experiences to our members. We also organize several social events such as Pizzaramas, Signature Party, and Lake Party, which provide great opportunities for our pledges to freely mingle with HKN members, ECE faculty, and corporate representatives.
