University of Alabama Huntsville, Theta Eta Chapter
The Theta Eta Chapter of IEEE-HKN was founded the fall of 1978 at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH). UAH was originally founded January 1950 as an extension of the UA to help with the Redstone Arsenal’s and NASA’s need for engineers and scientists. In 1961 Wernher von Braun helped create a research institute to provide advanced engineering and science curricula.
To this day UAH supplies the second largest military base in America, the Redstone Arsenal, and NASA with engineers and scientists. Theta Eta strives to contribute by building on the success of UAH to bring great minds to the field.
