University of Texas-Prairie View A&M, Zeta Lambda Chapter

Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) was founded in 1904 by Maurice L. Carr along with nine other students to recognize academic excellence in engineering. HKN was originally established to help Electrical Engineering graduates find employment and gain footholds in their careers. The Zeta Lambda Chapter was founded at Prairie View A&M University in 1973 to continue this long-lasting legacy. At PVAMU, we honor scholarship and Leadership amongst the Electrical and Computer Engineering Dept. Our vision is to utilize our leadership amongst the members to maintain and enrich the learning environment in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. To maintain our vision many activities have been done and are being planned. Those activities consist of a food drive, Pantherland day, departmental tutoring, bake sales, and membership resume books for career fairs and various seminars dealing with our department and career. The Chapter also works very closely with the IEEE and TBP branch in presenting company presentations throughout the semester. These events give members a number of chances to develop close contacts with both locally owned enterprises as well as international corporations.
