Professional membership in IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu, like student membership, must be earned.
Candidates must embody the core values of Eta Kappa Nu, namely outstanding scholarship, impeccable character, and a dedication to lifelong learning and service. Membership will be based on the candidate’s record of contributions to the field, demonstrated leadership, and community service.
Professional candidates must be invited by an HKN Chapter at a university or be nominated by a current HKN member for induction into the Eta Chapter of the IEEE-HKN Board of Governors.
University Chapter leaders determine eligibility to join their university Chapters. Individuals who wish to be inducted into a University Chapter should contact the Chapter directly or HKN headquarters.
