IEEE-HKN Mission and Purpose
IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu is a unique membership organization dedicated to encouraging and recognizing excellence in the IEEE-designated fields of interest. These include: Engineering, Computer Sciences and Information Technology, Physical Sciences, Biological and Medical Sciences, Mathematics, Technical Communications, Education, Management, Law and Policy. Members consist of students, alumni, and other professionals who have demonstrated exceptional academic and professional accomplishments.
Eta Kappa Nu (ΗΚΝ) is the electrical and computer engineering honor society of the IEEE, founded in October 1904 by Maurice L. Carr at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The organization currently has around 200 student chapters and several thousand members and is headquartered in Piscataway, NJ.
On September 1, 2010, HKN became an organizational unit of the IEEE, making membership in the IEEE a requirement for membership in HKN. Membership in HKN thus became equivalent to an “honor student” member category of IEEE membership.
