Thank you for your interest in Eta Kappa Nu (HKN). Eta Kappa Nu is the student honor society of IEEE and is dedicated to encouraging and recognizing excellence in the IEEE-designated fields of interest.
The members consist of students, alumni, and other professionals who have demonstrated exceptional academic and professional accomplishments. Student members are selected on the basis of scholastic standing, character, and leadership. Professional members are inducted by nomination of a current member and by virtue of their contributions. The founding principle of "identifying and recognizing the future leaders of our profession" has resulted in the high concentration of IEEE-HKN alumni in top-level positions at every major technical corporation in the U.S. and around the world. Our alumni have a higher level of advanced degrees, frequently are published and hold patents, are entrepreneurs, have founded corporations, and hold leadership roles in academia and at the highest levels of the profession. Truly the vision of the founding members has been realized in the success of those who have been chosen and have accepted the challenge and responsibility of the designation Eta Kappa Nu.
HKN Rho Chapter is the official IEEE-HKN Chapter of CU Boulder.
