About Us

What is Eta Kappa Nu?

Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is an International Honor Society for Electrical and Computer Engineers. Epsilon Omicron Chapter at the University of Delaware is one of over 200 student branches of HKN in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

How is it different than IEEE?

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc (IEEE) is a technical professional body while HKN is an academic and professional honors fraternity more akin to Tau Beta Pi.

What is the purpose of HKN?

While one of its purposes certainly is the stimulation and reward of scholarship, Eta Kappa Nu has a far broader purpose than merely to award a badge of distinction to scholars. As conceived by its founders and as carried forward by its membership during more than two generations, another aim is to assist its members throughout their lives in becoming better professionals as well as better citizens. In turn, it is still another purpose of the organization, that its members be a constructive force, helping fellow members and non-members alike to improve the standards of the profession, the courses of instruction, and the institutions generally where its chapters are established.

Membership

If you are eligible to join HKN you will be notified by the local chapter. Student's records and achievements are reviewed and considered and potential members are notified by normal and electronic mail of their invitation in December or January to be inducted in the Spring semester.
National requirements specify minimum standards for admission:

  • Juniors in the top 25% of their class
  • Seniors in the top 33% of their class
  • Graduate students with a 3.3 GPA or better
    If you accept your invitation you will be required to pay a one time dues of $50.00 and attend the banquet/initiation. Once initiated there are many opportunities for leadership and recognition, especially within the Junior class.
