Freshman and Sophmore Undergraduate Students
Freshman and sophmore students are not eligible to join Eta Kappa Nu. We do encourage you though to take an early interest in Eta Kappa Nu. You are welcome to contact the current officers with information and questions.
Junior Undergraduate Students
The constitution intends that all chapters invite the top quarter of the Junior class into membership.
Senior Undergraduate Students
The constitution intends that all chapters invite the top third of the Senior class into membership. This will include additional members who were not invited as juniors, as well as those who were invited as juniors but did not accept membership at that time.
All graduate students are encouraged to become members of HKN. They have the right to hold office, serve on committees, and actively participate in chapter activities.
All faculty of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department with the rank of Assistant Professor or higher should be considered for HKN membership. Their position automatically qualifies them for membership, and your chapter will be stronger if all ECE faculty are HKN members.
Electrical and computer engineers who have a distinguished record in industry, government, education, or management may be initiated by your chapter. They need not be graduates of your school, nor is it necessary for you to inquire into their academic records. Approval of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department head and the faculty advisor are needed.
