Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) - Rho ChapterEta Kappa Nu is a nation-wide organization that is dedicated to encouraging and recognizing excellence in the electrical and computer engineering field. It was founded in 1904 at the University of Illinois by ten students as the vision of an organization recognizing academic excellence in electrical engineering.
The local Rho Chapter at the University of Colorado dates back to March 4, 1922, and consists of electrical engineering students who are excited about the possibilities of our major and are willing to share this with anyone who might ask. The chapter hosts several service and social events throughout the year, including a series of seminars that focus on teaching technical skills that are not typically taught but are very useful for the engineering student or practicing engineer. The chapter also hosts small social events where students can wind down from a tough day in the books.
The Rho Chapter is one of a select few which have won the HKN Outstanding Chapter Award two years in a row.
A non-profit organization, IEEE is the world's leading professional association for the advancement of technology. The IEEE name was originally an acronym for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. Today, the organization's scope of interest has expanded into so many related fields that it is simply referred to by the letters I-E-E-E (pronounced Eye-triple-E).
