Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) - Rho Chapter

Eta 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.
