Eta Kappa Nu honor society wins Campus Life award

April 30, 2018

Clemson’s Zeta Iota chapter of Eta Kappa Nu (HKN), the international honor society for Electrical and Computer Engineers, was recognized with the Most Promising New Student Organization award at this spring’s Campus Life Awards banquet.

The Zeta Iota chapter was reinstated in the fall of 2017, thanks to the interest and efforts of students active in Clemson’s student chapter of the IEEE professional society. It is currently sponsored by  ECE Professor Dr. Apoorva Kapadia, and comprises over 30 members.

“I am so proud of the organization, and how far we have come over the two semesters. We have been working hard to create structure for the next school year, and hope to continue building on the progress we have made,” said Cameron Keats, current Clemson HKN president.

There are approximately 200 established locations in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Outstanding persons are elected to Eta Kappa Nu primarily from the junior and senior classes of accredited undergraduate programs. Furthermore, graduate students and distinguished professional engineers are also eligible. Eligibility into Eta Kappa Nu is based on “marked ability, as evidenced by scholarship, personal character, useful voluntary services and distinguished accomplishments.”

Eta Kappa Nu was established to assist its members in their profession while at the same time helping members and non-members alike to improve the profession. This chapter focuses most of its attention to the undergraduate students that are majoring in electrical engineering and computer engineering.
