Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is the international honor society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), founded in October 1904 by Maurice L. Carr at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. As an honor society, our mission is to encourage and recognize excellence in the fields of electrical engineering, computer engineering, and computer science. Georgia Tech's Beta Mu Chapter was founded in May, 1941 and is well-known for active member involvement and student activities. We host a wide variety of social, corporate, and service events for the benefit of our members and our community.
First of all, Eta Kappa Nu is an internationally recognized honor society with over 260 chapters and 200,000+ lifelong members. It’s common to meet recruiters, coworkers, and professors who joined HKN when they were in college. Beyond the reputation, joining HKN is a great way to meet students and network with companies in an informal setting. From social events to company info sessions, we have it all!

HKN sells breadboards, wire kits, and parts kits required for undergraduate ECE classes. We buy in bulk so that we can sell these kits at a discounted price. Look for us on the 3rd floor of Van Leer during the 2nd week of classes Fall and Spring semesters!
