Welcome to the website of the Tau Chapter of Etta Kappa Nu at University of Cincinnati.


Eta Kappa Nu (or HKN) is an honor society devoted to recognizing and promoting excellence in the fields of electrical and computer engineering. Maurice L. Carr, along with nine other students at the University of Illinois, founded Eta Kappa Nu on October 28, 1904. A far more extensive history is available
here at HKN’s official site.

Undergraduate students are eligible for membership if they are in the top 20% of the pre-junior EE/CE class, the top 25% of the junior class, or the top 33% of the senior class. Besides scholastic achievement, students are considered based on character, leadership, teamwork, and quality.

Currently, the organization has about 200 chapters with 250,000 members. The University of Cincinnati founded the Tau Chapter of HKN on May 26, 1923.
