Professional & Honor Societies

Eta Kappa Nu Honor Society
Eta Kappa Nu is a national honorary Electrical Engineering Society which was founded at the University of Illinois in 1904. There are 125 chapters and more than 100,000 members here in the United States. Academic excellence coupled with a well rounded character are the two basic qualities used to judge membership. Specifically regarding academics, juniors must be in the top 25% of their class and seniors must be in the top 33% of their class to qualify for acceptance.

The members of the society in general help their fellow undergraduates by tutoring and organizing special presentations. They also have several social and professional activities during each year. Lehigh's Chi Chapter of HKN (Eta Kappa Nu) is open to Electrical and Computer Engineering students in the ECE Department.
The faculty advisor is Professor Frey.
