Eta Kappa Nu Honor Society

Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is the international electrical and computer engineering honor society dedicated to encouraging and recognizing excellence in IEEE-designated fields of interest. The Lehigh Valley HKN chapter is an active student organization committed to enhancing the undergraduate student experience in the ECE department by mentoring underclassmen and providing networking opportunities across students, faculty and alumni. Activities of the organization also extend beyond the department through joint events with other fraternities and student organizations at Lehigh, and additionally building relationships with various schools in South Bethlehem. More details can be found in the IEEE HKN brochure.

Lehigh IEEE student Branch

The IEEE is the world's largest professional association for the advancement of technology. The Lehigh IEEE student branch, established in 1902, facilitates professional development and personal skill building, and organizes social events for students and faculty. Students in the IEEE chapter get to learn what electrical and computer engineers do in industry and academia, gain experience in reading schematics, prototyping circuits and soldering, and interact with other groups such as the HKN and the Robotics team. More details can be found in the Lehigh IEEE chapter brochure.

Robotics @ ECE

Every year, Brown University holds an undergraduate robotics competition and invites many universities from the Northeast to participate. For the past few years, Lehigh has sent a team to compete in the annual event. The goal of the competition is to build an autonomous mobile robot capable of traversing a maze. Being part of the robotics team is a great way to get some actual engineering experience outside of the classroom as an underclassman. Additionally, it provides an opportunity to learn about engineering topics that may be outside of your chosen discipline. More details can be found inside the Robotics @ ECE brochure.
