Eta Kappa Nu Beta Chapter
Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is an Honor Society for students who excel in the field of Electrical and Computer Engineering.The Beta Chapter was formed in 1905 and has since been continually recognized as one of the best HKN chapters. HKN Beta is best known at Purdue for the member staffed HKN Student Lounge. The chapter also hosts companies for recruiting events, runs a student lab space, performs community service, and hosts weekly social events for members and friends
Membership in HKN is limited to the top third of seniors, the top fourth of juniors, and the top fifth of sophomores. Gradutate students are also eligible for membership beginning in their second semester of graduate study. Invitations to join are sent out each semester with details on the initiation process.
2nd Annual Alumni Networking Event: 9/9/17 6PM
Beta Chapter will again be hosting a networking event (and reunion, if you want to think of it that way) on Saturday, September 9th. This is the Saturday before industrial roundtable, so anyone heading to Purdue on their company's recruiting team will be able to attend with little extra effort.
By giving Beta members access to some of the best and brightest in the field of electrical engineering (the alumni), it gives a great recruiting tool for Beta. By getting access to some of the best and brightest electrical engineering students, it gives alumni (and your company) a great advantage in talent recruiting. Then there's the personal networking benefits and seeing old friends.
If you're going to be in town, plan to come for this event. If you aren't (yet) planning on being at Purdue this fall, consider coming out. You can register here.
