Members Profiles

becoming part of the great IEEE-HKN family; and
in the presence of many important academic
personalities. On that day, we had finally reached our
goal, but that was just the beginning of a new and
amazing adventure.
Do you have a best HKN story to share
(example: favorite program or activity)?

STUDENT PROFILE:

Silvia Vitali
Mu NU Chapter
Silvia Vitali earned her bachelor's degree in
Computer Engineering at Politecnico di Torino and
is currently studying for her Masters in Software
Engineering. During the first term of the Academic
Year 2016-2017, she and other students had
managed to create the first initial group of founders
of the future IEEE-HKN Mu Nu at Politecnico di
Torino. In March 2017, with the Installation and
Induction Ceremony the Mu Nu Chapter was
officially founded and Silvia was named its President.
Now, a new generation of officers is leading the
Chapter, organizing new amazing and interesting
activities.
What has it meant to you to be inducted
IEEE-HKN?
Becoming part of the IEEE-HKN network has been
an honor and a pleasure. In my case, my Induction
was the same day as the Installation Ceremony.
It was a very important day for my Chapter: after
having worked for months creating in our university
a new community based on IEEE-HKN principles,
we managed to officially start it. The process that
led to the installation ceremony has been long and
sometimes difficult, but this just made that day
more special. We planned the Installation Ceremony
for months, and when finally that day came, it was
exciting and touching to see our small community

THE BRIDGE

It is very difficult to choose just one HKN story. In
just one academic year, so many things happened,
and I took part in so many interesting situations that
it is difficult to select a single episode. Despite the
different public and private formative events we have
organized, I would like to tell a different story, one of
the HKN moments I will always remember fondly. It
was a day we decided to organize a picnic together.
After joking about the idea to have a lunch together
in one of the main parks of Turin, we finally decided
to put this idea into practice. We found a day in
which almost all Chapter members were present, we
cooked many different delicious dishes, we brought
guitars, blankets and a ball. Everything was ready, but
when the chosen day arrived, a few minutes after
we got to the park, it started to rain! What an unlucky
day! In few seconds all Chapter members were
standing in the pouring rain, freezing in the blankets
that were already soaked. However, this day is one
of the most grateful memories I have related to my
Chapter...after few minutes we found a covered
place to wait out the rain and after a while, the sun
came back, allowing us to continue to enjoy our day.
In the end, it was amazing! We had the possibility to
talk about future projects and Chapter activities in a
relaxed way, and we started to create a strong bond
that now still connects us.
Why did you choose to study the engineering field?
I like the idea to create something new, to bring
to life things that are not real yet. I started to be
interested in the engineering field because I thought
it can help me to reach this goal, and the more I
discovered about it, the more I was determined
