Chapter Spotlight


The Chapters of Eta Kappa Nu:

Directory Pages
Chapters of IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu (IEEE-HKN) are
showcased on the Chapter Directory page of the
website. Over 260 Chapters have been chartered
worldwide since the society's founding in 1904.
These Chapters contribute to the profession and to
their local communities as they provide recognition
and service activities. Each one has an important role
to play within its host institution. In addition to basic
Chapter information, the directory pages
show the scope
of HKN and the
of each Chapter.
Chapter Directory
lists key chapter
Jacobs School of Engineering at the
along with other
University of California, San Diego
customized content
including photographs. An online update portal
facilitates the submission of new or updated content.
The main directory page consists of the update
portal and Chapter thumbnail images. The list can be
arranged by institution or filtered by IEEE region. For
example, the thumbnail image for Kappa Psi Chapter
at the University of California San Diego is their main
building for the Jacobs Schoolof Engineering.

Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) at UCSD is highly active in Jacobs
School of Engineering community, hosting 80+ events
an academic year. We strive to develop the technical,
academic, and professional skills of the engineering
community. Members and alumni form a tight knit
community where we help each other grow and give
back to the broader engineering community. Our
member base goes back to 2005, and has been rapidly
growing. We are now inducting over 80 members a
school year, and hope you can join us soon!
Chapters typically choose campus landmarks, school
symbols, or HKN images for this gateway image which
links to their individual page.
The individual chapter pages allow Chapters to highlight
their institutions and activities. Basic information about
the Chapter's charter date and IEEE region and section
affiliation are given. Chapters that have received the
HKN Outstanding Chapter Award are given the OCA
tag. A unique statement of about 100-200 words
describes the local activities, culture, and history for the
Chapter. (See information in blue box above.)
Other content includes a description of the Chapter
location, a location image, social media links, a
photograph gallery, and quotes from Chapter
members. The photograph gallery and the quotes
sections are especially valuable means to highlight
significant Chapter events and to record student and
department perspectives on HKN.
The Chapter Directory shows the international HKN
community and is an information source, an institution
promotion, and a Chapter archive. Each Chapter has
a unique story to tell, and the directory page gives a
Thanks to the Kappa Psi Chapter at the University of
California, San Diego for being our directory example.
Kappa Psi is the host of the 2020 Student Leadership
Conference during 6-8 November.

Make sure your Chapter has a presence and is current
on the IEEE-HKN Directory Page. An updated chapter
page is a core essential requirement toward Key
Chapter recognition!

IEEE-USA's March New Digital Comic Book
Introduces IEEE-USA's Two New
Engineering Superheroes!
Move over, Thor! Skedaddle, Spider-Woman! And take
your psionic energy with you!
There's a new duo of superheroes in town, ready to
battle the Forces of Evil, and they come from a long line
of geniuses. One of them, quite conveniently, is one of
the most prolific inventors and futurists in the history of
engineering. His identity-and how the current generation
of his imaginary descendants manages to save the day-

is just one of the compelling and action-packed aspects
of the first IEEE-USA e-comic book with superheroes who
are engineers.
Dedicated fittingly to "All engineers-and all engineers to
come," IEEE-USA created The Slate Twins: Caught in the
Currents with several audiences in mind. According to
Georgia Stelluto, IEEE-USA Publishing Manager and
Manager/Editor, IEEE-USA E-BOOKS, "Getting kids-young
and old-excited about engineering is our main goal. But
we also wanted to put the fun back into engineering for
Young Professionals, as well as for mid-career and more
experienced engineers."
All the technology-real and
fantasy-is designed to help fuel
imaginations, and to stimulate
readers' creativity, no matter their
ages. Much like other superhero
comic books, The Slate Twins:
Caught in the Currents, also
offers the benefits of stress
reduction, social representation
and intellectual stimulation for all
age groups. Get your comic book
