years old on 28 October 2020), and to give back
in other ways.
At its core, IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu is an honor society
dedicated to recognizing students and professionals
who have proven themselves through outstanding
scholarship, unimpeachable character and the positive
attitude that propels them to serve others.

to our members throughout their careers," says
Edward A. Rezek, 2020 IEEE-HKN President.
Programs and services, such as the Student Leadership
Conferences, the Pathways to Industry professional
development series, the annual awards programs, and
the electronic edition of THE BRIDGE magazine, have
been added or improved to better meet the needs of
its members and the communities they impact.

"IEEE-HKN is never given; it is earned," Ostin says, who
adds that the HKN designation is lifelong, and those
who have earned it are expected to give of their time
and talents for the betterment of their local and
global community.
In 2019 alone, IEEE-HKN student members logged
more than 85,000 of service to the society, their
communities and others, Ostin says. The impacts
of the Chapters are particularly great within the host
educational institutions.

Leadership training, networking opportunities, a career
center and chapter mentoring programs are offered
to help develop "the complete technical professional,"
says IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu Director Nancy Ostin, who
recently celebrated her eighth year with IEEE and has
led the society through a period of solid growth
and transformation.

Projects have included The HKN Epsilon Xi chapter at
Wichita State University partners with "Go Baby Go," an
organization that adapts ride-on vehicles for children
with disabilities, to engineer and build customized cars
for toddlers based on their specific needs. The Mu
Eta Chapter and IEEE Student Branch at University of
KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa organized "Women in
Technology and Engineering Careers" talks for more
than 200 local high school female students.

The honor society is celebrating the anniversary of
this successful partnership through the rest of 2020,
encouraging all members-students and professionals-
to raise the profile of IEEE-HKN through social media,
coordinate service projects with IEEE Student Branches
or within IEEE regions or sections, contribute to a

The honor society has been tested in 2020 like never
before: The global pandemic demanded that the
primarily in-person business model that IEEE-HKN has
used needed to be moved online so that Chapters
could maintain operations, and members could live up
to the promises they made when inducted. IEEE-HKN
