The Bridge - Issue 3, 2020 - 4

Editors-in-Chief

THE BRIDGE, October 2020
Letter from the Editors-in-Chief
Dear Eta Kappa Nu Members and Friends,

Dr. Sahra Sedigh
Sarvestani
Beta Chapter

This issue of THE BRIDGE magazine has a theme of "The Future of
Renewable Energy." Our features discuss different technologies in which
renewable energy is generated, transmitted, and consumed. These
technologies reflect the significance of the IEEE tagline "Advancing
Technology for Humanity" and offer exciting career opportunities
for engineers. We appreciate the contributions of our guest editor
Dr. Roderick Jackson at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)
and of the authors of our three features. For more information on NREL,
see https://www.nrel.gov/.
While the feature papers look to the future, IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu pauses to
take a look back at the last ten years. After 106 years as an independent
organization, Eta Kappa Nu merged into IEEE to become IEEE-HKN on 1
September 2010. The 10th Anniversary content highlights events since
the merger. Our important emphasis on scholarship, character, and attitude
has been maintained. Among the changes are the chartering of chapters
outside the United States and the expansion of membership eligibility to all
IEEE fields of interest. Our chapters are making an enormous impact in their
academic communities through activities which promote excellence, provide
service to others, and develop professional skills.

Dr. Steve E.
Watkins
Gamma Theta Chapter

Chapters that excel in their administration and activities can earn annual
recognition. The figure shows examples of the award plaque for 1954,
1981, and 2009. This Outstanding Chapter Award (OCA) program was
the first award program for Eta Kappa Nu and the Gamma Chapter at Ohio
State University was the first recipient for the 1932-33 year. Through 2004,
a single chapter received the annual award with other chapters possibly
receiving honorable mention. Since 2005, multiple chapters are recognized
each year as co-recipients. For 2018-19, twenty-six chapters (approximately
the top ten percent of HKN chapters) were honored.
