Chapter News
22 Chapters Recognized for Excellence
IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu (IEEE-HKN)
Announces Recipients of the 2020-2021
Outstanding Chapter Awards
IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu (IEEE-HKN), the honor society of
IEEE, is excited to announce the recipients of its 20202021
Outstanding Chapter Award.
This prestigious award is presented to IEEE-HKN
Chapters in recognition of excellence in their Chapter
administration and programs. Just 22 of the 268 IEEEHKN
Chapters worldwide were recognized for their work
during the 2020-2021 academic year.
Chapters are selected based on their activities,
community service and outreach, and the impact
they have had on the department, the university, and
the community. Of vital concern to the Outstanding
Chapter Awards evaluation committee are activities that
advance professional development; raise instructional
and institutional standards; encourage scholarship and
creativity; provide a public service, and generally further
the established goals of IEEE-HKN.
Plaques were presented on Monday, 28 March 2022
at the IEEE-HKN Awards Reception during the 2022
ECEDHA Annual Conference held in New Orleans, LA.
Mu Nu Chapter Uses
IEEE Grant to Improve
Natural Resource Usage
The IEEE Humanitarian Activities Committee (HAC)
provides a suite of resources that inspire and enable
IEEE volunteers around the world to carry out and
support impactful humanitarian technology and
sustainable development activities at the local level.
One mechanism for this is the funding and support
of such projects.
In 2021, the HKN Mu Nu Chapter at Politecnico
di Torino University in Italy applied for and received
a grant through a program that supports grassroots
projects that utilize technology to address pressing
needs of local communities.
Background: Over the past six years, the Politecnico
di Torino University has been working to improve
resource usage and waste reduction. The team of
volunteers for this project works with two other
Former IEEE-HKN Student
Governor Sandro Sartoni
is part of the ThreekECO
team developing the bot.

university associations to
monitor recycling waste quality.
Together, the students have
launched ThreekECO,
a mixed hardware and software
system that interfaces with
users through a Telegram
bot. The bot will show them
where to dispose of their waste
thanks to an image recognition
algorithm. The bot also will log
data directly from trash bins through sensors and
Wi-Fi connected microcontroller units to understand
if the user correctly recycled the item.
Progress: The team has conducted several studies
on the recycling bin to understand where to put
sensors and has started writing firmware that
will allow retrieving data from such sensors.
Work continues.
