Eta Kappa Nu
Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is an International Honor Society for Electrical and Computer Engineers. Members represent the outstanding juniors and seniors from universities around the world and distinguished professional engineers. The Beta Eta Chapter is NC State’s local chapter.
Amongst other community service initiatives, the HKN members provide free tutoring to ECE undergraduate students, offering peer support and ensuring that every student is able to grasp the core electrical or computer engineering material.
As conceived by its founders and as carried forward by its membership during more than two generations, HKN aims to assist its members throughout their lives in becoming better professionals as well as better citizens. Its members are expected to be a constructive force to improve the standards of the profession, the courses of instruction, and the institutions where its chapters are established.
ECE is host to a variety of student organizations with goals to build leadership, provide future career opportunities, excel at international competitions, and dive deeply into specific engineering subject matter. These organizations even do everything from building race cars to rockets to submarines.

The ECE Student Ambassador program started during the 2015-2016 academic year and is a team of diverse and dynamic student leaders committed to the NC State motto of Think and Do!
Ambassadors are representatives of the Department and University and exemplify professionalism and campus pride. Students chosen for the program eagerly contribute their time facilitating campus tours and hosting special events targeted to prospective students and their families, industry representatives, and the community at large.
