    Eta Kappa Nu (ΗΚΝ) is the electrical and computer engineering honor society of the IEEE, founded in October 1904 by Maurice L. Carr at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The organization currently has around 200 student chapters and several thousand members[5] and is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. In 2008, hitherto-independent HKN became an organizational unit of the IEEE, making membership in the IEEE a requirement for membership in HKN. Membership in HKN thus became equivalent to an "honor student" member category of IEEE membership.

    Being the second educational institute (after Hong Kong) to establish the IEEE-HKN outside the United States, the First Honor Society of IEEE for Electrical and Computer Engineering and IEEE- designated fields of interest, is established at National University of Singapore on 2 February 2012 (Saturday).

    IEEE NUS Student Branch is proud to be part of the contributing party to the installation of the first IEEE-HKN chapter in Singapore. The IEEE Singapore Section and NUS ECE Department have collaborated well in bringing the dream of establishing the First Honor Society in National University of Singapore a reality.

    Organized with partnership with:
    * IEEE-HKN
    * IEEE Singapore
    * NUS ECE Department
