On January 13, 2012, the first international chapter of IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu at HKU has been formed!
Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is the honour society for the electrical & electronic engineering in the US. Members are admitted to HKN based on their scholarship (at least top third) and other qualities in characters and societal contributions. The chapter installed at the University of Hong Kong (based in the Department of EEE) is the first international chapter of Eta Kappa Nu. The installation of the Chapter and the induction of the first batch of members was successfully held on January 13 at the Kowloon Shangri-la Hotel with the President of HKN and were attended by the President of IEEE with most of the members of the Board of Directors.
