About Us

Who we are and what we do.


Welcome to the homepage of the Kappa Chapter of Eta Kappa Nu at Cornell University! Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is the national Electrical and Computer Engineering honor society. Outstanding persons are elected to Eta Kappa Nu primarily from the junior and senior classes of accredited undergraduate programs. Our goal is both to improve the scholastic ability of ECE students and to reward those who have excelled in their studies. We organize social events, offer an extensive tutoring program and try to bridge students to a large and prestigious ECE network. The overall purpose of Eta Kappa Nu is to recognize and prepare future leaders both from a technical and professional standpoint, and in turn, to be a constructive force for both members and non-members alike.

Review Sessions

We host prelim and final exam review sessions for ECE 2100, 2200, 2300, and 3140 in order to help students to excel in these courses. Check out our calendar for a list of upcoming review sessions!

Tutoring

Our members are more than happy to set up tutoring sessions per request for students taking ECE courses wanting extra outside help in learning course material. Please feel free to contact us for more information!

Social Events

Every semester, we host a number of social events such as welcome-back events at the beginning of the school year and mixers for new ECE students. Check out our calendar for a complete list of events!

Workshops

We host special workshops to show interested students how to use various tools such as LaTeX, git, etc. We'd love to hear your suggestions on what you would like to see us offer in the future.

Volunteering

Our members participate in multiple volunteering events every semester in an effort to better the engineering community at Cornell as well as the town of Ithaca. We give back to thank the community that fostered our growth.

Networking

As an entity representing the community of ECE students at Cornell, we act as a liaison between students and professors and also work to connect undergraduates with ECE alumni.
