Eta Kappa Nu is the international honor society for Electrical and Computer Engineers. There are approximately 200 established locations in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Outstanding persons are elected to Eta Kappa Nu primarily from the junior and senior classes of accredited undergraduate programs. Furthermore, graduate students and distinguished professional engineers are also eligible. Eligibility into Eta Kappa Nu is based on "marked ability, as evidenced by scholarship, personal character, useful voluntary services and distinguished accomplishments." Eta Kappa Nu was established to assist its members in their profession while at the same time helping members and non-members alike to improve the profession.
The Clemson Eta Kappa Nu Chapter, Zeta Iota, is currently sponsored by ECE Professor Dr. Wilson Pearson. This chapter focuses most of its attention to the undergraduate students that are majoring in electrical engineering and computer engineering. Some of its service projects include selling copies of professors' notes from previous semesters and sponsoring graduate school meetings to promote further education at Clemson University. For additional information please contact Dr. Pearson.
