Junior Undergraduate Students
The constitution intends that all chapters consider the top quarter of the Junior class for membership.
Senior Undergraduate Students
The constitution intends that all chapters consider the top third of the Senior class for membership. This will include additional members who were not invited as juniors, as well as those who were invited as juniors but did not accept membership at that time.
All graduate students are encouraged to become members of HKN. They have the right to hold office, serve on committees, and actively participate in chapter activities.
All faculty of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department with the rank of Assistant Professor or higher should be considered for HKN membership. Their position automatically qualifies them for membership, and your chapter will be stronger if all ECE faculty are HKN members.
Electrical and computer engineers who have a distinguished record in industry, government, education, or management may be initiated by your chapter. They need not be graduates of your school, nor is it necessary for you to inquire into their academic records. Approval of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department head and the faculty advisor are needed.
