Requirements for Nomination
Candidacy for membership in Eta Kappa Nu is by invitation only. An
invitation will be extended if you meet certain academic and
educational requirements, as outlined on this page. If you meet
these requirements, you should receive an invitation during a
Fall or Winter semester. If you do not receive this invitation,
we invite you to contact us, and we
will investigate your candidacy.
The requirements for candidacy in Eta Kappa Nu vary depending on
the prospective member's academic position.
Undergraduate students that are pursuing a Computer or Electrical
Engineering bachelor's degree at Brigham Young University are those
considered for membership in the Zeta Eta chapter of IEEE-HKN.
Students who have completed at least one-third of the

rank in the upper fifth of their class may be elected.
Students who have completed one-half of the degree
