HKN Honor Society

 
The Lambda Mu Chapter of Eta Kappa Nu (HKN), the Electrical Engineering Honor Society at Texas A&M University at Qatar, was installed on 2 May 2012. On the same day, 19 electrical engineering students at Texas A&M at Qatar were initiated at the campus’s first initiation ceremony.
 
Dr. Hazem Nounou, Associate professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and HKN faculty advisor, said “One objective of establishing the Lambda Mu Chapter of HKN at TAMUQ is to honor and recognize individuals for their excellence in Electrical and Computer Engineering and the IEEE-designated fields of interest. Establishing this new chapter will provide the opportunity to continue to honor and recognize many electrical engineering students from Texas A&M University at Qatar over the years that follow.”
 
Dr. Mark Weichold, Dean and CEO of Texas A&M University at Qatar, said “This new chapter will provide special opportunities for close Faculty/Student interactions and relationships, and will provide opportunities for students to work together with other students and within their own governance structure that will help build needed skills for life that are not necessarily taught in a formal class environment.”
 
Eta Kappa Nu was founded on October 28, 1904 at the University of Illinois. On September 1, 2010, IEEE and Eta Kappa Nu Association merged to form IEEE-HKN. Currently, IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu comprises about 200 university chapters, many active member volunteers, and thousands of student members.
