Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) is the student honor society of IEEE. Since its establishment, HKN has dedicated to encouraging and recognizing excellence in professional fields like Electrical and Computer Engineering for more than 100 years. The VA Gamma Pi chapter at the University of Virginia is housed in the ECE department at Thornton Hall, south-west of the beautiful academic village.
Besides our Hackathon events, we also provide learning opportunities for students based on interdisciplinary knowledge. Want to learn how to make an Android app for your history class? Want to make your personal website in less than a week? Want to make a Segway-like robot for entertainment? We are willing to show you how to use your imagination and turn your innovative ideas into reality using low-cost platforms like Arduino, etc.Learn More >>
