At the beginning of each semester, the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department provides our chapter with the email addresses of those who are eligible to join HKN. Those who are eligible will then receive an email from HKN formally inviting them to attend one of two information sessions. Eligibility to join HKN is defined, based on year, as follows:
Sophomore Undergraduate Students
The top fifth of the sophomore class (having completed one fourth of the degree requirements) are invited to be inducted.
Junior Undergraduate Students
The top quarter of the junior class (having completed one half of the degree requirements) are invited to be inducted.
Senior Undergraduate Students
The top third of the senior class (having completed three fourths of the degree requirements) are invited to be inducted.
All ECE graduate students who have succesfully completed at least one semester at Texas A&M are invited to be inducted.
All faculty of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department with the rank of Assistant Professor or higher will be considered for IEEE-HKN membership. Their position automatically qualifies them for membership, and the Gamma Mu 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 the Gamma Mu chapter. They need not be graduates of TAMU, nor is it necessary to inquire into their academic records. Approvals by the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department head and the IEEE-HKN faculty advisor are needed.
If you believe you are eligible to join HKN but have not received an invitation email, please contact the Corresponding Secretary.
