Eta Kappa Nu is the International Honor Society for Electrical and Computer Engineers. The organization was founded at the University of Illinois in 1904 to foster closer cooperation among students and others in the profession. The “Bridge” is the society’s international quarterly magazine (some copies included in the collection), keeps the members informed of activities, and provides contact between graduates and undergraduates. The Iowa State Nu Chapter was chartered in 1916.

Members are invited to join and must be a registered student in electrical and computer engineering at the top 1/4 of the junior class or 1/3 of the senior class.
