The transition from grad school to industry isn’t easy. What are the opportunities pitfalls, challenges and how to overcome them? We invite graduate students, graduating seniors, and young engineers to join us for the HKN Pathways Program, where we focus on this transition. In partnership with ECEDHA, we are bringing together students and professionals to discuss personal career paths, share hard-earned insights, and offer practical advice for young engineers
Why this Program?
Unlike programs offered at your university, you will meet and network with leaders from a wide cross section of industry, academia, corporations, and young engineers like you looking to enter industry. ECEDHA offers access and an audience unlike any other.

Outstanding Chapter Award
The IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu (IEEE-HKN) Board of Governors has conferred upon 26 student chapters the distinction of Outstanding Chapter for 2019. This represents the top 10 percent of all HKN chapters worldwide.
The Outstanding Chapter Award (OCA) recognizes excellence in IEEE-HKN chapters for their activities. The award is based on the content and description of chapter activities that are contained in the Annual Chapter Report, which summarizes the chapter’s activities from the previous academic year.
