The IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu (IEEE-HKN) Board of Governors has announced the 27 student chapters which have received the distinction of Outstanding Chapter for 2018.

The Outstanding Chapter Award (OCA) recognizes excellence in IEEE-HKN chapters and is based on the content and description of chapter activities summarized in the Annual Chapter Report. For this award, there is a strong emphasis on service activities to the department, school, community, and chapter.

Additionally, it is equally important for the chapters to promote the goals of IEEE-HKN by inducting as many possible eligible members in the IEEE designated technical fields and participating in IEEE-HKN student chapter projects. 

The awards were presented on March 29, 2019 during the annual conference of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association (ECEDHA). Each winning chapter received an engraved plaque.
