In addition to 300+ Institute-wide student organizations, a number of ECE-specific organizations exist within the School. Involvement in student organizations is a great way to meet people, engage in outreach activities, and build your resume.
The goal of ECE Ambassadors is to increase ECE student involvement in admissions events, community outreach, and interaction with faculty, and to encourage the development of future Georgia Tech electrical and computer engineers.
Eta Kappa Nu is the honor society for Electrical and Computer Engineering. Eta Kappa Nu was founded in 1904 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and now has nearly 200 chapters. Eligibility depends mostly on scholarship, personal character, voluntary services, and distinguished accomplishments.
