IEEE Eta Kappa Nu
Outstanding Young Electrical and Computer Engineer Award



The IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) Outstanding Young Electrical and Computer Engineer Award – formerly the Outstanding Young Electrical Engineer Award – has been presented annually since 1936. It is presented to exceptional young engineers who have demonstrated significant accomplishments in their career. Many recipients of this award have gone on to make major contributions to the electrical and computer engineering fields and hold noteworthy positions in academia, industry, and government.

The award title was updated in 2005, to reflect HKN’s adoption and recognition of computer engineering within the society.
